Your maths is slightly out , although it's classed as a 9 day trip it currently stands at 177h and 55 mins which works out at £498.16 for the trip part of which is taxed. If you are going to go out and have "fun", see the sights etc,,,,, then you will earn nothing. A great trip but not a good earner, if you want to make money then stick to Kuwait & Abuja :-)

Interesting. How are Kuwait and Abuja rostered that they are better earners? Where I am now they can be treated like a US east coast back to back but at MF are you not off the clock for the day in between? We were in my time... with LAS and DEN .. no money for the one day off in between.

Apologies, I didn't have the exact number of hours for the trip but I was just trying to give a general overview of how the flight pay system works. As for the flight pay increase, as far as I believe most of us on mixed fleet are concerned this is a reasonable-ish deal. I for one personally recognise that we are never going to get everything we ask for but that this would be a fair compromise for now. I'd love interested to hear other peoples thoughts on this though.

Kuwait, Abuja, Lagos, Nairobi etc are good because you spend very little money downroute. From approx £120 allowances you can easily get away with spending just £20 of that

The near £500 more than covers the expenditure on the trip (or it did when I did them). I spent between £200-£300 per trip on mine and did loads of the tourist stuff and ate well.

In reality any route can earn you money. It all boils down to what you do and eat. After a few times in a destination you might just decide to get some rest and not leave the hotel even if it is in Miami or Vegas.
And nope we are on the clock from sign on to 30mins after the flights scheduled arrival time. We don't have a 'day off' in our US trips. LAS, ORD,MIA are all nightstops, as with majority of our trips. GIG, HND,ICN,SIN are basically the only places we get a clear day.

Apologies if this has been answered time and time again but does any MF crew commute from the north?

Thanks
Guys

Thanks

You will work in both Business and Economy when you first start, and do your First training after approximately one year.

Some new entrants will also be trained to work on the A380 from next year!

#27  Requirements, HELP  Posted 29/10/2014 at 19:13
Hi guys,

I was hoping to get any advice from you which has passed the application process.
I saw that BA requires : To have grade C or above in Maths and English GCSE (or equivalent) or higher level qualification.

I have higher degree (Bachelor) however I studied in Poland. I live in London for 2,5 year so I speak fluently. But I wonder if I should get any additional tests in Maths and English to have a certificate just to proof above qualifications or I will be tested during AD ???????

THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!

They do not test you on AD's. They do not ask to see proof of qualifications. Taking them would be unnecessary. As far as I am aware those people who suggested they spoke additional languages were not tested either - especially not in the group and with the crew I worked with last year.
