And none of you ever saw this moment coming?....I guess we all live in a sheltered world at some stage in our life....no offense, but if I was a QF guy, I would be using it as a job search allowance..get out while you can....I worked for another icon of Australian aviation before it went to the shitter in 2001...Dicko et al have screwed it for you blokes... The blind arrogance shown by the QF management team over the last 11 years beggars belief....nothing against you QF blokes... But get real... Every empire will crumble one day.or if it doesn't crumble... It will NEVER be the same..

Valley of Hinnom...

Name from the past! Doesn't seem to have done any better with APNG. He has just been shown the door.
Was he 'pushed' or did he walk?

Wonder if a Dash 8 accident report is about to be released by Sid?
I thought Sid had left the AIC?

"Assuming Joyce won't go easily, I wonder if some within in high places are already grooming someone right now.

Please don't let it be Hrdlicka. "

Please no.

The only one who should be considered is Strambi - at least he knows what he is talking about and attends more employee related events/presentations than the CEO does. We could do a lot worse than have him running the place.......

Anyone notice that in todays press Boston Consulting have been appointed to review Jetstar strategy.

Surprise surprise, consultants continue to reign. Wonder what the management actual do to earn their money???

Perhaps Boston Bruce will make a comeback? He could introduce free make-up on whatever airline survives. I thought that with the departure of BB that would be the end of Boston. Hindlicker has her own favourite Consultants so the news was certainly surprising.
It really is entertaining watching vultures circling the dead carcas, all wanting to pick the meat off the bones before nothing is left.

It is a crying shame what has happenned to the Roo. Any Government with a set of plums would have never let this rape and pillage occur.

Any company like Qf or JQ that needs to hire consultants like that.......was never much of a company.

WOFTAM



QF94 seems to have summed it up quite well.

If you ask me......could not organize a root in a brothel with a fist full of fifties!
Sad but true..........

Woolies vouchers Jaba. You can burn them all in an instant. They're not as good value as flights but you can use them whenever you like and they're better value than the TVs, iPads, iPhones, etc on there.

As part of the quick exit, he was kept on as a "consultant"

So I assume he's never left the Qantas gravy train, I mean payroll.

Considering the 'anonymous' nature of this forum, your question regarding my identity is inappropriate. Having said that, make no doubt, the highest of office in our country are continually monitoring this site and many others like it. Particularly at this difficult time in our IR history.
Kind Regards,

Anyone considered that this lovers tiff between Joyce and Dixon could all be just an act?

Consider that speculation of Dixon and co were always rumoured to be on the prowl for a slice of Qantas. And his meetings with Joyce on a weekly bases were beginning to be put under the spotlight, then they ceased.

Now, the pair have a public bust up. Seems all very orchestrated to me.

My guess is that this was part of the plan so it looks like Joyce is giving a fight to protect Qantas from these evil pariahs, meanwhile executing Dixons plan that was put in place back in 2008. My guess is Dixon will miraculously get what he wants, Joyce will cry, and then get a golden parachute for millions of $$$$$$$$$. The carve up will happen and Joyce will have a win again due to his stock options.

Anything is possible with these clowns!!!
