If you look at the state of the carriers in the US and compare them to BA you do wonder what BALPA is doing….?

Dont think so. Mate of mine is still waiting and he was one of the last to start at BA as is another guy who started in Feb 2020.

Your mate’s holding out for mainline, these incoming offers for those outside of the PRP are for EF.

Hey, I'm in the same position as you. Got an update a few months ago that the successful applicants in early 2020 have been "auto archived" so they're trying to figure out what stage of the process we got to.

They told me to re register my email to the careers website. Dm me if you wanna chat about it.

Does anyone have any idea what the pay is? Also, is it DEP as 2-stripe regardless of previous hours?

you join on Pay Point 1, 2 stripes regardless of experience unless its a specific DEC campaign (Euroflyer, for example, in which case its PP1 still but on command scale).

PP1 DEP (FO) is £63k plus flight pay. Pay negotiations ongoing currently.

EDIT: thats for LHR. if you accept an offer for euroflyer pp1 is about 49k plus allowances, total abut 60k. LHR total is about 80k - maybe more if you fly lots.

Hi so I was in the recruitment holdpool Jan 2020 no offer of a start.

Did anyone receive anything from them recent email wise? I haven’t….

just seen the external recruitment so does that mean we have to re-apply I guess?

cheers

Well I got my prediction about no recruitment until next year completely wrong !

Sadly those caught up in the middle of stages 1, 2 or 3 of the assessment before it all went to the wall will have to go through it again, but will be given priority for assessment dates.

Where have you got that information from?

Best guess at the moment is that most recruitment will be for euroflyer LGW, with the small remainder to LHR sh. Given the long list of unfrozen internal bids, any LH recruitment is very very unlikely (but never say never!) so plan on shorthaul with a 6yr engagement freeze and you won’t be disappointed. Worthy of note also is that anyone recruited to Gatwick will also be frozen at base for 6yrs. Transferring between bases on short haul is no longer an option as euroflyer will be on a different AOC.

Salary figures given for Gatwick are accurate, but any LHR figure is likely to be affected by the current delta deduction of circa 7.5% to basic salary for the foreseeable. This applies to all LHR pilots.

Much appreciated.

All information on the posting refers to Heathrow, so nothing to do with euroflyer then?

Can’t answer that except to say that there’s a box to tick to say you’ll also take EF if offered.

The advantage potentially of accepting Euroflyer could be an earlier start date. Seniority being everything, take the first available offer was the old advice. That’s tempered by financial circumstances at LGW and the potential of a type change if the 737 rumours are true leading to a 6 year freeze just to move to Heathrow short haul if you so wish rather than the old-fashioned ability to move bases after a year.

Interesting… so I had a conditional offer on the A320 but no start date so had finished the assessment stages but had no email or information since 2021. 🤨

What is a ZFT qualifying aircraft? Is it only for TR pilots. I've got 6000 737 time.

Thanks
