I'd be interested to test current perceptions around Rex as a business travel option.
And an article form The Guardian for context: https://www.theguardian.com/business/2019/jul/05/rex-airline-denies-claims-of-rust-on-planes-propeller

If Rex was really that bad CASA would have stopped then from flying. While their aircraft maybe on the old side they have operated relatively without incident for a long time. They are trusted by defence and other organisations. I would take what is the quickest route.

Read news.com.au and you will believe that your Rex flight will drop out of the sky.

Anything reported in News Corp, I would take with a grain of salt.

I have other reasons I try to avoid REX mostly to do with luggage limits and past experiences with luggage being damaged.

Rex is a bit of a strange beast (take a look on their website's investor relations annual reports and the strange titles they give them ... 2007/08 is titled "Annus Horribilis", 2008/09 is "Annus Horribilis II", 2013/14 is "Last Man Standing" etc).
