BA pilots on Twitter
 
BA are encouraging a small group of BA pilots to use twitter to show their work lives, pictures and answer questions.

It's quite an interesting perspective, even for me!

I know many on here use twitter, so check these out if you haven't already.

Cool - interesting stuff and good publicity.

Are there other interesting twitter BA employees to follow? Cabin crew, engineers, Watersiders?

Damn. I was hoping to be reminded about the A321 being the "largest aircraft in BA's fleet" as I remember seeing last year. Or a single engine being able to power a town the size of Colchester...something like that :)

I found the write-ups interesting but the aircraft info snippets usually had errors.

And from the QR pilot team - https://www.instagram.com/althani350/

He's a lovely lovely chap, and always goes out of his way to meet followers if they're onboard.

Lots of A380 pilots specifically with their pet names for all the XLA etc fleet.

Hugely insightful and not just the BA ones - I follow quite a few of them, but have yet to have anyone on my flights.

He is definitely worth following, also his blog is very interesting (for aircraft geeks) although there are only 2 posts on it right now: https://captaindavea380.wordpress.co...rt-2-stopping/

The next post will be on the A380 fuel system.

Remember, on twitter there are NO journalistic standards for accuracy. Write whatever you want -- no one checks. And believe at your own risk.
