    Latest results are encouraging. If only they can do something about fuel prices...

    Morales are pretty low though, except for those who got promoted from this lastest round of restructure of course. Oh well, there's still that new building to look forward to.........

    Rumour was 340 engineers applied for redundancy. So many that Nassenstein, engineering boss, denied a large number their request for golden handshake.

    Well you might check out the situations vacant in the Herald in the last few months and educate yourself. Since AIR advertised very publicly that they were going to send their maintenance offshore and make staff redundant, there have been large numbers of jobs advertised for aviation (in Hong Kong, Dubai etc) and other assorted engineers in the Natural Resources industry in Australia for example.

    Rob the Knife strikes again. Seems like the job cut in HQ has nothing to do with cost cutting. The only thing we've notices were people replaced by contractors, who usually cost 2-3 times more, and more pepole being promoted to managerial roles. The CEO's direct report has now increased from 6 to 10, and these level 2 managers actually makes about 2-3 times more money than a level 3 General Manager, which translates to a least a million extra in wages alone annually, not including perks like travel, car and god knows what. I could cry if I were an Air NZ share holder.

    Another example of poor leadership higher up is this get out if we can't make money tactic Rob has adopted. I wonder if he has ever considered the possibility that Air NZ lost money on all Asian routes because of its weak marketing and sales team. It sounded a bit to me like someone's blaming their tools for not doing a good job, rather than their incompetence. Surely China is easy, and you're bound to make money, until the market if saturated that is. But that just goes to show how lazy the new managemnt structures are. Even a third rated airline can make money servicing China, but only a shrew operator like Emirate can make money even in the so called "blood bath" on the TransTasman. Why doesn't Air NZ just stop flying Trans Tasman, packed up and move to China or N America, where there's a huge market and cheap labour?

    Been on that Vodka Comdre Bricks? [8D] Certainly reads that way.

    Of course it is a concern if what Animeart says is correct. If there is the growth in upper level management, and say $1 million in extra wages/benefit, then they have to earn another million dollars in gross profit, or cut a million in costs to justify their postions. Otherwise your divvies are going to get smaller....

    BTW, if you are a resident of NZ, then by default you are a shareholder of this sad little airline. About 75-80% owned by the government, who represent the people of NZ.

    Bricks, now you are starting to confuse Air NZ with 42 Below....

    Think you should keep posting in Russian - might have a better chance of string a sentence together and making some semblance of sense! [8D]

    Would think that the scrapping of the overlander would be a little fillip for AIR.
