I really dont understand the NZ market, it is les than 1/4 the size of Australia, yet it has so many airlines in the country. With NZ, QF , Freedom, and Origon pacific already plying the air routes, how will Zoom fit in. Australia cant even sustain 3 airlines properly and its just a mess here.
Zoom seems like just a pipe dream too, like the planned new airline in Australia that has been reported on here. Add Spirit to that list too.
Hopefully something good happens out of all this mess.

There are all kinds of speculation in the media following the Air NZ press conference the other day - most of it wildly inaccurate.
As for Zoom, it's a joke. The guy in charge's other schemes included "Virgin Pacific Airways" - in which he planned to fly Russian-American Ilyushin jets to Australia and on to Asia and Western Europe.
