    Pros

    Fellow crew Stable company with massive cash reserves Modern aircraft Even oz crew flight deck treat QCCUK with respect

    Cons

    Qantas !! The leadership team at QCCUK and the absolute shockers in mascot leadership roles are simply the worst. We are currently being asked to take 2 years leave without pay but can be called beck at a moments notice at the whim of Qantas. DO NOT DO IT IT IF THEY EVER recruit in UK again they will treat u like hashtag on the sole of your shoe and expect u to be thank full for this. Remember this is a company who has £3bil cash reserves !! Have furlough all UK crew since March to Oct UK Government paid our wages and QF won’t even pay us redundancy they want us to have two years of waiting for them to fly again. Honestly worst worst employer in the globe !! Even in usual times the QCCUK crew leadership teams have never seen leadership they just look at u in the base as rubbish and treat u with complete distain!
