For us we just don't see a good future in the UK.
Good luck at Qatar - there are plenty of threads in the ME section, but this one is about BA.
As my Mother used to say "don't come crying to me". No whining when you get to Qatar, ok?!

Ok you meant 200k equivalent with a bit of reversed maths.
Fair enough best of luck I've only spent an hour there.

Think of all that extra flight pay at Qatar as you have to fly round the ME region just to get in and out ;-)

Maybe your mother should have taught you to come across as a bit less of a ? This chap/chap-ess is discussing the pros and cons of BA Direct Entry from their background and experience. And in the vacuum of new developments in the recruitment department, only punctuated by meager speculation here, I can't see it being a bad thing. Meanwhile, feel free to add some useful info of your own instead of using "good luck" as a placeholder for some other less pleasant sentiment.

The window for the internal bidding process only closed a couple of weeks back, the collated bids are available to those in house so they can make sure their preferences have been correctly recorded.. Once that's been done (end of this month) it will then be down to the long suffering/hard working lady who organisies all this to crunch the numbers, no doubt after umpteen inputs from network planning, etc

Last time I looked the results weren't due to be published until November...sorry if that wasn't the timescale you were hoping for.

You can feel free to be less pessimistic about what people mean when expressing sentiments on an online forum. FWIW, I actually meant it... But then again, this is PPRuNe, perhaps I should add "for real" after I say anything nice. The point I am making is that PPRuNe is full of people who seek advice/validation/whatever about going to the ME. They never listen (I am guilty as charged) and are invariably back to complain about it. I would say that was something useful to consider.

Has anyone managed to ascertain what our actual time in the pool is now? I.e - the original year + 6 months + extra year = 2.5 years?

I wonder how many in the hold pool will just see this as a non starter now and either look at other airlines or stay for upgrades at current one.

No DEP for the longhaul side or internal moves only?
