    The comment about offering "career flexibility for pilots to move between Jetstar and Qantas" is interesting. It seems clear that QF is intent upon standardising wage rates between the two operations, which makes a lot of sense.

    but that comment was not made by Qantas. It was attributed to Peter Somerville, the spokesperson for APIA (Australian and International Pilots Association), which is effectively the pilot's union. The flexibility to move between the two airlines was part of a proposal put to Qantas by AIPA. Of course the AIPA's goal was to have JQ International flight crew work under the current QF conditions. I suspect there will be an impasse when QF was it the other way around :-| .
