Yet according to our Chairman apparently it's the workers of the place who are living on another planet and according to our CEO that place is cloud cuckoo land. All of that because apparently we don't understand the business. I'd say the frustrating thing for them is that we understand the business far more than they want us to because we're calling them on their attempts to destroy it.

Looks like the management and board are playing "limbo" with the share price. How low can you go? $1.96 today's low so far.

We all should have bailed at $6. Can you imagine if the Texans were running the place now? On the other hand maybe it may have been better...

The writing it on the wall for the Chairman and CEO

Qantas and Alan Joyce and Leigh Clifford

Finally, reading between the lines, it all has caught up with the real rouges at Q. The clock is ticking as we watch the demise of Q management in its infancy today but defiantly heading south no matter what Clifford said in the Australian last Saturday.Not a good look for these guys!
The new flight plan


The new flight plan | The Australian
As they finish their second bottle of fine French wine in a corner of the Sofitel lounge bar in Sydney¿s Phillip Street, Geoff Dixon and Peter Gregg warm to their task of telling the new boy on the block, Alan Joyce, how to run Qantas. The scene would have surprised many people in the industry had they witnessed it. Dixon, the departing CEO, had put his considerable weight behind Joyce to succeed him. Gregg, who had expected to get the job, had already handed in his resignation as chief financial officer. But tonight there is no sign of ill feeling. Instead, three blokes share a friendly, robust conversation.

Joyce, the baby-faced whiz-kid from Dublin, listens patiently as Dixon and Gregg dispense advice with increasing intensity, especially on the need to take business risks. There’s an easy camaraderie and an obvious affection between Dixon, 68, and Joyce, 42. And Gregg, 53, doesn’t hold back.




“It was the first time the three of us had got together since the announcement (that Joyce would be CEO),” Dixon recalls. “Close to finishing off the second bottle of wine, both Peter and I were giving him plenty of advice.

It has been going in circles for too long now, should be an interesting couple of weeks...

Funny - Now this hot off the press, Q are firing every thing they have.

Virgin Australia loses potential partner to Qantas | Malaysia Airlines
Virgin loses potential partner to Qantas

However, the likelihood of closer ties with Malaysia failed to halt a continued slide in Qantas shares today.
Qantas slumped 6.5 cents to $1.965 in early afternoon trading as the stock is weighed down by a standoff with its long-haul pilots and engineers over new employment contracts. Virgin’s shares rose 0.5 cents to 28.5 cents today.

Money Looking For a Home

There is a lot of money on this planet looking for a home.With huge cash flows and asset backing of around $2.40/share Qantas will be a very attractive proposition to that money.
This is looking very much like a path that has been trodden before.
I'm with Crocodile $1.70 to $1.75 is a buy

As I understand it, index funds (and other funds) buy and sell on market cap, so if it drops out of top 50, top 100, top 200 etc etc they have no choice but to sell.

I reckon there would be plenty on the board sh!tting themselves, plenty of managers sh!tting themselves and an Irish gimp about to make a career choice.

This arseclown gives all the convicts that help build this joint a bad name
