Sharp and Lim - a dud duo

You mean like when AJ went crying to the Govt a few years ago saying they needed bailing out and then posted a bumper profit a year later?

It's all b*llshit PR and it's not only the little guys who do it.

Nice to see a fair and honest review of the Rex B737 business class even if the journo was comp'd like all other media: https://www.executivetraveller.com/r...business-class

Can't wait for Rex to begin flying SYD-PER so GT can gush over how great Rex is, at risk of losing his Qantas Chairmans Lounge membership of course!

The next headwind in the industry is looking like its going the way of this soaring oil price.

Hopefully Rex are spending more time analysing this vs Virginís sandwiches.

They donít have much (well zero) ability to wear any fuel surges.

Itís back to pre pandemic levels. Production is not increasing in the near term.

American raised concerns at recent earnings call saying all eyes are on it this quarter.

Analysts expect it to crack $100 by years end.

Rex can not sustain prices that high.

Analysts huh. I guess those guys must know a thing or two about prices.

The price is indeed approaching pre pandemic levels, with low demand it cannot rise much higher. Northern winter is ending so demand for crude will be dropping.

We shall see, let’s revisit this in six months eh?

Yes, let’s do that. Oil, like any commodity has its price manipulated by puppet masters. Prices are decided depending on a number of agendas, so nothing surprises me. Inflated oil prices are always just a middle eastern war away, and America does have another President who is the lapdog to the military industrial complex. True demand is certainly lower at this moment than this time 18 months ago, yet prices are rising again. I only checked yesterday and I think it was $61 per barrel or thereabouts. Anyway, if it hits $100 per barrel we will have some serious issues as not many airlines can break even at $100 per barrel.

And yet life goes on..........well not in the present, ninnies and babies have seen to that. The most important factor facing aviation and society in general is making sure all our precious boomers can get through these critical times. Mobilising mental health services cos when they get through their present health crisis (fear, paranoia, look at me) they're going to need counselling for the inevitable PTSD.

'save all boomers'

Hey brah, there are threads full of it on prune, if it has no place, what's it doing here? Plenty of opportunity for it to be deleted but it hasn't been.

And I think everybody has had an absolute GUTFUL of it, yet it goes on and on and on and on and..............................

Best bit is this - if you don’t like it, don’t read it. It’s called exercising your free will. Don’t complain about it, just move on. Such a simple principle that even a child can do it!

Meanwhile, the afternoon sun on my back, smell of the earth, a little water on the garden and the dulcet tones of David Gilmore and Pink Floyd circa 1973. I'm feeling comfortably numb. Life is good.

Don't forget a bit of Roger Waters, as well as his solo stuff his gigs are doing a bit more Floyd. Waters says Gilmore is a genius, he'd have 3 guitars trying to cover what Gilmore did on one

Well, you gotta look at who and what you're offending, there's not a lot of intellectual capital there. So the offence threshold is way down.
