Depends on days worked and destinations. AUD 295 per 24 hours in all the 787 overseas ports and don't forget ODTA/ADTA - approx $65 and $30 per day each. I'd say 15k would be conservative but allowances will obviously vary.

Do you have to pay tax on these allowances or not?

In short, yes in most cases on a small portion. The allowance is based on the ATO allowable figure but calculated slightly differently, leading to a small amount above the ATOs allowance which is taxable. In most cases it’s less than 10% of the total allowance.

I’m wondering if anyone would happen to know whether or not Qantas is planning to interview or advertise for externals this year, or ever again directly into Mainline? I’ve heard a rumour that they plan to only hire internally from within the group from their subsidiaries. The reason I am asking is to figure out my next career move and whether or not to hold out for Mainline to advertise for externals or join one of their subsidiaries. Any info will be greatly appreciated!

Some people say its impossible to support a family on single income especially being an SO but what about 737 pay? I am interested in Perth base opportunities.
I’m doing it quite comfortably. Single income, couple of kids (both in daycare) couple of mortgages. Still maintain a decent lifestyle. But I guess everyone has a different definition of what a good lifestyle is.

Just got to watch those split dinner bills when away

edit it to say that’s on a 787 SO wage

And if people are going to add Super and allowances to those figures, why not chuck in a value for your hotel accommodations, your home transport, crew meals, etc, etc?

Perhaps just quoting the Taxable Gross is best, that’s what people use to pay their bills and live on, and it’s what will more accurately represent hours worked.

Don't believe the "it's not what it used to be" nonsense the QF pilots are all doing very nicely

$180k would be top 2 or 3 or 4 % of the income group in Australia it ain't all bad

& guys have got that with 1200 hours and just a couple of years in the work force

Can you please elaborate on the early staff travel for Perth base? I thought it was minimum 6 months (from start date) for everyone?

Staff travel starts after training is completed for 787SO’s that are Perth based and are Commuting. Not sure exactly how that is determined(address in contact details or specific request required). It is a special clause for just the above.

Thanks Bulldog!

Whilst on topic. Any truth to this “cash allowance” for Perth base that some guys have mentioned?

Cheers

170k?! Tell em he’s dreaming...

Not even close to that. Expect 130. But remember, you’re on training wage before that.

No that is incorrect, I believe that is being confused with the initial training allowances which is applicable to anyone who is not based or resides in Sydney. There are two options, the first is the company pay for and organise transport and accomodation throughout training and the the second, you can elect to get a lump sum payment and you organise it all yourself

no problems. I’m not aware of any allowances that are 787 SO specific. The training allowance response to your question seems to be about right.

Cheers

Are there 330 pilot bases in BNE and PER? I expect so but have heard two different things.

Yes, but PER doesn’t have a Second Officer base.

Thanks, that also explains the inconsistency of what I have been told.

There is no internal whispers so this is all crystal ball stuff but I hazard a guess at probably not before this time next year just by looking at the ones coming through. There are still people from the 2016 recruitment drive coming through on courses

You can generally find good deals on the airport hotels if you book far enough in advance. Otherwise find a classmate to buddy up with and rent a two-bedroom apartment, you can save a bit of money and I've heard the Meriton is quite good. All depends on how much you're willing to fork out.
