I love that corporate speak 'preferred'. How many of the CZFOs met Voz minimums for FO upgrade? How many made the move 'vertically'? Anthill, you seem intent on defending to the death the company that got you back to Oz, congrats and good luck. Remember to keep playing the man instead of the game. The snide remarks about comprehension and my brain (how did you know) were fantastic.

Snakecharma, with respect, I can only go on what I read in official documents. Opinions of what may or may have not been the case simply aren't valid as a source of information and I cannot accept them in forming conclusions. It's a bit like believing a rumour whilst ignoring a fact. Some punters here have essentially stated that the CzFOs employed in the early days had taken a dead-end job. I differ in my opinion of this based the FAQs sheet as a policy document. To form a conclusion based on rumours or other's personal opinions when there is other, more robust, data would be irrational.


If the original executive GM had had his way none of the virgin blue guys
would have been able to come over and pollute the "culture" of V.
I never heard him say this or anything like it. I do know that he was dismayed that many of those domestic people who applied and were given interviews simply didn't turn up. I did hear him say that if they lacked the courtesy to not show for an interview, then he wasn't interested in them at any stage down the track. I think that this is fair enough. I also think that anyone who did this should be subject to some form of company discipline; clearly they lack the maturity to be a captain. Or even an FO.

Snakecharma's recollection is correct. There was originally no intention to allow Crz FOs any promotion path into the domestic fleet. That changed a few years ago and they now have the chance to come over. They are now our colleagues and we should treat them like everyone else, with respect.

Snakecharma is correct.

Anthill is making the assumption that the document was correct. I would suggest that this so-called document is either in error, or was published after the policy changed.

If VB guys wanted to go to V they had to resign lose all their sick leave and Long Service Leave and start again.

Likewise the Cabin Crew.

That's why many didn't go.

It was made in no uncertain terms that it was two separate operations and no movement was available between the two. It is also quite possible that the Voz Management were telling their guys one thing and the VB management telling theirs guys another and noone really knew what was going on. Certainly won't be the first time that's happened in a airline

Sounds similar to another VA owned (albeit partly) airline. It'll be fun to see the reactive carry on from the pilot groups and unions if/ when Tiger expands and the horse has well and truly bolted!

I have no evidence one way or the other, but i find it difficult to believe that Senior VB Captains who were 8-9 years in the company would have sacrificed their long service when they came over. History shows that they did not have to, or it was reinstated, as many of them have been on LSL over the last two years. These were guys who came in the first batch of VB Captains in 08/09 and were 00 and 01 joiners at VB.

Time for an update if anyone cares to elaborate?
You'll see all below and get the idea.
Worth noting if any minimum length of service agreement, bonding or upfront deposits/bank guarantee is applicable also as that changes the whole equation in some circumstances.

Cobham 717 Captain is $158,500 at present, will increase again in a month or so. I dont know what an F/O is today however its [probably fair to say all the Cobham wages would be slightly more than listed with an increase at the end of June.

Chocks...

Are you sure your Tiger pay rates are up to date? I know tiger pilots who claim they're on more than JQ; better base pay and better 'overtime' cut-in point.

Anyone?

TIGER & JETSTAR both require you to be type rated on A320 before you start. It would be smart to budget 2 months without pay for endorsement & a start date.

JETSTAR type rating approximately $38,000. TIGER don't mind where you source your type rating (significant saving possible).

JETSTAR A330/B787 add approximately 10 percent to A320 wages.

CAUTION - All new starters with JETSTAR are "flex-time". Flex-time is a 75% salary & overtime threshold drops from 75 hrs to 62 hrs. Full time is offered once a percentage cap is reached (10%). Time to full time is anyones guess with movement slowing this year.

JETSTAR EBA is expired and pilots have been told the QF group pay freeze applies until the group returns to profit.

Could someone confirm or disprove the rumour that JETSTAR NZ pilots now make more than JETSTAR AU?

Could someone supply similar accurate numbers (Base, EFA, Bonus & Estimated Earnings) for Virgin EMB, 737, A330 and QANTAS 737?
