Apparently, all pilots at BA, and cabin crew, retire at age 55. That will change next October when a new EU directive comes into force. What the "new" retirement age will be remains to be seen. Could be 60, could be higher.(Telegraph)

At VS, pilot retirement age is 60.

I think 55 is quite "young", or is that a good thing? Article does say that a lot of X-BA pilots do take jobs with other airlines, notably VS & SQ, so I would imagine they don't want to retire that early. I know in the US the retirement for pilots is 60. But aren't a lot of pilots wanting to change that?

Another part of this legislation is age related discrimination. This will make a mess of seniority lists, as they may be illegal!

Are you saying that seniority lists may be illegal because they discriminate against younger pilots? I think that would be an outstanding development.
