Obscene amount of pay, IMHO. Joyce may be able to claim some credit, but fuel prices have played a part in achieving profits - and in previous years, particularly 2014 - losses..

QUOTE
Qantas CEO Alan Joyce's record $25 million pay this year makes him just one of five CEOs to receive more than $20 million in reported pay in one year, and the first to top highs not seen since the financial crisis.

The Qantas annual report, released on Friday, showed that Mr Joyce's high pay reflects a large payout of his long-term incentives and shares (Mr Joyce's base pay was just $2.1 million) which have ridden the benefits of the growing company share price which has increased from a low of almost $1 in 2014 to close to $6 today.

Mr Joyce, who is widely credited for turning around the ailing airline, made a personal donation of $1 million to the 'yes' campaign for same-sex marriage earlier this week.

Three years ago, 97 per cent of Qantas shareholders voted to weight Mr Joyce's long-term incentives to pay-out this year if he could deliver the goods.

The Irish-born Australian citizen has delivered on his promise and seen his pay jump from $12 million in 2015 and $13 million in 2016 to $24.58 million this year.

The World’s Longest Flight Is Coming
Qantas wants to fly from Sydney to New York or London nonstop—with a little help from Boeing and Airbus.
By Justin Bachman

QUOTE
Pretty much everyone prefers a nonstop flight—business people, especially. And they are more likely than most to be in a position to afford the premium. But right now, all the money in the world won’t get you from Sydney to the Big Apple or U.K. without a pit stop, because commercial planes just don’t have that kind of range.

That may soon change. For many years, executives at Australian carrier Qantas Airways Ltd. have coveted a nonstop offering from Sydney and Melbourne to London. Now, as technology has matured, Qantas executives finally see the potential to realize that dream. Two new models planned by Airbus SE and Boeing Co., they hope, will be able to make the nonstop trip to London—20 hours and 20 minutes—from Sydney. This new model would also jet across the Pacific Ocean to New York in about 18 hours.

On Friday, Qantas Chief Executive Officer Alan Joyce issued a public “challenge” to the companies to extend the range of Boeing’s new 777X, which is slated for 2020, and the planned “Ultra-Long Range” version of Airbus’s A350, which rolls out next year. Qantas hopes to take delivery of such a plane and begin its Sydney to London service in 2022, the company said as part of its full-year income results.

QUOTE
Qantas (QAN) surprised the market with downgraded expectations on demand growth for the current half. Demand had been tracking at around 3-4% annualised as late as January, however a soft March and the base effect of last year's Cricket World Cup, plus the expectation of a lull in travel related to the Federal election, has seen them cut expectations back to flat growth. The excess capacity that has resulted has seen price discounts across all their seats, which in turn has seen expected earnings drop 8-10% - back to where market expectations were 2 months ago.

The stock was off 17% for the week, implying that some believe QAN's cycle has peaked. We don't believe that it has. There is always some volatility in airline demand – and QAN's rational response in cutting capacity by 4-6% should remove the need for further discounting. Its domestic rival Virgin Australia has followed suit, reinforcing our view that the competitive environment remains stable, rational and conducive to continued profitability. We do not buy the argument that this downgrade could see an end to the recent share buyback program.

QAN remain on track to deliver over $1.6bn in cash flow this year, leaving plenty of headroom for further capital return. At around 6x P/E, it remains at a significant discount to the market and, crucially, to its global peers, providing a solid base for re-rating as the company demonstrates that this downgrade does not signal a permanent downturn in the company's fortunes
.

but I wouldn't bother

Some new what was going on way before this announcement today.........V1

SYDNEY, 8 December 2014: The Qantas Group today announced that it expects to report an Underlying Profit Before Tax1 in the range of $300 million to $350 million for the first six months of financial year 2015.
All operating segments of the Qantas Group are expected to be profitable in the first half, at an Underlying Earnings Before Interest and Tax level.
The strong turnaround in the Group’s financial performance is being driven by rapid progress with the $2 billion accelerated Qantas Transformation program announced 12 months ago. To date, all targets under the program have been either met or exceeded.
After realising $204 million in Qantas Transformation benefits in the second half of financial year 2014, the Group is on track to realise at least $350 million in further benefits in the first half of
financial year 2015 The Group expects to receive a $30 million benefit in the first half from lower Australian dollar fuel prices.
Qantas CEO Alan Joyce said the Qantas Transformation program was gathering pace and, with a more stable operating environment, benefits were flowing directly to the Group’s financial results.
“Today we confirm that Qantas is set to report its best first half result since 2010,” Mr Joyce said.
“This demonstrates that the strategy we have outlined to transform our business is working. This is an improvement of over $550 million compared with the first half last year, with Qantas
Transformation being the primary driver of the turnaround. “Qantas is 12 months into a three and a half year program, but these strong early results give us the confidence that we will continue to meet all the targets we have set. We are committed to completing the full, $2 billion program to ensure a sustainable, competitive position for the long term.

think the only reason to fly QAN is if only they fly there.Strikes,cabin service so so.Who needs tiffs between cabin stewards?
Agreed

A TA opinion of Airlines…as if anyone cares.(B/Class)
Emirates..great but hate the Dubai Airport and BC lounge.
Emirates B/C great but getting pricey. Dubai good, BC lounge good, express transfer train something else. Gatwick BC lounge good. Chauffeur service unbeatable everywhere. Great timetables ex Perth. Heathrow and Gatwick now are crap.

Qatar….great.New planes,old,temporary Airport pretty good and BC lounge excellent.Uses the new HR London Terminal (Terminal 5 ? shares with BA).Haven't been to new A/Port as yet.
Quatar... going to try their Premium Economy

Malaysian…feel for these guys.Talk about a run of bad luck!Excellent service,food and KL Airport is a beauty.
Singapore…just excellent,but their flights don't quite fit in with my flying anymore.
Haven't flown either for years, wouldn't touch Malaysian with a barge pole

American Airlines in general…..hopeless.
