2 Mill for a clapped out Saab?? You should be selling used cars champ You may want to ask someone from Network or Alliance about the 7 mill F100s, I'm sure either of them would sell you their entire fleet for less than 5 mill each.
Priceless

Politicians and regional Australia happy-Check
Closer to Singapore/Asian markets/outlook for further expansion-Check
Get rid of old Braz etc.-Check
Get Airbus/ATR to finance whole fleet deal. ATRs/E-Jets-Check

Just a few thoughts.

Rumour has it there might be something on jobs with Rex in the aviation section of tomorrow's Australian newspaper.

Quick search online finds a 1990 F100 for sale for 1,650,000 USD approx 2.4 mill AUD.

Considering multiple 737-300 are advertised online for around 3.5 to 4 mill AUD, one would assume F100s are generally worth less than this.

Oh, here we go.

Ok. I'll bite Nefarious. I'll answer in 1-2 sentences so you can follow it.

I think most with a professional aviation background would follow the points made in the post.

Perhaps you should really be putting your efforts in at school holiday time on studying. Once this COVID thing is over with you'll need to sit some exams and your essays will need to be more than 25 words or less. Best of luck with that BTW.

And as predicted, the whinging has started.

Talk about having your cake and eating it too.

What did you think would happen Rex when you come after the golden triangle?

Whinging all the way to the government as usual. If you can expand $30m into jets, I guess you could say you don’t need government subsidy either! Muppets!!!!!

How does the Australian Aviation journalist publish that article without questioning the hypocrisy of what Rex are doing?

This Rex ‘media release’ should never have seen the light of day....

The thing is Rex will get its way, it has conclusively proven it is driving government policy when it comes to government funding to the sector. Having the temerity to put out a whinge like that means they don’t fear any repercussions.

Rex are a disgrace. Do they have sole rights to the route? No. So they are after their own monopoly. Australia wanted competition, it has it. Quit whinging. Things a bit different now the shoe is on the other foot isn’t Sharp.

I cant believe how anti REX people are on here, actually anti everybody unless its QANTAS, I would say most if not all REX employees are really happy that the senior management are trying to protect their jobs. Lets not forget if REX ceases to exist then there will be a heap of pilots,engineers, hosties, groundies and office wallers looking to replace you in your job. Chee.....

Arnold I’m pretty sure most of us want to see a thriving Rex as the ‘service’ it provides are necessary for Australia. Were people are getting quite rightly Poppa Oscar is they seem to have no problem crying poor getting massive amounts of money for their size in an effective monopoly market using their obvious political connections. Then they come out and say we can get the money for a 10 jet operation! If they took NO money from the government and then did it fair play to them. At the moment they have a National party muppet...I mean puppet protecting them and funding them as they do it. There’s your problem.

Big fan of corruption Arnold? The problem for REX is that Joyce does have connections. If Sharp keeps poking him in the eye, he with right screw you. One nationals minister won’t be enough to save your Job. Be careful.

It’s not the first time Rex has whinged to the ACCC about Qantas entering their territory.

How do you know they will lose money? Are you privy to the accounts?

anyway, I’m pleased to se AJ doing everything to ensure the continued employment of QLink employees. Sorry it conflicts with your expectations.

Rex have said they're averaging 40 pax a week total on the route, QF is putting 216 seats a week into the market.
Doesn't take a genius to work out there's not much demand.

are you actually this delusional, Rex has been gifted more cash than any other company in aviation during Covid.

This is a free market based outcome, and Yet Rex claims free market competition is not permitted?

rex was handed $54 million in a grant tax free- not a loan. This is more than Alliance Airlines before TAX profit for the last financial year, how much more support do we have to give this outfit?
