That was some of the most glib and shallow analysis I have seen.
While there ARE problems, and CXflyboy has already pointed them out, to say that other airlines do have such a big problem, well, mate, you're obviously not up to date with the Australian scene.
QF has problems because its large domestic corporate accounts have been reduced in value because of the entry of Virgin Blue. It's profit dropped by about 30% (as announced recently). SYD-MEL is where the big corporate dollars are found and with Impulse having cut savagely into the yields and Virgin Blue continuing the attack, to say that other airlines don't have that problem is to say that only HKG is affected by the economic downturn...
For even worse problems, see AN. From a $AUD 157 million profit under Rod Eddington (now CEO of BA), to a multi-hundred million loss because of the corporates. AN has a massive exposure to domestic operations, even more than QF does.
The problems are not limited to CX, CXCPA. Perhaps you should get a reality check.
Perhaps we should fly QF and AN quickly before they go bust...aww...wait a minute...if we queue up for airfares, esp. at relatively higher prices, won't the airlines make a profit...
Do you see what I'm saying??
On the other hand, CXFlyboy's analysis was far better and quite enjoyable to read actually.
