Australian airline Qantas has asked senior executives to work as baggage handlers for three months as it tries to tackle an acute labour shortage.
The firm's head of operations is looking for at least 100 volunteers to work at Sydney and Melbourne airports.
Tasks include loading and unloading bags as well as driving vehicles to move luggage around airports.
Like much of the global airline industry, Qantas is struggling to resume its services as borders reopen.
"The high levels of winter flu and a Covid spike across the community, coupled with the ongoing tight labour market, make resourcing a challenge across our industry," Qantas' chief operating officer Colin Hughes said in an email shared with the BBC by the company.
"There is no expectation that you will opt into this role on top of your full-time position," Mr Hughes added.
