After the recent training advertisement - is there any respectable guess at when SO A330 will no longer be offered and all recruitment onto 787?.

No SO's have been allocated PER as yet.

Re 380 SO positions.

4 SYD based 380 SO positions and 4 PER based 73' FO positions were advertised to JQ pilots under the MOU in early May.

380 positions should get some interest.

and to follow on - will QF consider CCQ onto the A330 to ease the training burden ?

Can you CCQ to SO?

Why? The only pilots eligible are all Captains.

1) Change of scenery.
2) Similar money
3) So something different than A320 domestic ops
4) See a few destinations
5) Try a different company

MOU number will probably be very close to PER 330 FO and in a couple of years 330 east coast.

Most of them are 787 Captains so all of your points are wrong.

In what way?
We just had an A330 training Captain take a A380 S/O slot so you never know!

So you can speak for all of those can you??

Don't concern yourself. If people want to take the opportunity they will. If they don't, they won't.

Life is not all about sitting in the same LHS for the next 15-20 years

3 years, no jeopardy, Nov 04 seniority number 1649 (most junior 330 PER FO 1648), same money, 10-15 (at most) days per month at work, 4 crew (i.e. proper crew rest), QF LH EBA, overtime, stable roster, no Jetstar.

Just ask the RIN'ed 76' FOs.

This is a no brainer. If you don't like it, go back to 78' command at the end of tenure and that's it, or take advantage of three years to see where the "group" is going, keep you 04 seniority number and make the most of it.

CCQ on to 330 - QF have a contractual problem with new hires, must be onto 330 and now 787. 330 training is at capacity, need bums on 380 seats, MOU - 330/320 endorsed pilots to 380 SO training path. Simple solution, I think there will be more than 4 slots filled.

The reasons behind that are not applicable to any discussion of the MOU.

The reasons are irrelevant.

The fact is that not everyone has the same idea of an ideal life or career and some Jetstar Captains may wish to take advantage of the MOU.

I would suggest that at this point you should send an email asking for an update.

If you've heard nothing yet then you're still in with a chance as so many others have received a negative response.

Send an email, they don't bite.

When are they going to be opening up for fresh applications ? Surely they must be getting close to processing everyone who previously applied ??

Mulisector, suspect it won't be until closer to the end of the year. 1300 applicants last time. As of a few weeks ago there were still a couple of hundred to go through.

Keg, how many have they actually taken from the previous round of applications ? Are we talking like 100 extra numbers on seniority or more ?

Just under 100 in total since we started August last year- 60ish were ex cadets and LOI holders. That's forecast to continue at 16-20 per month until the end of the year at least. There are some training capacity issues that may see a couple of intakes smaller than others.

Pretty sure it was 170 for the year...not total. The wording left it open for future recruitment I thought

There are a fair few on the hold file too so I hope start dates are given for those before further recruitment proceeds.
