It's been nearly 2 months since I last posted on this topic, and it appears nothing has really moved on. That's rather depressing really. Back then I was saying that BA didn't seem to have any kind...

I suspect this may get moved into the other thread discussing this ("COVID-19 - TP reduction requirement for re-qualification [currently to June year end]") but I fully agree with your view.
