  • Not know yet - judges still judging. Expect answer by month's end.
  • Old leased 146s will be released and offered for work. Hallo Chris, would you like a regional service? If we start tomorrow will that be soon enough?
  • a) 20 plus an RJ. b) 8 now, another 6 in 18 months.

We were told 19 January.

Apparently 717 steps are being moved from MEL to PER next week... I dunno what, if anything, that means.

I believe those who have been interviewed by NJS recently have been told the 717's are heading to NJS.

As this is a rumour net work, I heard yesterday from one of the flight attendants (NJS) that she had been told congratulations from a Qantas mainline Flight Attendant on NJS getting the gig. Apparently the Qantas F/A read it somewhere as well.

Are you for real. LMFAO

No one has any idea who has got it. No one!

THough obviously it is heavily in Jetstars favour

I suppose the best thing would be to decide that they won't get a backlash...
BAe, what are you on, and can I have some?

A mate who knows a mate in Qantas close to the 3rd floor told me that the flying sperm is about to inseminate the porn star...

Understand NJ have been recruiting over the last few months for 146 positions. Is this to allow the 146 crews to do the 717 training?

..............JetStar are recruiting BIG TIME!.................they are so desperate, they are now re-assessing applicants that were previously knocked back and giving them slots ! If NJS pilots opt to stay on the 146 instead of coffing up for a 717 conversion the sh!t will hit the fan for NJS....................they will of course say "no 717 rating - no job"..................to which the pilots will say "stiff!" and go out and apply to JetStar direct!

NJS would be wise to tread very carefully on their re-tender for this contract........you're not dealing with mining companies here boys !!!!!!
