Yup. Good of them to finally send something though.

I've not had an email either, been swimming since November. Would appreciate if someone could summarise it for us.

Zero change since what we were told in January was the gist of it

Yep, zero change from the last update.

Confirmed some of the stuff on here - part time has been offered, FPP courses slip to later this year, no dep recruitment expected this year.

And a request to not post rumours on social media sites.

Cheers guys. Naturally I was crossing my fingers for the opposite but at least they've broken the silence. FPP courses definitely just later this year and not next?

Doesn't say either way. "The FPP graduates will now be joining us later in the year" is the phrase they used, in my email at least.

My reading of the tone is that BA are hedging their bets as to whether they'll need us next year. But I have been pulled up for my negativity on here before!

Check your junk folder diligently. The email that went out in October/November 2015 asking people to confirm their hours I never received as it had been filtered straight to junk. Think it cost me a long haul offer.

Being 150 million down in 24hrs isn't going to help.

You never know... Alex might have just put one bo*"ock on the chopping block, could result in changes at the top - which could go either way.

Edit: in his defence, he's standing firm while apologising profusely. He's not hiding, strong positive leadership is exactly what's needed.

You are joking aren't you? The man is hated by 99% of BA staff and was missing in action most of the weekend apart from bizarre youtube videos dressed like Bob the Builder, or Yammer rants peeving even more people off..

Really Love joy?

To me his response was too little too late and totally insincere.

Not good.

The share price is still the highest it has been for years 'thanks' to that man.
