Why is anyone suprised ?.

Multi Millionaires generally do not have a whole pay roll sitting in the bank, one fortnight pay would be what 400K, no one has that money sitting in the bank.

If there is a cash flow problem, historically speaking pays are late due to a huge array of lame excuses, did the pay lady have another baby per chance ?(better the pays go in late than allowing the Westpac to reposses a Dash8).

Considering this whole topic (the last 427 posts and 80,000 odd views) suggests the company is drastically short of flight crew, aircraft utilisation could be low right, what if so low the ingoings are less that the outgoings ?, many made men have been un-made by this simple math.

Women and children first.

Guys

Just because some rich guy "owns" a "pty ltd" company don;t expect him to tip in some of his own cash when it's going under ...... that's NOT the way the rich stay that way .......

Dog, You also forget the amount of work Skippers bleeds to X-hires, another great way to keep money in someone else's bank!

Word has it ( Hi Veetail ) eight more Captains had interviews at another blue tail operator, five of whom on the death pencil, did not realise they had that many Metro Captains .

I just happen to be talking to a mate the other day who works for this mob (not a Pilot) and he reckons that Braz FOís are on a higher pay scale than Dash FOís and Metro FOís are still well and truly on the centerlink pay scale! What the hell is with that? And no one is really sure what the captains are on, line, supervisory, check it doesnít seem to make any difference these days. Is this business being running by professionals or just a bunch of try hard yes men and women!!!!!!

Itís time that SQ woke up and smelt the burnt jet fuel, or soon to be lack off, because this next mass exodus may be the last that this little privately owned company can handle!
NO PILOTS = NO COMPANY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey, that's not cheap you know...$48 last time I did it. Things are looking up at Skippers.

Do they pay for you to get back or is there no need?
