I have a feeling that might be it too. I was just reading an article this morning stating that ďFrom next month, Qantas will also outsource parts of its crew training to Dubai and Abu DhabiĒ which lines up with the others that have also stated that. Very interesting times ahead for sure!

Congrats! So exciting. The rumour mill is about International Cabin Crew training overseas e.g Dubai (Emirates Training Centre).

It was mentioned in post #119 above. Probably just for EP's but who knows. Their resources must be stretched thin.

I also read today that it could be partial training therefore not whole 8 weeks. See what they say in May

i found an article on Facebook which was an interesting read for those applying for international which I thought you may want to read. It says something about using New Zealand cabin crew for their long haul flights due to a pay dispute with the airline international union

That is interesting. It must be a logistical nightmare.

For context, the Australian union are refusing to let Aussie crew operate the A332 on 14+ hour flights due to the crew rest being inadequate (which it is). So Qantas have entirely outsourced BNE-LAX to offshore kiwi crew as they have not objected to working on it.

I got the same email. I donít understand what happened. I received an email saying thank you for completing security and references. I then go the email saying I was progressing to the pre-employment medical. And that received and email telling me I was unsuccessful before I could even do the medical. Iíve email but had no response. So gutted. I donít know how I can go from waiting for my medical to unsuccessful without anything happening

That's devastating Such a difficult process and proceeding through so many rounds already. Did you apply for International?

That is devastating. That makes no sense at all! Which base did you apply for?

Hi good luck everyone hope you all get the golden call soon.

I have been with QF over 20 years and have seen a lot of candidates over the years get made unsuccessful even after the medical stage. The final stage is executive review. QF cull at all stages. Only get excited when you get the letter of offer in writing and a QF staff number.

As with anything in aviation things change on a daily basis. Word on the street is they donít need as many International Cabin Crew as anticipated for BNE / MEL / SYD. Brisbane is no longer taking externals and limited in Melbourne and Sydney. QF are now currently hiring in LHR for QFCCUK and AKL for Jetconnect. Many MAM casuals have applied internally and will get priority as QF have a new casual pool through Altara for B737 and A330 short haul operations. A lot of the QF group cabin crew agreements that career progression clauses to mainline so a certain percent of ground Schools will have a number of spots filled internally usually.

All these changing factors are probably the reason of external candidates now receiving unsuccessful emails. It happens with in this industry. Keep positive and keep applying. I have flown with Cabin Crew who finally got in after 9 and 10 attempts. Hope this helps.

Anyone got the new email reminding them of the call in early may and getting your passport ďcurrentĒ while waiting?
