Reply To: BA’s A380 Takes Centre Stage at Paris Air Show

Back to Forum


Yes BA are using Qantas for line training their A380 pilots. I assume they would sit on the jump seat initially for a couple of sectors before operating – all on revenue flights.

It is unusual, however BA wanted current Airbus trainers to start initially, which at BA means A320 drivers. By giving them a head start they can start training in-house much sooner.
