Hopefully whoever prepares the ASX announcements over at Rex will take note - that is what a properly written market sensitive announcement should look like.

Thats sad. There will be no use for them anywhere in WA. I wonder if Alliance will do a special flight to say goodbye to the F50 just like VA did in February 2016 when they sold off the F50

When managers move between companies it is called head hunting when pilots move it is poaching. Odd that.

‘Non monetary incentives’. Like what, Friday pizza lunches?

Poaching pilots. FFS. I hope they lose everybody, and their former pilots all go on to better things. As for non monetary? Money talks, BS walks.

I presume they aren't allowed to give anything monetary based due to qantas "wage policy"

I reckon the lack of willingness to give monetary incentives well and truly pre dates any direction from QF.

G’day Saintly,
There’s one planned this Sunday in ADL; seats out of a staff lottery.

G’day TT,

Thats an interesting point given the current transition; who’s pulling the levers ?

I hope the rumoured EFA 2% is not a sign of things to come . . . Atlas will be happy, and Asia as a whole is yet to fire back up.

The day of reckoning is coming for Australian aviation. The day the tide goes out. The day its ridiculous 'standards' are seen for what they are. The day that every Australian pilot sitting in the right seat of a Saab/Dash8/Bras that has been told they should be thankful that they get to sit in the right seat for 8 years, the day they realise they could be flying a B747/777 without having to sit an interview with 3 Austronaughts, a psychologist and 2 HR experts while having their answers assessed by mensa HAS COME.

Sooooo you expect a job paying $200k plus to be based on an interview for numpties?

Most businesses employing people on that level of salary would be expected to conduct a reasonable level of due diligence.

Whilst due diligence is certainly required, I think the point is often the 'intellectual' interviewers do not understand aviation.
But maybe its a myth, no sarcasm, because at the end of the day most capable pilots I know have good jobs.
Personally Cathay passed me over (dodged a bullet there) for not knowing what the name of some obscure aircraft in a museum's name was, but I worked for other Asian airlines without issue and also passed Jetstar and QF assessment.

(edit for the dodged bullet comment)

The truth is no airline tells an applicant why they were unsuccessful. Perhaps you believe that is why they did not select you but it probably wasn’t.

How do you know that is why Cathay passed you over?
