Slight correction - The reason there was no target set was because last year the target was 7.2bn and 2.5bn was achieved compared to a profit the previous year of 8bn profit (7.7 target)

The lack of target was not as a result of ‘massive profit’ at the time - in relative terms that is.

Always interesting to read the posts of those who are ‘certain’ we are not getting anything, happens every year with the usual suspects - yet since 2003 we have missed step twice 2009 & 2017, and since 2008 profit share four out of 10 times
2009, 2012, 2013 & 2017

Not getting into the threshold/package debate, we are way behind & I’m not defending the Co. but for the most part the doomsdayers have been wrong yet somehow keep comin back for more.

I’m cautiosly optimistic of a small profit share 2-4, step / raise anyone’s guess.

I should point out that if the 78-92-88 threshold was taken into account along with everything else we are down double digits in salary in the last 10 years - a disgrace, but we know that already.

Helmet strap tightened! 😯

Fliion, happy to be proven wrong of course but when you see retention of experienced crew is clearly not a priority anymore, it isn't hard to draw such conclusions.

The ‘ban’ is only temporarily lifted until a more streamlined means of collecting the duty, etc is found. The current process is extremely inefficient and involves a fair amount of extra work for the Customs personnel.

Not even an e-mail? Oh wait, just a quietly placed "update" on the portal. And still trying to blame it on customs I see.... What a sad bunch of pathetic little people that they are.

I would say we are down double digits in the last year alone, let alone last 10.
