Sorry guys..but...

Yes, I have actually seen the contract.....the phrase from the INDIVIDUAL CONTRACT (NOT an EBA) is;

"V Australia may elect to provide you with actual meals in lieu of this allowance."

As I said, you may only be paid your base salary.

Another interesting clause states that your personal/carers leave is 10 (yes, TEN!!) days - and NO URTI days.

Think very carefully.

Medicals

Hey guys,

I just got the phone call as well telling me to undertake my medicals. However i live in Adelaide and have noticed that there is not a medical centre listed for Adelaide. They are all in mel, syd or Qld. Has anyone else encountered this problem?? I am hoping i don't have to fly to melbourne just to undertake my medicals.....

Hey... I would just give them a call to see what they can do. Did you attend the VRD in Melbourne? I would say if you did, you will have to come back and do it.

meds

No i attended the VRD in Sydney. I don't have a contact number for them. I emailed them but sometimes there can be quite a delay in their responses and i am supposed to undertake it in the next ten days. It is going to be really expensive if i have to fly interstate just to do the meds....

got the call too!

sapolski: Definately give them a call. I did my interview in Dubai, and was living in London at the time of application, and they said that I would be able to do my medical in London if needed.

Maybe you could try calling the medical centre in Sydney and see if they have an office in SA. The phone number for V Australia should be at the bottom of your email re the medical....

Congrats on getting the call! Yes it looks like we might all start on 1 October ground school! How exciting! The Medical is easy..... they measure your height, test your eyes for colour blindness and sight (If you can read up to 1 metre) make sure you have no drugs in your system and weigh you.... it takes about an hour and is 2 parts. I had mine at IMMEX ( I think that is what it is called) at Green Square near the airport in Sydney. They say they will send the results via email same day to V Australia.....
I have not heard anything else yet... but I am confident they will get back to me in the next few weeks. Feeling very relaxed about the whole thing now!

Good luck to everyone!

nothing is impossible.... 43 is still young! A friend of mine got to VRD and the afternoon interview and she is almost 50.
Good luck

Virgin Blue's V Australia on track for take-off - News - Travel - smh.com.au

Virgin Blue said today it was "continuing its steady march towards its scheduled December 15 take-off" with the first group of cabin crew trainers being put through their paces today.
The 11 cabin crew trainers and development managers are demonstrating V Australia's cabin crew training course to the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) to gain certification to begin training the first group of new cabin crew recruits.
The first cabin crew training course will begin on September 1 with 26 new recruits who, once trained and certified, will be the launch crew for V Australia.

Trolley Dolly (May VRD)
Chicken or Fish (May VRD)
Dixons-son (April VRD - Mate!)

Lets hope we are all at the same Ground School....
Anyone else hear about a Ground School Date? I'm guessing October?
