Yep, wait until you're halfway across the Pacific before unleashing that stuff.

I read that someone is suggesting a "rainbow roo" pin that staff can wear at work...

'One of the issues that I think we have to address is that maybe we have got the pilot pay a bit on the low side,” O’Leary said. “Maybe we have pushed it a little bit far in terms of pilot pay and pilot productivity.'

For those who are or were flying overseas and applied for QF, did QF accept the current instrument proficiency check on your overseas license or did you have to do one back home before applying? It's the only thing not really specified on the minimum requirements.

Cheers

November may be the last.

I was told they’ll allow you to attend an assessment day with an overseas rating, but if successful, you’ll need an Aussie rating before your start date.

Is it likely that applications for SO will open again, possibly in the new year?

Cheers.

Yes, it is in the cards. I'd suggest getting stuck into your psychometric practice exams.

Yes. It's highly likely that they'll be opening up applications early next year.

Given the expansion over the next few years as well as the normal turnover due to retirements there's plenty on offer for a career at QF. You'll never see the crazy rapid promotion that you see overseas but there's a lifestyle reason for that.

To put it another way, people are being asked if they want to go PER 737 FO in their first week at the company with other bases not far off. That's not going to last forever of course but nothing ever does.

Horses for courses but I'd suggest that for anybody who wants to live in Aus this is still a very good gig. If you're more interested in getting a widebody window seat in the shortest time possible then you're best off overseas.

The latest A330 FO SYD positions were awarded to pilots with 15 years seniority.

QF now has two airlines: a senior east coast one, and a junior west coast one.
