In this week's High Flyer blog for The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age, AusBT editor David Flynn asks readers to rate the efforts of Qantas and Virgin Australia in their fight for the hearts, wallets and bums of Australia's business travellers.
Qantas and Virgin Australia continue to cry 'game on!' in the continuing battle for Australia's business travellers.
The latest stoush sees a surge of extra seats hit the market as the airlines increase the number of daily flights and roll out larger aircraft for domestic routes.
And that's going to translate into cheaper fares at the pointy end of the plane.
The reason? Qantas is primed to protect its often-quoted 'line in the sand' of 65% market share as Virgin Australia edges ever closer to that same line, looking to woo lucrative corporate travellers over to their side.
Business travellers and frequent flyers are the winners in this turf war.
It's war which kicked up a notch almost one year ago when Virgin Blue was rebranded, or more accurately reborn, as Virgin Australia.
Since then we've seen better business class seats and service, better meals (both in the air and on the ground), upgraded lounges and, at least on Virgin's side of the trenches, a more rewarding frequent flyer scheme.
So this week we're asking readers to rate the airlines on their business travel offerings.
Head over to this week's High Flyer blog for more, and to write your own "business traveller's report card" for Qantas and Virgin Australia.
