So what percentage of pilots are non union? Looks like a few morning flights here and there still going.

Accordingly, if you engage in one or both of the partial work bans listed above, you will not be entitled to any payment for the entire duration of the partial work ban - The period from 0001 on 14 Dec 19 to 2359 20 Dec 2019.
Is that for real? Is Jetstar locking out every pilot who participated in the stoppages this weekend for the whole week ahead?

Certainly puts the financial burden of PIA disproportionately on the backs of the unfortunate crews who were rostered on this weekend. Respect to those pilots for copping the pain to advance the cause for all their colleagues.

" MEMO for Jetstar pilots: we will further discuss wage increases after you learn to use the landing gear."

^^^^ that is actually quite funny, as far as I know all the pilots who have taken part this morning are still on their normal rosters for the week. So either that email was total crap or the company are going to allow those pilots to work but just won't pay them?

I have been told there has been little impact upon the travelling public. Everyone has got to their destination. If this is the case Little Napoleon may have the upper hand.

An important revelation.

No one could have predicted that a Red Tie was an "economic weapon of mass destruction"
Expect to see a sneaky amendment to FWA explicitly forbidding red ties.
It seems actually not flying JQ flights has little economic impact. (a whole other thread's potential!)

Little Napoleon knew.

Nice assessment on the morning of day 1 of the PIA. See what the impact is by the end of next week.

Tigerair PIA cost $12m on a tiny fleet. Multiply that out to Jetstar fleet size and the costs will rack up!

Keep at it fellas (and ladies)!

​​​​​​Uh.. That's the point isn't it? Your not doing PIA to inconvenience the public.
You're costing the company money as they need to implement contingency plans. I.E reaccomodate paxing on the other airlines, charter flights, hotels and effecting forward bookings etc. No doubt they have already spent more than they would have making a few concessions to the pilots. Maybe Allan could donate part of of his 24 million to the cause.

Nothing of course about himself earning 40 to 50 times what the average Australian earns while his baggage handlers especially are treated like second class citizens. All that is wrong with corporate Australia on display here.

Add up the 12 biggest earners in QF and JQ.
The likes of the largess on display is not readily replicated.

Rather than a kangaroo on the tail a pig with its snout in the trough would be far more appropriate.

"Captain's earn over $300,000 a year. They work 30 per cent less than the average Australian and that level of pay rise [15 per cent] simply isn't sustainable," he said.

What a lying @#$*!
Work 30% less than the average Australian?
Where do I sign up?

Obviously the hypocrisy of someone who is paid ~$4M per annum calling out anyone else for being overpaid and underworked is lost on the Jetstar CEO
He was paid $3.7M last financial year, and just shy of $4M in the 2018 financial year.

How could you refer to the commissars as been overpaid? How could you possibly think they are out of touch? Orwell had this lot to a T.

Impressive. So I get paid $305,000 a year. And I do this whilst working 30% less than the average Australian. Average is about 40 hours a week, 30% less 28 hours a week. So that is about 5.6 hours a day, over a 5 day week.

5.6 hours duty is a nice 2 sector day, and puts me around 70 hours flying for the month.

So somehow, despite the fact I'm 5 hours short of even getting into overtime, I'm able to turn my 200k base into 300k, and only ever have to do 2 sectors! And don't forget thats only average, meaning 50% of the pilots earn even more!!

I'm honestly at a loss as to how these lies are told seemingly without consequence.
