As a qualified Chartered Accountant, an ex senior manager in one of the 'big 4' firms, I can tell you with absolute certainty that an audit is not worth the paper its written on. Infact, it was the first statement of the lecturer at uni in audit 101, many years ago.

It does not guarantee that the accounts are correct, it merely states that in their belief, with the limited information they have seen, they dont believe that there are any material errors in the accounts. 'material' varies from client to client, and is based on a risk assessment including the industry, job separation etc etc. It is a very loose concept.

There could quite easily be many falsifications within the QF/JQ framework.

The overall position of the company may be the same, if, as we suspect, cost allocation etc is questionable. It is just the segments (ie Q DOM, JQ, FF etc) that will change.

NO CASA approval. Too many seats and not enough doors

No just did a showcase tour of the ports for family days. I believe pilots are being trained in Mel and first revenue in a Cpl of weeks. That's the last I heard a few days ago. Of course this may have changed..

More [email protected] on PPRuNe? According to JQ's current press releases, the 787 will operate MEL to Cairns and Cooly for a few weeks and then start Melbourne /Bali in mid December. Domestic flights will start later this month.

Where are the FOs for 787 coming from ?

How long would one have to be in company to successfully bid for 787 or for that matter 330 fo (guess that is a hypothetical now

Jacana.

Seeing you might be in the know.

Is the Melbourne - Jakarta JQ leg a new leisure route to go up against an Air Asia X who obtained an AOC with the associated lower cost base in Indonesia.

Or is it because JQ just receives new aircraft then throws a dart at a map to pick a new destination.

Besides. I thought Alan Joyce said the aircraft would be servicing the HNL and Japan international routes first.

It's absolutely priceless reading some of the comments on the Qantas Facebook page with the amount of people questioning "why jetstar getting the 787 first?"

With thanks to Mstr Caution but Jacana - seriously:

- JQ new route to Jakarta suddenly appears?
- pilots being trained in Melbourne?

Jetstar website still says MEL-OOL and MEL-CNS from 13th November then Bali from 18th December.

There is a 787 Sim going in at the QF Sim building in Essendon. Is it operational yet?

Guys with a 2010 start date are getting FO slots on wide bodies now.

That will slow down though as expansion slows and recruitment dies off. I'd expect it'll be 5 years for guys with 2011 start dates.

It's got to be better though than 17 years right now in the sistership.
