• Singapore Airlines (via majority owner Temasek )taking Virgin will be the best thing to happen to Australian aviation. Cashed up with a $13b injection backed by the Government of Singapore, Qantas will have real competition that it hasn't had in a long while. Will it keep Virgin name..depends if ...

  • We need Qatar Airways to buy Virgin...then Qantas and their buddies Emirates will be shaking in their boots. A350-900 on the Syd/Mel/Per route & Sydney/Melbourne route, and A321LR domestically and A220 to Coffs/Byron/Tamworth etc. Deep pockets, extraordinary leader in Ali Baker and currently ...

  • QF fleet: A220 for 717, A321 for 737-800, A350-900 for A330/787; A350-1000 for 747 and Project Sunrise; A380..

  • Now all that's left to do is order another 100 A321's for QF domestic (on top of the 99 for Jetstar) and we can all breathe a sigh of relief. Alan Joyce wants to leave Qantas on a high and there was no way in the world he was going to choose more NightmareLiners (with lithium battery issue still ...

  • Airbus A350-1000 is the Winx and Boeing is the...well, damaged goods. Why would Qantas touch anything with an 8 in it from Boeing. The 777-9 is having major engine problems and we've seen this movie before hello 737 Max 8. The 777-8 is no where near ready and just ask Air New Zealand/Ethiopian/N...

  • 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?

    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
