Thanks mate ! Does the contract only stipulate hourly rates and not base salary? I might be missing something hereÖ here at Air NZ the contract is inclusive of LH and SH with base salaries. Im trying to compare the two contracts to see if its worth giving QF ML a shot

Good Luck with that!, trying to understand the Qantas EBA takes a degree in itself. There are NO Ďbase salaryí figures and like the Air NZ contract multiple other payments on top of the min guarantee. As stated above you can ask a current SO what the take home pay is but you hear some pretty incredible figures :-)

does everyone in the group that applies get an interview? you obviously have to submit cover letter/ resume in application but wonder if its essentially a guaranteed interview

First year 787 SO would be just shy of $150k depending on a few variables.

Year 4 B787 SO. Will crack 200K including allowances. Say what you want about allowances but I donít spend anywhere near all of mine and I still manage to have a good time. The role isnít challenging but I donít work a lot and when I do I spend half of it horizontal.

Minimum guaranteed hours x hourly rate = base salary.

The SH contract is a separate document - be aware that SH has a much lower minimum guaranteed vs hours actually rostered so can sometimes deceptively mislead people to think the minimum guaranteed wage is close to rostered pay - it is actually much higher on average.

The average divisors in LH are closer to the MGH but at the moment they are higher than usual.

Thats great thanks for being helpful and sharing ! Was trying to compare if theres much difference currently from Air NZ to Qantas and seems to be slightly more. Definitely SH would be my pick which seems more closer to $180K. Lets get through the doors first then worry about 1st world problems. Any tips or recommendations on interview process would be appreciated too. Thanks.

SH fo I gather is comfortably 220-230 all up.

Use pinstripe solutions once you get psyc test etc and practice the test first.

Licences

Anyone have information on whether I can apply for positions at Qantas even if I don't currently possess Australian licenses? I'm located in the UK, hold a Australian permanent residency and in the process of converting my licenses. Can I apply to selection then complete the licences conversion while in the hold pool ? Cheers

Here are the minimum requirements so if you don’t meet any of these at the time you apply, you probably won’t get to the first stage, that being an invitation to psychometric testing.

Hi,

I've been flying in SE Asia since 2012. However, it's been 11 years since I last renewed my CASA license and Class 1 medical. If the Qantas application deadline is on November 7th, I won't have sufficient time to complete the renewal process. Is it feasible to submit my Qantas application without the current CASA license and medical, with the intention of renewing them early next year during my annual leave?

My last MECIR renewal was conducted on a BE55. Could someone kindly recommend a flight school for the renewal and roughly how long it takes for both the renewal and the medical examination? Thank you so much.

Current IR is NOT required - as long as you have had one before

For the application, you actually donít need the license at hand - only for the interview.

Initial medical takes a few days if you are organized (hearing test, piss test, blood test, eye test) - processing times 2-4 weeks

You have plenty of time up your sleeve if you get on with it.

The IR has to be current according to their minimum requirements checklist. "Hold a current Instrument Proficiency Check (MEA) "

Whatís the difference between a start delay and a hold pool? 🤔

Either way, you go into a hold pool.
