Dunno, but I have heard that when they have finished with the 727,s they will drill holes in the spars so that they will not be available in the marketplace for a competitor to fly......................

I don't think National jet is that stupid, but then again you never know with the current management

Pushback, from what i have seen i would disagree with you there strongly mate. Toll Holdings are the guys growing at a fast rate and from what i can see will only get bigger. AAe are set between a rock and a hard place. ( Qf and oz post) On another note, Toll launched a spin off subsiduary company on the Australian Share Market today, Asciano Ltd. Get em while there cheap... as an old captain said to me when i was a younger fella, "he who hesitates, masterb...s'
Asciano launched at $10.35 jumped to $10.72 in an hour....

..........pushback you are kidding.since bucks got the ass from aae the place has been going steadily backwards.combine this with qantas stuffing up the 737 conversions and all the unserviceabilites and unhappy customers they are not going from strength to strength. in fact i have heard if things don't turn around soon toll will be the only freight company in business down in oz.
