Alan Gets More Money

I see that at the AGM, Alan got some more big dollars. The reason was, if we don’t pay him, he will take his “ talent” to another airline.

I’m sure Qantas is FULL of talented people. Why do most of them have a pay freeze, while Alan gets more rewards for what has lately has been rubbish?

Could have put the 5 mill towards the repair of the broken aircraft seats and galley equipment on his premier aircraft.

How much would it cost to fly in experts from manufacturers to repair said broken equipment during turnaround at SYD, LAX or LHR.

I see Goyder has wheeled out the old ‘ we need to increase pay to maintain talent in a tight labour market’ line. Honestly there would be 1000’s of people in the world that could do that job and you only need one of them. So I’m not quite sure how tight that CEO market actually is.

I am sure Goyder could find an executive or two (or dozen) from the Wesfarmers pool.

That would actually be a preferred option, as then the rest of Alan’s clan would resign soon after before being forced out. Certainly is a business ripe for an executive clean out.

One of the most important jobs of the CEO is to groom a successor. If there’s nobody ready to do that (so Alan needs to be paid more to stay) then I’d say that’s an F. It’s important for organisations to refresh their leaders regularly. His holiday in Europe during a crisis and buying a 19 million dollar home during Covid might indicate why. Alan did a good job in his first several years. Now a different skill set is required.

You can't repair broken equipment without parts. Chances are the manufacturers do not have the expertise any longer to fix those first class seats. They should have spent Alan's bonus years ago and replaced them.

It's net zero for Qantas, the money he's saved not giving payrises would pay his bonus 100 times over, he's done a great job.

By their own admission, $4 Million = 0.1% increase for every staff member in the Qantas Group - The C-Suite is unashamedly eating everyone's lunch

Just look at how the airline runs over Xmas. Busiest time of the year. Not a manager in sight, no yoga classes or dog patting sessions and the place runs fine. So by that measurement we are way over managed and that starts at the top.

CEO needs to be outsourced like cleaning/maintenance/baggage handling. If it's better to outsource for cheaper services to make the airline competitive then why not the CEO? Do as I say don't do as I do....

Why are you posting stuff from that disgusting Vladimir Putin sycophant? Boikov is a cheerleader for Russia’s campaign of murder in Ukraine. When MH17 was shot down he traveled to occupied Ukraine to support the forces who downed it. He’s also an anti vax nutter, along with all the other conspiracies these far right nutters go along with. He’s truly a sick and demented individual. Any employee gripes with management have nothing to do with the propaganda that Putin lover is pushing.

If that clown came up to me on the street I’d be telling him to “f**k off” too.

Agree 100%.

I hope the lady is ready for the body search during transit in Doha.

Why? Because they both deserve the lack of respect.

That would have the advantage that if someone who is a competent CEO came in but didn't know the business, they would be forced to promote talent from within, a la, people who actually know about running an airline!!

Me too and if he didn't, I might just give him a fat lip to go on with.
