And their statutory entitlements.. i.e unpaid leave, super payments.. and that's about it ? Unless their EBA had a provision for anything extra by way of redundancy in the circumstances of bankruptcy, sale or restructuring..She makes it sound like that's all they're getting.
You'd be amazed at the level of emotional connection some VA employees feel to the Virgin brand. I know of a few who would appreciate this gesture.
They still have charter agreements with Alliance, and those airports have security screening, so they could be operated by Alliance if they have capacity.The absence of ATRs from the fleet raises questions about the future of routes suited to ATR sized aircraft - Albury, Port Macquarie, Tamworth etc. Will they be handed over to Alliance or dropped?
Also, what will happen to Canberra? Does VA intend maintaining a similar frequency on SYD/CBR run with 737s? On that route, lousy frequency = no business
Summary: does not bode well for flights to true "regional centres"
Extract from an email update from Velocity this afternoon:So it follows when international routes re-open we'll be able to use credits or FF points to book them?
Good luck with that! You can reject the conditional credit and become an unsecured creditor.Any idea how to get a genuine refund?
They better drastically improve their access to their 'partners' because Velocity had barely any premium cabin international avails under the old VA1 guard...Extract from an email update from Velocity this afternoon:
When international travel restrictions ease, you’ll still be able to book redemption flights with global airline partners.
No joke. But if they give it to me, I’ll send it back with my compliments.This has to be a joke
Yep that was a condition of sale from Deloitte, that our entitlements are paid out in full if made redundant.You'd be amazed at the level of emotional connection some VA employees feel to the Virgin brand. I know of a few who would appreciate this gesture.
I believe from reports they are getting all of their entitlements paid out? So it's not a total slap in the face.
