It happens around the country where the engineers need a hangar for a job.

In Bankstown they call it, "midnight motors". Mario comes out of his unit to drive to work to find his prized mags are missing..............

Qantas help out Virgin and Jetstar from time to time, the only difference is, Virgin actually pay for it...

Out of curiosity, are there any QF Group companies (catering, handling etc..)that provide services to Virgin?

I remember a few years ago they refused to provide Ground handling services to Tiger in a few remote ports citing "We're not in the business of helping our competitors"
