The whole industry in Australia would have been unimaginable pre-1989.

So what's the deal with the 30 or so pilots from Mainline and J* now employed by Network on 18 month contracts?
Apparently, they're still receiving Jobkeeper as well.

You might want to have a good read of exactly how Jobkeeper works if you are questioning what's going on.

The deal is they responded to an FSO for LWOP opportunities in Network. They obviously were successful and are now working for Network on the Network EBA. After 18 months they either go back to their respective airlines or stay with Network.

Network is going to be royally in strife in 18 months when everyone goes back to their real jobs.

The smart thing to do would have been offer the Cobham pilots that are being booted from Perth jobs at Network. Being long term Perth residents, many of these blokes will be returning to Perth when pilot job opportunities improve anyway.

The base closure announcement was made in August so the 717 pilots would have been ready to go by now. Now QF are just left with a whole bunch of crew departing NJS as they were not willing to leave Perth or pi55ed off with the company which will hurt at EA Negotiation time.

Iíve heard there are Network crew in Singapore right now doing their type rating on the bus as it was easier to find temporary replacement Fokker crew.

So many random thoughts, so little knowledge.

Canít be sure, but that rumour could have started after an Instagram post that described mainline crew kicking a Network pilot and calling him a scab for wearing his jacket or some such....that was just a story, however distasteful.

I doubt it. Thereís some mainline pilots who wear jackets on colder mornings, even in summer, so I doubt it.

Iím sure plenty of mainline pilots have walked to and from the carpark alongside Network pilots and have never had anything but a friendly chat, so again circumstantial evidence leads me to believe this situation didnít happen or was blown out of proportion.

And also leaving out the fact that plenty of NA and mainline pilots are mates outside of work, and plenty have worked in both companies and still have mates in both companies, any notion of a widespread conflict between both groups is false. Anyone trying to stoke tensions should stop.

Dude, you can't really throw a comment like 'So many petulant child like posts....' into the room and expect to be revered as Jesus the almighty thread saviour.
Likewise, 'No wonder the industry is in chaos...... is such a shitty thing to say, like you're the chosen mediator of all that is good and righteous.
'Shameful'...seriously? Is your comment is in any way helpful or enlightening?
