Is this a prediction or a confirmed suicide?

Folk missing weddings, funerals, reunions, conferences, long-planned family holidays, etc will not fly with them again.

Virgin already compete with Qantas internationally and domestically. I'm sure if Qantas fold, Sir Richard and his pretty pilots and stewardesses can fill the void. Cool

Maybe someone in Melbourne could hop up and establish a Victoria Air Service (Or VIKAS for short).

Slogan: We can Vix all your flights.

I can see Sir Virgin's smiling face on the promotional videos already:

"Good day, all you cobbers and cobbesses, we are the new Strain airline, and let me tell you for a fact, we are going to look after your jolly arses, fair dinkum we will!"

The obituary may be a bit premature pieman.

The weddings and holidays lot fly Jetstar. It's business travel that makes Qantas profitable. Those bastards aren't about to give up on the flyer points, memories will be short.

Mick - it' not just business folk that fly Qantas. Images on ABC News 24 of folk in the very predicaments I described have been shown here.

Cairns won't do well.

Qantas has been farked as an international airline for a while because of the high AUD.

So once again, the Wozzies are to blame.

It's a weekend. Maybe they deliberately left it til then to piss off the people that don't mean so much to them.

Gillard has a difficult choice here:

Do what Joyce wants, get the airline flying again, and have the dispute independently arbitrated in a few months ... and lose any left wing support she still has

Do what the unions want, screw Qantas for all time, and be seen as pathetically weak by any right wing supporters she still has

Do nothing, temporise, hope for a miracle ... and be usurped within three weeks by Stephen Smith

Meh, Virgin are better anyway. Although they aren't used to being the number 1 airline if that eventually happens. They're like the New Zealand cricket team- Thrive on being the underdogs. But we'll see.......

Are all the engineers, baggage handlers, pilots etc that work for Virgin represented by a different union to the one that represents those working for Slut?
