Does anyone have any idea when the first interviews are kicking off for 2024? i.e Late Jan, Feb?
Any ideas on when potential start dates for 2024 interviewees could commence?
Cheers

Just wondering

Just wondering, maybe I've missed it.

It sounds like the LH EBA will be up for negotiation again soon. Can anyone advise if there is talk of improving (amongst other things) the salary of the Second Officers on the new pay scale. Not really a liveable salary in the major ports.

How low do people think the A321 may go on the seniority list?

Thanks in advance!

That ship only recently just sailed and it might not be coming back for a while.

Plenty of SH slots available in most ports, that pay in excess of LH SO rates though. Just saying

What Ďship has only recently just sailed?í

Didnít AIPA put up a court challenge to the B scale? Thatís probably a better shot than them negotiating an increase for the new Second Officers. Especially noting that they still havenít even got a sim or qualified any trainers on the A350.

Surely the longer it goes the stronger a case getsÖ.

As long as they keep getting application numbers well in excess of positions available then thereís no incentive to increase pay. Iíve heard about 1000 applicants for 200 positions to be interviewed throughout this year

For F/O? Probably the same as 737. So within a year or so for most.

Is that out of those given assessment centre slots? In other words, if you have an assessment centre date, what is the chance of ending up with a start date?

same job, same pay - aside, the concession was given away on the last EBA. Thatís the ship I was referring to. Court proceedings will only delay the inevitableÖwhen the plane actually NEEDS pilots to be trained on it.

No I believe thatís total applicants. Not all applicants would get the go ahead to start the assessment process, and not all of those who are assessed will make it to the hold file. But Iím not sure how many got invited to be assessed.

QF Domestic Cabin Crew Applications

Hi everyone, does anyone know when QF will put the call out for Sydney based domestic cabin crew applications?

Is there a future in mainline short haul? Qantas currently has 75 737s that are being replaced by a confirmed 20 A320s. With the current recruitment taking pilots direct to the 737 what will happen to the excess short haul pilots as the 737 fleet is reduced?

QF is currently hiring 1500 pilots over 10 years. Take out the amount of projected retirements and expansion of LH flying with the Sunrise aircraft and that stills leaves several hundred excess pilots, so they arenít going to remove 70% of SH flying out of the system.

Thereís 134 combined narrowbody replacements and terminals arenít big enough for them to be all A220s so I expect more 321XLRs to be ordered in future years to cope with this.

They’ll probably go fly more 321’s. The current 737 fleet wasn’t ordered in one hit of 75. The 330 wasn’t. The 787’s weren’t. The 350 isn’t even here and it’s been ordered in stages. Why would the 321 be any different?

Probably a good chance to fly the a220 too 🤪
