Qantas Angels...Hello, Are You There?

How did this negative story slip through?

If Qantas is the spirit of Australia, that spirit needs to lift its game

It must be the week between Xmas and New Year when the Angels and the Street and all the rest of the Campus is enjoying a well deserved break.

Perhaps a few complimentary upgrades and the odd Chairmans Lounge invitation will see a retraction in the New Year!

And just for a bit of balance, Jetstar gets a "Must Try Harder" grading as well!

The writer has a point - what happened to the small amenities with the toothbrush / eyeshade and socks? The cost cutting for a premium airline is glaring at times

Qantas is on my avoid list for the reasons in her article.

BA, KLM and Air France are just as bad.

Must be the reason the Blackrock Group sold their substantial holding in QF pre Christmas. Shares now down $1.50 since the most recent high. This; despite the share buy back of 15,694,985 shares worth almost $89,000,000. God only knows what the share price today would be without the buy back.

What's the big deal about a poor quality toothbrush, miniscule tube of toothpaste and crappy eyeshades.
Bring your own - not hard.

Strangely Mr Joyce also announced in which quarter Qantas would turn the corner.

Like a town crier ringing the bell and warning of impending doom, Joyce just kept coming out with the bad news. It culminated on August 28, 2014, with a record statutory loss of $2.8 billion.
At the time, Joyce rang the bell over the "confronting" loss facing Qantas and warned of the urgent need for "accelerated transformation". Incredibly, he predicted the business would be profitable in the first half of financial year 2014-15.

And he was right – the Qantas annual general meeting in Perth on Friday will hear a story of an airline transformed, from a record loss to a profit of $789 million – an amazing $3.5 billion turnaround. The prophet of doom is now promoting fat profits.
Fortunately for all insiders the Long Term Incentive Plan recognised that management discretionary timing of a fleet impairment would see an 'amazing transformation' Spend capital buying back share, pump the EPS...

Might as well pack an Esky and a few tinnies and be done with in flight service.

Aeroflot used the same business model years ago.
