Does this mean the ACCC won't approve the sale of Alliance to Qantas?

Will Qantas now look for another FIFO charter operator to acquire? I heard Cobham is up for sale.

Has Rod Sims been kicked out of the Chairman's lounge?


It didn't seem to concern the ever dull ACCC that the proposed conduct Qantas wanted in the tie up with Emirates, required an exemption to the Competition and Consumer Act 2010.
To gain this exemption, Qantas claimed to be in "terminal decline" something the ACCC dismissed, yet ironically gave them and then extended their "alliance".

Soft corruption is much cheaper than buying companies the old fashioned way.
