Assuming 3 of these are overnighting, not a great start to the week tomorrow for the punters.
Clearly they may not be aircraft related, but it certainly doesn't support Mr Hansfords claims of needing newer aircraft to remain competitive.
Qlink also chartered Rex (well, Pelair) to run a WHA return from ADL on the same day.

So the Chair…

‘We will shut down your bases and your spitting in my face’

Deputy Chair…

‘We are going to rip away all those pesky entitlements those 737 pilots have built up over the years, 10% below Jetstar!’

I can’t say I’ve seen such behaviour from a management team, well ever, from anywhere. I’ve seen some pretty clueless management teams, however this is just utter bull****.

EBA negotiations and alleged threats are an IR concern, not the purvey of the Safety Regulator

Yeah, because a heavily disengaged and distracted flight crew doesn’t have the potential to create a threat to safety…

Partly true. Yes, there is a potential I.R issue here, but any management action that places a workforce under duress or unnecesssary stress
is contributing to a potentially unsafe work environment. Obviously CASA doesn’t have the balls to address such an issue, but it’s something that should be noted.

Yes I agree entirely, but until there are stressed pilots, distracted pilots, or mentally breaking down pilots, and until there are incidents "directly" attributed to Kim Hai's
approach and the stressful effects it has on the pilots, it is not a CASA issue. It's IR until the effects create consequences. But even then, what will CASA do? SFA I suspect.

I know many Rex Jet pilots would love to see this for their current negotiations.(If you can call them that.)

May i please?

Is “purvey” a new HR buzzword?

Of course not LB, it’s when you ask a random sample of cats questions on a topic under discussion.

The correct word would have been the noun purview, not the verb purvey.

Of course. Like ‘pay purview’ on the internet.

An old cliche comes to mind.

Something about the self removal of a proboscis?

With major sporting events in Melbourne (boxing) and Sydney (state of origin) this week, the incumbents have very high loads. Is Rex still flying around with dismal loads? Their fares suggest that they are. If they can’t generate bums on seats now, then when can they?

Pretty sure the load factors are directly related to no one outside of aviation knowing they exist. I haven't seen/heard a single add on the TV or radio or anything, is there any advertising?

Probably not. After introducing their jet fleet, Rex's expenditure on advertising fell by nearly 25 percent. They may have thought having Sharpie spruiking their flights on The Today Show and the like was all that was needed. Or they thought that the Saab punters and their friends and families would all start lining up to catch Rex jets. A case study in how not to attack a new market segment.

purvey
/pəˈveɪ/

verb
FORMAL
  1. provide or supply (food, drink, or other goods) as one's business.
    "shops purveying cooked food"
So, in this case, "provide or supply aviation regulation and oversight as one's business."
