The system had recently changed C441. You now get the full ATO rate including incidentals from sign on at home base, to sign off at home base (with rules about when the rate changes based on which level of the scale the place you are going is on). So you are also now getting DTA while in the air. The time in Port system is gone.

a captain flying narrow-body planes would make $475,000 ($718,000AU) at the top of the scale, up $135,000. ($204,000 AU) from current pay, while the most senior captains of wide-body planes would make $590,000 per year. ($892,000 AU), a $170,000 increase ($257,000 AU) from today.
​​​​​​​My conversions.

Back in Aus it’s pay freezes and 2% a year. 🤨

It is disheartening when Qantas is making money hand over fist and we still get the Ďwe have to keep hold in costsí and they talk about recruitment but not retention!

No one to blame apart from the pilots in this case, if we accept the 2/3% pay increase and people actually think is a good deal we deserve what we get = nothing.

On the recruitment side, the emails came out for Jetstar saying "we will release candidates 2 per month starting at the end of 23 by seniority", sounds like the hold is going to last for many years.

What this means is that Qantas Pilots pay for their own endorsement.

Gosh, an SOís job on a 787 must be harder than the same job on an A330/350. Who would have thought? LOL

Pretty sure I know my hourly rate

$103 X 160 = $16,480 per bid period. $16,480 X 6.5 bid periods per year = $107,120 per year.

Tell me where I went wrong and Iíll happily be corrected.

Fair enough, Iíll agree with that.

However for most pays of the year (assuming only MGH), the payslip reflects more of a $107kíish amount with the odd one above it.

So you really think $120,000 pa would keep you out of the Maddington rental market?

well lets see... did a quick calc on standard bills and food. Add in the $500 rental in Maddington, say 1 car loan for a toyota camry. $1380 a week, this includes power, regos, all insurances, food etc...divided between 52 weeks for 2 adults. So enjoy that $235 you have left over at the end of each week, and god help you if you have a hecs debt or children. All for the privilege of renting in Maddington. This country is officially a f..king joke!

Wow $890k pa in Aussie dollars and the shortage has only really started within the last 12 months. I never had any ambition to fly in the Middle East or Asia but to live in the US and earn that kind of money definitely has my attention.

$720AUD for narrow body command ainít bad either especially considering time to command at the moment is 18 months. The last few vacancies at American and United had unfilled 737/320 command slots.

No jet pilot should live in conditions like that.

Aim higher. You're better than Maddington.

Yes $720k ainít bad, however Iíll take my $250k live in a good country not be worried about being shot at whilst getting a coffee or sending my kids to school and wonder if Iíll be able to pick them up. America a crazy ass land to which there is not enough money in the world to get me there to even visit.
