I think they’ve got enough applications to process and fill courses for most of next year, so I wouldn’t expect recruitment to reopen until late next year, but as usual in aviation it could be totally variable so be ready to put an application in if it reopens unexpectedly sooner.

Did the process mid year. I’ve been told first half of 2023 by hr, so 6-9 months could be about right unless you have jet time it may be faster. I think most getting on course this year are ex jet drivers

Are you surprised? Have you heard what’s happening up there? Surprised the number is not in the hundreds.

The smart ones who were on non expat contracts left in 2016-2019.

Yes of course, why would Qantas treat the people already in the group with any sort of respect or appreciation. . Absolute pricks.

Recruiting internally costs more due to the fact you need to train 2 people instead of one.

I’m guessing you won’t be working for said “pricks” then?

It’s basic business economics really, why take from internal businesses when they’re already short and external options exist that won’t leave other parts of the business struggling.

Be lucky there’s even an option. Years ago you would have been dreaming to move internally.

90’s there was next to no chance to go from qantaslink to mainline . Took 3 in 9 years while get a job at kendals and get a mainline seniority number same day it seemed . Why take from your own regionals and incur a cost ? Take from opposition and they incur the cost .

slowest way into mainline is via qantas regionals . Been like this for 30+ years .

So give a seniority number to those people whom Qlink, EFA etc can't release etc then it doesn't matter if it takes a year or two. But that would require Qantas to actually respect and appreciate their people.

Haha what a joke that is. Loyal pilots who’ve stayed in the group have been pushed to the bottom of the hold file while others at the competition have been given priority….

True although the company has made big changes to streamline the internal AOC transfer process in recent years. Obviously there's reason for this...? Perhaps they see the benefit in hiring from 'within'

What’s everyone’s thoughts on joining as a 45 year old. Good move or not? Other options are command a320 but at secondary carriers.

I think its personal choice. I know many Mid 40 and early 50 year olds going to mainline for the lifestyle with view to retire in a decade.
