OK, it's the weekend and this is meant as a lighthearted thread.

Personally, I'd like to be a Pilot preferably on short haul routes with lots of take off's and landings

What job would you like to do (if any!) and why?

Maybe you would like to work:

At the Lounge Desks?

Special Services?

Cabin Crew?

Engineering?

Brands and Marketing?

Not fussed about which job, as long as it was on the (back in service) fast plane. From Captain to loo cleaner, I really wouldn't mind.

I was going to join BA in the early 90s as an engineer. I applied to leave the Air Force and all was looking good. Unfortunately the Gulf War kicked off and off I went to war. I missed out on all my resettlement courses so when the war finished I had to change my plans and opted to stay on in the Military. I'm not a natural pilot and engineering is very satisfying. The ultimate job is probably Station Engineer.

IT, so I could take a stab at fixing a disgrace which is ba.com (I have some experience in running high-traffic web sites).

Not sure how well paid they are. I don't know for sure but I think it's only available internally but if I ever do see "JFK operations manager" pop up on the careers page I'll apply hahaha
