The Qantas decided that Qantas laid off a five hundred employees who are 200 Qantas line maintenance, 250 contractors at Avalon in Victoria and others 50 people because of financial difficulties. Also, The latest cuts take the total number of jobs axed from Qantas’s engineering operations this year to about 1260. I think that this Qantas’s decision is just for their profits. It just show that they do not think about passenger’s safety because they cut the large of number maintenance for their profits. Also, the most people know that they have financial difficulties recently but their decision is not helpful for Qantas and passengers. Therefore, they have to solve this finanacial difficulties by the ohter way that they increase their economy by using the other business item which are best service, best safety, best environment in airplane. It might be high price for passengers but quality is better than quantity which means their profits.
Qantas is one of largest airline in Australia aviation indutsry but if they cut many employees, they will lost credibilty from their customers and their cooperation company. Even though, they have financial difficulties. Therefore, If Qantas want to be best Airline company in world, they should find the other way for financial difficulties with out cut employees.
The author used some statistics about their restructuring a business. According to the author, “In August Qantas closed its heavy maintenance base at Melbourne’s Tullamarine Airport, resulting in the loss of 422 jobs. A further 113 positions have already gone from the base at Avalon, and the latest cuts will leave the engineering workforce there at 340 – just over half its size at the start of the year.”, also the author’s statistics showed how the problem serious in Qantas. It makes to understand easily for audience.
