Just a tad of info that I have found after some web surfing:

Cabin Crew Base - Sydney

Callsign is to be: Kanga

ICAO / IATA (dont know which one) - VAU

Sir Richard Branson is also going to be announcing routes etc on the 27th March....

I dont think that this has been reported before.

Kanga ROOTED . The feeling you will have after spending all your life flying east-west jet-lagged to all buggery.

Or is that ROOTED, a simple summary of the proposed T&C's ?

From http://www.glcom.com/hassan/kanga_history.html.

THE KANGA is a rectangle of pure cotton cloth with a border all around it, printed in bold designs and bright colours. It is as long as the span of your outstretched arms and wide enough to cover you from neck to knee...

"THE KANGA is a rectangle of pure cotton cloth with a border all around it…." representing Australia.

"printed in bold designs and bright colours…."representing the bold designs, bright ideas, and offer of things shiny coming from those setting up VAust.

"It is as long as the span of your outstretched arms…" representing the begging that will go hand-in-hand with the job.

"and wide enough to cover you from neck to knee…" to cover you once they have removed the shirt from your back!

Hey Flava Saver,

Having googled the “reverse Kanga” I began to wonder what might happen on a “Kanga reserve day" at VAustralia.

Is that where they reserve something special for you, phone you at the last minute, and if you don’t do it, you get a “reverse Kanga”?

A flightless bird it isn't!!

I guess Lion was probably taken. Suitable alternatives:


How about............. "Jackal"??

As with the MIL, callsign selection should be determined by those who have actually to use it on the air instead of fat, shiny-bummed office-bound non-flying blunts.

That way we'd never hear the silly likes of Speedbird, Bluebird, Blueberry, Tinkerbell, Bambi, Chuanhang, Festival City, Fly Hello, New Dawn, Suckling (??????) etc...

I am shocked, shocked I say, and appalled, at the racist slant your post took in inferring (inferring I say, in no way PROVING) that VB-A are targetting South Affricans solely for recruitment.

Interesting rumour going around that certain sections of VB-A management (especially financial, operations less - but indescernibly so, sadly :() were seen salivating (in open company, how gross!) at the news that Indonesia"s AdamAir might have to close their doors, thereby throwing onto the market many qualified pilots.
So "yarrpies" etc beware - in life maybe "no guarentees."

Should show that their lowest dollar approach is, in no way, racially orientated. Good news I'd say! :O

Now trying to remember if the article stated "qualified professional pilots" or just "qualified pilots."

Regardless still highly offended MR G-ZUZZ - however love :ok: the deft touch, please keep it going!

PS: if the above wasn't "rumour" maybe it is now. :E
