Qantas August 23rd announcements

It's not about the share price, it's not about 'where to from here' who has heard what about the big announcement..?

Rumour has it, $100mill loss, news says 767 refurb so one 'could' infer no 787's to Qf, plenty to JQ, Joyce has forgone his bonus, can't be fantastic news surely...

Big day ahead, go forth and rumour it up!

The "strategy" is on track

Jetstar is outperforming and will get more routes

Joyce will stay

The share price will decline

The public will be blamed for not choosing to fly QF

OK-my 2 cents worth.

* AJ punted......replaced by John Menadue
* Board sacked -Gillard does buy back of Qantas to improve her polling figures
* Qantas Domestic hived off -renamed Australian Airlines
* Fred Dag (aka John Clarke) to be poster boy for new Ad campaign
* Jetstar sold to China Southern for $1.
* Olivia to be appointed Gillard's press secretary
* Qantas Mainline returns to ATH,FCO,PPT,AMS,SFO AND CDG.
* Boeing order of 32 x 777's
* A-380's sent back to Toulouse with ...Merci Beaucoup painted on side!

*Staff treated with respect. No.... on second thought that is totally unrealistic-will never happen-unlike the the rest on the list.

My best guess is Strambie, but too early to be announced.

I think they will announce that all employees are going to be given a free colonoscopy. It will be compulsory.

Somebody wake the Gimp

reminds me of the Gimp scene in Pulp Fiction!


Does make me wonder now who is behind the mask?? A QF manager, 'R'egulator or employee of the Ministers office?

My best guess is Strambie

I'm with this one. Maybe not tomorrow but it's no co-incidence that there has been a noticeable raising of his profile by Qantas in the media.

Free kick with QF to Gold Coast, article about domestic refurb full of Strambie quotes....


Methinks the plan is hatched and the buttering up has commenced.....

Of course this makes perfect sense.

Another executive lightweight completely out of his depth.

Are there any more incompetent twits waiting for their chance to completely screw the job?

AJ announces that he is grounding the fleet until the Twitterati/bloggers stop being mean about the crappy new ad;

Leigh Clifford says that staff are the company's greatest asset and actually means it;

Leigh Clifford then gets dragged off to involuntary care by his fellow board members because they realise the previous statement is so off the beam for him that it's indicative of a psychotic episode;

Peter Cosgrove quits, as he finally realises that being a part of the Qantas Board is doing absolutely nothing for his reputation as a man of integrity;

Mars Rover sends back pictures of the new Heavy Maintenance facility. It's not just off-shored but off-planet cos the Martian amoeba are cheaper to hire; they know jack about aircraft and don't have any arms or legs but hey, they're cheap;

Shareholders get told it's all going great despite the International 'loss' (nothing to see here ) and what's wrong with $1 a share anyway.

THE BIG ANNOUNCEMENT
Emirates are going to buy Qantas and use the fleet exclusively for live goat freighters, because goats don't care whether the IFE works or not.
