Do NJS ask you to pay for your endorsement?

ONLY IF:

You have obviously never worked for NJS. They are most professional organisation I have worked for. Including the big Q. Without all the bulshit that goes with the Q.

so does anyone know when the announcement date is likely to actually be, assuming it doesn't get put off again?

Training for NJS starts June

I have heard through a NJS bigwig that we have the contract, training begins June 30 for a July 1 start date. We will head out to the tarmac in the wee hours of July 1, and there it will stand, the 717, a quick read of the manual before an early departure. Nice one QANTAS!!!!! nobs

Gee it's amazing how many Jetstar managers are willing to let information that must be commercially confidential slip before QF makes the announcement.

Capt Claret it's just a ploy to see which employees or friends you can trust with sensitive information.

Jetstar Mangement Dude: Hey Grove, Jetstar got the contract it should be public by tomorrow.

Grove: [blurts out sensitive information on international, public forum]

JMD: [strikes Grove off list of people he can trust]

Clearly some one is in the Know. Check out this web site and scroll down to the Qantas link section.

Rubbish Bloggs. IF NJS get the 717, their chooks will be dual-endorsed with the 146, so no new jobs.

Whilst I don't believe the add for cabin crew indicates that any one knows as opposed to is guessing I do think more CC will be needed by NJS as the mooted cabin config will require 4 CC not the current 2 or 3.

My wife has banned me from talking about the "C" word in her presence.

Hey Grove,

It's past close of business Monday and;

" was told by a Jetstar manager this morning that it has gone to Jetstar and we should know tomorrow[friday] or Monday at the latest....Who knows!!"


Either your source is terribly unreliable or you are completely filled to the brim with SH1T!!

Timing is everything!

The NJS Little newsletter didn’t get published on Friday. I was expecting to see it today - but still nothing.

My bet is the 717 decisions has been made. But the announcement is being held for some reason.

I wish they’d hurry up….

Scram,

That's a bit below the belt considering your background! Be nice about your new employer!
