Maybe it's time for the Australian government to start looking after the locals here.
Australian politicians and CEO's NEVER look after local Aussies. They haven't been doing it since Federation, and are not about to start now! (With the possible exception of Billy Hughes on Conscription for the British war effort in WW1. -But P.M. John Howard was on record to say he would consider it if "needed" again to support further American adventures, at the same time as he was taking away his citizens privately held firearms.)

Aussie Mateship is a cultivated Myth, brought up regularly to distract the voters from increased stifling regulation..

No Expat will upgrade in Fiji Airways !
I would be very cautious joining that company !
Except Aaron Dean (A330 fleet Captain) the rest of the management guys/girls in those offices in the Hangar are nothing but crooks ! Well I guess Pflieger did a great job hiring them !
Ask ..I promise ..I will tell

Relax "flying saint", your new CEO is openly stating locals get preference and they are actively turning away many experienced expat crews, even though crewing is short on all fleets. You have Frank on your side too! Chill, Fiji time

Is all of Fiji Airways pilot positions contracted? I'm current on a 737-800 with a Canadian company and they will be offering leaves soon. Any info on the best company to contract with? Thanks

Go with IAC Global. Fiji is doing interviews next week with a class starting 10 of March. It can happen quick if you have all your stuff together.

My understanding is expatriate first officers are advised they are not eligible for commands at Fiji Air regardless of their length of service in the airline or their competency and experience on type. And they are further told that as soon as local cadets are ready by local standards (read what you wish into that statement) to go into the right hand seat, the expatriate first officers will be given the bum's rush.

While that policy also applies to many foreign airlines, it is still a real let down and a bitter disappointment to those that have given loyal service. That policy also invites direct entry captains whose previous records be occasionally less than stellar if truth be known. Ask the Fiji Air first officers who crew with these types. You would be mildly shocked to say the least.

You're an idiot!!

Your negativity towards FJ seems to suggest that either you didn't get in or didn't get what you want. You must be just an explosion of joy to fly with. I could just see it - complaining all the way to destination and back.

People, FJ have their own rules, requirements and standards. It may not be the best in the world but it's theirs. If you don't like it their standards or conditions, don't join the company. It's as simple as that. Just like any other company in the world, you join em, you follow their rules! We all have our place somewhere in the world. As for you MASTEMA - your place is obviously not in this world.

Sounds like an expat who couldn't get his way....everybody must be a crook. Makes sense. Ok, there is no upgrade for expat FOs....and the problem is?? That's the way it works there. Don't like it - [email protected] off somewhere else!

After just three posts Chiieeck has revealed himself to be a self opinionated, 'my way or the highway', egocentric bully, with a low standards disorder.

Stay Blessed indeed.

Vinaka! Damn spell check, reminds of the story below.

A man received an e-mail from his neighbour: "Sorry Jim, but I have been using your wife... day and night whenever you're not at home. In fact, probably more than you. I'm confessing now because I feel really guilty.

I hope you will accept my sincerest apologies. I will ask your permission in the future.

Upon reading this, Jim, without uttering a word, throws his wife and all her possessions out the front door.

A few minutes later he received another e-mail: "Sorry Jim: I meant 'wifi' not 'wife'. Damn spellcheck!"
