Ansett Australia - Potential Buyers

Wed Sep 12, 2001 5:23 pm

As you may know, employees are walking off the job and tearing AirNZ's reputation to bits when talking to media.

Now, AirNZ is searching for potential buyers for Ansett.
Who do you think will get Ansett, or do you think Ansett will go into liquidation?

There were talks of Ansett being sold to the Ansett Pilots Association.

nobody will buy it, qantas have refused and selling it to the pilots wont save it because it wont have the captial it needs to upgrade.

ansett sadly is going to go to the wall and the name will be snapped up.
It is amazing what can be accomplised when nobody takes the credit

Apparently there is consortium of Ansett employess who with the help of the Australian Government WILL buy Ansett. That is if the Aust. Govet helps.

We wait and see........

I have heard rumours about Emirates wanting to buy in....just rumours though.

For a bit of an update, staff should find out tonight if they are going to get paid tomorrow.

Wow... Emirates... I never would have thought of that.

I certainly hope that those employees get paid tomorrow...
It would be terrible if they didn't
