If the ACCC allows this one through, you can bet your bottom dollar (pun intended) that Alliance will be hit with the same strategic imperatives so desperately sought from the other business units by Qantas. In short the deal they are on now will inevitably get much worse.

And could you suggest who else would have had the capability to do the tasks.
The guys operating the ex-Jetgo EMB145ís from Essendon ( canít remember the operatorís name) might have been able to.

And have done the same for the last couple of Federal elections if I recall.

There have also been Bizjet's and KingAir's flying around under the "ENVOY" callsign of late.

Do these EASA ATPL holders have to complete all the CASA ATPL syllabus and then an ATPL flight test? Seems only fair as that’s the requirement going the other way.

They may not hold EASA licences since brexit. But either way, I don’t think you can fly VH aircraft here without a CASA licence.

If those contractors have to pay the FBT on the accomodation they will be working for $4000/month net. So, one school fee and 120 instant noodles.

Sick days ? I suspect a mass exodus will begin to unfold all thanks to Nigeís email making its way into the public domain.

So is “Nigel’s email” the one from the recruitment agency offering positions with Alliance or an internal Alliance email that has “ made its way in to the public domain” but not here on PPRuNe?
The Townsville Refueller tells me that employment of the recruitment agency has been denied.

It might well be the cause of the lack of pilots. Apparently she ran off with the HR laptop (again). They no longer know who's applied or been interviewed.

For what purpose? It was certainly an explored option.

Maybe they should stop looking for bigger sticks and find other ways to stem the tide of resignations.
