A pain in the backside
I could live with that. But probably not a pain in the heart!

Start date for JQ. Imagine QF is the same?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but looks like a guy who started a week ago just got awarded an F/O 737 Perth spot. Is that a record? Start date next roster too so won't even pick up an A330 manual, haha

14 A380 S/O slots to those who have joined since August last year. I think a half dozen to the 744 too.

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.

So how many of those JQ guys went over to the 737 and A380?

I don't know or care.
However the ability to do it should be there, as per the MOU.

Once on the mainline list in an MOU spot, is the pilot eligible to bid for any vacancy? Or do they see out the term of the MOU as a 380 SO, and can only bid if they resign from JQ?

JQ pilots under QF MOU can bid for any vacancy with no change to their fixed term.

Thanks lancer. Is there an initial freeze period? E.g. The 380 SO position could already get PER 330.

No initial freeze period. Recent intakes have been awarded 380SO and 737FO transfers within their first 6 months.

I guess the only restriction would be the return of service limitation. If you can't serve 2 years on the new type then the company can choose not to award you the position. May mean a decision on whether to stay at QF or return to JQ would need to be brought forward before being awarded the slot.

Just completed my medical and X reference check..... do they send you to the shrink before or after the medical? Also, was there any rejection after the " the all done " lately ?

Cheers guys

Joseph Goebbels would be my first choice. And that is not entirely a joke...

Yep. I vaguely recall hearing 12 (or maybe 22?) on the 744 and possibly even some on the A380. Foreseeable and predicted when negotiating EBA8.

Apologies Keg. I amended my post.

Looks like the Day One Lottery (beyond the A330 and 787) is Back. Good luck to those who win.
