  • A few question about Australian Airlines...

    How independant is Australian Airlines? I mean, do they operate as a completley seperate entity from Qantas? Is it easy for pilots to transfer from Australian to Qantas and vice versa? Also, do Australian and Qantas share facilities such as check in counters, gates, ramp services, and catering?

    And while we are on that topic how is the relationship between JetStar and Qantas? Is it different from the Australian/Qantas link? And if so, how does it differ from the abovementioned?
    Whatever is necessary, is never unwise.

    Specialists and fellow members from Down-Under correct me if wrong
    -Australian takes up scheduled leisure services to selected points in South East Asia + Taipeh all kinds as parent company serves PRC China. Logics would see things to be undertaken by QF in terms of ground services.
    - Jetstar is the low-fare arm mission of which is to make its best in adressing Virgin Blue's case...
    - Qantas link undertakes the regional services.

      Australian serves Bali, Singapore, Hong Kong, Phuket, Fukuoka, Nagoya, Osaka, Sapporo and Tokyo from early next year. Taipei has not been a destination since SARS. Flights originate from Sydney, Gold Coast, Cairns and Darwin.

      Australian is run as a seperate business unit. Qantas must bid for contracts like any other company and does not always handle AO flights.

      Cabin Crew are employed by Australian, Tech Crew are Qantas pilots on fixed term transfer.

      Jetstar is also independant, the difference being that Qantas pilots must take leave without pay to fly for Jetstar under memorandum of understanding. Otherwise pilots are directly recruited to Jetstar.

        Interesting, especially Jetstar's case. When on assignment, how much time QF Tech Crew stay by AO ?
