It's January 2016 and airline executives around the world are looking back on 2015 with the fondest of fond memories. Due to sustained record low fuel prices the accounts are brimming with cash after a year of positive cash flow, debt has been reduced and investment grade ratings have been restored. The CEO and board of directors want you and your executive team to come up with a game changing strategy to invest to keep you ahead of the competition, where do you start...? (This hypothetical scenario can be applied to any market / airline and ignore the wider economic implications of low oil prices)

I'm pretty sure that the route is operated 4 weekly out of Sydney, a 777-300ER, but if you're unlucky enough, then it will be a A330-200.

Actually, if this thread is just a fantasy wishlist, I'd like to announce that in Q3 2015, Qantas released CYO breakfasts - two eggs, condiments and other items delivered to your seat with a hotplate, cook it your way.

If I was at Qantas, I would first of all try cutting Emirates off, even though that might mean me being fired, but then I would try pivoting to CX but well CX don't want Qantas so my bet would be MH but well people are scared of MH so I guess I just have to go back to EK.
Correction: Qatar would be a better option than Emirates I think.
