paving the way for majority foreign ownership and offshoring of jobs.
Yeah because the QSA in place at the moment has definitely stopped offshoring of jobs....

Let Qantas and Virgin fit on their own merits. I say the rules of engagement should be "No shackles, no handouts". Both carriers are free to trade and operate as they see fit. Want to dump capacity on the market and let your deep pocketed investors foot the bill? Go for it! Want to slash fares and build more lounges? Sure!

Ultimately what it'll come down to is which airline has friends with the best bank accounts. Who wins either way? Aussie travellers. I guess all the QF engineers better brush up on their dishwashing skills and put in with catering or something...
