Fair point. Any idea when -RQG is due back?

I think two things are at play here, one is cheap lease 737 availability and crewing. That's holding back any major ramp up in scheduling. The air travel world recovered from Covid way faster than anyone could predict and the carnage many said would happen in airlines going broke just didn't happen and therefore there's the opposite of a glut in airliners available. VA is just lucky they were able to get most of their fleet back before Rex snaffled them up, otherwise they would have been up the creek with no boats to paddle. This is going to affect Bonza as well significantly, I've heard lease rates on the available Max fleet has tripled in a few months, now not far off $1mil per month.

The big bottle neck is heavy maintenance. Most available airframes have been in storage for 2+ years and are out of "C" check, so there's a backlog world wide.

Rex deputy chairman John Sharp said in a statement “Rex, on the other hand, has offered its SAAB pilots a 5.1 per cent pay rise from 1 July 2022, plus significant catch-up payments worth another 8 per cent once the business is profitable again.”

Is that a 5.1% rise from 2018 rates followed by a catch up payments when they deem themselves profitable which will be so far into the future that most current pilots will have left the company?

That's not the deal, a Rex pilot showed me what they have agreed and that's apparently what the company offered pre-PIA.

Looks like a bit of a shitshow of a day for Rex jet today. -RQG in for a "C" check and -RQP off the line for some reason. Cancellations all over the shop including the sole SYD-OOL and return flights of the day.

Well that's disappointing.

I meant the 5.1% + 8% is the pre PIA figure that the company had offered. What the pilots have voted in is much better, which is a compromise with extra days off and future CPI increases. Probably worth over 10% up front and then CPI adjustments for a number of years. Also some backpay in installments.

Okay then sorry.
10% is still below CPI since 2018. They could have done a lot better. The company is very limited on crew currently. So much so I heard that whole bases could be wiped out in within weeks if Jetstar and Qantas take them.

I guess that makes sense why they are running a lot of routes via triangles at the moment. Seen Armidale go via Port, Dubbo via Parkes etc.

Shitshow yesterday, worse today. Now looks like -PAG has joined -RQP and is also not flying. No SYD-OOL-SYD service yesterday, no MEL-CBR-MEL service today.

I'm guessing nobody asked Sharpie about his 117 percent annual total remuneration rise between FY21 and FY22. His total remuneration is now up by nearly 190 percent from pre-pandemic levels.

Rex have updated their profit guidance, only days after Qantas. Jets on track for profit while Saab operation is still loss making. They must have a good accountant!

If the Saabs aren't making money right now they will never make money again.

EBITDAR really means profit before we have paid all of our outstanding bills. Meaningless creativity.
