A bit of a thread drift but good point:
But then airports aren't really interested in airlines. They're more interested in car parks, $8 coffees and duty free. Airlines and their demands for aerobridges, GSE parking and, what?? You want working ground power AND air con on the international bridges?? All this is simply a nuisance to the airport corporations because it's effectively a monopoly in every state: 1 capital city, 1 airport. So the airports have no desire to cater to the airlines because the airlines largely have no choice but to fly there and grit their teeth at paying exorbitant charges for s**t service and facilities
An enquiry into the airports is long over due. Monopoly gouging, lack of infrastructure at BNE, PER & SYD, just disgraceful.

Unless their charges and attitude towards the airlines improves there will be more corporate airline failures. Which is not good for any of us.
