John Holland Aviation announcement

Rumour circulating that JHAS is to announce something significant to its workers tomorrow (Tuesday). Anyone able to shed some light on what it is?

Loss of the Tiger work? Going to BAe.

Loss of the Jetstar work? Going to QF MEL hangar as part of QF shuffle

Loss of the Virgin work? Frustrated with continual damage, errors and late deliveries.

Maybe all three.

Haven't been working for/with JHAS since about 2007.

Not too hard to guess though.

Maybe they are going to fall over before the Qantas news comes out.

Closing down altogether as 'new' aircraft don't need maintenance for 20 years*.

*According to those in the know in the upper echelons at QF.

Announcement now scheduled for later this week apparently. Looks like situation in dire straits at JHAS and parent company not too happy. Retrenchments, sale, closure, watch this space.

So, lets just say JHAS close - Would QF management be smart enough to buy all the hangars/facilities?

What an opportunity!!!

Mind you, I have no faith in QF management what so ever.

They were of course offered the chance to buy the lot post Ansett for approx
1 mill - a real bargain, but none of them had the foresight / brains...........

So Qantas is about to close one HM facility only to purchase another one next door?

The facility is probably way to big anyway for Virgin, although im sure theyll grab the old 767/330 sized hanger at the end if it could be split? Maybe our friends across the ditch might chip in as well?

Bit early to make judgement on JHAS though....

........the point I was making is that QF could combine both its existing facility and the JH facility to make a "Super facility" capable of servicing the entire fleet - wide body, narrow body etc etc.
Huge infrastructure, with all docking, stores, workshops,amenities etc etc all in one place.....an amazing chance to combine all and even attract customer work at a great price.


Pity it will never happen...................

Q should.

But this is not about flying or fixing planes. It's about bashing unions. It's about winding up legacy operations, culling staff, investing in shelf companies and casualising a workforce.

And still calling Australia home. Feel the spirit?

Am I the only one who gets annoyed when someone starts talking about Qantas in an unrelated thread......please people, if you must always gravitate to Qantas stick to the threads on Qantas.
