For the hard of hearing, or for those who don't want to hear:

FACT. Qantas is pilloried for having done some of its maintenance off-shore.

FACT. Virgin Australia, irrespective of ownership, holds itself to the Australian nation that it's an Australian carrier.

FACT. Virgin Australia has most of its maintenance performed off-shore.

FACT. There are facilities and a skilled workforce in Australia that could acquit this maintenance.

Question 1. Why is there such silence in respect of Virgin Australia's off-shore policies?

Question 2. Why is Qantas so trenchantly criticized when its competitor is not?

Question 3. Is Virgin's off-shore maintenance of such a standard that it's more acceptable to Australian unions and the travelling public?

Question 4. What have the unions done, if anything, to bring Virgin's maintenance on-shore!
