Its going to be a bad day, the 27th. Security staff say they are being booked in for overtime for Thursday.
Will there be another shutdown?

Whoooaaa, 4 holer you should go get your BP checked and possibly see a psychiatrist. My and every QF job is on the line but you seem more stressed than anyone on here. Maybe just a cup of tea, a bex and a good lie down might be in order. It might just hide your sadistic delight in QF staff losing their jobs.

I don't believe it, someone is actually telling it how it is.

Don't fall for the Qantas ruse - Business - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Wonder if they will pull the stunt with NSW Police and anonymous death threats again to the divert media focus??? Be prepared because they have form.

To use one of Alan Joyce's phrases.

"It's time to stop kicking the can down the street"

AJ started and grew JQ as its first CEO, some would say to the detriment of the Qantas brand.

However.

Could somebody please tell me any of Alan's achievements regarding the mainline business?

AJ & the board need to go.

They have been responsible for the Terminal Decline & need to be removed before the travelling public loose faith in the carrier and forward bookings drop off.

Lurching from one crisis or calamity to another is hardly a way to run a business.

The airline is suffering from self harm & those responsible need to be removed.

Apparently QF is saying the SYD-JNB flight will continue after the announcement, and there is no changes to the daily schedule it operates now. (In an internal email to employees) There has been talk of it going but in all honesty if QF cant make it work on a monopoly route with no end of line carrier issues, and a high yielding one at that then it couldnt make it on any route internationally.

When the good news is they are maintaining one daily route then it cant bode well for bad news....

Ohallen.

AJ's wounds are all self inflicted.

Mate, people are suffering, they have mortgages, commitments, kids, and are feeling a bit sick right now. QF staff do not make the decisions about how the airline behaves, they are simply the people who have to carry them out. Gloating over so many, feeling fear and discomfort, says a lot about you.

Mods, while we are at it, we need a like button thingy on here....

Well said MC

SOPS, It's a good piece from the ABC, to their credit, they got in early, it's only Monday a sign the little bloke is going to have a rough ride on Thursday's unveiling,
In the past six years, Qantas has made a myriad mistakes. Its aircraft use too much fuel. It invested and concentrated on budget operation Jetstar, while management openly trash talked the performance of its international operations.
He may lose his shirt this time.... Also, I'm sure the "troll dancing" on here will gather to a furious pace as the week progresses...

They have been out in force on the various blogs for a month now, unlike last year... Another signal they are bit more concerned about a media backlash... Pascoe gave it some today as well

I could be wrong,but,.......it seems to me that some of the media has finally woken up to just what is going on, or has finally decided to report what is actually going on.

Yes it's taken a long time but Joyce has burnt up all his credibility and played one too many cards this round. I doubt very much if the government will do much. Truss is way ahead of most and Hockey will have to lead by example that he spoke of recently in front of the G20. For Joyce its obvious he cried wolf once too often and the spin and lies has finally caught up with him. What a terrible pity! This year will be his last I feel. One has to wonder why the previous CEO and now Joyce shit canned the airline for ten years or more. What was the ulterior motive?

Well, the "public interest" level has increased, and to them it makes it worthwhile to report on it to make a dollar.
They knew what was going on but now,they've decided to jump on the bandwagon.
We can only hope there is some serious reporting taking place on Thursday.

The one serious reporting I want to see on Thursday is Joyce's and Clifford's resignation.

The rest will be the same old crap about unions, Aussie employees, Aussie dollar, Jetstar the Amaaazing, unprofitable routes, QSA, Dirty Virgins, etc.

So, on the 27th, instead of all of us sitting around crying in our Beers, lets buy our fellow colleagues a coldie and toast to the 27th, as it shall be remembered as

"Fv<K off ALAN DAY!"

Cheers

basket case, case study, something like that

In years to come, the brazen rape of Qantas will become a thing of folklore and everyone will wonder "how was it allowed to happen".
This is absolutely business management case study material , and not in a good way.
