Some dope on another board started the rumour that ACMI isn't allowed. It is allowed and has plenty of precedent in exceptional circumstances, which these surely count as. I gather there are a host of good quality airlines with capacity on the back of reduced demand between Europe and Asia due to Ukraine.

JetDream are you meaning past/current employees or externals? If the former, I know of several that are on courses at the moment. Externals-I have not heard a thing. I think the company is still going through the current/past employee list. Not sure why they put out an EOI in that case.

Thanks for the info HB.
I was referring to the external EOI but understand they still have a lot of guys/girls to return.

You're correct, multiple precedents, QF wet leasing aeroplanes back in the 80s/90s, AN wet-leasing 747s from SQ to cover maintenance of their leased and self-operated 747-412s (and the -312s before them).

What isn't allowed from what I understood is what VA did with TT, worse yet, they were warned and warned and eventually got the rights cancelled (although I think that was instigated by the Indonesian side).

Honesty I would rather cut of my left nut and right ring finger than to work for these clowns again. Checking department think they are the Ducks Nuts, Accountains just flat out lie, Managment are toxic as F. Do youself a favour look else where or re think career options. Lifes is very short and VA is as Toxic. IMO.

The toxic culture at VA existed LONG before the current management took over post-Administration.

Jeeze

you guys certainly have some decent inside ‘agents’………..
no need for 737 SO’s, run out of fuel before they are needed. Why would anyone pax from where-ever to CNS and then on to HND on a narrow body, apart from a $50 fare to entice people who dont know any better.

I'd assume primarily to retain possession of the landing rights, an "asset" no doubt in any future flogging off of VA to an adoring and financially astute public.
