• Haven't we heard all the same old stuff trotted out before - right back to the days of Compass.  Australia is too big a country with too little population to support five airlines.  They might all operate at slightly different price points, but the market is just not big enough.  I...

  • Why?  He/she might suggest things not in Melbourne Airport's best interests.  They're not going to listen, so why add another salary to the payroll and dilute profits.  Customer experience and customer satisfaction are not on their agenda.  It's not as though we can take our b...
