Our pilot community has shown that we care about each other, working together to help in any way we can. The CRS pool was created to support as many pilots as possible during the transition to the new fleet plan and the mentoring system was set up for those facing redundancy to keep them informed of the help and options available.
Not long after I joined BA I remember operating a flight to North America. Where exactly I was going to I don’t recall but I do remember the Captain I was with. Now this was in those pre internet 90’s when a thud through your letter box meant the monthly bid pack had arrived, Balpa were battling to keep the cheese board loaded and emoji was one of ourNarita ICC’s!
