Yeah, because itís the out of state premieres choosing not to do a short sharp lockdown ala ADL to burn out this outbreak.
Every virologist is saying they should have done it a week ago, and going off Adelaideís data, it would be well and truly extinguished by now.

Instead we now have alerts for the one or two people whoíve been through Circular Quay...

Rex had invested $45-50 million in two training facilities only to have graduates “pilfered” by larger carriers, he said.
Here we go again with this complete BS. Since when does REX legally own anybody?? How come they don't say people resigned from REX so they could triple their salary?

Pilfer

intransitive verb
: steal especially : to steal stealthily in small amounts and often again and again

What's to say either BN or ML - or anywhere else in Oz - won't have some sort of an outbreak that "closes things down" rightly or wrongly?

Until you have a national approach, one where ALL states and territories remain open and deal with outbreaks as best they can it will be an ongoing clusterf*ck of uncertainty.

Now to what extent some states may or may not have ramped up to deal with outbreaks - now THAT's an interesting question.

And just like that Melbourne has just recorded 3 Community Transmission cases within the last few minutes. Letís hope they keep a lid on it this time.

No I don't. His political power stops in Canberra whereas the border decisions stop in the State Capitals. Even a sharpie can't blot out the relevant sections of the Constitution.

you must be hoping for a job at high cost qantas. Qantas can't afford to discount the triangle.

QANTAS can't afford not to discount on these routes. They are not going to allow market share be permanently taken. Use the cheap Rex fares while you can but don't buy to far into the future would be my advice.

think Qantas won't discount but rather offer other incentives like quadrupple ff pts, free things(that cost them very little but have a higher perceived value), Qantas Club, upgrades, free offpeak tickets, etc.

Rex will have much lower costs. They don't have excess staff sitting around doing SFA like Qantas does,

I wouldn't be buying Qantas tickets either.

SFA, like modern day travel agents. Expedia with a pulse.

Have you ever actually worked airside Craig? Or is that just an observation from the departure lounge?

didn't Qantas have a lot of employees per aircraft, just like the old Virgin did ?

Think Rex will have less employees per aircraft, being paid less as well.

There's a lot Expedia don't sell.

The smarter travel agents don't even try to compete with the likes of expedia & sell things expedia don't sell.
