Throw away line, apologies if viewed with evil intent.

Smallish operation, to know some of the inmates/have past history doesn't hurt.

Just arrived Perth from Singapore. Anyone know whether it will be based in Perth and operated by Network A320 drivers perhaps?

The CP and Dep CP are both ex Jetstar, I also believe some DECís onto the A321. There was LWOP opportunities for positions in MEL advertised to Jetstar pilots earlier this year.

Melbourne based led by RH. Nothing to do with Network. I wouldnít be basing an old machine that has just been cut into for the first time too away from engineering either.

I nearly fell over when someone told me they were planning on cutting into 20+ year old Airbus machines on the verge of max pax spar limit. Bound to keep the engineers busy.

Yeah Iím sure they put all the time and effort into a P2F without knowing what they are doing!

Be interesting to see what company the engineers work for.
Was told jq have said they want nothing to do with it,guess its not important though,a ceo once said modern aircraft dont need maintenance,just the same as a modern car🙄

Being stripped bare and rebuilt in a German hangar? Probably better than new!

Whatís going on with this machine? I think it was mentioned earlier that slicing and dicing was going to cause problems and it appears to have been nothing but a headache since it got here.

Are the crews still getting paid while it sits grounded indefinitely?

How long has it been grounded?
Long list of wet leased 146s & anything else that can be found filling the void i guess.

Looks like it’s been racking up the parking fees in ML since 28 Nov.
Guess this will pay for all the news concrete at Tullamarine.

As I said, go cutting into these pieces of junk expect problems.

They barely did any air testing once the conversion was complete. They didnít push it hard enough to see its flaws. You can have have German or whatever engineers doing whatever you please to it on the ground, however the real test is up above. I think the failures on first leg to Perth said it all. Doomed ever since.

Which is why they most certainly should not go cutting away at Y and Z.

What exactly is the problem?

B747, 757, 767, etc have been P2F for years.

Teething problems?

Nothing happens when the coffee button is pressed. NO DISPATCH item. Engineers attempting to locate the missing 'part'.
