Are they expanding a bit too fast?? Like I know Ansett's capacity lost is a big reason but then there are numerous examples of no-frills airlines expanding too fast on exploding traffic demands and then fails.

The demise of AN is definatley why AN is expanding and them recodring a profit in the first few months of operation. They seem pretty confident in making another profit and they will if they keep it right. They will probably stop expanding once they have got the aircraft they want and then see what their position is, if AN will survive and see how much capacity QF has dumped.

Excellent news for the BNE-TSV route. The extra capacity is really needed with Virgin Blue being a popular choice over Qantas and at one stage Ansett. The flight is to be a rather early morning flight leaving Brisbane at around 7:30am i think.
