wouldn't it have been far better for UK employment if the existing crews had just passed to VS along with the slots ?
|Quoting aamd11 (Reply 1):|
Would VS have had enough funds to keep every single staff member and every single aircraft in service for the foreseeable future? Or would they have had to focus on quickly stemming the cash burn by trimming staff, routes, and aircraft?
Who's to say that in the medium term VS would have had the time and the funds to turn around an operation the size of BD? Particularly as the BD operation was in many ways larger than VS itself? Perhaps the VS option would have been worse for UK employment in the medium term... without the time and the funds to sustain the losses, the cuts could have come sooner and on a bigger scale than has been the case under IAG.

Thanks for taking the time to explain this. Now I think about it, I was aware of the overstaffing of supervisor ranks on both fleets. In light of that it makes sense to thin them a bit. Are these redundancy packages being offered to all crew or just supervisors? The article would suggest the latter, which makes sense.
As an aside, do Eurofleet CSDs work the 32S fleet as well? Or are they just on the 767?

A friend who flies for BA has told me that the CAA rules also do not help. Time required before operating being prepositioned inton LON is really expensive. It was shocking to see what was required. A two day trip can turn into 8 paid days.
