Schapelle Corby - Alan Joyce, Why didn't QANTAS sack the baggage handlers who paraded and wore a passenger's stolen property?


















Some questions to Alan Joyce, CEO of QANTAS . . .

Dear Alan,

Why didn't QANTAS sack all the baggage handlers who illegally interfered with passenger David Cox's luggage (on Wednesday, 6 April 2005 - as reported in the press on Friday 8 April 2005), and who were complicit with the theft of his property?  Quote . . .

Baggage handler loses payout
“Seven months ago, when the Herald revealed a Qantas worker had paraded across the tarmac at Sydney Airport wearing a camel costume checked as domestic baggage, the airline indicated it had sacked that employee. Instead, the man sacked was the one who had taken the costume out of the bag of a passenger David Cox. He had been only one of at least six baggage handlers identified in the dress-up shenanigans. The baggage handler Mr Cox saw on the tarmac wearing his camel costume, a promotional prop for the Northern Territory Tourist Commission, has recently taken redundancy, the Herald understands.”  Sydney Morning Herald, 21 Nov 2005

Roger, Ramjet: it's over and out for boozing, pot-smoking baggage handler
"Seven months ago, the Herald revealed that a Sydney Airport worker had been spotted tooling across the tarmac on a trolley tug wearing part of a camel suit that a passenger had checked on as luggage. At the time, Qantas said the employee had been sacked. The Herald now understands the dismissed employee was the handler who first took the suit from its case, but not the handler seen on the tarmac. At least six baggage handlers donned the camel costume during the merrymaking." Sydney Morning Herald, 16 Nov 2005

I guess that's another salient fact we can add to coming full page news ads about your airline's gross security failures? Along with your employment of Bilal Khazal . . .
