A380 only possible for 320 rated guys? Or also nonrated?

Basic pay at PP1 is identical, but you'll earn more in TAFB payments (Time away from base). How much more you'll take home as a result is dependent on your spending habits down route to a degree!

Also open to non rated, but the fleet doesn't usually take many DEPs. Maybe 20 in the past 5 years or so.

Take Home:
July £4880
August £4960

PP3 mind. No overtime. Wild horses couldn’t drag me in on days off.

There’s another reason for that (commuting) my time at home is more valuable than they could ever pay

Anyone else also in the holdpool that know roughly how long it's taking to get a call?

Thanks!

Apparently A320 peeps are getting very quick dips in the pool. Others a bit longer (but not that long).

I heard they’ve changed the system so you get one email with an offer, 24 hours to accept and then kicked out of the pool if you reject.

Yeah, I got that email too! I don't think they want people hanging back for LH offers if they have been given a SH start date...

Hopefully not long!

How long are people waiting on average for their sim assessment? Been waiting approx 3 weeks now for a sim slot.... is that pretty much the case for everyone at the moment?

thanks in advance

Heard recently that BA SH is really struggling due to Pilot shortage. Is that true? I’m not sure what exactly was meant by struggling? Are they cancelling any flights?

Nothing is being cancelled, but we've been working our nuts off. It has been a very busy year and there are a lot of new guys/girls starting on the 320 at the moment.

Might not be news to you Barcli but it’s happening in every industry in every company so get over it. Got a mate who’s got a good job in the Home Office, he was telling me their official mantra is “do more with less”. We’re actually reasonably insulated in the aviation industry comparison with the demands of the real world..

(listen to me being the positive voice of reason for once )

I was in for my 6 monthly reset at the weekend and the 767 sim was absolutely flat out with recruitment. Apparently it's been that way for the last 6 months or so.

We are slightly insulated at BA that's for sure. But the penny smart pound stupid culture is still rife throughout the business.

And "Do More With Less".....I've just thrown up a bit. The people that usually come up with such slogans are often living the high life with gold plated final salary pensions to look forward to.
