Sharp vs Rex

Doing the rounds on social media, apparently Sharp is taking Rex to the ACCC over pinching their passengers on the Wynyard to King Island route.

Firstly, so it is clear, based on the comments on another thread, I have no desire to see REX go under....
HOWEVER

good on sharp. Rex were predatory pricing on routes to and from MTG and were a primary reason OíConnors went under. If they are doing the same again to sharps, they should be held to account. You canít aggressively attack another operator and then bitch and moan when a route of your own (Orange) sees competition.

All the best to Sharps on this.

And yet when Qantas starts servicing a Rex route, it's the end of the world!

Talk about having your cake and eating it too!

Watch out, when this strategy doesn't work they'll start playing the racist card.

I dont think Sharp has an ex minister working for them or mates with the current transport minister. Corruption is alive and well in Australia.
