Yes, that rant may not age well when you see what the health experts say. Having said that, Gladys asked for it by taking the same position in June. But perhaps we leave to the epidemiologists?

Pfizer jabs should go to where they are best utiilised

IF…the NSW objective was to get numbers of infectious in the community down to zero, then McClown is correct. But NSW people have had hot air blown up them for months so getting a Vic style lockdown was always going to be impossible. Follow the epidemiologists? Worldwide they say essentially the same thing…they have for months and months…but that’s not want people want to hear because mask wearing infringes their personal f#cking rights…or it’s just like the flu…or I’m losing my house.

The politics of COVID has f#cked NSW and why more people in our industry aren’t infuriated with the half arse response is beyond me. Instead it appears some people on PPRuNe have more in common with the ‘Freedom’ protesters…enabled by idiotic politicians and sky news dinosaurs

Time for a lie down.

The take-off performance chart limit is 47C.

The battery temp limit was 57C, where above is only approved for GPU start. Above 71C batt temp no start at all.

They moved from Ni-Cad to lead acid batteries a few years ago. Those limits no longer apply with the now lead acid installation as there is no thermal runway risk.

Thats the problem with employing disgraced politicians - eventually they run out of other peoples money.

Thank you for those clarifications.

​​​​​​​Just by the bye, the Dash-8s and ATRs would have to have similar temperature limits wouldn't they?

“The ignition system overheats in the hot conditions and they’re often stuck on the tarmac for half an hour, waiting for the battery to cool down.”. - Is that really an issue with the 340s?
It’s like “ Deja vu”, back in about 2002 maybe, I was flying “Big Hat Bob” around NW QLD and Gulf country and he was spouting the virtues of Saab 340’s in the outback versus the J32. He has a long standing relationship with one of the SkyTrans directors.

Last month Rex had this, let's just call it 'optimistic', schedule for ex-BNE

ZL209 MEL 0520
ZL309 SYD 0930
ZL227 MEL 1020
ZL329 SYD 1130
ZL339 SYD 1430
ZL239 MEL 1540
ZL349 SYD 1630
ZL267 MEL 1720
ZL367 SYD 1830
ZL387 SYD 1930
ZL291 MEL 2050

It was meant to start the WC 23 August.

They have now just slid that entire schedule to the right by another month to notionally start WC 20 September.


Darryl Kerrigan would probably have a view on this.

Much the same as

“Oh look, it’s John “I’ve only whinged a few times every month this year, but now I’m back with another negative press release about how hard done by Rex are and how much we hate Qantas”

Mr Fred Prickett will be leading the Clayton Utz litigation team, joined by Rex’s other competition advisors Ms Rachel Trindade and former Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) Commissioner Dr Rhonda Smith. Rex’s legal team will explore all legal avenues to stop Qantas from abusing its market position in order to push its competitors out.

What exactly do they want? Qantas you may not increase your schedule for the upcoming school holidays because Rex needs to make money.

Jetstar how dare you put 787s on domestic keep them parked up in the sand burning cash and keeping your employees grounded.

Virgin you cannot put your MAX10 into Sydney as your taking away our passengers and diluting our margins. Fark sake.
