    Qantas Senior Managers get the chop.

    Not sure what the thinking is behind expanding QF Freights domain to include catering.........

    The leaked document shows Qantas' struggling international division will consolidate the roles of some of its regional general managers, resulting in some overseeing a larger number of countries.Departures include Daniele Da-Rin, who previously managed Western Europe for Qantas, Maxine Jacquet, the head of alliances, and Chadi Chalhoub, the head of international airports.
    Qantas' domestic business will also cease having regional general managers, which will result in the departure of Ian Gay, Peter Collins, Allan Williams, Ken Ryan and Rina Karabesinis over the next few months.
    However, the large shake up of the airline will result in some managers gaining a wider brief, including Qantas Freight boss Alison Webster who will also take responsibility for the airline's catering operations.
    ''Qantas Catering, as a shared resource of the whole of the airline, will report to Alison Webster in the International business,'' the memo said.

    re: Qantas Senior Managers get the chop.

    Strewth. I wonder about this one:

    The 26 managers to go include the previously confirmed departures of Qantas Domestic chief operating officer Matt Lee following the airline's decision to opt for a single chief operating officer for its domestic and international operations. That job has fallen to Jetstar executive Andrew David, a former boss of Tigerair Australia.
    Jetstar-isation of Qantas is one thing. But Chief Operating Officer ex Tiger? <shudder>

    Re: Qantas Senior Managers get the chop.

    From the Weekend Australian Business News (Page 25) article on Sat 22nd March (by Lisa Allen):

    The Airline stressed yesterday that there would still be sales representation in each state and said that Qld RGM Peter Collyns would continue in Brisbane in a sales capacity.

    I can't find the article to link??

    I'm glad he's been reassigned, would be a shame to see him go considering the wealth of knowledge he must have brought back to them in February. Just over a month ago. Who knows if they'll get that same level of feedback in a years time.
