No delays. Rescheduled to next month.

Hahahaha 93% OTP as high as 100% are just outright lies.

I’m not sure that the those figures are a lie. It’s just that PX use a rather generous four weeks window rather than the industry standard of 15 minutes.

(OAG’s definition of on-time performance (OTP) is flights that arrive or depart within 14 minutes and 59 seconds (under 15 minutes) of their scheduled arrival/departure times.

Air Niugini’s definition of on-time performance (OTP) is flights that arrive or depart within four weeks of their scheduled arrival/departure times.)

Just heard a rumour that the long awaited court decision may have been delayed even further.
If the rumours are true judges have been asked by certain pollies not to announce it until after APEC.
Suggestion is if done before and in favour of the pilots Poxie cannot afford the backpay and if it goes in favour of Poxie then there will be another mass exodus. Either way Poxie loses.

Also lots of complaints about the new faulty towers. Lower levels do not have micro waves, washing machines etc. And if you want to turn off the bedroom light you can't. Light has a dimmer but no switch. Clever!

Yes we have heard it before but I am being told there will possibly be a decision by the end of the month.
From the pilot's lawyer the previous rumour is unfounded.
More likely is it is a landmark decision that will impact upon all private companies and unions and therefore has required a very thoroughly researched desicion.


And as for faulty towers.... pilots are now saying Gateway and Ela Vista are superior, one even suggests living in a 30 year old Vicount caravan would be a better alternative.

More chance of world peace then a court ruling in PNG.

Any truth to Boeing pilots “helping the company” with Fokker Checking once they turn 65?

Yes, some truth to that. Over 65s. Not sure about the checking part. They would have to learn how to handle a Pitts first.

If what I was told tonight proves to be correct (and I have absolute faith in my source) and the reported negotiations are successful a bombshell is to be announced shortly.

Might be time to learn a new language.

I was told negotiations are in the final stages.
It appears Mangi Fokker​ has heard the same rumour.

Only way that will work Olderairhead is if the new owners bulldoze the current management and board, otherwise it will be a case of “throwing good money after bad”.

Rumour only at this stage but from what I am being told there may be a lot of substance to it. Only the messenger passing on what I have been told.

Might be one of those soft loans. MPs get the money, PNG gets the debt and China gets the airline. At least China knows the true value of tech crew.

Yes they do pay well, but pray to your God you will never have to do a Chinese medical!

Good time to take loss of licence insurance, especially if anything gets a B rego...

Govt Makes Amends To SOE Boards

August 24, 2018

Prominent businessman Sir Kostas Constantinou has been appointed as new chairman of Air Niugini in sweeping changes to boards of government owned businesses that was announced by Public Enterprises and State Investments Minister William Duma yesterday.

Mr Duma also made changes to Kumul Consolidated Holdings Limited, PNG Post, PNG Power and Air Niugini.

He announced the appointment of Sir Kostas and Mr Ian Jepson as director of the board of Air Niugini following approval by the National Executive Council.
Sir Kostas replaces Sir Frederick Reiher who held the chair for more than three years.

Mr Duma thanked Sir Frederick for his outstanding contribution and service to Air Niugini while serving as deputy and chairman of the company.
Sir Kostas is a prominent business figure and currently holds a number of prominent private sector appointments.

Mr Jepson is a PNG citizen with extensive experience in the construction sector, and is a successful businessman and is executive chairman of Global Constructions Limited.

“The combined experience and qualifications of Sir Kostas and Mr Jepson, and of the other current directors of the board of Air Niugini will help us turn Air Niugini around easily, provide better services, and finally pay real dividends to the shareholders who are the people of Papua New Guinea,” Mr Duma said.

He also announced that the appointment of Leo Meninga as deputy chairman of PNG Power.

Mr Meninga was the deputy chairman of Post PNG, a post he held for two years before resigning upon his appointment as deputy chairman.

PNG Power Ltd has a vital role to play in delivering the government’s twin goals of 70 per cent access to electricity by 2030 and 100 per cent renewable by 2050.

“The combined experience and qualifications of the incoming deputy chairman, chairman Peter Nupiri and other board directors will help turn around one of our important economic development contributors, PNG Power Ltd,” Mr Duma said.

He also announced the appointments of Clement Kanau as deputy chairman and Frank Tokai and David Toua as directors of board of Post PNG Limited.

Mr Kanau replaces Meninga as deputy chairman while Mr Tokai and David Toua have been appointed directors.

Mr Duma announced the appointment of former politician Moses Maladina as director of the board of Kumul Consolidated Holdings Limited replacing Peter Aitsi as director.
