    It's difficult to see a long-term future for unionised crews at QF.

    You know what, I think its great. I have just finished writing a 'Dear Geoff' letter, complimenting the Jetconnect service on a recent trip to NZ (both international & domestic), which in my opinion is 500X better than mainline QF Australian based crew.

    I have never had such attentive yet unobtrusive service which anticipated passengers needs & made everyones trip comfortable even in the old 737's that QF australia has flung across the ditch to keep NZ honest.

    I'm not sure if it is because in NZ, QF isn't as dominant as they are in Australia - and have to work a bit harder, or how Jetconnect is run - management etc. Whatever they are doing its great, and I would be more than happy to see similar crew who actually want the job working for QF....

    I think part of it is due to the culture of the company. QF has had decades of this culture and it's probably difficult for them to shake it, not to mention the entrenched conditions. I've found the DJ service (and O7 when it was flying) heaps more friendly in comparison.

    Jakeseven7 I have also experienced this on the flights to NZ. I have had to fly there twice in the past 3 months and the service was definitely better than the normal QF standard.
