Morno, all I am going to say is when I went to JQ on the MOU 95% of the people were great, 5% were like you, with encouraging phrases like "skygod's come here to show us how it's done" or "you're taking MY command". I am sick of you are hijacking every thread with your anti-mainline rhetoric, it is like bitching about management pay.

I’m not anti-mainline buddy, in fact I know a number of good guys there and I’m sure the majority of you are.

What I hate though, is the apparent arrogance displayed by a few when something doesn’t go their way, normally flying going to another airline within the group etc.

You work for the Qantas Group FFS. Your managers aren’t there to feather your nests and make it all nice and cosy and let you retire with $10m in Super, they’re there to make money for the group.

Good on you for going to JQ, if I worked there you probably wouldn’t have found that I’d be one of those 5%.

Ex QF A380 Captain recently checked out in command on the Alliance E-Jet. I wonder if the 'heros' on this forum will have the cojones to say to his face what has been said on this thread. I doubt it.

Well, for themselves, not so much for “the group”. History doesn’t paint most of the ex QF execs well at all.

Any word on who the new senior flight ops managers are?

I assume it will be one of the guys who set up the Embraer operation

From the ad :
  • Previous experience as a Fleet Standards Manager or Check Captain in a high capacity RPT airline

Cuts it down to very few possibilities. Ex VA,KA,EK,CX to name a few.


And
  • Tenacity, professionalism / maturity, sense of urgency, attention to detail, and confidentiality

Pretty much eliminates everyone on PPRuNe 🤪

I know of at least two ex managers from QF mainline who have applied. Both have extensive experience and are tertiary educated in relevant disciplines.

Spoke to the A380 Captain yesterday. No-one has said boo to him yet about him being in Alliance. Quite the opposite actually, he has been welcomed with open arms.

Good to see that moral courage only exists on an anonymous BBS. As I thought it would.

It is not just Alliance.

Perhaps VA & Gina, have something in common.

Executive Traveller has a good review and wrap-up of the QantasLink / Alliance E190 experience: https://www.executivetraveller.com/w...k-embraer-e190

REX annual results out today and surely it will be a train wreck. The Australian speculating Bain circling to pick up the PAG mess that was never ever going to fly. My money is on Alliance after their record earnings. Makes perfect sense - especially as a low cost capacity provider to VA - and they sure love buying stuff!!The big question among those who will be watching is whether its major shareholder, PAG, continues to support Rex and whether the National Party will also stand behind the national carrier.

Others wonder whether Bain Capital may swoop after last year acquiring Virgin Australia out of voluntary administration......

Bain already have an airline. I would think they would want to grow that one already. PAG May have to keep on keeping.

I heard $110k for FO, $160k for captain. Overtime starts at 55 hours per roster at $180/hr for FOs. Hiring type rated (and vaccinated) crew into Darwin, Townsville and Adelaide. Rumours persist of a Brisbane E jet base soon but being a popular base there'll be a wait for it. Third hand info, being a rumour forum.
