Exactly! Imagine AJ was this progressive with industrial relations!

This isn’t the first time QF has painted an aircraft with a message of constitution recognition of indigenous people. Happened in 2014 on a Q400 and it didn’t receive nearly any negative reaction back them:

Doesn't matter if you are for or against, Qantas should not be getting involved in politics that have absolutely nothing to do with operating an Airline. As for his statement, "We are the oldest continuous operating Airline in the World." That's just an outright lie, or did I miss a news statement that KLM has ceased operating. I hope KLM sues him personally. The sooner he leaves Qantas, the sooner it may be able to get back to being a great Airline that it was in the 70's when I worked for them and was proud to wear the uniform. It will be interesting to see how many people his latest 'mistaken idea' will be driven away from Qantas. Paul

KLM did not operate during WW2. That’s why he said… Continuous Operating Airline.

And he should stay out of politics

Just loves to poke his nose into things that shouldnt concern him, like somebody else pointed out he should concentrate on running the airline & keep his big mouth shut.

You could argue Qantas hasn’t been operating continuously for that long either, courtesy of Alan’s little tantrum in 2011.

AJ himself shut the airline down to prove he is the best. Does that interrupt the “continuous” bit?

They said the same thing in 2017 about QF’s support of same sex marriage, QF then had 3 consecutive years of billion dollar profits.

Vote No. Unless you want to see us as a country go back to the 1950's being divided and you're hip pocket to get much smaller. Just a another gravy train for inner city ones claiming to be marginalised gaining off Australian tax payers via a blank cheque.

This QF stunt will only help the No surely.

I agree. Shameful; behavior from a CEO. I am no longer an ambassador for the Airline I once flew for. Stick with running an airline not this crap.

Remember when Joyce marginalised Non Vaccinated people during Covid 19 , he's doing the same for the Non Aboriginals .

I hope VA have a lot of excess capacity,they are going to need it.These virtue signalling inner city elites have no idea how the ethos of the REAL Australians works.We do not like having anything forced down our throats.Especially how to vote.This could be Qantas’ Bud Light moment.

I looked into my porridge this morning and Alan Joyce was looking back at me, I looked into my cup or tea and Alan Joyce was looking back at me, I went to the toilet and looked into the bowl and Alan Joyce was looking back at me, and so on for the rest of the day. He is everywhere in my life! But his job is to run an airline! How can he be so pervasive in my life when his job is to run an airline? Don’t worry, although I cannot erase him from my life I have my own form of revenge. For ten years all overseas flights on Singapore Airlines. All domestic flights on Virgin Australia. You may be invading my conscious mind, but I am trying to make sure you do not profit from your invasive, intrusive, and egotistical views on my personal thoughts. I am sure like a number of retired politicians you will continue to promote your personal narrative once you retire from Qantas but from my perspective I will continue to see you in my toilet bowl and decide whether it is number one or two which you will be receiving on each occasion!

What’s even more concerning is how the thought police (HR) in Qantas will ensure that any internal debate on this matter is squashed. How this mob controls all facets of recruitment to propaganda and social media under Joyce is ruining the culture within Qantas. They over step often outside the bounds of law. Company speak social commentary bullying entangled in capitalist hypocrisy. Does Alan have his eye on a political future. His ego won’t allow him to ride off into the sunset never to be heard of again.

Pretty funny waisting time on this ****e while half the Pilots in the group are about to start industrial action after having their pay and conditions torn to shreds by QF IR. They are starting to look like the people having a fancy dinner on the Titanic while someone is yelling "iceberg dead ahead" in the background.

Check out the latest ad for Virgin Atlantic. Can’t “go woke, go broke” as they don’t make any money anyway.
