So operating 27 routes off the bat as they have said with 2 aircraft leaving 1 spare. I’d hate to be those crew.

SHVC - fair enough mate, but Plleeeeaaase, don't tell me about VA and recovery. I have been stuffed around so many times in the last 12 months by this outfit with cancelled flights, obsenely late flights, and bags arriving 3 days late. Recovery???????????? Not that mob mate. No offense at all intended to the the crews.

And now that Bonza looks up and running I suppose we can now be expected to be bored by Popa Joe counting loads again. Spare ,me.

Rod. I was calling out Sharpie’s bull**** as did many others, coming out daily claiming his operation was doing fantastic, Alan and co better all watch out. Remember the bit when he said you and me, pilots at the opposition, are all just overpaid with too many entitlements, with plans to ‘rip away those entitlement’s you pilots have built up over the years’. The prick needed to be called out. His operation was doing terrible, and to this day remains the worst performing upstart the country has seen.

Anyway, the market pulled back capacity, the others crashed operationally (still are) , Rexy sold their arses out to travel agents, demand boomed, and things have now improved. Don’t forget, when the capacity comes back in, Rex gets burnt.

I don’t believe Bonza Management carry the same blood type as Rex. Seems to be a proper airline. While the route map is questionable, the market is different vs 2019 and might be able to take it at the moment. I wish them well, I just don’t want a repeat re Tiger. Started off great, then Ken left, wheels fell off, place went to ****.

BONZA mate, how good, that’s the spirit up and running despite the negativity from self proclaimed aviation experts.

Given it a crack with Shaza and Bazza.

May you continue to expand and grow, it is great for Straya.

A rising tide lifts all ships. Having more employment opportunities in AUS is only a good thing - if anything it makes our current employers work harder to keep and entice us.

I hope they do well! And shame on everyone who is hoping for their demise.

Perhaps they are the smart ones though. Perhaps they are not.

However...who remembers Ozjet, Strategic, Air Australia, Skyairworld, Jetgo, Tiger Airways? Why it this outfit so different?

I hope they do well, a very risky time to be launching a holiday destination focussed airline when the economy is tanking.

Interest Rate 0.25% - 3.25% and predicted to rise, Wage growth stagnation, The Big 2 states property price falls, Elon only lost a few Billion, Power/food/fuel record highs.

All is good.

Interest rates high and rising, record inflation, shortage of workers, property prices falling and the IMF predicting world wide recession. The way the inflations gets under control is by making people hurt financially so they stop spending, they will stop spending on things like ‘holidays’. But hey it could all turn out well, we just don’t know.
