Tigerair Bali flights grounded

from TT's website:

Denpasar (Bali) Cancellations 11 Jan
Tigerair Australia has cancelled several flights to Denpasar (Bali) today following a decision by the Indonesian government to impose new administrative requirements for the operation of its flights between Bali and Australia.

A list of cancellations is included below. Tomorrow’s daily return Bali flights are under review and update will be made on this website. In the event of further cancellations, customers will be contacted proactively by Tigerair Australia.

Tigerair is working with the relevant Indonesian authorities to meet the new requirements and is hopeful of having flights up and running again as soon as possible.

All other Tigerair domestic flights are not affected by this decision.

Tigerair is contacting passengers affected by today’s cancellations to provide reaccommodation options to ensure customers are supported during this disruption. Tigerair Australia sincerely apologises for the inconvenience caused by today’s cancellations.

Customers booked to travel on Tigerair services to and from Bali today are advised not to go to the airport and that the airline will contact them directly with their options.

Customers travelling with Tigerair to Bali in the near future are advised to refer to the Tigerair Australia website for regular updates (www.tigerair.com.au) as Tigerair expects a higher than usual volume of calls to the call centre as a consequence.

and please don't start with the "they should have paid the bribes". It's not helpful.

The whole Bali thing has been a fiasco since the decision to operate it under a separate AOC, a decision that has never been explained well enough to make me understand the reasons behind it in the first place.

When VA pilots began operating old VA 737's in Tiger livery as part of the Tiger operation under the VAI AOC (), something like this was always bound to happen.

We have been told very little other than what has occurred has done so as a result of the Indonesian Government imposing new administrative requirements. Take that to mean whatever you like, but the mind certainly does boggle.

To exercise the Australian rights to operate flights between Australia and Indonesia, you have to be a majority Australian owned airline. Indonesia has their own requirements to exercise their rights.

Tigerair was a majority foreign owned airline before it was bought by Virgin Australia. When Virgin Australia purchased the airline outright, Tiger remained a majority foreign owned airline. Virgin can push this issue, but the Indonesians may start to look more closely at the VAA / VAI corporate structure and determine that VAI is nothing but a shelf company owned and controlled 100% by a majority foreign owned entity in VAA.

Not so much the Govt, but some Army lads apparently had some fun mocking the Indonesian national emblem. Probably using it for target practice. Great offence was taken, and all Indonesian-Australian military co-operation was suspended. That mob are a pretty sensitive bunch of girls.

Could it be because some people at Qantas, so often denigrated in this forum, actually know what to do and what they are doing?

Yeah Ken, like the rocket surgeons who tried to start Jetstar Hong Kong, and don't tell me there wasn't any QF input.

Couldnt have happened to a better bunch of people, it's been an absolute joke that it's taken this long. As stated above other airlines can work it out but for some reason it's beyond the scope at TT/VA.

Anyone remember this fiasco. Round 2 it seems. The writing has been on the wall for about 5 years.

Not only that, they imported one of Ken's famed scalpel wielding "rocket surgeons", hot off the pad.

my bold
Sharp said in the note to staff Wilson was chief pilot for Qantas’s international and domestic operations from 2008 to 2012. Further, Wilson was chief operating officer and accountable manager for the Qantas air operator’s certificate (AOC) in 2012-2014.

“It is a great coup for Tigerair to have a person of Peter’s calibre and experience join our executive team to help support the next phase in our development.

“Peter brings a depth of business experience and will also play a key role within the senior executive team in regard to the broader business including strategy development, strategic priorities and business planning.”

Peter Wilson was Chief Pilot of Qantas in what can only be described as the lost years. 2008-2012.

Conspicuous in his absence while mainline operations were gutted in favour of the orange cancer.

If you want a sycophant then he's your man. You're welcome to him.

At what point is someone going to hold Borghetti accountable for his decisions and the never ending drain on cash that they are causing?

Wrong! Read the linked press report: it says Wilson starts on January 16, 2017. I will accept your apology.
