BA Cityflyer Captain


Just wondering what are the working conditions like for Captain in BA Cityflyer these days? Roster / pay / difference between LCY & EDI base?

Is EDI base popular?

Just wondering if ANYONE has any info regarding Captain conditions at BA CityFlyer? I am more than happy to receive PM regarding this and/or sample roster etc. I don't know anybody connected with this particular airline so PPRuNe my only source of info at this stage!

My apologies for pushing this to the top again.
