Quoting VK “Pleased to see the badmouthing, which began in cabin crew training/BASSAland is over and Burkhill was re-instated by Willie Walsh after nefarious Union rumours forced him to quit.”

Really what is your agenda here?

Peter was/is one of the best pro-crew captains in BA and has so much respect. Crew were disgusted at the way he was treated by BA, details were posted on his blog (no longer online) for all to see and were going to be published in his book, which it seems, in order to return to his job, he had to put to one side. He was treated so badly by his own management that he left after believing he had a job lined up at another airline. Circumstances changed and this was no longer the case leaving him in limbo. Returning to BA was of course on condition that he dropped all grievances against them.
It was laughable when Willie Walsh said he would love to have him back as those were the only words he could say to avoid him being damned by the press for the way BA treated a hero in the public’s eyes. Ask the pilot community or Capt Burkhill himself.
Of course crew were talking about it on their forums, they were disgusted at his treatment, but come on, think about it, why the heck would BASSA want Peter out of a job???
One of our nicest, most popular captains.

Your anti crew, anti BASSA rants are letting you down, it seems to be an obsession. Take a step back.
You often provide good, interesting information on various topics on this forum, but this comment could not be further from the truth and you really should retract it.
