After every flight Quantas pilots fill out a form, called a "gripe sheet",
which tells the mechanics about problems with the aircraft. The mechanics
correct the problems, document their repairs on the form, then the pilots
review the gripe sheets right before the next flight. Never let it be said
that the ground crews lack a sense of humor.
