Not saying they'll do it, but certainly possible given how many options we have. By the time the last 787-10 (or 9) is delivered from the Firm orders, our original 787's will be close to 10 years...

Disappointed to say the least.

The Company has quoted less than 7% of travelers between NZ and Europe go with us via LAX... Had LAX given us access to a terminal with Transit facilities perhaps it...

The point was, there's a place for both and Pilots are free to choose Seniority or otherwise when deciding where they want to work. Don't moan about Airline X being Seniority based, take a DEC...

The argument against seniority seems heavily based on the European market where Airlines rise and fall like poorly run cafes.

South of the equator, it’s a little different. If Air NZ and QANTAS...

In 6 years at Air NZ, I’ve averaged about 20 slots per year on seniority. Even at 80:20, how long will it take number 600 on the RSL to see a Jet?

It likely has to do with keeping those results from the company.

I haven’t seen the contract, only the new payscales, and I do think it’s a bit strange to have a blended rate. At Air New Zealand, we have a blended rate on the 777 to allow for -200/300 variants,...
