Hi all,

I have an assessment day for Monday 5th November and I am from the UK - I was wondering what type of passport do you need to have? Mine is a 1 year one.... will this be ok do you think? I am not sure what the requirement is for mixed fleet and passports.

Thank you!

Can anyone please shed some light on "World Class Mixed Fleet Experienced Cabin Crew with EASA Attestation" that BA is currently hiring for?
- is the World Class typical roster comparable to regular MF Cabin Crew roster?
- and is the World Class cabin crew salary really 25-29k a year, as it states in the job ad..?
Thank you!

So long as its a valid EU passport giving you the right to live and work in the UK, with unrestricted travel worldwide you'll be fine.

Please note however, many places you enter, such as Singapore, Kuwait, Dubai, Jeddah you'll need to have a minimum of 6 months validity remaining on the passport in order to enter.

Anyone can shed some lights as to what a typical WCC roster would look like? Alot of long-flights or short flights?

Thank you

Hi everyone,

I'm thinking of applying for BA but need to weigh up whether it would be worth it or not. I live 4 hours away so would probably have to move nearer to the airport, do many crew afford to do this and if so how much do you get paid each month?
Also I know that during training you have to sort your own accommodation out however do you actually get paid during training?

Hopefully someone can shed some light on this please!

Hannah :)

Galley lead anywhere on the plane?
And do they still carry the title World Class Crew for short haul? Cause I don't think there is a need for a purser role on short haul

747 training help

I have always loved the 747 I have a start date in March  , working on the 747 is one of the main reasons I want to work for ba , from the research I have done on this site it seems like I will either get trained on the 747 or the a380 , is there any way to make sure I get trained on the 747, not the a380 ? Has any one got any information or advice please

Ps from the research I have done I believe I will also get trained on the 777 and a320 family

It’s incredibly unlikely that you will be trained on the 747. 1 in 45 NEM courses are being trained on it so it’s pretty much set in stone that you will be 380 trained.
And yes you will also be trained on 777 and 320 family.

But don’t get your hopes up as you will almost definitely be 380. Positive is you will be trained on the 787 sooner. .
