ID50, Sorry, my fault. I am not actually involved in this and didn't get quite the right message across. As I understand it it is currently limited to BA as those running it are all BA connected, but intended to cover other airlines as soon as possible. See FAQs 4 and 8 on their website. Former BA pilots reading, please consider helping.

Now why could that be? A320 would be the fleet.

Short or pilots? Only got a email from BALPA this week saying BA had told them there is still a headcount surplus based on the fleet plan they don’t have and won’t share.

The fleet plan we were promised back in June?

staff I'm not sure, but pilots i believe it's around 450 (400 full time equivalent). that's both compulsory and voluntary redundancies together.

I was told the total reduction in Headcount Equivalent (so VR,CR,CRS,RAF, etc) came to just shy of 900.


Numbers on the rumour network are:
270-ish Compulsory Redundant
200-ish Voluntary Redundant
300 CRS
80 to RAF/RN/Army (bulk RAF I believe)
40 to BRS (Multi-year unpaid leave)

890 total. Set against BA’s target of 1100. Is that a good result? I’m still employed, so I’d say it is. My mate who got the chop would probably say it isn’t.

5 years too late. The damage done to the brand is immeasurable. Starting with their (his) attitude to refunds on cancelled flights.

Furthermore will the said test be recognised at the port of disembarkation? Or might you have to pay again?

It appears somebody has done a bit of homework on this given that it seems the tests are only targeted at travellers going to two specific destinations..

Completely pointless, particularly in the case of HKG ... once you get there, you get tested again anyway (for free), and get thrown in gaol for 14 days for your troubles despite testing clear. Nice.

Its a start though - at the moment going to, for example, Hong Kong is a really hassle given how hard it is to get tests at the moment and how long results take to get back. 80 to avoid all of that will be a big plus for many.

Is round two rapidly approaching? Cabin crew have been told that the flying program isn’t as hoped for, less flights in the system and an ever changing scope of regulations down-route (and at home) to contend with.
the cabin crew have been asked to volunteer for 5 months unpaid leave. Don’t know how many, but suddenly over-crewed in the cabin probably means similar elsewhere.

Will all the B777s be brought back or will older ones have an accelerated retirement?

More redundancies is almost certain (unfortunately)

So sorry to hear this. I am beginning to lose hope of the airline business returning to anything recognisable, 2024 or otherwise.

Same in engineering. Email received on Friday from the Director of Engineering warning of further compulsory redundancies. TU currently in negotiations to mitigate headcount reduction.

Best of luck everyone.
