    Once you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth

    A story I'm sure, but probably not the whole story.

    It's the right result in this case but hopefully there are many out there in similar cases who can take on board to not randomly use crimps without the help of Part-M organisation.
    The award was scaled down 50%, as reported in the media, because he contributed to his dismissal. With this eventual outcome, does he regain everything he should be entitled to after 27yrs service?

    Kudos to Prospect and ALAE for standing by John.
    I love this job

    I think that the problem he faced had nothing to do with the right or wrong crimp, it had all to do with the safety concerns he raised at BA Glasgow as stated in the newspaper article and anyone reading any of the information out there on this case and is remotely concerned about the fragrant abuse of CRS procedures going on in the real world needs to understand that what John Higgins did was incredibly brave and should be seen as something we should all be proud of and not try and find any justification for British Airways cruel and deliberate actions.

    was incredibly brave

    We don't need people enduring danger or risk in the industry.

    I hope this story gains legs and spreads the news in maintenance hangars across the Globe.

    It always amazes me that whilst everyone understands that things could have gone better, as soon as I point this out, I get shot down in flames. Fair enough.

    If you think this is a one-off dream on. Aviation companies are all trying to eliminate these HF related incidents and continually learning from them. It does not always mean a trip to the Union rep and a legal gravy train. For some it will mean stacking shelves in Tescos, no matter how heavy handed you think the employer is.

    Would it not be cheaper to save the Union dues and carry out maintenance in a different way?
