Hahahaha, sadly so true

In today’s Australian, Sharpie is sounding more desperate than ever. He has accused QF predatory behavior for it decision to move into smaller routes, threatening the airline could fold when commonwealth assistance ends in March. He desperately asked the ACCC to intervene. Mr Sharp failed to address Rex bold move into the golden triangle trying to lure valuable passengers from QF, JQ and VA. Who is the predator.

Appears the walls at Rex are being exposed, they’re f$&ked and have spent to much cash just realizing this jet op should of been out on the shelf for a few yrs or until the administration of VA to have been completed.

Right on cue hey? Not-so-Sharp blubbering to the media in typical REX style. Bunch of sooks. He seems to be quite matey with Frydenberg also, continuously referring to him as ‘Josh’. As was pointed out by Fran, only 1 out the 5 routes REX are pulling out of has Qantas flying it. Only 8 out of the 26 new routes that Qantas has starting flying in the past year are REX routes. Then you have REX entering a new market on 1 March that will compete with Qantas and VA, yet Sharp reckons that’s ok due to the passenger volumes. My god they are the biggest hypocrites and crying sooks that you will meet.

It’s COVID John, these are unprecedented times. Your incompetent mates in Government shut down the economy and sent thousands of small businesses to the wall. If REX fails then blame your mates in Government along with yourself and your CEO for making poor strategic decisions that cost you dearly. Clown.

SAAB crew just told they have to park 30
minutes walk from the terminal in Sydney while the B737 crew park at T2.

Wonder how long before the picketing starts.

I think you'll find that he is always referred to as Josh in political circles, even by his political adversaries. Doesn't really relate to his 'buddyship' with Sharp.

Probably burning bridges as they love doing. I have heard EBA negotiations are turning sour again for the Saab crew. The union offered a pay freeze but it sounds like the company wants a cut instead.

Joyce pokes the REX

Snippet from an article today in which Joyce talks about the sooks at REX;

"Rex put these colourful press releases out every now and again. I sometimes think they have Donald Trump writing for them," he said.

"You know, they're very Trumpian in a lot of ways. Very funny I have to say. We get a good laugh out of them."Mr Joyce said Rex had threatened to pull out of regional routes 13 times in recent years.

"They keep on threatening it. It's the boy that cries wolf all the time. And they've pulled off one route in that period of time," he said.The Qantas boss said his airline would be more than happy to plug some of the gaps if Rex vacated the routes.He also whacked the regional carrier for complaining about the financial support Qantas had received during the coronavirus pandemic, saying Rex had pocketed seven times more, based on the size of the businesses."

”So I don't think they can complain about government support," Mr Joyce said.


Ha Ha Ha. So true. Idiots Sharp and Lim, they need to grow up and grow a set. Sooks.

Personally, I would like to thank REX very much, without doubt they are the best airline in Australia, thanks to them, 3 airfares booked for a total of $377.50 on Virgin thanks Sharpy, legend.

It was a massive paid advertisement. That’s all ACA and similar commercial media shows are, pure product placement dressed up as news. Not one actual critical bit of journalism, just let Sharp spout whatever fantasy rubbish he wants like the typical politician he is.

I love the bit when he said Covid was the perfect time to start the airline because all the problems like pilot shortage and gate space aren’t there anymore, did you forget about the whole no passengers thing too John?

Exactly Doc.

REX increased its half year profit by 45% to $9.9m. So Mr Sharp should hardly be complaining about an unfair playing field as VA went bust and QF’s profits are down by around $800m. So what will be the next install me t of the ‘Sharp and Lim’ show? A guest appearance on an Oprah special? Maybe a direct appeal to the IMF to give their airline money? ****
