OMG, Oasis would be so much better for boarding music than the current stuff.

If they know how to bid, then yes. "There and back" routes are generally not very popular with MF crew, unless you need to be home every night.

On query I had relating to BA is the procedure for crew boarding their plane.
At LHR, you often see the crew going to their plane together presumably from the staff area. What happens at outstations? How early can the crew board? Are there rules etc? Can crew board separately and does someone check their ID? Is the senior crew member responsible? What about when crew want to do duty free shopping etc?
MF crew generally stay together as as group. Pick up times from crew hotels generally don't allow time to detour to duty free. Crew IDs are checked by ground crew at the gate.
