Just saw on the news here in Madrid that BA and Quantas are in merger talks. As a CAL pilot I really hope our management team is keeping an eye on this stuff.

Cheers

It's QANTAS not Quantas

Queensland And Northern Territories Air Service

One of the best airlines I've ever been a passenger on!

They mustn't be sober then! Taxes are high but the job itself pays well.

If you can earn over a 100k as a S/O life aint that bad.

Well, looking at the pay scales at APC (they may be wrong, just trusting whats on there), I don't know that i would say they are paid too well, at least compared to USD. Below are per hour hourly. (again, atleast thats whats on APC)

$206 AUD = 131 USD for 12 year 747 captain

$136 AUD = 87 USD for 12 year 747 first officer

$106 AUD = 68 USD for 1st year FO (not too bad compared to what the states have)

I don't care too much for them (Qantas) but APC is wrong i think.

Don't think many people from over here will be getting on with them anyhow so its a mute point.

I interviewed at a startup in that neck of the woods earlier and there was guys lining up from United to be paid 150k as a 777 type rated skipper.

I'd call that low.
