This was a post from Jayne on their internal social network.
Is there a source?
It's hardly surprising and there was no guarantee of further cuts. (Also with Jetstar moving B787 fleet into long term storage paints the current bleak picture as they could have been used domestically.)
I am not sure that I am quite so keen on being inundated with new VFF points earning emails every few days announcing new partners/opportunites when there's really very little opportunity to use existing points balances for worthwhile (>0.5 cent) redemptions.
As we joined VFF right at the start - perhaps that's why we get the delight of seeing the emails (often sent pre-6am) early.Ok, now I know what you are talking about, I have had 3 emails from VFF today alone.... mostly on rats and mice people joining the program....
From the media sources it sounds like these aren't additional and part of the original forecast, though they didnt pull the trigger.Virgin is making another 350 staff redundant in head office and ground based roles.
Not a great time to be in the industry. I wouldn't be surprised if QF announce more redundancies at their half year results.Might explain a few things.... a couple of prominent people we deal with have evaporated....
Sorry for the poor employees there, its really an awful time for everyone in aviation, but especially Virgin with all of this ongoing restructuring, knifes hovering over your head still.... Stressful.
