Just heard on the radio and read on QOs web-site that Origin Pacific is closing up all operations after its freight business could not come to a satisfactory terms and conditions with two interested parties.

I have been reading a few comments from Mike Pero and some reports of how his relationship was with founder Robert Inglis. I am left wondering whether he was the problem with this airlines all along. Being the founder and all it might have been hard for him to receive input from others who might have had a better idea of where the airline should go. I'm not saying Pero was the one who should have been running the airline but from his comments and the reports I'm left pondering what might have been.

Late Friday afternoon Origin Pacific was placed in receivership with a Christchurch company and closed its HQ doors for the last time. Three of its J31s are now with Air National with new regos and another J31 is in storage at Ardmore in Auckland

I got as far as QOs boarding gate at WLG for a flight to AKL via NSN in March, before the flight was cancelled due to a technical problem that happened as the aircraft was flying to WLG. QO originally refused to re-book me on either an NZ or QF flight to AKL but after explaining to them their obligations under the Consumer Guarantees Act they re-booked me on QF, two hours after original departure time. I was flying to AKL for an interview for a USA visa at the US consulate

I think it is very sad news. But perhaps New Zealand is happier with a monopoly airline.

Perhaps everyone is wiser after the event?

That's very sad news to hear - I once flew QO from ZQN to CHC on a Dash 8-100, a very pleasant flight with breathtaking views out of the window. I also remember the F/A's humorous take on the safety demo, which was quite funny  Smile

All the best to QO's employees!
