• Whatever side you are on I think it’s time for Joyce to retire and run IHG which includes Aer Lingus and let someone else have a shot at growing Qantas post Covid. Too close to Hrdlicka at BainVirgin and too comfortable....ten years is enough already. Need someone who has vision who can wor...

  • Does anyone know if Boeing has announced funeral details for the 737 Max? I’d like to send flowers.

  • ....sorry anything with MAX in the name will be shunned by the public. Qantas has 99 Airbus A321 LR coming for Jetstar...is Virgin going to risk their clients choosing Qantas because ‘Virgin has those Max planes that crash’. That’s why Virgin cancelled the 737 Max order they had...

  • Brilliant news...now ScottyFromMarketing can approve Qatar Airways flights to Brisbane and seasonal flights to the GC during the massive Arab Months celebration on the Gold Coast (OOL now has ILS) Most Aussies outside of the GC don’t realise 60,000 super rich Arabs descend on the GC every y...

  • Good to see another competitor but Australia needs a massive competitor to wipe the smirk off Alan Joyces’ face. A new domestic carrier bankrolled by Qatari Sovereign Wealth Fund/Qatar Airways......now you’re talking competition. How could Qantas and Virgin cope with brand new Qatar A...

  • Qantas further status extension

    They will have no choice to grant extensions for at least one year after they recommence international operations. ScottyFromMarketing wouldn’t accept anything less.

  • Virgin will never take delivery of a Max 8...ever. By converting the Max 8 orders to Max 10, they are letting down Boeing gently. Scurrah will move to Airbus A321 neo and LR within 12 months. The words MAX anything are poison just like DC anything was in the 80’s. Trump was right...again......

  • Is the Boeing 737 MAX safe?

    Mar 15, 2019, 04:38 PM

    Unfortunately this is what happens when you’re first cab off the rank. Ethiopian first with 787-8 then lithium battery fire at LHR and now 737max8. Norwegian/AIR NZ /Virgin Atlantic first with 787-9 Rolls Royce engine blades cracking so wet leasing aircraft till fixed and of course our own ...

  • Dont discount Qatar...If HNA & Branson sell...which is very very likely...to the Qatar Sovereign Wealth fund which owns half of London...Harrods,The Shard..then Etihad will jump at the chance to get out and not have another Alitalia on its hands...then SQ will get out but codeshare. Qatar has...

  • Palaszczuk just announced sister city agreements between BrisVegas and Las Vegas so expect a 787-9 BNE/LAS/ORD
