They’re not. BFOD applies but like many rules/laws, there can be limitations/loopholes depending on destination, frequency of services, time of day travel is required and timing of connections.Because they can. Are all Fed public servants limited to flying Q?
Thanks for the page.... I’ve been on a self imposed hiatus for reasons most of this thread know but am now happily concluded on that project and about to escape for a mini break to Tassie to kick back and relax for the first weekend I have had off in about 7 months!
Thanks for all of the kind direct messages / posts thanking me for the warnings etc but please know I wasn’t the only one who had calculated Virgin 1’s probable demise.
The writing was plainly on the wall pre-covid, for those that cared to see past the PR headlines and a few other more analytical members on here saw it coming too.
Please know that I cannot comment on anything that isn’t public knowledge obviously and any opinions expressed are my own personal opinions only.
Now to get my Tassie border pass thing!
Welcome back to AFF! I'm sure we all have 1000 questions to pepper you with over your 'project' that you can't answer unfortunately lol.
But firstly a personal thanks for your heads up, I was personally able to get all of my Velocity points out and my families to SQ as well before it was all shuttered.
Did you have to fly much during the lockdown for the work? And what are your PERSONAL thoughts on what is publically known about what Bain / VA2 is planning?
It looks on paper a very good Executive Team.Media release on the new executive leadership team appointments (5 of 7 are QF group alumni):
Lisa Burquest, Chief People, Safety and Sustainability Officer, The a2 Milk Company, to become Chief People Officernewsroom.virginaustralia.com
In which those board members would have been appointed by Shareholders. The final board will be interesting as only Bain has any real interest as I don’t think Queensland Government or Virgin Group would get the entitlement to each select a seat on the board."on paper" yes. Let's see what happens from there.
Last remember the last time the VA board got flooded with ex-QF, SQ and EY executives.
