So can Bain actually fix this? From their performance so far it doesn't look hopeful. Lots of impressive talk but it looks like the same old clusterfvck as in years gone by. Same old crewing cockups,...

At the b team, the 737-800 with winglets had a comfortable endurance of about 6.5 hrs with full tanks (approx 20.5 tonnes). To carry that fuel though you would have to cap pax at about 150~160 (and...

They were advertising for DASH8 crew recently so one would assume that basically that fleet has picked up the flying.

What 'contract' would that be ? If by contract you mean the company's proposed Enterprise Agreement, then no but by all accounts that proposal will get a resounding 'NO' vote so not really worth...

A fairly comprehensive picture has been detailed to many union members of what is involved in terminating an EA and, whilst it is possible, it is neither quick or nor easy and carries some risk for...

Virgin A330 (and B777) crew were on a completely separate EBA - Widebody redundancies stood apart from the Narrowbody crew. Likewise with Tiger and VANZ. All however are listed on the Group Date Of...

Aside from the FF Velocity, I don't think there is much left of value to sell. All the 'owned' 737NGs are security for debt. AFAIK there is no real estate or other significant assets. For $3.5...

and make that almost 100% for V2 or V3 or whatever moniker it's given. And they will have plenty of Union hassles going forward.

I've seen the Bain proposal and it's a turd of a joke to be sure. So on the assumption it's voted down with a resounding NO, where do they go from there ? Until there is a new agreement the current...

I don’t think the plan is in the near term to make anyone redundant after the new EA, IF it gets voted up. And that will be some time away. The current VR for the Narrowbody (737) crew is under the...

Just for perspective, over here at team V, there were 1810 pilots on the seniority list as of early April. All NZ based and all Tiger crew were made redundant at the onset of administration which...

So the play by Bain would presumably be if the new ultra-flexible award level salary agreement doesn’t get voted up then they threaten to make 200~250 more 737 pilots redundant.

What is the logic behind parking newer 787s over A330s ? Are they more expensive per seat-kilometre ?

Think about 340 B777 and A330 crew and something like 60 ATR. So ~400 redundant. That leaves something in the order of approx 880 B737 and 120 VARA crew at a guess. Someone correct me if they have...

Lookleft, B777 and A330 pilots cannot displace 737 crew. That is explicitly stated in the relevant EBAs. The only question is, if 737 crew are made redundant as well, in what order are the crew...
