To be fair, OTP was comedic even before QLink took over. Which operator in their right mind would have no engineering coverage in busy capital city ports like Melbourne and Hobart??

B717 engineering coverage is provided where Qantas want it - they decide the coverage, not Cobham.

A mate of a mate just told me that the AFAP has lodged with FWA regarding these two aircraft. Wierd that such a positive thing would cause this to happen. Any info?

Why don't you ask your mate to ask his mate, I'm sure they'll spill the beans. Probably something quite mundane but important to the troops.

Sounds like a pretty standard response from the unaffected Aerocat.

A potentially forced, short notice, self funded, relocation due to base reduction is no laughing matter. Lodging with FWA is not something the AFAP do for a laugh either.

You are right about something though, this is very important to the troops, especially once the precedence has been set.

An extra 10 tech and 15 cabin crew for the HB base. If only there was engineering support to improve the OTP
