BA Interview
« on: July 16, 2012, 10:39:09 AM »
Hi,

I'm looking for a career change and have applied for a role at British Airways!
It's a Revenue Management Analyst role. (I.e. bit like AWS,  but in real life  :) )
The job is basically to get the most revenue/profit out of aicrafts/routes.

I've got a phone interview this week.
any1 got some industry/insider knowledge on the likely questions they may ask at the interview?
I currently don't work in the airline industry so some insider knowledge could be helpful

I spend many hours each week on AWS, may as well try and do it in real life and get paid for it :)

thanks in advance for any responses.

For us down here to say good luck is to jinx things. The way to farewell a person is by saying merde LOL, for example when on a final exam.

In an international forum itīs not recommendable to use phrases that are somewhat unique to your country without explaining them right away.I was wondering myself why you used such an inappropiate word.

Oh I'm sorry. I should have made a comment on that in my initial post.

EDIT reason: sorry exchlbg for my overheated response

I only know the airline pilot gouge sites, not sure about your area.

a quick google of "British Airways Gouge" brought this up
maybe type in your title of your job too?
