Qantas to get A321 NEO
 
Qantas are rumoured to be on the verge of announcing plans to introduce A321NEOs to shorthaul operations utilising some of Bruce Buchannan’s A320 bonanza buying spree options. Might even be as soon as the first half results.

Flown by...?

I’d also heard the short haul replacement type announcement was imminent. Tomorrow might be the day!

Well, all the sulky Ozmates returning from Knoteetingham with fresh Airboos ratings, obvs!

(and runs)

That would be awesome!
Fair Work would have everyone on the SH award.

No new aircraft
QF Domestic making record profits again, great news as there is no reason for the SH pilots to accept a sub standard deal
JQ Domestic also doing well
QF International profitable, hit by fuel costs but the increase in the first half will be fully recovered in the second half, so no reason to take flight plan fuel everywhere
smoke and haze around JQ international, nothing disclosed as usual, getting harder for them to deny that the 11 787’s that Qantas paid for wouldn’t earn more money in Qantas colours......I can’t understand how any business manager is dumb enough to leave such a valuable asset in a loss making entity. I suppose we all know what happens to a manager if they speak up.

Do you mean Jetstar NZ or Air NZ?

$2 Billion on fuel. (Up 27%).

I wonder if they had of just given the bonus without the strings attached what this would of been. I’m guessing the Joyce Juice would of been a lot less!

I can't see the ACCC or the NZ Commerce Commission agreeing to a JV between two major competitors

^^I’m pretty sure InZed was joking...

NEO 321? Incredible machine, Boeing have no answer nor do Virgin (at this stage).

Perfect timing with the SH eba. The old carrot, only issue is that SH 737 guys wouldn’t really want to fly a NEO.

Oh, it's EBA time, must have something to scare the worker's with...

Since when do we get a vote on fleet decisions? But you’re right about the timing: classic QF IR ploy.

Berealgetreal 21st Feb 2019 01:26

Just saying it looks impressive, was hoping Max10 could match the range. In Europe it’s opening up new routes.

The other point was that it might not be the carrot people might think.

Haha yes, a grenade, but with tongue firmly planted in cheek.

However, if they were to add “Link” on the fuselage and a few rows of lie-flat sleeper Business seats, then it’d be an entirely different story unfortunately :(

crosscutter 21st Feb 2019 02:03

And on which new routes would the ‘Link’ comfy seats be put on....because it wouldn’t be on an existing Mainline route unless Mainline capacity miraculously increased further.

There are currently rumours Qantas will be announcing an order of 737 MAX, A321neo, A330neo, A350, 788's returning from Jetstar and 777X. There was even a recent rumour of additional A380's (that rumour is probably dead now!)
Believe what you like, however AJ hasn't ordered any aircraft for Qantas since becoming CEO.
New aircraft orders are not good for his share price!!

crosscutter 21st Feb 2019 04:15

Correct! AJ also has a habit of over promising but under delivering. Potential aircraft orders...meh...real improvements in lifestyle and conditions..ding ding ding ding.

Nov 2020 may just reinforce what AJ Qantas tenure will be remembered for.
