Alan is not in the business to help competitors.
Alan refused to offer any services to Tiger, its not part of his job description to help Tiger Airways he said.
What if Singapore Airlines had refused to let QF use any of their equipment in repairing the A380 which was grounded in Singapore for months after the engine failure ?

I connected from Brisbane to Auckland and back on the same trip courtesy of Virgin Australia - cheap and nasty. Never again if I could help it.

Not sure if BNE-POM-BNE is supposed to be a "budget'" flight. VA contracted QQ to put one of their F100s on the run in place of one of VA's 737s. Kept the same VA flight numbers, not sure if the ticket prices stayed the same. If the experience was better than the VA BNE-AKL-BNE legs on a VA 737, it probably says more about VA.

Alliance Airlines soars to record result

  • 9:52AM AUGUST 8, 2019
The resurgence of the resources sector has helped lift Alliance *Airlines to the best annual result of the company’s 17-year history this week, with a $32.8 million profit before tax.

The figure was up 25.7 per cent or $6.7m on the previous year, while net profit improved $4.6m to $22.7m.

Fly-in, fly-out contracts with mining companies made up the lion’s share of Alliance’s flying revenue, worth $165.3m for financial 2019, up 8 per cent.

Wet leasing — where Alliance provide an aircraft and a crew for another airline — contributed $45.4m to the result, up 22 per cent, while *regular public *transport services generated $41.2m. Chief executive Lee Schofield said the result was underpinned by the continued focus of all Alliance employees in ensuring “the safe, on-time and cost-*effective provision of services to all of our clients”.

The Brisbane-based carrier retained a positive outlook for the financial 2020, with scheduled services expected to increase for a number of resource sector clients as a result of increasing mine production levels.

Qantas became Alliance’s single largest shareholder this year, in a move now being examined by the ACCC.
