I couldn't believe when he was asked to stay longer

I have a flight to catch so I have to go by xx:xx
He works for an airline with a lot of flights every day to Canberra, shows how much respect he has for the process.

But he's getting a bit shitty now with some non gimme questions that Bob Brown is giving

His tactic (as would anyones be, I guess) is to focus on minutiae as quickly as possible and go into as much detail as possible to chew up time on items he is confident with.

He will be watching a clock thinking, 25 more minutes, 20 minutes, 15.....almost there..almost there.

Needs professional questioning.

Very significant he stated technical representation is 'very very rarely' at board level.

A380 heavy maintenance

When AJ says that "we do our heavy maintenance here", what about the A380s? I thought they go to Lufthansa Technik for their maintenance.

FF point of View

The problem for Qantas is that is is currently run by a CEO and board that are driven more by an ideological obsession with management prerogative than by any understanding of the emerging workplace of the 21st Century. This last act of lunacy is just the last in a long line since it's privatisation. I personally don't give a rat's arse if it disappears tomorrow so long as the staff can get jobs with another airline that will treat them as valuable assets of the company, not liabilities to be got rid of.

That would be Doug Cameron, who just said AJ is squirming like Former President Nixon out of answering questions.
To which AJ said to Senator Cameron, "this is like a McCarthy trial" (read as McCarthyism).

Sen Cameron - 'I wonder if your $2 million pay rise was a bigger distraction for the pilots'.

Answer below from wikipedia

Quote:
Douglas Niven Cameron (born 27 January 1951) is an Australian politician and trade unionist. He has been a Labor member of the Australian Senate since July 2008, representing the state of New South Wales.
Cameron was born in Bellshill, Scotland. He was first elected to the Senate at the 2007 federal election. He won Labor preselection by mounting a successful challenge to then incumbent Senator George Campbell. Cameron previously served as the national secretary of the Australian Manufacturing Workers Union.
