Where have all the BA staffers gone?

As I seem to be one of the few BA staff that still post regularly I was wondering which ones you miss the most, maybe through your comments the ones that are still working for BA will be encouraged to start posting again?

I always genuinely appreciate the BA Staffers who come on here, answer questions and give advice on many a subject.

Who do I miss? Names that spring to mind and in no particular order.

BA.MF.CSM
Littlegirl
BingBongBoy
alextheengineer
adrianjc32

Tough crowd at times Can I help you but...............15 years later, yes FIFTEEN!, you're still here and long may it continue ^

There used to be an old woman who worked for BA who posted here, began with a P but I can't recall her name.

Some of the pilots don't post as much as they used to, Jumbodriver and Sigwx and I did enjoy their posts especially the technical ones on Ask the Staffer

You better watch out. The Hairbrush might be headed in your direction with particular prejudice!

I agree it’s useful to have people from different parts of the company.
Some of the people you list have left or will be leaving BA shortly and as for the P person, well having hung up her wings she thankfully still flits in now and again in-between getting her legs in the air around Europe.

I've got my Flak jacket and Tin Helmet on awaiting inbound fire.

(It's really just a test to see if she is still reading the forum ;-))

I agree too and personally I find it very interesting. As for the P person she has in all seriousness brought some rather delightful stories over the years which have kept many entertained and laughing. (as well as providing useful information) I am sure she will be along shortly to reply to your 2nd paragraph!

Can I help you you're my favourite </BrucieBonus>

Always helpful and tells it like it is.

It's a shame that there aren't as many contributors as there used to be, but it's probably a) why bother with what can be a tough crowd round here and b) a bit of an indicator of the way the company is going these days and there not being the same level of passenger engagement as before.

I would ascribe that your points (a) and (b) are actually linked.

There are many reasons why people stopped posting, I am hoping through your posts that this will encourage them to return.

I'd agree, but would say that the link is probably not one of one-way cause and effect. Rather, it is more circular than that.

It's a shame that Alex and BBB have moved on to greener pastures. I wish Alex had nominated another engineer to take their place..............Engineers are always worth their weight in something.

When dear Nicci was in Exec Club she would always be on FT. Missed her!

I have to say I miss Liitlegirl’s contributions. Don’t be going anywhere CIHY, we need all the help we can get. At least BBB is still posting but obviously not from a BA perspective anymore.
