Hi CaptainkIRK!

Are you a local or Briton expat living in Singapore? Are you holding ATPL applying as a direct entry pilot?

BA only takes in British citizens as deck crew. I strongly do not think they will take in any other nationality. If you are one (British citizen), you'll probably have a good chance provided you have the required minium flying hours!

By the way, if you are equipped with ICAO recognised pilot licence (Preferably with J.A.R. and CAA licences), that would be great!

As for my case, despite having countless of (multi-engines with turbo-props) flying hours, I did not turn for SIA cadet pilot round 2 interview. What a waste!

If you have been called up for BA pilot interview, go ahead! :) Don't miss this valuable opportunity!

Cheers mate..I'm not British by the way.

But I have been flying for a gulf state airline for years and I was actually asked to go for the BA post. Coincidentally they are recruiting irregardless of your nationality. One thing to note it's a Direct Entry Scheme Only basically they don't do cadet pilots.
