Shazza??!! Seems like the Jingoism dial on Marketing-Spiel-o-matic 2000 goes all the way to 12.

Any bets on what they'll christen the next one? Shagga, perhaps.

I’m sure “Bazza” and “Dazza” aren’t far behind…

Applications only closed last Thursday.

However applications for flight crew keep closing then re opening the week after.

Surely it will be Bazza or Gazza or Wozza.

Maybe they can get Michelle and Ferret to perform at the launch party.

Nothing new in that video and information stated at the beginning is repeated again about 3/4’s in.
This article posted 5 hours ago says October start.

‘Frames’ again. Wasn’t 3 accounts enough for you buddy.

By the way…you could have a million ‘aircraft’ at the ready, Canberra has you by the balls in the meantime and you ain’t moving until they say so. Rule number 1 is don’t become pushy in the AOC process. That will cost you many months more with more questions being asked.

That's a pretty impressive CV Bonza CEO, Tim Jordan, has on Linkedin. I can see why PoppaJo is trembling in his R.M Williams.

https://www.linkedin.com/in/tim-jordan-901b0b12/

Tim Jordan is a founder and CEO of Bonza, the only independent Low Cost Carrier (LCC) in the Australian domestic market with scheduled commercial operations expected to start in the third quarter of 2022 (subject to necessary regulatory approvals). Tim has more than 25 years of air transport experience most notably in low-cost airline operations.

Prior to his current role with Bonza, Tim was the Managing Director of FlyArystan the first LCC in Central Asia based in Kazakhstan. Tim successfully planned and launched the new airline which now has the largest market share of traffic in the Kazakh domestic market. As a consequence of FlyArystan, Kazakhstan is now one of the fastest growing domestic aviation markets in the world.

Tim is also the former Chief Commercial Officer of Philippines based LCC Cebu Pacific Air where he led the airline through a major transformation while also overseeing significant profitable market growth for both domestic and international operations. Cebu Pacific Air is now the domestic market share leader in the Philippines.

Prior to Cebu Pacific Air, Tim was head of Commercial Distribution for Virgin Blue Airlines in Australia where he oversaw the successful commercial growth of the airline from 15 to 48 aircraft. During Tim’s tenure, both Cebu Pacific and Virgin Blue had profit margins that were amongst the highest in the world for aviation. Both Cebu Pacific and Virgin Blue went on to offer highly successful IPO's, with the Air Astana Group owned FlyArystan now expected to also IPO in 2023.

That’s great monkey. But CASA won’t sign off on it without a Head of Safety.

So PoppaJo you appear to have given up on REX bashing (because they have been doing well and discredited virtually every negative you have posted) and have turned your attention to Bonza yet again

Noticed you have had little to say regarding yet another monster loss at QF/JQ

Quit trolling people. Mods tend to take a dim view of it.

Mick did you offer the same advise to PoppaJo ?
This guy accuses myself of being BNE320 and having multiple accounts
This guy can not possibly come to this conclusion without trolling me

To that end
MickG and PoppaJo seem to post around the same time and also have very similar views
Could these 2 accounts be the same person ?
