Is Network still accepting positions on the F100 as DEC or FO?

An article was published in The Age/SMH a week ago and a Qantas manager was quoted as saying they expect to hire pilots late 2022 if the recovery goes the way they want it to. I can't post links.

Heard from a few that recruitment might be starting up again. Nothing specific. Wouldn’t surprise me.

Despite Telfers constant doom and gloom of the world ending, QF recruitment will be going gang busters soon enough. Be ready!

Assuming the 380ís theyíve mentioned come back, with the 3 787ís, different mix of flying on the 330, and longer pacific sectors planned for the 737 we are massively short of crew. Of course that assumes everything goes close to plan. Throw in some 3 fiddies and it will probably be the biggest recruiting drive theyíve done.

of course, someone somewhere sneezes and the snot is a different colour, weíre back where we startedÖ.

Agreed. After every bust cycle thereís a boom cycle. Rinse and repeat.

Well if you expected to get a phone call with a start date between then and now you are in the wrong industry. (In fact donít expect a phone call- Itíll be a very generic email!). There will continue to be speed humps

There are 200+ of the most junior crew on long term leave without pay. They will need to be recalled and re-trained before external pilots are hired.

There are the remainder of the B744 pilots who will need to be re-allocated and re-trained.

No A380s are currently flying. All A380 crew are available for movement onto other fleets (if needed).

Many A330 crew are stood down still or on partial pay.

Due to the border closures in WA and QLD the 737 pilot workforce is not being properly utilized. In addition a large amount of that workforces flying has or is going to be outsourced to Alliance and Network in the coming years.

There will not be a need for pilot recruiting in QF for a very very long time. And with commands now running at 18+ years you will be a co-pilot for the majority of your career now.

Mohikan, you are missing the A350 bit, Sunrise is slated to start 2024 and I too think itís QFs chance to monopolise/gain market share/expand with direct flights.

And you havenít mentioned the VRs, early retirements and people just pulling the pin because itís not the same job.

Maybe you are spot on with your timeline, but I hope you are wrong

Domestic is slated to be 110% of pre-COVID levels in the new year (similar to what’s happening in the states). 78 is stretched with the current schedule, hence the 200 non-revenue sectors the fleet will be doing to get crew checked out (not to mention the lack of airframes

BTW 380 just getting announced to come back by Christmas.

Going to need pilots

Itís great news but I take it with a grain of saltÖI remember earlier this year the chorus of 110% domestic capacity being spruiked around the network, to be stood down just weeks later.
Sure, the situation is different with the vaccines, but with a huge spike of cases in the UK and with variants of Delta emerging how popular will travel to other destinations actually be for leisure travel other than visiting family?

BTW 380 just getting announced to come back by Christmas.
One back by year's end to manage crew training with another back early in the new year to commence Sydney-LAX ops in April.
Three more from July 2022 with the remaining 5 back in service through to 2024.

Some better news than most Qantas A380 pilots have heard in the last 20 months.

I currently work in the tourism industry, so my expectations are as much as theyíve been for the last 6months. However needless to say things are on the way up!

there is always a light at the end of the tunnel! AJ was on sunrise this morning announcing theyíre taking out there A380 out of desert storage in preparation for Christmas!

Fingers, Toes, everything crossed we can all get back to normal 👌🏻

Within 18 months we need to promote 20-30 A330 Captains and F/Os, and another 50 A380 Captains and F/Os. About 160 long haul promotions.

Does anyone think weíre currently more than that in excess in the S/O ranks? (Hint, weíre not).

Recruiting by July is my assessmentÖ perhaps earlier. Maybe not 16 per month but I suspect enough trickling in that we can ramp up if needed.
