When do the unaudited, unverified, before tax, before this and that, weekly results start coming out? How much profit did Rex make yesterday? More to the point, who actually cares and why are they even bothering.

I assume they are trying to ramp up some publicity to raise some heads in the PE world? Doesn't the chair want to retire soon? Can someone please come in and buy us out thanks comes to mind.

Guess I must be on the board
Probably at 777 Partners as well because I comment positively about AB

REX was roundly berated on here when they dared to want to take it to QF/JQ and VA, yes on the back of VA doing an AN, but had to adapt when Bain saved the VA brand
Regular quotes like "they are flying around with single digit loads" and "jet ops last 12 months"
Who gives a toss if they post monthly updates, even if not 100% accurate, it's a guide to how they are doing
If REX find new metal in the short to medium term then that's great for everyone as they seem to be doing a good job for their customers, but do need more frequency and to be able to cover more routes

They are also providing another option for 737 crew and for those that fly props, now they at least have a path in house to jets which could stifle QFs poaching practises

Moving forward
Aside form more 738s, I think it's getting to the point that REX looks to use the Cobham purchase to rethink it's regional fleet
The one size fits all 340s needs to be rethought
Perhaps 10 or so E175s to mix in with their 6 E190s to provide fleet commonality and adding a 6 business class to give a point of difference over QLink and perhaps looking for something around the 19 seat mark for their thinner routes, maybe even the Cessna SkyCourier or N219

Yeah that sounds like a good game Timmy Tee, let's all hang shit on Deano for showing positivity, and for being up for new entrants in the aviation scene. How dare he. He should be a gloomy old negative doomer like you and Papa Joe and Mr app. And spare me the rhetoric about all the bullsjit Rex execs pinch to the media and the ASX. If you know anything about share price movement of a publicly listed company you'd get it.

​​​​​​​A point of difference to the QantasLink E190s with business class seats?

And so when the monthly PR pieces (I mean ASX updates) stop, is it fair to assume they are then losing money and are unprofitable?

As far as I know QF are not using E190s on regional routes such as
Albury, Wagga, Dubbo, Port Maq, Coffs etc

I love their constant updates. Their wording is hilarious. Like the high school temp is putting them together.

“The travelling public has been crying out for our reliable, affordable services and these new additions will help to alleviate the situation.

Yes way! Anyway good luck to them crewing it. Even the major except QF are struggling, VA needing triple digit numbers. Last AFAP msg I read had the Rex 73 guys were not happy with the T&Cs, Rex lols like it will have to come to the party with the cash and more.

There was an expressions of interest last year but ever since 40 odd saab crew left within a month, they can't afford to move them across.

The ones I know of were not even the most senior as there's a few SAAB drivers not interested in the move, so a few down the chain got a chance.

So they’re investing in old metal, not sure where they’re putting them and live in a fantasy land where they think ppl are screaming for them.
