The judge's verdict found the defendant's breached PNG constitutional and industrial law. This finding should be ample for the industrial relations commision to take action against Air Niugini Ltd and correct those breaches.

As one of the 'Wall of Famers' following the case I'm truely disappointed in the turn of events. But, not surprised! The joys of doing business in a corrupt developing country.

We all hope that it is a clerical error and that all will be rectified so that the three Plaintiffs are standing on the same ground. Unfortunately I do not believe this is the case. The court orders are too Black and White to be the case.

Political influence, loss of face, and corruption will leave these men high and dry.

Here is an article about the terminated 8. Have a look at the responses.

http://www.looppng.com/png-news/supreme-court-dismisses-pilots’-appeal-64395

Also been informed that a directive has been issued from very high up in the political ranks to other PNG companies that if they employ any of them then they may have issues renewing their AOC's and expats work permits.

Who said PNG is corrupt.

As for the Raffie, B scale 2015 contract I am told. Clever Raffie.

I have worked with all the Capt's in this so called ANG "Terminated 8" I can't speak highly enough of them as Airline Professionals & "Bloody Good Blokes"! The "cesspool of corruption" that this Govt. & Airline has become is beyond belief! Best outcome is for as many pilots, of those remaining " to walk", shut the place down, & and start again from scratch.

Yes I'm sure some Somare's exchanged hands in the process faheel. That would fall under the corruption.

The engineering issues continue to escalate.

Received a report that a Fokker had an inflight shutdown ex Tokua.

I was quite impressed when I heard about the fingernail fairing departing the Dash courtesy of a tyre.

"The engineering issues continue to escalate".

And this engineering expertise being displayed on jurassic aircraft leased by PNGs Flag carrying airline, whose management somehow believes it has the ability to be the hub between the Pacfiic and Aust.!!!!!!!!!!

I have always found this to be a quite incomprehensible goal. PNG being a hub between Australia and Asia seems to me analogous to Germany being a hub between France and Asia......why would you bother? Fly direct and miss out an unnecessary stop/sh!thole (depending on the example you consider) and arrive hours/days (depending on the example you consider) earlier.

Casey Stoner's quip to Valentino Rossi after a particularly tempestuous Spanish MotoGP........"Your ambition outweighs your talent" could well be directed at PX management on this point. Perhaps PX management should concentrate on completing a domestic on time performance of better than 50% before looking afar. I know I know 50% is a lofty goal from current numbers but you gotta aim high!

Yeah, Stoner's sledge is applicable. Give 'em some credit though - the government has succeeded in making the place a hub for corruption.

Management are just the true believers' of the politicians and current PNG leadership. Whose stated policy is to become the Dubai of the pacific and that they are heading that way.Lah Lah land and analogies of Ostriches and heads in the sand come to mind or perhaps more aptly the three monkeys.

Time for an update on where the pilots are with regards the Court Orders which precluded the expats from being included.

The information that I have received indicates that with the changeover of company lawyers things got a bit messy with regards submitted affidavits, applications etc etc.

Compounding this was the delay in issuing the Orders which then meant the appeal date closure had passed. My information is that you have up to 40 days to lodge an appeal yet the Orders were issued after 40 days.

So another appeal has to be lodged to extend the appeal date. This has now been done and they await a hearing to determine if their appeal is successful. If so then they can lodge another appeal against the actual Orders to have the PNGAPA to be included in the Orders.

I hope my very reduced summary of what I have received covers the main points. There is a lot more information available but I have kept this post as simple as possible.

Meanwhile life in paradise continues as normal - dismally.

Is it thought a bit sus that the Orders got issued after the Appeal period finished so they couldn't appeal??

Or am I reading too much of the old conspiracy suff into it all??

Time for some light humour.

https://m.facebook.com/story.php?sto...74724655878768

Over 20,000 grade 12 students right across the country sat for the Written Expression Examination today.

EMTV News visited two schools in Port Moresby – Jubilee Catholic Secondary and Port Moresby National High – which saw over 300 students start the exams on time, at 8:30am.

The three-hour exam was based on the topic of Air Niugini’s achievements in recent years.

The second lot of National Exams for Grade 12 students will be in October.
