Good on you all starting GS soon. So much information to absorb but take each day as it comes and you will be just fine! Keep smiling and the class mates will be friends for life.

Question: the reach test: 212cm, 2 hands it seems, bare feet, but can you stand on tip toes or is that a no-no?

TIA!!

If I remember it right, yes you can do tip toes and barefoot of course.

Hey guys,

I guess this is a post of me needing reassurance.. I believe in about 4 days time I would hit one year of my application - and I am worried that since itís hit the 12 months mark and Iím external, they would boot me off kind of thing? Is this a thing? The waiting is hard, but I am very hopeful seeing everyoneís ground school posts.

Many thanks and good wishes!

As for application being rejected purely because it was at the 12 month stage, it would seem unfair due to the protracted ( more than normal!) process. I don't have an answer but you could email TA and put it to them. Ask the question, it shows how keen you are! Good luck. Others may have a more insightful answer......

Hi highfly8,

Youíll be fine. Previous posters have said itís 12 months from your AD, not application date (although no one really knows for sure it seems).

Take comfort in the fact that last year, there were people who got their GC more than 12 months after their AD, so you definitely wonít just be ďbooted offĒ. Especially with things slowly ramping up and rumors that applications will re-open soon - it would make sense they exhaust their current hold pool especially those who have completed everything.

Hope this alleviates some of your concern. I understand itís very easy to overthink these things, I do it too! 😅

my application was terminated last year after a yearÖ I had only completed the online questionnaire though and never heard back apart from being asked if I was interested in syd assessment days. Then a couple of weeks after they terminated it, they readvertised for Melbourne. Now Iíve waited another 9 months to get to the questionnaire again.

For those who are joining make sure you have a pair of closed shoes which can get wet (trainers) submerged or water shoes (beach shoes) which are needed for the ditching part.
You will also wear your own bathers, but you have to wear an overall suit provided by Qantas over your swim attire.

Once you signed the contract, a few days after you get the roster for training plus online pre learning courses. Focus and pay attention to the Uniform video/pdf as what to wear with what and what is not allowed (need to know all capusls (outfits) not allowed to say male/female anymore. Also pay attention to the video/pdf of how the avionics and other (drag, lift, pressure) work of an aircraft. This will be examined the first few days of start of training. Perhaps you forget it, if you already do these online learnings 2 weeks prior of start of training.

Thanks Snakebite for the heads up about training!

Hey - just a question for those still waiting for an AD in Sydney (or anyone who wants to add something) - what are your thoughts about the most recent email from QANTAS about re-advertising for International Cabin Crew in Sydney for second language speakers only? Are there many people still waiting for an AD who does not speak a second language? Thanks

Re-advertise

I definitely need some support to lift me up, I had AD in Feb. I just feel so demoralised that they are recruiting again, the $300 for medical wasnít easy for me to come up with. I just feel so disrespected.

am I looking at this the wrong way?

hi ďsky1157Ē The new recruiting campaign is for language speakers and not for ďgeneralĒ crew. So essentially they are recruiting for crew to be crewed for specific routes. Itís okay to feel any way you want but it is a lengthy process. Iím internal and I have been waiting for 12 months. As annoying as it sounds you just have to play the waiting game. By the sounds of it they are starting to ramp up and will be going ahead full speed in the new year, so fingers crossed for you and the rest of us. Keep us updated 😉

im wondering if your address is other than Sydney yet GS is in SYD then what accommodation will they provide? Or do I need a crash pad to go through GS. Iíve been offered flying with another airline and have 10 plus years of flying from another Intíl airline. So Iím trying to check whatís the best thing to do

in my old USA airline you get to travel standby on your own metal once you graduate. But JS standby (jump seat) was free. Yet thatís what you sit on. A JS.

cabin seat wouldnít cost but it does here. Is that right? On your own metal?

If you applied for SYD base and QF training is in SYD than you have to take care of your own accommodation arrangements. The only time QF arranges your accommodation is when your training is out of the base you were hired. For instance: If your base is Melbourne (as per contract) but QF says that your training will be in SYD, QF will arrange accommodation in SYD in form of hotel.

BIDS

Good morning, this Q is for anyone currently at QF.
In terms of bids can you bid for trips that donít start at your home base. For example if you are Melbourne base can you bid for SFO, HNL, ICN etc.

Hi Koko90
If you are based in SYD all of your patterns (trips) start in SYD. There are patterns however where you pax to MEL to operate MEL/LAX or MEL/SIN, and same to BNE and PER. Crew also do port swaps from time to time and there is a transfer list. I hope this helps. x
