I don't think new joiners will ever get BNE, but it won't be a 5-10 year wait like days gone by.

Should be an easy $100 for you then. PM me and I'll happily put it down.

There is no chance any BNE 737 FO slots will go to new joiners or those who joined pre COVID (2022)

330 FO will go low and will capture 2017 joiners.

If you’re a Sydney SO commuter, BNE won’t be back filled onto the 787. So plan B…wait

And Saunapore on the 380 for new SO's. Dallas if you win the first week (as some may say who really wouldn't have a clue) 737 booby prize (light twin).

It's not an outlier either. Heard of heaps of people getting as late as Q4 '25. Yet they claim it is all based on merit... Yeah right.

Anyways, most have applied to Virgin, and will probably get back into mainline quicker.

It appears even those who are next in line for a command at QLink would rather leave for VA and others than stick around.
