although not completely ended, it looks certain that Boeing strike will end.

So what will VA do re starting date of its SYD/LAX/SYD service ?

Start mid JAN ?

I reckon they can make mid - late JAN.

If they start work next week, that would be a 60 day delay presumably?

If they were due for delivery at the end of OCT, they could still get delivery end of DEC, so I reckon they could get the AOc etc before end of Jan.

They have only rebooked pax upto 16JAN so if they can start by then it would be good I presume.

yes but they wouldn't want to get it wrong a 2nd time or they might become known as WHENEVER AIR !!!

Is V Australia only looking at doing the trans-Pacific routes? I guess they would compete with their 'parent' if they did SYD-HKG.

I am glad the strike ended--it would have only brought pain to both sides let alone customers like V Australia if it continued.



Keep on truckin'...

Exactly!

who knows, maybe they will stick to the FEB28 date? Might make more sense seeing as they have not been able to sell more seats for 16JAN-28FEB period>

VS isn't parent.

Brnson owns something like 25% only of DJ which owns 100% of VA we think.

VA is also doing OZ/South Africa as stuff all competition.

The Virgin Group own 25% or therabouts of the Virgin Blue Group.

The Virgin Group own 51% or thereabouts of Virgin Atlantic.

So they have nothing in common other than a common shareholder and Virgin Atlantic have no influence or say over Virgin Blue.

Similar to the fact Qantas own shares in both Air Pacific and Australian Air Express, but Australian Air Express would have no say in how Air pacific is run.

Maybe they'll pick a date somewhere between the 2 dates 16 Jan & 28 Feb (so as not to disrupt too mnay people already booked over that period) & then have an auction where they sell a heap of seats for somewhere between $999 & $1299 all inclusive of all taxes/charges for adults & kids, as a sorry for stuffing you around SALE.

DJ sold some seats in very early days on auction site www.sold.com.au which don't think exists anymore (although they did it very badly).

So that is about $1000 return all in.


How much are industry fares usually?

depends who with ?

but AD75 (confirmed) usually $750-$900+, depending on the seasonality & if you can get them !!! (often might be a milk run, via AKL, NAN, Asia)

Guess it's a way for VA to dump seats, but not in public arena, as not only getting $599 (less what Travelclub get) but also fuel surcharge.
