Hi Folks

Can anyone tell me, black and white, Jetstar International terms and conditions? Specifically:

1) Cabin Crew and Cabin Manager salaries
2) How allowances are paid (eg cash/voucher/credit card)
3) Is it true Cabin Crew share rooms downroute, and CM's get their own?
4) Is it true JQI crew get rostered day's off downroute (as opposed to days free of duty downroute that do not come out of your RDO allocation)
5) Average layover time compared to sector length?
6) Is there inflight crew rest, and is it horizontal rest or taken in a cabin seat?
7) Is it true that overnight allowances are paid at a fixed rate of AUD$80 per night?

These are all rumours I have heard in the past year or so...

I have searched the JQ wannabe's forums and couldn't find this info - so if someone could point me in the right direction, or answer the questions, I would be most appreciative... thanks! I would be especially appreciative if someone was able to point me in the direction of the JQI AWA... I can't find it anywhere unfortunately

Thanks!

(PS I am interested purely because I want to compare JQI to the soon-to-be-announced conditions for V Australia... thanks! )

Hi Sinala,

Not sure I can help with all your questions.. but ill give it a shot!

Im not sure of the CM salary but CC is $33,500 base plus allowences on top of that.

Alowences are paid into your pay, however they are paid in arrears, so you will recieve your allowences in the following months pay.

CC do not have to share rooms whilst away.

Minimal inflight rest with JQi flights.

There is no fixed overnight allowence, it depends on your destination and the cost of living.. it averages out to be roughly $90-$100 p/n.

This is the information we were given in the assessment days a few weeks ago, therefore this is all Team Jetstar based.
Hope it helps!

Staff Travel

Hi Guys,
I too heard that staff travel conditions would change for all Team Jetstar employees.. and that it would be a case of it being up to your supervisors discretion and would be on JQ flights only and only for yourself.

A friend of mine has just finished GS and was the last Jetstar GS to go thru, he was informed that this was not the case for the new Team Jetstar crew.
Another friend of mine started mid Decemeber as the very first Team Jetstar crew and she too was told that the above was not the case.

Im hoping that these rumours stemmed from the conditions of MAM crew for Qantas..

Fingers crossed staff travel arrangements stay them same for Team Jetstar crew!

just confirming that i heard that too - JQ staff travel only (not QF) and only at managers discretion. which means you would prob get it - but if you have major problems with your base manager (behaviour etc) you will lose it.
Can anyone who has received an actual contract please confirm this?

Team Jetstar-Recruitment

Team Jetstar are recruiting for Darwin Base now. Has anybody got any idea of what sort of flying they might be doing? I did read some time ago an article on Jetstar flying from Darwin to other part of Asia eg Singapore Hong Kong etc. I wonder how this will effect existing long haul crew? The article mentioned that Darwin would be a "sprinboard" for asia flights. Would that mean the Mel crew would do a Mel to Drw return and the Drw crew would do a Drw to Sin/HKG or Bkk return with no overnights? Any comment? Interesting times ahead!

Thats not entirely correct pattystacker..

Domestic are still primarily domestic and LH are primarily LH.
Jetstar employees are requried to resign and reapply for the other section if they wanted to swap.
Team Jetstar employees are told from day dot that in some circumstances they may be required to complete SH if they are LH CC and vice verca.
It also means that when cross crewing needs to happen team jetstar LH CC can work the first sector rather than being pax'd! and SH CC can completed LH sectors

I checked back on the Jetstar website under the jobs open for application and it says on there under the "Then we can offer you" heading that 'Generous travel benefits giving you the opportunity to fly away on your days off', so if that is what they are advertising and everyone is applying for then I would imagine staff travel exists even for 'Team Jetstar' crew? I know if I applied thinking that was one of the benefits and got to ground school and told there wasn't any I'd be a bit dissappointed to say the least.

Yeah, we will be receiving Staff Travel once our 6-month probation period is over and we've been told that it will be applicable for any flight with a QF or JQ flight number. And it's still the Category A and Category B system with ID90/ID50 rate. So we can have the travel companion or parents on Staff Travel, etc.

What I'm not 100% sure about, but I'm pretty sure my manager said this as well, was that this QF/JQ flight number rule includes where a QF flight number appears as a codeshare on another operating airline's flight, ie. QF codeshare on BA or AA.

well for now.... When they started LH or Widebody as it was known and and narrowbody for the 320 it was 2 separte companies.

Jump forward 3-4 years and you will see redundancies for JQ airways employees or sign up wit Team Jetstar .... In either case I will take my trousers off so they can screw me even better
