Just a pity we’ve got to wait another 18 months, although hardly anyone’s seen him during the last 18 months! (except McLaren sales reps)

I wonder if the public humiliation from the NZ/QF cooperation announced at iata is the last straw... whoever that takes over ship will certainly have his/her work cut out for him/her.

Should have been sacked many moons ago. Whoever takes over will have to be nothing short of a miracle worker, although surely they can't do worse than he did.

CEOs always leave when it gets too hard !
Time for a pilot to run the show , while Mr Borghetti cruises the world on his luxury yacht !
maybe he can sell Tiger to JQ for $2 for a cool hundred per cent profit before he leaves !

About bloody time this one left... I’d stay away from yatchts if I was him, based on his performance at VA it’ll probably sink... or be a pilotless ship because he made the Captain sit down the back...

Just a shame he didn’t resign at the infamous Board Meeting where Air NZ CEO Luxton demanded his resignation. If he had gone the Virgin and Air NZ would still be cosy.

There are many examples that "a pilot" is often not a very good idea to have running the show - the latest fine example being Jetgo.

What are their terms of pay and conditions like?

Points stands there are far more recent examples of pilots running the show even in the last 10 years - that it is far from a given that they are capable of running the show.

not many examples of successful airlines run by bean counters either.
