Lol champ.....

Why are you alluding to the fact they may not have the 140's in storage?

Work for the leasing company? No? Then how could you know!

Maybe they do maybe they don't or maybe they only have 1 in storage or maybe 2?

Not having a go just curious

Do you remember that part when I said "not having a go, just asking"?

Well the funny thing is that I actually meant it. I'm genuinely curious that's all

If you want to just make smug remarks then that's fine lets play. Again was a genuine question.

You always seem to assume I work for Jetgo and as I have told you before....I don't but hey don't let the truth interfere with a good story inside your world. Bro I'm on the other side of the country to them

Lol "old boy" what is it with you and your inane terms of reference?

I'm aware that they have been "coming" and they may well be will still be coming but my question how do you know?

Could the 20 June launch date be looking a little shakey? Is 3 weeks enough to import an airliner and have it approved to operate airline ops?

Surprised??? Well since there's a 135 sitting lonely over by the mineralogy jets at BNE, I'd say not.

Can you name the airline which will shut down operations on its newest route for a month because its 'swapping airports'? Who comes up with such a line expecting it to be a believeable explanation?

You stop flying, lose revenue & dump your loyal customers because you're changing airports? Now there's a brilliant business strategy.

Too bad they just can't tell the truth. I hope the investors aren't fed the same BS.

Still only three airframes on the CASA register. In 2 weeks Dubbo-Melbourne comes off suspension. But why the suspension anyway? Not, by chance, to get in on the significant charter work on offer from the Federal election?

Election July 2. Melbourne restarts July 3! No new airframes, but new destinations. Suspect a route to be dropped shortly?

NS,

They aren't doing any election work. The bulk is done by Alliance.

Check the new schedules post July 3, new schedule times means it works with 2 frames. 2 hard-working frames, but it works.

Why the beef?

Going Nowhere, fair question but no beef as such. Just that if you see something in the public arena you don't agree with, could be done better or is even being done well, why not speak up. Nothing wrong with public review and public opinion, particularly if it leads to a better standard or service. That's all.

Let's face it, these guys have a great opportunity, are about as 'untouchable' as any new entrant is ever likely to be in the Australian commuter sector and they just don't seem to get out of first or second gear. We can debate the intricacies of their past two year performance but, unlike customers, business and investors reward results not effort. To be frank, I think this team can launch an airline, they can operate an airline, I'm not sure they can grow an airline. Contrary to the airline's earlier projection of a ten aircraft fleet, maybe this is now all they wish to operate, just three airframes. If so, don't be surprised if its not a long term play which would be an enormous, lost opportunity for competition and growth in Australian aviation.
