The writer makes an interesting point: "This raises questions about whether Qantas boss Alan Joyce was too quick on the draw when he accepted redundancies of more than 230 pilots, as COVID grounded the aviation sector globally."
Of course, as they say, hindsight is always 20/20 vision!

Nothing but a media beatup of a non-issue. They'll train the pilots. And the pilots they hire to replace the 200 redundancies will be on far cheaper contracts
My thoughts exactly. Finding 200 pilots in this market won’t be hard, and they will be paid a lot less than the 20+ year captains who took VR. Same for cabin crew.
