Results of the compromise agreement take-up are in. Only a handful - less than 20 - have not signed with nearly 300 moving over to BA terms.

Well done guys - with unknown battles to be fought in the future I'm sure we are better working together.

Welcome to BA.

Thanks for the welcome I for one am enjoying life at BA already
As you eluded too it is great to put a line under this and become a united front for any future battles.

Congrats to both the BA and former BMI guys and gals

Has there been a bit of post pruning by the mods?

Anyhoo, it's a sad day for the baby people who have all been dumped on the metaphorical scrapheap with seemingly nary a comment nor whimper from either mainline or BA crews.

Pretty sickening really, especially as a good proportion of the baby crews were originally from mainline and got shafted on not only the job front, but also on the redundancy package too.

Good work BALPA, you really earned your 1% this time...

Not only are baby pilots all on the scrap heap. They can't even show there displeasure about the situation on here.

Very unfortunate for the baby pilots. On a slightly different note what happened to the BMI 330 pilots?

Nothing - they are still flying for BMI/BA and will simply carry on flying the 320 when W12/13 starts.

Any news on recruitment for people waiting in the pool, or is it still more of the same, wait and see?

"Old News"

Found this in Flight International for the 13th June 1968. I hope they don't mind me posting it here:-

There are no indications that the very top level of the BoT favour a BOAC-BEA merger

and

BEA pilots have amassed a 50,000 strike fund, growing at 5,000 per month, to back up their claim for salaries up to 6,800 p.a. for two-crew One-Eleven operation.

Funny how things turn out
