Did Qantas bolt too soon with job cuts?

Did Qantas bolt too soon with job cuts?

Qantas has been slammed by the TWU for not waiting for more clarity around the future of JobKeeper before announcing it will axe about 20% of its staff. Is the controversial decision in the best interest of the airline and its employees? In this episode of the Australian Aviation Podcast, hosts Phil Tarrant, Boo Boucousis and Adam Thorn discuss Alan Joyce's response to the criticism as well as the changes to the airline's business lounges as domestic travel is set to ramp back up. They touch on the latest around Virgin's preferred bidder, the chair's criticism of the company's former CEO, and REX's talk about getting into the domestic game after begging for a bail-out just a few months ago.
