As at 10.50am on a Sunday during school holidays in two east coast states, they have completed a grand total of three flights and currently have none of their seven jets in the air. Yesterday, the first Saturday of Victoria and Queensland school holidays, they were finished all jet ops by 4.15pm having completed 22 flights for the day.

Slow and steady wins the race....

A moral applicable to fairytales and fables, and occasionally men's Olympic short track ice skating.

They took on a lot of VA crew who then left to return to the mother ship.

There is one in the hanger in ML down near the JQ 78 I seen, been there for a few days and there is the one in SY near the tower that has not moved in a few days, I’m guessing the one near the tower could be the one they got last week as it has a different orange on the tail. Must of used someone off the street that couldn’t mix the paint correctly.

Rex Put out a response headed "Rex responds to Market Speculation" by then saying they do not respond to Market Speculation.

Got me beat!

If you can’t fill a flight in these next 3 weeks you may as well give it up.

Wrong again, as usual. Jet network LF yesterday was 85.7 percent.

Notably, at their first attempt at running something even vaguely approaching a big boy schedule, with a grand total of 26 flights on the triangle, on-time departures fell into the dunny.

The facets of airline economics are far more complex than mere load factors. Yield is more crucial and none of us know that, and really can only make judgements off annual report financial figures not day to day load factors.

Ansett was recording 90% LFís in 99/00.

Thanks to Rex detailing their revenue for July in an ASX release on 2 August, you can calculate their RASK for jet ops for that month. It comes in at about $0.1125. That RASK was off the back of their claimed 86 percent LF for the month.

Flightradar24 suggests it did depart, hours not days late. Never let the truth get in the way of a good story though 😂
