That's my take. It's trying to compete with government owned enterprises and getting a kicking. Given that it's losing $200m p.a. Qantas should be happy to hand it back. The Labor Party gets a huge win with its base.

Other airlines would probably be happy to divert their cancelled flights to Thailand to fill the gap...

Who will buy shares in Qantas Mark 1, 2, and 3 when they try to privatise it again?

I'd be all for re-nationalising the international arm.

That's the only way I can see QANTAS remaining a good quality airline.

Otherwise more and more operations will be shipped off shore and standards will continue to drop.

I think it is in the country's interest to have a high-standard airline in operation, not just a plethora of cheap and nasty cut price organisations.

So the CEO of QANTAS (who is gay) was assaulted yesterday while giving a speech by a man who shoved a meringue pie in his face. Turns out that the assailant is a Charlie Church who objects to Qantas supporting same sex marriage.

I wonder if his use of terminology was deliberate:

“CEO’s need to respect Australia is a democracy where backdoor attempts to subvert the clear wishes of the overwhelming majority will cost companies bottom lines,” Mr Overheu wrote."

It's just a shame he didn't use a cream pie...

The dude has broken the internet now.

When you type in "gay creampie facial" into google, you get a picture of Mr Overhue...
