Qantas has used indigenous art extensively on aircraft livery since the 1990s - maybe they feel a justifiable sense of obligation to support First nations people?

Its even more basic than that. Most customers and staff just want to be treated as though you matter to the airline and not a drag on the bottom line.

What about those aboriginal people that want to vote no?

Is he really “retiring” or is it a choice of words to spin/soften the whole 15 year debacle?

If she can knock out some quick-fire EBAs with good improvements to win back staff, re-employ the QF ground handlers, remove political aircraft stickers and agendas from the airline, improve the customer experience, fix the busted aircraft and order lots more new ones … she may just have a chance at succeeding.
What does she do after lunch?

Sorry guys. Your sentiments will matter little to the greasy goblin, he’s walking away with a $5 million bonus and laughing his head off at us.

Does Albo’s kid still retain CC membership?

I doubt that will happen. Removing the stickers will be implied support for the No campaign, irrespective of any company announcements as to why, and they don't need the PR fire that will bring from the looney fringe right now.

Are they really though? As much as I disagree with it, it's only on 3 aircraft running wildly disparate routes.

By First Nations you mean aboriginal I’m guessing? Just because I’m voting no does not mean I don’t support or dislike aboriginal people. But, this is not the forum to discuss that.

Ahhhh Geoffrey Thomas. I hate to tell you but the Qantas share price was $4.85 in January 2008, not long before Alan Joyce took the CEO reigns.
It did plummet to just on $1 but that was after Alan took control. A cynic would suggest (and many did at the time) that his long term bonus shares would vest nicely based on his allocation at the floor price during that period.

Open letter to Ms Hundson

Dear Ms Hudson,

Don’t fvck it up!

You have taken the reigns at the lowest safe altitude for Qantas. You MUST climb! If you continue this trajectory, YOU will be at the helm when we hit the deck. Read that again and let it sink in!

Good luck,

Long suffering travellers and Qantas staff

You’re all kidding yourselves if you think he’s gone. Seeing his mum and an Antarctic cruise?- Just a short vacation. He isn’t going to b#gger off to a Caribbean island or anything else- he’ll still be a presence in aviation. But where?

Some practical possibilities first:
CEO of British Airways perhaps? God knows they need the help. Sean Doyle, watch your backside.
Or taking it up another level- IAG? Luis Gallego is doing a decent job but you never know.
Or even higher- a position with IATA? Willie Walsh may need to watch out.

Some unlikely thoughts:
Aer Lingus. This is where he came from and he may ache to go back- but really it’s a small fish. But, then again, a lunch with Michael O’Leary could always change the game.
Any Middle East Airline- the traditional “next stop” of airline CEO’s. For obvious personal reasons, no chance.
Cathay Pacific. A basket case and getting worse. But the Chinese hate Swire and are doing their damndest to ruin the place so Ronald Lam may face competition.
Virgin Australia. Jane Hrdlicka seems secure but Bain capital? Now there is a position he might like!

Of course there could always be:
Bonza. With his capital he could probably BUY the outfit outright. Tim Jordan be on guard.
Beond. A flight of fancy but maybe a safe haven for his money.
Rex. Now here’s a thing- Rex. A call to Lim Kim Hai in Singapore could find John Sharp rueing his past comments on Qantas.

Or, shudder, a board position with CASA?

Any suggestions

How about a gaol cell in Long Bay for insider trading?

Doesn’t he know that slinking out the back door is no guarantee that the law doesn’t apply to him? Especially now he’s persona non grata in Canberra. His hubris has blinded him to two things: 1) The hatred he has earned from the entire Australian population, and. 2) The fickle nature of his friends in Canberra.

I am sure he will sleep soundly with the $100 million plus he has taken in wages, bonuses and shares. I have never worked for someone who so openly sees his highly skilled people as a total drag on the company and sees them as a cost cutting area where his bottom line can be improved.
