Word is the 330 (or another large twin) out of Perth is back on the table.

Supposedly there are issues around 380 fire suppression times which prevent it going direct. 747 continues to operate...

787 won’t be going to Johannesburg, unless it’s coming back via Perth. It simply can’t uplift the payload out of Johannesburg.

I doubt the 787 is a viable A330 replacement unless the company can...

I sometimes wonder what would happen if every inbound aircraft with a WENDY, ARBEY, WAREN or LIZZI time simply replied ‘Unable. Require vectors’.

The company doesn't have to force a move to the 737, merely offer...

Seriously, if "the family" can afford a Challenger, they can afford a decent salary*. Which "family" is it anyway? The fecking Corleones?

*Such are the ways such people get richer, however.

Since this has morphed into a discussion about a potential RIN, I would urge 747 pilots, particularly FOs and SOs whose plan for any future RIN is to displace more junior pilots on more senior types,...

The thing is, the market rate SHOULD be higher. If there is a shortage of something (labour in this instance) the price of that something SHOULD go up in response. Australian pilots have looked at...

The one saving grace of the 787 contract is it costs nothing to go sick but allowances. There is no longer a perverse incentive to go to work tired or sick as there is now on big overtime sectors and...

Lend a hand? Very generous of you. I'm sure that your future colleagues would welcome you with open arms.

Keg, as it stands they need to slow the 747 retirement plan.

They wouldn't be able to maintain anything like the domestic capacity they need without it. Who would have thought we'd see...

I still remember when Runway 22 was about 300m longer than it is now. You could get a Chieftain in there when the gusty southwesterlies were in and the other runways were useless.

Couple of things I noticed.

1 Autothrottle wasn’t disconnected in the initial RTO actions. See this a lot in the sim, particularly with low speed RTOs.

You would have to join as a S/O and then bid for a promotion accordingly. There are no DEFOs or DECs to mainline.
