The baggage handlers are from Express Ground Handling - a QF
company. They are NOT JQ
employees nor does JQ
have a say in how many of them are employed. They just pay EGH for the service provided, as set in the contract. EGH sets staffing levels. And for your information these employees are paid the same as their counterparts on the QF
ramp and receive QF
staff benefits. Don't believe everything in the media.
It could be the fault of either crew OR
the air traffic control. Don't go pointing fingers.
I think QF
would have a hard time explaining if it was the 737s fault (pure speculation) and not JQs. How would QF
Media Relations explain that I wonder?!
