Ansett will apparently be resurected in Northern Queensland, a Townsville business man has purchsed logos, names etc. Plans call for five small local airlines to be purchased and merged into a single brand, and to acquire 5 F-27 Fellowships (even though I'd rather think they will get F50s). Routes are to be between Hamilton Island, Townsville, Gladstone, Mackay and Mt. Isa.

If this is true, will they be looking to join Star again? I think a lot of people may have forgotten the original Ansett was a Star member (I know I did!). Either way, I look forward to this!

Sounds like a commuter airline, why would they be a Star carrier?

All we need is for someone to start up TAA again!

Dreadful wounding joke from many years ago - "Qantas stands for 'Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Service', and TAA stands for 'Try Another Airline."

If the new Ansett start flights from either MEL, BNE or SYD then it might be in their best interest to re-join star again

Believe it when I see it. Flight West went to the wall here in Queensland, and Alliance Air (which rose from the ashes) struggles to stay alive with charter operations and the odd scheduled service. Between Qantas, Jetstar and Virgin Blue on mainline RPT services, and Macair on mainline regional in North Queensland, I see this as a very crowded market.

I'm sure this new Ansett will reclaim the name and become the great airline that tho old Ansett once was; just as the current PanAm has done!!!

This new Ansett could only be considered joining the Star Alliance
if it meets three basic conditions:

1) They must serve areas that are not already served or are perhaps unserved, by current partners.  checkmark 

2) They must not already be partners in a competitive group.  checkmark 

3) They must have image and service levels consistent with other partners.  thumbsdown 

So maybe in 10 years. But I doubt they will last that long.

Are you sure about that?

Just counting how many F100s they have now compared with the 2 Flight West had they seem to be travelling OK.

Is there any routes or markets in Australia that doesn't have DJ, QF or JQ that would enable the new AN to successfully operate?

Not sure on this one as I had been told by a WLG engineer that JetConnect were replacing their 733's with ex QF 734's towards the end of this year. I will try digging a little and see what I can find out.
