A bit of good news for a change :)

Ansett received clearance to return to service today and recommenced operations simultaneaously with 2 flights departing Melbourne and Sydney. It seems that employee power has a lot to do with the restart and although the future still looks uncertain for Ansett, I for one wish them all the best.

What a relief!!!

Any truth in a rumour that the Ozzy drivers in SIA had approached the top boys NOT to recruit any ex Ansett boys as they are "scabs".???

Hardly anything to get too excited about. Only a very small fraction of its former self. More of the sad details in "Dunnunder". :(

There are no scabs at ansett, the folks in dispute in 1989 resigned, leaving their jobs to those who chose to accept them...

I was a dispute pilot and it is good to see that what goes round comes round.

A pity for some Ansett workers but they should have given us some support in 89 and perhaps this would not have happened?

Onya dude!!

2 high,

No truth at all. There have been a umber who went just prior to this debacle, and a few since. The managers at SQ don't care too much for petty prejudices, particularly ones held about events 12 years old and in another country.


I'm sure it wouldn't have happened if you were here. It's God punishing the scabs.

Willie:- Please, don't encourage any more of them to defect to D&G, we have enough of them here already.

Kind regards,
