IMO Qantas will happily leave the punters who want to save a few hundred dollars to other carriers they will charge a 30% premium and probably operate with a 90/95 load factor if Perth/London is anything to go by.

It'll all be people burning their airmiles if you ask me................ but it's probably a reasonable step for Qantas to take

Problem is you offer non-stop then you are restricted to traffic to/from Australia only and you are competing with other airlines - QF won't have a monopoly on non-stop to/from Australia if someone else can make it pay as well.

Or as one a2 Milk observer mused, “all reward, no risk”.
Seems Dear Carla learned a thing or two gouging from the Qantas trough.
Little Napoleon is a furlong ahead in the all reward zero risk stakes...
With the self imposed deadline rapidly approaching, book makers have shortened the odds of another calendar year of Little Napoleon's reign and not an aircraft order in sight.

Qantas has not yet placed a binding order
Hold the press, the calendar year ends with not an order, a commitment or anything else...

Just column inches for the scrap book and something for Little Napoleon's new favourite to publish, thanks Patrick.

How many more QF threads can you tie off with the same utterances Mr De?

As many as Wee Napoleon provides the impetus for, I would suggest!

As they say in journalism 'the story that keeps on giving'. Would, that it be different

"Management successfully juiced two and a half years’ worth of PR gimmicks that distracted from Qantas’ chronic fleet underinvestment," he said. "Now pilots will be cast as villains. You have got to admire the gall.”
Suffice to say, Mr Ferguson won't be attending selected analyst briefings nor receiving a Christmas card.

He joins the International Council of Clean Transportation and fund manager Mr Roger Montgomery calling Qantas for what it is: Negligent.

Chronic under investment in fleet is a result of not a solitary aircraft order in over a decade.

With the sun setting on sunrise...

Qantas need a rudder.

How many posts can you type and say nothing factual or nothing that contributes to the discussion.
