By the time QF and Virgin are finished with REX any moneys they received by way of government grants will pale into insignificance compared to the losses they'll be posting. Personally I can't wait for the show to begin!

Recession means many will be chasing cheapest fares.

Rex & V@ have lower costs than wantus, so wantus will lose out & they wonít be getting any traffic anymore from Rex regional.

Rex & V2 wonít have union hassles that wantus already has.

Rex in its current form has over 90% Union representation

and make that almost 100% for V2 or V3 or whatever moniker it's given. And they will have plenty of Union hassles going forward.

What sort of insight does a travel agent have into a companies union membership? Stick to hot travel deals BNEA320.

not a travel agent, but obviously airlines need travel agents more than ever now. Piss off a travel agent & an airline might not get any bookings from them.

not a travel agent
Your website, snoworld.com.au, suggests otherwise. And your (very public) FB page is full of the same crap you relentlessly post here.

Also to add BNEA320's (getaway) right-wing ramblings on the Executive Traveller forum under the 'regular flier' account.

You literally post the exact same crap over there as you do here.

Same syntax, same aversion to using capitals, same made up acronyms (BUAs!!! )

You should have stuck to dentistry.

And so it starts just as it should. Will be more coming from QF I would think.

Competition at work as it should be. Will be interesting to see if Bain move in some way to place pressure on Rex

I donít think we will see much competition from Virgin. Competitive advances initially is normally loss making. There wonít much expansion, just a basic and solid capital network with second tier cities that are proven profit machines.

Be interesting to see how long these new routes last once the borders open and people can fly somewhere else, rather than just intrastate.

Not sure how just still having 1 airline service the route increases competition.these government morons who bleat & chest beat about how good they are should actually read what they write before putting their mouth into gear,we are just paying for idiots.

Can someone more in the know help shed light on where Rex plan to do all 737 training/endorsements/cyclic? What options do they currently have in Aus (considering borders are closed, that’s likely all they’ll have for a while)

Good question Timmy and I'm guessing the owners of most of the 73 sims in Australia won't be too helpful, although Ansett has a 73 classic sim that's low utilisation
