What if Qantas’ plan isn’t to own Alliance, but to prevent Virgin from owning it?

If the ACCC knocks back Qantas on competition reduction then it would make it virtually impossible for Virgin to...

Not just Queensland, SA, NT, and a very significant WA market share too!

VA will be scrambling for a response. A lot of their Qld flying is done by QQ!

Wait till we get the hundreds of catering/fuelling trucks that once passed under 737NG winglets meeting 737Max downwards winglets! I'm told the lower section unbolts for easy removal.

If you test a crew member and get a positive, surely you should keep testing, who was that crew member likely to be drinking with? His/her mates.

JB has indicated that he one announcement left, on the same scale as the BNE-ASP and HBA-PER route plans so don't expect anything as big as a widebody order. Max10 will replace 332 on transcon.

"Flying from London to Australia is notoriously expensive"
