Hi all,

Nice to e-meet you! A newbie here, hope you all are safe and healthy wherever you are.

Given that Singapore opted out of VA MK 2, I can't help but to think of the possibilities for them to merge with Qantas. Wonder what your thoughts are on this?

Cheers.

Merger has the same chance as international travel happening in June worldwide. Nice to dream, but totally impossible.

This idea has been floated multiple times including in 2004, 1990's and at other times too.

See Executive Traveller article about The Qantas-Singapore Airlines merger that almost happened...

Plus there is a article on ABC News/AFP on 22 June 2005 that outlines the challenges for a QF-SQ merger and for the most part they are still valid.
