You had to keep listening GB:

REBECCA BAILLIE: But there are Qantaslink pilots leaving, aren't there?

CAPT. CHRIS MANNING: A few will leave, but most of them stay within Australia.

REBECCA BAILLIE: Qantas chief pilot Chris Manning admitted more than 20 per cent of Qantaslink pilots have left the carrier this financial year alone. He says the majority have gone to jobs with Qantas mainline or Jetstar.

Personally I have no idea whether most are going to QF or Jetstar, but from what I hear the majority aren't, rather going to VB as you said GB. Why would he say that when it clearly isn't true?

Oh and anyone who missed it, here is a link to the video: http://www.abc.net.au/7.30/content/2007/s2207270.htm#
