That job "flying rubber dog*#$#" out of Hong Kong is starting to look good now! :{

A sad sad day for what once was a great Aussie institution.

Leigh Clifford said Mr Joyce was an outstanding executive with wide experience in all facets of the airline industry.

He can start by displaying his flying skills then show us how to inspect an oxygen bottle.

OMG, what has Clifford done?:{

More of The Same
Joyce is a dixon clone...short, angry,dysfunctional.
At 42 years old he is going to be around for quite awhile.
Just when you think things at Qantas couldnt get any worse..this happens.
VR is being touted for November....definitely time to go.
Give it 6 months and Qantas will have a new name and livery.

It was a perfect time to bring together the organisation. Appoint someone to be force forgood. As the storm clouds gather bringing the staff together would be a good way to face the oncoming challenges. Instead they continue the direction of divide and conquer ably assisted by a short camp wannabe pilot who didn't make the grade...

Sad really

Every Mainline pilot is a dead man or woman walking.

The JQ guys must be wtting themselves laughing at the opportunities this now presents to them - A380, B747-400 - all on 50% less.

The skys the limit

Can you all shut up

This is great, Go Joyce

Islander Jock 28th Jul 2008 00:25

He is not very popular in some airport management circles either.

Flyer 18-737
What are you?.....a relative.
Or has there been a laying on of hands?

Transition Layer 28th Jul 2008 00:34

I'm pretty sure Flyer_18-737 is "Aircraft" reincarnated...

Dear gloom and doomers,
  • Your new CEO has opened up new routes for the Qantas Group for the first time in recent memory
  • Helped persuade the Board to buy 787's when previous management had missed the entire 777 era
  • Fended off low-cost competition and bought a whole new market segment and it's revenue onto Qantas Group premises and airplane
  • etcetera
His height and accent are only relevant to this topic as insofar as they are the catalyst to show the venom and insularity that inhabits a few small corners of the mainline world.

For those of you who want a good future in JQ and QF and hence rely on an injection of drive and purpose at the very top, this is a great day. Those who prefer to see the downside, even of a win in Lotto....get lives now. This is not a rehearsal.

Suitable Applicants
The appointment of Alan Joyce as the CEO of Qantas is an indication that there was a distinct shortage of suitable applicants.

Qantas 787 28th Jul 2008 00:37

I think it is a good choice. I have a lot of time for Joyce - I think some f you need to talk a cold shower and cool down.

I am just happy Gregg was not the choice- it would have been a disaster if he got the job. JB wouldn't be happy - this was his chance so I wonder if both will be trying to get jobs elsewhere.

arkmark 28th Jul 2008 00:42

Boy this makes things look good for Virgin.

As Qantas inevitabely adopts the Low Value Carrier model, all Virgin has to do is have the flexability to move to appeal to the market that QF will inevitabely leave behind.

The LVC model was fine in it's day but it's getting old now.

For all you boys and girls at Qantas this is a sad day.

You might recall that Jet Star's web site used to pay homage to Impulse and it's culture. The minute Joyce began his reign over impulse, he squashed the culture with total disregard for those who had worked so hard for so long to keep the place running through the hardest of times.

This is what you have to look forward to and there is no use fighting it.

As a passenger, my opes are that I will still have some sort of choice in the future not to have o fly the low value model.

Weather report Just In for November 28th 2008
FOG, lot's of FOG, Glorious FOG!!!! :}

Muff Hunter 28th Jul 2008 01:01

To all our brothers at QF...welcome tho the world of the LCC..:sad:

He will not stop until he has driven the T&C's of every pilot in this country into the gutter...

This will be an interesting next couple of years..

The Professor 28th Jul 2008 01:08

Joyce has proven himself to be able to ballance the demands of the business with strict cost control while growing jetstar substantially. He is viewed within the industry as being extremely capable and like Walsh at BA, is being bought in to wield a cost cutting axe with a sharp edge.

Dixon was not as effective at cost cutting as Joyce will be.

DutchRoll 28th Jul 2008 01:14

Future Wikipedia entry?


Qantas, originally an abbreviation for "Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Services", was the largest Australian airline from its small beginnings in 1920 until its breakup and demise in 2010.........

Hey Prof, does that praise for Joyce's abilities include Jetstar flying half empty aeroplanes on its international routes, or cooking the books to hide the cost-shifting to its parent company?
