Angry Another Jetstar Base to close ?

I have heard several rumours , some from quite reliable types , that Jetstar is about to close yet another base - not sure if its Perth or Brisbane.
Does anyone know which base is to go and when or why ?

If they were that reliable, why don't they know which base (if any) it is?

Most likely Darwin, as most of the flights can be handled by Singapore based crews!

That was apparently the reason behind the proposed closure ,cheaper overseas pilots crewing the flights, most likely out of Perth to Sing and Indon - there will not be much left for the Aussies soon. Now there's a familiar theme.

I feel really sorry for anone who had a base close on them and moved to Perth just to have it happen all over again . Better to buy a Winnebago than a house if you work for JQ.

Where are all the new pilots being sent at the moment? How hard is it to get a SYD base? Not applying, just interested. Thanks all.

Id say Perth as JQ110/109 went over to 3K111/112

And JQ114/115 is operated by 9V aircraft

So the only flight out of Perth operated by Aussie crew that base here is JQ116/117 to DPS
