And for any future attempts at Qatar bilateral expansion, watch Alan magically appear as a ‘consultant’ in the submission period on the QF books.

He keeps banging on about this being the ‘most competitive market in the world’, that is, on Alan’s terms however.

The sooner that horrible little man packs it in and goes back there, the better.

I worked for Qantas to fly. My political beliefs dont belong at work nor should this CEO be using Qantas as a political platform. Disgraceful behaviour.

If I expressed my political beliefs at Qantas today they would dismiss me.

No they wouldn't because that would be illegal.

They don't care. They would still do it. Ask those 1,700 rampies.

Margaret Court famously boycotted them too in 2017, she didn’t start a trend however.

I wondered what frequent flyers would think of this campaign so I went to the Australian Frequent Flyer forum for QF and saw that this topic hasn’t generated any interest. It’s a non story for them, either as a positive or a negative.

It’s interesting Mundine made that announcement on Sky because I found a thread on the AFF forums where the frequent flyers were mostly supportive of QF’s decision to drop Sky TV from lounges.

It's almost as if Sky News creates a rage baiting echo chamber that the general public have no time for.

Yes indeed. Who'd have known that those who crawl out from under their rocks to watch Sky News also hang out here.

Mike Carlton sums it up nicely I think.

5). Sky News talking points

They're the guys who say politics shouldn't be in aviation but chew your ear off at 2am over a man wearing a dress. I wish they would match their outrage to the IR changes over the last decade or so, stand up for their junior cohort by not voting in b scales or any steaming pile of **** EBAs that only benefit the top.


...But hey, let's talk about identity politics.

Mike Who? couldn't sum up two single digit numbers, unless the problem was presented to him in terms of drinks (now, so far for breakfast you've had three Martinis followed by two G&Ts ...).

Wholesale branding of better than half the voting public as racists or f***wits isn't going to move the needle on the referendum vote towards Yes, the exact opposite is more likely.

hot takes nobody asked for.

Imagine thinking grouping people into racists and f*ckwits because they disagree with you is a balanced take. Not an echo chamber at all *face palm*

Personally I’ve got no interest in Sky News and what it might have to say. But anyone who thinks describing those of opposing views as ‘racists’, ‘********’, ‘crawling out from under rocks’, etc, will do anything to attract people to your side of the argument is delusional, not to mention spectacularly arrogant.

That's where debate is these days. It's polar. Either you agree with me, or I hate you. Since many times the pundits have no rational arguments to support their case, they just hide behind name calling.

Those on the No side have called the yes side racists too.
