In the mean time Joyce and Qantas continue to give all of Qantas international profitable flying to Jetstar. No wonder Qantas international are not making a profit, because all the profitable routes are being gifted to Jetstar. This would also explain the continual decrease in market share for Qantas and increase for Jetstar. Net result, a continual decline in company market share because customers get pissed off with Jetstar and move to a quality carrier who are still doing the routes that Qantas used to.
I love how they recently took the Boeing 747 (with high load factors) off the Auckland-LAX route to replace it with a medium haul aircraft that is not suited to that run. The loads now are dismal. Manipultion at its greatest!! Next year, they will claim that Qantas are not making money on the route and el presto, Jetstar takes it over!
He has the gift of the gab this little Irishman. They want to fix the Qantas business? Then give the profitable routes you gifted to Jetstar back to Qantas would be a start. I see the SYD-ZQN flying is shortly going to Jetstar. Again more profitable Qantas international flying going to Jetstar. No wonder Qantas international find it hard to make a profit.
