Re: BA could make up to 12,000 employees redundant

I saw that article. Can't believe BA pay some CC £70k and others £28k ... The legacy fleet should have been dealt with years ago . Zero sympathy. It’s called seniority .... Those people on the top bucks deserve every penny. They’ve helped put the company where it is today, and for the past 30 years...

Re: BA could make up to 12,000 employees redundant

BA/AIG have to buy around 200 new aircraft over the next ten years, just to keep up with everyone else. That costs a lot of money. The management are simply doing what any of us would do if we were in charge. Cut costs and improve productivity. Staff moral at the moment is quite low down the list o...

Re: Air Europa might stay independent.

Don't forget that Unite the Union (representing 25,000 BA staff) are standing as a 3rd party to block this merger - and have taken their case to the European Competition Comission. Unite, Britain and Ireland's biggest union, has informed the EU commissioner for Competition, Margrethe Vestager, that ...

Re: BA could make up to 12,000 employees redundant

I can see your points and I agree it's appalling how BA/IAG management behave. I just think pilots need to start looking a bit beyond their own turf and see what is going on and has been going on around them. The profit share point is making that case very neatly. A lot of other groups did not shar...

Re: BA could make up to 12,000 employees redundant

Lordy. Strike from what? I haven't had my butt on a crew seat for almost 3 months! That's what I can't get my head around. Unlike the airplanes, the plans are all up in the air. I get a sense that Unites' back is up against a wall here, with little other option. But I could be wrong. Unite are issu...

Re: BA could make up to 12,000 employees redundant

Unite have now issued a vote of no confidence for Alex Cruz, and also an email to check everyone's details are correct in preparation for a potential ballot for industrial action. This is the exact same email they issued prior to the strike ballot of 2019 and 2017. Something's on the horizon, and t...

Re: BA could make up to 12,000 employees redundant

I've recently felt that IB should use this opportunity to expand into Latin America, which can in turn be a gateway into establishing operations for the United States and North America. Flights between Europe and the Caribbean would prove popular, with Miami and LAX becoming the NA hubs for the air...

Re: BA could make up to 12,000 employees redundant

What seems strange to me is that they kept all of these people employed whilst all of their flights were cancelled, but now that flights are coming back they start firing people. Surely there would be a better way - a 6 month 50% reduction in working hours or something like that. That's because of ...

Re: British Airways 787-10

Just out of curiosity, why did BA opt to have an F cabin on the B787-10 and the B787-9 and not on the A35K? A35K was for mid-j 747s/routes that have seen a slight dip in premium demand so it made more sense to use the space for more business seats than install a first. The 787-10 on the other hand ...

Re: BA could make up to 12,000 employees redundant

The aim is basically to get Worldwide and Euro FAs to retire if they have the years, and to replace them with Mixed Fleet on more routes. As for the A380, of which BA has 12...do they factor into the future of BA? I’ll never understand this obsession with Worldwide and Eurofleet crew that the publi...

Re: BA could make up to 12,000 employees redundant

They have now agreed to a voluntary redundancy offer for select departments (including pilots & Worldwide & Eurofleet crew). That proposal has been sent to the union - but it explicitly states that it does not include Mixed Fleet.
