if above article is correct & they've picked up a few A333s on very cheap leases, they could use both in peak season heavily & in low season, not so much, when other aircraft are being serviced.

I have never worked for FJ however several buddies have worked there, and there is one common thread that all have mentioned without exception.Expats apparently are not welcomed by the local pilots and if you are in the left seat you can expect a hostile guy on the right seat, making your job quite uncomfortable.Its much worse in the right seat with a local PIC, usually very very hostile.

Surprising to hear. Most Fijians I have met have been humble, polite and very welcoming. I did hear once the local Fijian Captains got paid less than the expat FOs and that's not right in anyone's book.

Second to last sentence...7 out of 22 locals...I wonder how many of those were SOs straight out of training?

Cheap leases donít usually exist in the South Pacific.
In the past expat unable to upgrade.
