I doubt it but why not? Qantas is giving away the Pacific with its lack of capacity due COVID recovery mismanagement. US carriers should make an all out assault and use Australian labour and why not highlight this to the general public? I mean Aussie pilots would still call Australia homeÖÖ 😎

The only US carrier with a major presence in the Sth Pacific is United. So, using them as an example.

1. Why would they establish a base in an outport? If they did, it would have to be crewed from the seniority list, leading to:
2. Of the Aussies currently flying for UAL, all of us can hold SFO 777 FO, some can hold SFO 787 FO, I’m not aware of any having the seniority for 777/787 PIC (multiple decades). So how would they crew it?

Makes absolutely no sense, which is why the OP is full of it.

Iím not on the inside as you appear to be, but I agree that it makes no sense and surely canít be true. Why would UA bother?

How does that work when everyone Australian in the US is on the same contract, apart of the same union, apart of the same seniority system as the locals?

He means by opening a base in Aus and then paying local salaries which are super cheap compared to what weíre being paid in the US at the moment.

It was a tongue in cheek comment

LOL, not a chance. Decades ago there was a London pilot base but that was a left over of the PanAm route purchase. Thereís no reason to open any overseas bases.

Meanwhile, back in Australia, the Qantas group, Virgin and Rex have probably already submitted their request to be included in the latest push for more skilled migrants to fill those places left by the 'exodus' of pilots to the US.

Nothing makes me happier than the thought of watching Australian operators squirm for pilots.

Nothing better than seeing a fleet of aircraft parked up due to crew shortages. Especially F100s and A320s! Well done Alan, you deserve this, this is all for you!
