Cannot share the link as against forum rules (I think), but last night Four Corners was a must watch for any current or former Qantas customer.

Feel sorry for all the staff that were shafted, and was disgusted at the lack of aircraft cleanliness during Covid.

What a lot of vacuous sensationalist grovel. Unions and ABC should be ashamed taking the public for fools. Save it. CASA's conclusion that Qantas more than complies with its safety obligations makes the Unions and ABC look like clowns.

As a passenger, you can clearly see the safety standard has plummeted which combined with a very low engaged workforce, is a recipe for disaster. They now just deflect everything onto their newly employed stakeholders as it isn't then QF. Hats off to them for a great marketing control team. It doesn't help that AusGov and CASA dont want Qantas with a bad reputation, as it poorly reflects on them.


I too, do not want Qantas to fail, but sometimes the big boys need to admit when they made poor & critical changes to a company that lower safety standards.


Wishing them a brighter future before it's too late.

There is no doubt the ABC report suit the union’s narrative for their ongoing negotiations and dispute with QF, in an area particularly sensitive ie airline safety rather than services.

The media is probably sensitised to more airline safety issues atm but the fairfax news this week about a Dash-8 being overloaded for a flight to Lord Howe Island (not discovered until arrival) and pax from a NSW regional flight without departure airport security screening is allowed into the T3 without rescreening says a bit about the QF situation.

Mind you the security issue may reflect the airport lapse as much as QF protocol, but the report suggests a business pax on the plane from orange only flagged this issue at the Sydney QF lounge and only the connecting flight this pax was catching was affected at the end of his journey to MEL (the entire plane pax escorted out of the secure airport area) rather than evacuating the entire T3 at the time of reporting says a bit about the Swiss cheese holes (as mentioned many times in the 4 corners episode)

Where there's smoke there's usually fire. In a case like this who to believe what caused it: the homeowner of the firies on the ground?
