I think that the ACCC will not make any decision on Alliance until the ownership of VARA is decided.

QF having removed themselves from Cobham may now not be so interested in contractors. The current industrial circumstances mean that they should do far better keeping everything in house and screwing down workers contracts than going outside.

was just looking at alliance website & Cooma listed as a port ? How come ? Don't think they fly there, at least yet.

F28s, which I believe are older version of F70s, used to fly into Cooma 2 or 3 decades ago.

no money in adhoc, but series of charters or RPT.

Maybe Alliance are taking over from Rex on SYD/Cooma ? 34 seats is not really enough.

What are new security rules regarding Cooma Airport ? Mt Hotham airport ?

Heard Cooma runway needs some "work".

Can a F70 still get in & out of there ? If so, economies of scale would work much better.

Don't get too excited, Alliance have done work into Cooma before, thats all. Why would they collude with REX to take over a Sydney route?

Profit upgrade released by Alliance to the ASX this week. Still thinking these guys and girls are in a very, very small world group of sizeable passenger airlines trading profitably. Possibly a group of one. Who would have ever thought.

That will be quite a fleet. How many did Virgin have when they used E170 and E190?

The simulator going to Brisbane as expected.

N974QQ arrived YBNE afternoon. Pretty clear it belongs to Alliance. Even from below.

There's also a chance that some of Qantas' international pilots and crew will work on the nimble 94-seat jets. "Importantly, Alliance is keen to provide the opportunity for our international pilots and cabin crew to operate the E190s given it will be some time before overseas markets fully recover," Gissing says.
Maybe an opportunity for some guys to get back in the air.....
