The airline I think is based in Melbourne and just after Ansett's collapse, AWA announced that it wanted to take over Ansett's international traffic rights. Thats all I know at this stage. I havent heard ever since.
Didnt hear about that....well obviously just another joke like spirit airlines was...havent heard about them either since....even though their website says arriving in 2002! The Australia World i heard about was to be a charter operator from Melbourne.
