I assume they are always hiring due to high turnover

Interesting , Delta also hiring right now as well. Wonder if it is high turnover or a couple new routes coming ...?

BA is always recruiting cabin crew - it's to replace the staff BA has hacked off for various reasons! It's not a sign they are growing just maintaining levels.

I think some of the staffers on here would have something to say about the earnings listed in the advert as well!

A starting salary of 12,638 (none of the other elements they include in the package is guaranteed) is genuinely shocking, and quite distresses me. Is this the price we pay for cheap air travel?

A retired police officer (well actually a lot higher than this - but can't remember title!) I know took a giant pension and went and joined MF 5/6 years ago. Has loved it - all the travel perks, with their disposable income, it seems a great way to see the world

Good to see generous salary and conditions on offer.

The salary and conditions are driven by the market, and the fares that consumers are willing to pay.

Based on the number of people willing to travel the world for a couple of years in return for a job, the salaries are based on supply and demand. And BA know it, and will exploit that.

It is.

Can I help you Oct 25, 17 6:08 am

I wouldn’t recommend anyone to join BA as cabin crew!

I've flown with him - he is excellent - but then he does not depend on a paltry sum like this to live.

Yes. QF hires waiters at their LHR lounge for 8.75/hour.

2.95 per hour... ouch

To be fair, any active crew member is guaranteed higher than this since they will get flying hours.

I don't know how sick/maternity/disciplinary pay is applied for those not flying though.

I do agree and let's be honest it is not just BA or the airline industry who do this. It would be wonderful if it was different but truth is markets dictate the fare and while yes BA will get poorer staff by paying less equally do you really think other airlines are any different and offer so much more as if they do why don't people go for those jobs instead.

This is the world we live in and next you buy an item of clothing I bet you the person who made it was paid substantially less and live in worse conditions than the cabin crew. I am not saying I agree with it, simply to think BA would exist if it suddenly offered more pay I am afraid is not the world these days.
