Without seeing exactly what you are referring to (LinkedIn??) if thereís some sort of commuting contract it wonít be LWOP from Aus. Historically HR will eventually let you go on LWOP from Aus but they arenít much help other than approving or denying your request so I seriously doubt theyíd be offering commuting. (Thatís not to imply it doesnít exist through a contract agency)

Itís been discussed on here before, but if you want an aus position or want to come back to aus DONT go via those regeims as you will be employed direct to that entity and there WILL NOT be an option back to aus. You would need to resign and reapply.

That said, if you are simply looking for 320 time and donít give a hoot where you live then from all reports they are great fun, just donít expect to slot back to aus.

A quick google shows 5 agencies recruiting for Jetstar Japan. Looking at Parc, they offer either a permanent contract, or commuting 20 on, 10 off. Iím just curious if those from Jetstar Australia on LWOP, have this option of 20/10, or is it only available to contract crew?? Or in other words, is anyone on LWOP from Australia, on a commuting roster out of Vietnam or Japan?

All expats at Jetstar Pacific (JQ LWOP or not), have the same contracts, so they do 3/1, 6/2, or 9/3

As previously stated FO numbers are high ATM. Priority now for upgrades to balance out CP numbers as they are still maxed out on hours.

LWOP to Japan etc a good option if you happy for the experience. Retain seniority number on AUS list and when you have completed the 2-3yr commitment can come back and slot in to your number.
Well as per recent comms from AFAP there maybe no upgrades for a while. Thank QF management and AIPA for that as they are being pr$&ks about the MOU and not advertising the positions to QF pilots.

I donít think that was what the AFAP email meant. JQ can still upgrade its own FOís, but if the slots arenít advertised to QF pilots then the Q numbers on the list arenít deleted. Anyone who joined qantas prior to 2004 (eligibility to use the MOU) would be senior enough for wide body FO slots over there and I dare say would be getting close to a 737 command. In addition to now having to do 6 months as an FO here, I donít think weíll see too many coming across with things looking so rosy at the mother ship!

I am aware of Kiwi FOs getting commands into Vietnam currently not sure if this is also to Oz crew?

There is most certainly an opportunity to nab a lot of Tiger Airbus Pilots, large disengaged culture within the VA group currently, and those who not wish to move over to 20 year old Boeingís.

In Aus? Absolutely NOT.

Half their luck.... it won't stay that way forever.

It wonít stay that way for long at all.

The average block hours for FOs (except MEL/SYD) is close to 75 hours. Skippers are all pretty close to to 80 in every base with many after a couple of standby call outs pushing 90. With roster balancing everyone needs to be within 6 hours of the average for the their base.

The reason for lower hours in SYD/MEL is most of the new hires are going there before bidding out around the network. So you could say they are slightly overstocked with FOs there.

It is also where a lot a lot of training happens.

What I can see from the numbers though is there will be a large amount of command upgrades very soon.

Itíll be back to 80+ in the coming busy period. So enjoy it while you can.

Anyone got any good info on the selection process (Jstar Oz) post the phone interview? Or at least suggest a good place to start? PM if preferred. Many thanks.

Iíve been on hold since June 2017. Never got a call while may who went on hold after me were offered positions. I never did chase it up however. My advice start following it up with HR. Canít hurt.

Oh wow! I didn't expect it to be that long. I interviewed back in May this year and only entered the hold file a few months back. I'm guessing you got the call already?

Hearing a few things on the grape vine about recruitment, as always take this with a grain of salt.

Looks like Jetstar won't be offering training courses till the 2nd half of 2019.

If this is correct, I feel for the guys who are on the hold file, probably best start looking at other options.

Not sure where you get your info, actually the opposite. Recruitment will be ranked up again next year as they need to fill more left seats and with the 321NeO they will need the extra crew.

And I hope you're right mate, for everyone on the hold file's sake.

Also with the amount of boys and girls on the qantas hold file, they need to be replaced. Rumor mill says 80 pilots leaving the company next year.

I thought the NEOís were just replacement aircraft for older aircraft in the fleet?

With 53 flights cancelled the other day, with 10 already in Melbourne this morning due to crew, I can't imagine a company will allow that to continue.

There is no way a freeze on New pilots will work out for the company.
