Just listened to the ATC recordings. Wow - just wow.

Yep. I found Sasha at Flight Deck Consulting excellent. Great, honest input which I was genuinely thinking about when I did the interview. I got the job, so she must've been right.

Air Asia A330 just landed in Brisbane with an apparent engine fire out of Cooly. More prayer required for their engineering perhaps.

Keep SFO-SYD in mind as a fall back option too. Sometimes LAX flights fill up more quickly for some reason.

The only reason I can see for the DHA is to provide a pay rise without the company being seen to provide a pay rise. With that in mind, it makes sense for the Captain DHA rate to be higher than for...
