Did Ansett manage their cabin crew in a similar way to Qantas? Was there a domestic and international 747 division?

Also - were the domestic crew endorsed on the entire fleet (737, 767, A320, BAE-146) and what were their main base cities?

Quoting Jackbr (Thread starter):

Ansett had a domestic and separate international division and unlike Qantas I believe, it was very difficult to transfer between divisions, primarily because Ansett International was managed separately (ownership structure was different) and Ansett wanted a fresh start for their International product. There were some domestic crew who sat interviews to transfer to the International division and they essentially took leave without pay from AN domestic for a period of up to 3 years (if i remember rightly?) Ansett were determined to start with a fresh sheet of paper with AN Intl, new EBA and free from the past. A Hong Kong based consulting firm was brought in to design the whole in-flight experience and for many years after start up, Ansett International was a 'benchmark' carrier and a winner of dozens of awards including the prestigious 'Mercury' award.

Domestic crew were indeed endorsed on the aircraft you listed above. Domestic cabin crew bases were located in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Perth, Cairns and Brisbane. International crew bases were Sydney and Melbourne.

Tech crew bases were - B747 - Sydney, B767 - Mel, Syd & Bne, B737 - Mel, Syd, Bne & Per, A320 - Mel, Syd, Bne & Per, Bae 146 - Mel, Syd, Bne, Cns & Per
