It's often espoused by the marketing gurus and other strategists at NZ, regardless of how succesful they are, that it is necessary, for their very survival, to enter into a long term strategic partnership with Qantas (QF).

Well let's play devil's advocate: what if the suitor wasn't Geoff Dixon? What (and forgetting recent history) airline do you think could afford to and benefit from a strong investment in an alliance/partnership with NZ? Who would you like to see? And why? Where are the synergies etc?

My money's on EK and SQ.

Air NZ don't deserve a cent of Australian investment after the way they treated the 15000 AN workers.

Don't waste your money QF

Agreed, Beno. Nobody's saying AN didn't already have some pretty big hurdles to jump to survive, but the final knife thrust was the loss of all those wonderful people's jobs at Ansett Australia, and the death of one of our country's best icons.

Gentlemen, if that you be, don't rain on the parade and stick to the post please. Personally, I don't want the QF/NZ alliance to go ahead as I think it will be bad for consumers and employees on both sides of the Tasman.

Really, the Australian and New Zealand people (including Sir Peter Abeles, the Murdoch family, NewsCorp, immovable airline unions, some dishonest airline employees, governments on both sides of the Tasman AND the board of NZ at the time) that were responsible for AN's demise are not who we're talking about on this post and are not on NZ's current board. Please try and move on!

Try and think good ANZAC thoughts!
