Qantas is known as the national airline, but it's also the national outsourcer. It's been in the news outsourcing maintenance to Asia, and for it's low cost airline Jetstar training Australian cadets in New Zealand, so Jetstar could pay them in much cheaper NZ dollars.

And speaking of New Zealand, when you buy a Qantas ticket to the land of the long white cloud, you will be flown by a company called Jetconnect, a New Zealand-based Qantas subsidiary that looks and smells like Qantas, and is wholly owned by Qantas. The staff, however, get paid 40% less than Australian staff, but you still get charged the same price for your ticket.

It was only two years ago that Jetconnect started eroding Australian jobs on the Trans Tasman routes now they operate 100% of Flying Kangaroo flights to NZ, but as a customer you wouldn't know it.

If all that sounds confusing we made an ad for Qantas and Jetconnect to help explain it. Footage and Stills
