Plenty of Airbus Emirates & Cathay guys unsettled at the moment, I expect they could fill their airbus requirements with a couple of overseas roadshows like BA did.

I doubt they would need to do a roadshow for CX, would be surprised if they didnít have coverage for all 330 and 777 rated slots already in the applications from those looking to exit HK!

Have there been any interviews yet? And also has the moral on the line been affected by the Monarch fast trackers? Or still good moral? Cheers

Monarch fast trackers
They'll be bottom of the seniority list

Pay rising again by the looks of it. A friend just notified me that a 2018 4% pay increase is out for a BALPA ballot next week with an offer of a RPI plus increase for 2019. It also looks like the Virgin BALPA constitution is changing for the better and the Union is getting back on track with the replacement of the old guard with new reps coming forward. Good to see the Union making progress in VAA. A new Company Council, fresh ideas and strong Union leadership. 2018 looks like being a promising year in VAA.

Thanks skymonkey1 great post!

Akrapovic I was asking because of the negativity on the other thread from people in the hold pool or who applied before the monarch interviews was all. I realise they are at the bottom of the seniority list but I guess they will be above the people who applied a while back. Just wondering if anyone outside of Monarch has had interviews/start dates or the standard be patient email.

Surely that would affect morale amongst those trying to get in, rather than those already in?

Probably, but at least they have jobs and aren't at risk of a knock on the door.

WOW! Good for them. Nice to see that it wasn't just 'lip service'.

I donít think Virgin have done anything amazing, they had a sudden need for 50 Airbus rated guys with imideate start dates, if that need had not arisen they would not have given anyone a job, why exactly are we blowing smoke up their arse?

I disagree , people wait a very very long time to get a job with Virgin , even guys from Your outfit (BA) try and get across . For virgin to bypass guys with applications in already who are already Airbus rated is a very very strong thing to do . As I said , thankyou Virgin and I hope the guys in the pool understand that we are incredibly grateful

They bypassed the hold pool because you guys had no notice periods to work. I would imagine there are quite a few people in the hold pool that don’t share in your delight, anyway its good news for the lucky few.

It is by the way moving to read Snapper posts, back in the Monarch era and now, in endless adoration of his employers, till the bitter end.
I remember as it was yesterday when he was arguing, one week before its collapse, that Monarch not only was not in a crisis, but was actually going to expand a lot soon...
If I was an employer, I would definitely want him in my company

All the negative posts, i'm sure you'd pick a fight if it was just you and your shadow in the room...take it for what it is.

I will pick a fight when I see something that is unfair and unjust and this my friend stinks. But obviously the people who have benefited or lost nothing will disagree.
