    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Jetstar Airways full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    One crew per one room at layover. Seniority is relatively low compared to other airlines in Asia. Promotion to the more senior position is not limited by age.

    Cons

    Salary has become lower than it was a few years ago. Salary is relatively low considering that we spend most of the time in Australia. Long work pattern up to 20+ days out of home base. Limited staff benefits compared to Australian based employees.

    Advice to Management

    Fairer management to the overseas crew.
