Re: American Pilots at European Airlines

Thanks everyone for your replies. A bit discouraging but then again I can always pick the LHR routes down the road I suppose from an airline in the US.

American Pilots at European Airlines

Hi all, I've been reading this forum for as long as I can remember, so it's a big moment for me finally posting! I'm about 500 hours into my 1500 requirement for my ATP, working as a CFI in the US. As long as I can remember, I've always admired British Airways as a company and with English heritage,...
