JQ fly to RedQ hub where all the 787 call home.
20,000 QF staff dumped and on the dole queue.

just posted on another thread by sfde
Just watched an interview which AJ admitted that the failed take over bid would have been a mistake and that hindsight shows this. Hindsight also shows that the executive should have purchased B777s and that freight cartels and Vietnam are a bad idea. Even their mighty Jetstar plan has seriously damaged their international product apparently.

I am having trouble finding an executive decision that in hindsight has been a good move.
Extraordinary.

Just had the site crash on me. When I got back in I noticed 1074 people viewing at this stage must be a quiet Sunday elsewhere.

PAF.

Thanks for the tip.

1. I still can't see where I said 'unions should run the company'.
2. My post was my idea of 'good faith'; not what you describe.
3. 96% evidently does not ensure good faith either! Are they all amoral? I know what I think.

I did not mention anyone specific, and I but I reckon my proposed 'good faith' would garner far more respect and success for the company than their current behaviour. Perpetually saying 'no' is not negotiating. AIPA representatives have, since 1966 until now, always reached agreement with the company without industrial action.

and..

"The idea that people like SP choose the pay and conditions you work under, and will inflict wounds on a company until they agree is incorrect. The idea that it's 'bargaining in good faith' for people like SP to propose something a little beyond what he's after and expect the airline to accept 90% of what he asked for is incorrect."

but you seem to be saying that the company can continually say 'no', without any constructive counter-offer or credible and truthful explanation, and that is ok.

Just saying the cow is sick does not make it so. If it were as sick as they would have us believe, it would be easily and transparently verifiable. I say it's dogma at it most cynical...

Is sfde watching a repeat of an old Chaser episode? Joyce actually said that? Poor lad must be getting fatigued after, what, a 12 hour shift? Perhaps he needs to toughen up. He'd never make it back from Dallas if we sent him to longhaul.

At some stage though you will need to accept that a lot of people aren't willing to pay what you demand.


Seems they have no trouble paying the board, CEO and top management tier whatever feel they deserve though right?


Leadership by example P.A.F. Not too much to ask is it?

As Joyce/Clifford's deliberate plan to drive passengers away from qantas reaches its climax....

Will this deliberate destruction of an Aussie icon go unpunished?

If ticket prices are reducing whilst employees ask for higher wages
With multiple statements like this under your belt, it is clear you do not know what you are talking about, i.e. what this is all about.

PAF~ The Great Pontificator

PAF you offer no cogent deductive argument.
What you offer is opinion~your opinion
You poke, you prod in order to incite
You seem to have a rudimentary education and a reasonable command of the english language.(as do most pre pubescent children)
Apart from satisfying your own childish need for entertainment you contribute nothing to this or any other debate.
These are serious matters that concern serious people and as such have no place for dilettante poltroons such as yourself

If people aren't aware

Twitter

That guy is giving a blow by blow account of the hearing currently underway.

And would it be possible to ban from this thread the people who cant focus on the issue and keep bleeting the same **** - PAF would be first.

Pardon???

Did someone say something? I can't hear you, PAF You are being added to everyone's ignore list faster than AJ's teeth are rotting.
