46 pax sectors over two months is 23 return flights - or one every three days.

50 cargo sectors is probably 15 return flights ex HKG as so many operate via the frozen north - or one every four days.

One of the overnight flights from BNE was delayed about 12 hours a few days ago.

The Aussies can't be doing CC, so it must be down to crew shortages, right?

They've been rostering the Aussie guys 0600-1800 reserve so with the new 23 hour duty limit, unless they call you early for those overnight duties so you can get 10 hours rest, their shit out of luck.

Unless they can get a G day hero of course.

Lump sum payment

Isn't it funny how the company manages to find a formula to adjust the lump sum payment downwards but seems incapable of finding the formula to make the necessary additions for HDP and Overtime
Perhaps I could send it to them (the formula that is) or I ,along with everyone else should work out the amount owed individually and send that to the company demanding payment

km--This is one reason I'll bet they're wishing they left the A day thing alone. The 'old' system was working just fine and use of A days as a 'bargaining chip' would hurt the company more than anyone else--didn't take long for this to demonstrate itself. We called the bluff and now they're hoping the respective AOA's will buy off on a new lousy deal; I only hope they'll stand their ground, not cave, and make sure ALL their members can commute from the new system--at least as well as on the old one. No need to accept or support a lousy deal. 12 hours unrestricted would be fine; 14 even better (avg A day callout far exceeds this). Straight reserve usually cuts availability in half to one-fourth for based crews compared to A days.

OK4--while several entities can't participate in formal CC, there's no need for them to make the individual decision to work above contract either. Based on the latest goings-on I wouldn't expect a lot of goodwill or going above and beyond to be happening on an individual level anywhere until this gets resolved. I'd LOVE to hear the discussion in a courtroom where someone tried to prove folks acting individually and working to contract but only to contract constituted some form of organized IA under any labour law anywhere. Would make a good Monty Python sketch.

Chinese New Year will be a challenge for Crew controllers. We should send each one a gift, to illustrate that we really are in the same team, even with the lack of goodwill we are putting forth that is making their jobs challenging. A starbucks gift card would be fitting.

It's interesting how they are cutting flights that are profitable, only to put airplanes on slightly more profitable routes. Surely, an extra 15-20% for pilots would be more cost effective than even one cancellation a day. Our costs are miniscule when compared to overall revenue. It's not 1984 anymore!
