For those that have asked the chances of going straight to MAN are slim to zero. Everybody joins at LHR and on day one you put your name on the waiting list. The base is full of F/O’s so dead mans shoes. With the 330 operation scaled back from MAN for the winter, most crews are back at LHR but most will get back for the summer.

And PS part time is not being discontinued. However with the entry of the 350 this year there is a requirement that to go on it early you need to be full time for a year, and then limited to 85% thereafter to fly both the 330/350.

Naturally there are many on 75% who have politely declined to go to the new shiny jet !

Thanks for the info. I was under the impression MAN became a permanent year-round base last year, is that not the case?

Out of interest is the aim to still retire all of Virgins 747 fleet by the end of this year?

Think 2 years-ish and no more (or very little) recruitment onto it. All Boeing recruits apparently going 787
