Reasonable….and what would that be for you sir? Long time QF pilot it might not be up your ally.

Two years base pay would do very nicely-thats NB base pay. It depends entirely on your situation and your expectations.

I was there for 30+ yrs & when CR was offered i didnt have to think twice,of course there are many that it wouldnt suit & each to their own.
When i heard about the alliance deal,1 of the things i mentioned was that its been no secret for a while now that some 738s(mostly the newer series) were on expensive leases that didnt have long to go & for me it wasnt hard to see the e jets replacing those hi cost 738s which of course eliminated hi cost crews.
Obviously the e jets dont carry the same amount of pax but if the demand is there qf will just tell alliance to put another service on & of course they wont argue & neither will the crews as they know there are plenty of pilots out there just waiting for a call & a seat on the flight deck.

JQ is awesome great pilots great cabin crew great C&T department I love it. I misunderstood you expecting a call up for an exceptional offer for you join. When times are busy you do work your a$$ off which is bearable because of points 1 & 2.

Qantas to mandate vaccines for frontline staff by November

By Nick Bonyhady
Qantas has announced it will require its frontline staff to be fully vaccinated against coronavirus by November, joining SPC as the second major Australian company to commit to the move.

In a statement, the company said its decision to mandate had been backed by a staff survey showing an overwhelming majority of its workforce either were vaccinated or planned to be and many supported mandatory jabs.



“One crew member can fly into multiple cities and come into contact with thousands of people in a single day,” said Qantas chief executive Alan Joyce.

“Making sure they are vaccinated given the potential of this virus to spread is so important and I think it’s the kind of safety leadership people would expect from us.”

By AJ’s own admission flying now carries much more risk especially for international crew. Sounds like remuneration will need to increase dramatically to compensate for the increased risk.
As for mandatory vaccination. I am very interested to know how blood clots on the lungs would impact on a pilot medical as it is one of the questions asked in the annual pilot medical questionnaire. Is Allan going to meet the cost of loss of licence insurance.

If you lose your licence, you will be redeployed as Alan’s cabin boy.

What happened to the mantra "it's very unlikely you would be infected in an aircraft" at the beginning of the pandemic.

Have you not been reading the news? There are variants with far high transmissibility that were not around at the beginning of the pandemic.

It was always spurious to claim transmission on an aircraft was impossible anyway.
