The only people the Q group treat worse than their passengers are their staff. No respect at all. The least they could do is offer a seniority number to internals when they get the job. There is so much hatred within the group by the staff and rubbish like this is just another pineapple inserted.
This comment is incredibly accurate. Good luck to any internals wishing to go to QF.
youíll be held for years while externals get seniority above you. Good luck making a captain at QF if youíre over 30 and get hired fiiiinally in three years time. Yeah, some internals, covid aside, waited two to three years.

Subsids like network will trickle one per month at best, if they have their own pilot bases filling, which they donít and wonít any time soon, just to dangle that carrot in front of you.

Just jump to VA or USA. At least they have negotiations. Not ultimatums.
