Totally inaccurate I'm afraid. The Kos incident was a MYT PTF cadet who left the company shortly afterwards.

The CEOs relative didn't work for MYT, he was TCX (as was the CEO) and moved on several years ago and I believe he now flys 380s in the desert.

Other than that you're bang on.

"Strike" a match now, seems these managements really enjoy upsetting their staff, maybe a pay rise would have been ok if they didn't spend so much on tribunals etc.

Don't your contracts have scope clauses that would prevent this type of silliness?

Must be one heck of a rich airline, yet more spending in legal fees, haven't learnt anything from their last two tribunal loses, why don't they just fire the flight ops team that could the cause of all of this

well done TCX pilots - strike action cannot be easy but the UK pilot community are 100% behind you. BALPA has shown it has teeth and the pilot group the determination to fight. Lets hope that all airlines take note. Pilots will not be pushed around. Enough is Enough

Going on strike with Monarch having just gone down wouldn't have been good PR for TC pilots IMHV. Wasn't it a few years ago that TC were in a similar position?

I'm always somewhat puzzled by the argument that workers (not just pilots) in dispute should get the public "on side". It matters not a jot what the public think.

Unless "the public" are the fare-paying customers who pay your wages.

Then it matters. A lot.

The travelling public are not going to base a decision on whether or not to fly with an airline on whether they agree or disagree with the reasons for a strike by its pilots. It is a ridiculous line of argument.

The Public also need educating sometimes. Some of the recent decisions in various elections, worldwide, might have been based on mis-information and they might have been suckered by the side that were better at clouding the real issues than the other.

The EU has rendered scope a redundant concept. All one big happy family in which the less than able line up to take any job away from those more proficient albeit at a cheaper price.

I have/had scope protection, so perhaps did you. Euro types no longer enjoy that level of protection. Not sure they ever did.

Can you (or indeed anyone) provide any evidence that this is the case? This is very much an assumption - however well meant.

There is a growing recognition that the last two decade have seen a significant disparity of wealth accumulation between the people at the top of industry and the 'workers'. Pilots are part of the 'workers'. The majority of the public are 'workers' and are therefore, in effect on the same side. The media may seek to undermine a striking workforce (in this case Pilots) but I think public opinion has shifted significantly and therefore your statement may hold more fear than truth!

So in the current round of recruitment, what chance of getting a base at Gatwick? Where are the spaces? Future plans?
Many thanks.
