The Age limit?
What is the age limit for BA?
I know officially they cannot discriminate ......
What is it unofficially, as they used to retire at 55.

Smokie,

I would doubt there is an age limit; I joined at 38 as a DEP with only a few hundred hours, non-rated. Retirement age limit now 65.

Seem to remember in the last big round of DEP recruitment, there were a couple of guys in their 50s.

For BA, there are advantages in recruiting older as they're not going to be on the highest payscales and stay forever given attrition has been very low. Attrition rates may change however.

Short haul review due to report in september I think. I however have been expecting it for weeks and nothing happens. I now for the life of me can't make out if I have made up this time frame or been told it by others. The emails to soften us up were sent out months ago. Anyone actually know?

I also went for stage one tests on Wednesday, not heard anything either. I know someone who attended Mondays assessment who got a "yes email" the next morning, so I am starting to think no news is not good news!!
