Why do QF /Jetstar etc. and other Asian carriers, employs S/Os as "cruise only pilots"?
Surely it is safer to have three fully trained co-pilots on the flight deck sharing the landings, and getting experience.
BA for example only operate with fully type rated co-pilots, necessary of course as many shorter 777/787/744/A380 LH routes operate with a two crew flight deck.
