Well, rather than being pushed it seems that he has chosen to go for another CEO job. He has been pretty prominent around Perth, and arguably has lifted the profile of the airport as a corporate...

I can't see them just buying Bravo. The core FIFO op is a goldmine of solid, guaranteed revenues, a Fokker fleet of scale (with the path towards replacing them with E190s), plus buying a much larger...

That was always the plan once Cobham was acquired by a US private equity firm back in 2020. They want to hold the defence businesses and tried once before to sell the whole operation, and now have...

The thing is that the ACCC looked into Qantas's first strike in taking the 20% slice of Alliance for three years, and ultimately cleared it, knowing full well that Qantas bought that stake with a...

Because it's about different horses for different courses - it's not a one-size fits all approach. Some mine strips (or other regional airports like ALH) can take A320s, others are limited to F100s...

I think I read recently that VARA was taking another two A320s to add to its fleet. At some point they will need to make a call on the F100s, however all the cheap E190-E1s have now been taken up by...

True, but Tiger also shot themselves int the foot with that, because the public saw all the operational problems there and it worked against their branding efforts.

If they did it was a pretty massaged way of doing it, methinks. Some of the major lessors trimmed their fleet or took large impairments at the start of the pandemic, which led to big losses in one...

Unlikely - QQ's management got blindsided when QF bought in, and I would say that there is a decent chance that the ACCC will force them to sell once their investigation is concluded.
