Well it certainly kills the pilot labour market. No wonder Rex are keen on removing any serious competition on that front.

Rex are ok with QF buying QQ aren’t they? So what’s the latest on the purchase or not?

They will announce the final decision on the 17th November.

I wonder what the hidden agenda is over at Rex land for throwing support behind this deal. Seems like they donít want to upset QQ. I assume Alliance gives NJE engineering and spare parts support. Gotta keep that line open I guess.

QF Buys QQ they stop doing VA work then REX is hoping to fill the Void, my guess!!

I was going to add similar, never think the competition is doing you a favor by supporting you. There's always an angle that will benefit them somehow.

Rex will do what works for Rex, not what works for the entire market, or what is in the best interest of consumers. They seem to take the same approach with its employees also.

NJE have their own engineering and spare parts arrangement for the E190. Have done so since day one I believe.

REX are ok with the QF/QQ tie up provided access to the the E190/Q400 simulator remains available for NJE and are supposedly in discussions to have a second E190 or Q400 sim located at their own sim centre in SYD along side the Saab and 737 sims in stead of BNE or MEL.

There are other reasons as well but that was one of the main ones that I recall from The recent town hall with Rex/NJE management.

Likely intrigued by Rex and itís late supportive submission (cough cough hidden agenda) vs everyone else who was not supportive.

If the steady stream of pilots leaving Alliance, from both fleets, is not stemmed they will have problems meeting contract obligations.

I think they were hoping to mask that issue (along with others) and hand ball it on to QF. The longer the decision drags on the more difficult itís becoming to maintain the coat of polish.

Seasonal only. Jetstar is now all year round. I understand both will run over the holiday period.

I believe the Fokker guys in Brisbane have just realised what sort of bad position they are in! Good luck guys.

Let people keep leaving all the carriers- mainly Network, Alliance, Cobham etc for the States or Virgin and Qantas, it'll have to drive up salaries and conditions for those that are still there surely? Not to say they're bad, but there is always room for improvement?

170 Jets

So if this goes through is it little wonder Mainline drivers aren't so warm and fuzzy to other subsidiaries in the coffee shops around the country

Subsidiaries (excluding JQ)
F100 54
A220 29
A320 24
E190 63

Mainline
A321XLR 20
