QF to codeshare with NZ on NZ and AU domestic routes according to AusBT. https://www.ausbt.com.au/qantas-air-new-zealand-join-forces-with-codeshare-partnership I think VA is going under the next time oil reaches $100/bbl Turns out VA needs NZ more than NZ needs VA. Afterall NZ has a monopoly in NZ.Jump to post

Who thinks that JL's new long-haul LCC might serve AKL and/or CHC, as opposed to mainline JL metal? :hyper: Given the model's success in the Australia - Japan corridor (with JQ), I see it working with New Zealand too.

Really depends on the tone of the "joke". If the agent was indeed "berating" the customer for knowing the airline policy better than them than the employee should be let go immediately. Otherwise this is overreaction.Jump to post
AirAsia: There are no countries
Hey guess what. No one (or companies) lives forever. Every songle company in this world will go “under” some time in the future. If your questions is if they will go under in the near future then no. They are profitable, growing at a healthy pace and most importantly cash generative. Some of the mos...Jump to post
Qantas has suspended all future growth international plans out of PER until there is a resolution on the PER-JNB flight https://www.airlineratings.com/news/qantas-halts-perth-international-route-expansion-plans/ Smart move by Alan Joyce.

Yes Perth has more people, but Auckland is the financial centre for the entire New Zealand economy. Eh, PER is the gateway to the WA economy, which is virtually the same size as the New Zealand economy, to which AKL is the gateway to.

3G? from turbulence? Surely thats not likelyJump to post
someone in QF must be happy they did not refresh their fleet so early and the majority of their fleet is with tried and tested aircraft.... QF does not have the cashflow to refresh their fleet, they are selling assets just to bring existing a320 leases onto balance sheet. When the oil next hit 100,...Jump to post
The irony is that Allegiant is one of the "safest" airline in the US in that there had been 0 fatalities in its 20 year operating history.Jump to post
All this indicates is they are filling the seats with a bunch of junk fares. Yields are likely awful. That makes zero sense. Southwest and delta has LF of 83% and 85%, does that mean rubbish yields as well? By your logic an airline with 10% LF must be the most profitable in the world because each p...Jump to post
Keep in mind that raising tariffs in a command economy is symbolic. China is signalling to the US that it intends to give the command to China owned firms to reduce its orders of US goods. Tariffs are not necessary to accomplish this. What you said makes no sense. They are proposing to raise a tari...Jump to post

It's probably more perception than reality. The industry is a duopoly. Why squander all the pricing power you have on some pity price war under which everyone would benefit except for BA and AB. Would / did BA go after Hawaiian / Air Asia X? Of course. Would they offer them $30m for a 787 just to ki...Jump to post

Great idea on paper until you realise just how little space the seats have. Personally id rather be standing the whole way.

Hi Folks,would appreciate some advice from the more Informed A Netter's CI 051 flew over my residence this morning on approach to 16 R and I was stunned by the noise generated on its approach.

QF used to have 767s with a 1-2-2 configuration in J.
which will be a big step forward in comfort with a 2-3-2 configuration in economy, 1-2-2 in premium economy and 1-1-1 in business class
To be very clear, ZK-NZE did not suffer structural damage. You are way out of line making statements like that on this forum. Ok. Firstly, this is an unedited internet based forum.
