Dear Sparky77,
I am sorry about your experience. I am sure after all the positive steps your have progressed through, to get a negative outcome is hard.
Try again and try other airlines once you pick yourself up. The randomness of these things makes it harder to process.
I had knock backs when I tried decades ago. But then was accepted by two at around the same time. It makes no sense, but keep reminding yourself you have what it takes.

Good Afternoon everyone, long time poster here. I hope itís okay I go a different tack with my question. I currently work for another airline and I would like to make the move to QF long haul (SYD Base). Kicking myself slightly for not applying earlier given how heavy recruitment was at the beginning of the year but I was wondering if anyone knows if they will open up recruitment again next year potentially or if they are potentially looking to work through the backlog they currently have/predict a surplus in flying requirements?

I have my fingers crossed for next year but may have missed the boat this time.

Thanks all, and good luck to those who are still waiting!

I am so so sorry to hear that.

I reached with two hands however, I didnít reach it first time, and I think the assessor could tell I was worried about my height. She told me to relax, go closer to the wall and try again. I didnít reach it the second time either. She told the other assessor to come have a look and they asked me to go even closer to the wall (at this point my face was quite literally against the wall) and the other attendees were cheering me on on my third attempt because I was the shortest one there. I didnít look up when I reached because at that point I had thought I failed but I looked over at the assessor and she said it was fine and I had just touched it.

Hi!! I'm still waiting for the golden call for international like others (AD March 7) but in my physical medical I was asked to lift a number of weights. I don't remember the kg's but the heavier ones I didn't lift over my head but I just made sure that I attempted them all the correct way - bending knees. I assume if it was 50kgs over your head they are just assessing if you know how to lift correctly. They also assess you by push ups, sit ups, star jumps, a step test, an eyesight test, hearing test and height.

hope this helps!

I tried to post a question yesterday but may have not done it properly.
I have seen in various threads that at Bodycare medical check, people are asked to lift weights ranging from 26kg, 36kg and even 50kg. The randomness of the weights being asked to lift makes it hard to prepare!!
Any experiences appreciated.
For those who are finding the wait difficult, hang in there. It was the same back in my day too.
TIA

Unfortunately there is no info about when they open up for AD. There are a lot of people still waiting to get the call to start GS beginning of 2024. There are also 2 new destinations being reviewed which would mean more flights. But hey.. eventually at some point and date, they will open up for sure. You did not miss out.

Thank you all for kind words and support. I have now applied internally for QantasLink (as was recommended by the talent acquisition specialist who knocked me back) and will see how that goes.

There are some articles online but nothing official from Qantas:
https://www.bosshunting.com.au/trave...-paris-direct/
https://www.aerotelegraph.com/qantas...-ganz-genau-an
FRA, CDG

remember that FCO operating seasonal on QF

Also, I like to highlight that second language speaker will be flying majority routes where its required. That includes codeshare flights of other airlines for instance KLM flies to SIN and then with QF to Oz meaning that there could be a second language speaker of Dutch. That sector could be a business requirement for the airline to have a second language speaker meaning the majority of the roster would be that particular sector . Or for instance if you are are a second language speaker of Korean you will be flying to ICN as QF has a direct flight out of SYD.

Hey Wannabes, I've been flying around now since the middle of the year (long haul), loving it all and very thankful to be here. Hasn't been the easiest time for QF but our QF crew have an amazing work ethic and focus on customer service/striving for excellence and our customers can see that. The waiting game for you guys is a tough one, you'll get trained up soon enough but in the meantime I'd advise you to save as much $$ as you can for your 8-10 weeks of training, unless of course you get time in Abu Dhabi, the allowances are good for those 2 weeks, if not it's VERY basic pay. Rumours were floating around about more Long Haul Cabin Crew Recruitment opening up ad being advertised "at the end of the year" but that isn't confirmed. For upcoming training they'll continue to draw from the current holding pool. All the best guys and girls, if you have any questions I can help with just let me know.

are you able to provide a guideline of how much weekly pay is once youíre out on line flying? Just got the questionnaire interview email and considering if I can afford to go ahead with this.

basic is around fortnightly 1600 and you end up with something between 2000-3000 (with layover money) after tax. All depending on the flights you doing (what destination, how long the flight is, layover time)

I've just checked my ground school training pay slips, $1493/fortnight after tax. Out on line, and depending on how long your slips are and where, (GREAT tax free allowances for US ports and Hong Kong), you'll maybe average about $2500/fortnight after tax, this includes your tax free allowances.
