I have worked in two airlines where the executives thought that the solution to their problems was to bring in a Qantas pilot. I'm not meaning any disrespect as Qantas pilots in the culture of Qantas are very good at what they do. The problem occurs when you try and operate in a different culture to the one you have spent your entire career in. You can't just think that what has always worked in Qantas automatically translates into a new airline. Very few flight ops managers have the intellect to think outside the rigid boxes they have been used to and comfortable to be working in.

Remember Tiger pulling in QF Alumni when it was grounded? Was the first thing they did. They didn’t hang around long once the initial problems got sorted out, headed back to retirement. Kept the regulator happy during the process, made a whole heap of cash, and off they went.

Really should have been a internal candidate here. However you will need to wait for a post JH era for that. Hardly known for looking after existing employees at any gig she rocks up at, always brings her own in. And they leave with her also.
