Reply To: BA asks office staff to volunteer as cabin crew

Back to Forum


What is the “industry average” for airlines such as BA? And, what would it be for European airlines such as LH, KL-AF, etc., Do they get paid the same as BA cabin crew, give or take currency fluctuations?
I don’t think we should underestimate the appeal of the Gulf carriers, such as EK, to UK-based crew; the wages might be lower but Dubai IS tax-free and the girls can drink and sunbathe all they want.Certainly, my insider at BA tells me that EK, with its plans to expand, is becoming an increasingly viable option for younger, unattched crew who just want a hedonistic life in the sun and to nab themselves a rich investment-banker boyfriend/husband/lover.
