Angela is “Director of People” and Klaus is COO. Big shakeup if true.

I hear that Boris is looking for some new staff today, maybe they should give Cummings a call.

The rumour is that BA will be renamed Boris Airlines and that a BB will be constructed. All flights between Scotland and North Ireland will be forbidden : all travel will be by road using the BB (Boris Bridge).

Neither will be missed if true.

Angela is the most mediocre HR manager I've had to see in a long time. Got in the job for 3 years, filled her departments with passive-aggressive know-it-alls and the results are there for anyone to see: BA's still on the same HR system she promised to change 3 years ago, the Intranet is a half-baked mess (or so I'm told), nothing has been done to improve morale and the only event they wanted to do (the friends and family event) was axed. And that's coming from a department so utterly rubbish, in BA, that sent me 4 contracts with misspelt name, role or date every time I needed to change one.

Klaus has since long been just an empty suit, he stopped being interested in running Ops a long time ago. James Mahoney, whislt not perfect, scares the beejesus out of those who are notorious slackers, "right-talkers" and people who just coast along. And has a strong safety focus. The only thing I'd be looking out to see is how things pan out with Rags. It's a bit like Dom Cummings and Sajid: there's space only for one, methinks.

Jason Mahoney is currently director of engineering. Previously BA he left to run TUIís engineering division before returning.

He was painted as the saviour of BA engineering when he returned, and announced a massive restructure (the second in approx 3 years). Wether it was a success or not I donít know as I left under a VR scheme during that period, but I understand that his reputation quickly faded. Apparently he was hardly seen/heard for months during the negotiations with the unions over pay last year which eventually led to the pilots strikes, he was taking the lead on the BA side.

Edit: corrected typo
