And with regard to numbers wishing to transfer to LH. There were 875 as of 11/5/09. 654 of these put their name down on or after Dec 07.

well those numbers add up. I certainly know how LH crew felt in 2003 when they lost those regional destinations so i guess that's why getting them back was important.

Its good that we have the ability to transfer between the divisions to make lifestyle decisions. Transferring to chase the work is far better than transferring the flying as it disenfranchises people who have made decisions about what sort of work they want to do when they apply for a job.

I hope we have seen the end of Qantas transferring the flying between the divisions that people based their decisions on when choosing International or Domestic in the first place.

Pegasus, I personally really enjoyed a mix of both domestic and international flying. It was great to be able to do short day trips a lot of the time allowing you to be home at night, and then throw in a few international trips. It was such a diverse working environment. I feel it is such a shame now, that we have to choose one or the other. We have to either be a domestic or international flight attendant. I would have loved to see all flight attendants merged into one division to share all the flying.

Just as we enjoy having the choice of regional flying and long haul flying.
If you started at domestic after the regional flying was acquired then I understand your loss as you didn't know any different.

What caused so much fury when the domestic took the regional flying was that this is the sort of flying that traditionally gave international FAs a break from the debilitating effects of proper east west long haul flying.

It was largely time zone benign, short in duration and most importantly for many, family friendly.

Throw in the effect of denying access to the regional destinations that literally hundreds of language speaking FAs were employed to service and you've got resentment together with a reduction in the value of customer's experience.

All so the domestics could do a little shopping

Excuse me while I barf.

trolldoll [who removed her post],

anyway. It's all academic now isn't it.

Good luck to those who get the transfer to International.

You'll have a ball........

Actually there are some of us who enjoyed that flying because it gave us the chance to see something outside of our own corner of the world, talk to people from other countries, and generally be more accepting of the world around us. But if you like to think all we did was shop, then go ahead. I just find your comments hilarious when we both know that just as many crew in LH liked those trips solely for that reason 'shopping'

Am I correct in assuming that you don't have the capacity to comment on the rest of my post?

The parts that weren't facetious.

ditch handle, your other points were valid, however I was unaware you were being 'cheeky', just ssounded like yet another 'domestics suck they took our flying' comment. Perhaps one of these would serve the purpose next time.

And I know that there are some who truly feel that way about us, however some of us did appreciate the fact that we had an opportunity to do something different from the norm and we were grateful to have it, some just assume that all S/H expected the flying but personally I didn't, it was a 'nice to have'.

I think there were problems with language speakers in S/H as well, went to HKG on one occasion without a speaker yet had some sitting at home on reserve on that particular day. What the? And although speakers in LH had reduced work remember that S/H doing regional gave others the chance to be employed as well when there otherwise might have been no opportunity.
