Still resonating with me is the image

Of a foreigner

Telling Australian's one of their institutions is no longer going to operate because he doesn't want it to

Looks like jetstar will be the winner here and smells like that was the plan all along as I read all these posts. Even tiger will get a win out of this.

There is no doubt this was preplanned and even the Govt was deceived BIG TIME.

Lets hope the GOVT ramps regulatory review of every act of this lot and puts them all in handcuffs.

There is also hypocrisy in asking abandoned passengers to jump on a Jetstar jet so ALL consumers should resist that urge now because that is what they want you to do.

Lets also hope Jetstar staff are getting good advice about what they do from here.

Shameful day and shameful deceptions by QF Executives who presumably got all their Board home before this debacle was started, sorry implemented.

The only person in this lot who has any integirty it the Company Secretary who obviously knew and bailed. Lets hope ASIC nail her as their first witness.

Why the snap action - a weeks notice would allow CUSTOMERS to complete travel. Oh - passengers are CUSTOMERS?

Dick Smith is banging on again against unions, no logical explanation why AJ grounded ALL aircraft. Dick admits he flies with QF when he can, I bet he does not pay for that. He is another millionaire ****** that does not understand what he is bagging or why.

Why does he not get his chopper service in asia? NO, in Dubai

He is promoting buy Australia but condoning off shoring all Qantas jobs.

Wasn't Dick involved with qantas 10 years ago and stuffed that up?
Very good point Shorts, I thought Dick was all for Australian only too!

Hopefully the next photo we see of this turd is one with all his teeth missing and a couple of black shiners. I normally wouldn't wish this upon anybody, but he has certainly crossed the line with his deceit, pay rise and virtual closing of an airline. To hell with him and the board. This is in no way a death threat to the little man should he misconstrue it as one.

ohallen, yes, I did wonder about that yesterday when Mr Clifford announced it. "For health reasons" is always a convenient statement. Of course, it may be true.

TWU on ABC News 24 now, at a news conference, and has said that there had only been 6 hours of industrial action over the last 7 months from the TWU.

That's hardly commensurate, in anyone's books.

QANTAS

The unions,pilots and engineers will all fold. AJ has them by the balls and they have no other path but to take what he gives them or just walk out.
Who will hold out the longest.
I hope its not AJ.

Plane talking has been live blogging most of this including Albanese boring it up Joyce.

Richard Woodward for the union has said Qantas was planning this weeks ago with massive hotel bookings and talks with Cathay Pacific about extra flights.

Sandilands says including lost sales and finance costs for non-operating fleet Qantas is pissing $40 million a day against the wall. They have $3 billion in cash.

Woodward casts doubts on Joyce's mental stability.

Far out.

Where's Olivia?

"You can't just turn an airline on and off" - Quote from Olivia not so long ago.
Well darling it seems your boss has proved you so very wrong, are you going to apologise to everyone you bagged now? I bet you don't!

On another point, I bet Slater and Gordon are salivating at the thought of 108plane loads of passengers joining a class action for breach of contract or similar.

If history is anything to go by, the EK recruitment roadshow will be turning up any day now.

I hear qantas has contracted a freight agent to move massive amounts of "stuff" out of Australia to Asia.
It is done and dusted. If I can supply more I will try.
Sounds just like Ansett over again with the same names.
Can anyone confirm?

Woodward casts doubts on Joyce's mental stability.
So do we

Meanwhile in (comparitive) paradise - Borghetti has emailled each Cabin Supervisor personally to advise that he's listened to feedback and has made the decision to put the 5th crew member back on all flights below 1h40m (so I hear).
