Ansett Australia was the second largest carrier in Australia providing high level of services.
However, Lew and Fox plan to rebuild Ansett Australia into an airline with an entire Airbus Narrowbody fleet. They plan to bring in 29 A 320s and get rid of the rest like the B 767-200s, B 737s etc etc.
Basically, Ansett Australia has to start all over again.
However, will they rebuild Ansett Australia back to its former glory? Let's say within 2 to 3 years? Will we ever see widebodies in Ansett's fleet again?
My guess is that.. It takes 3 to 4 years for them to rebuild Ansett. Afterthat, we may see widebodies like A 330/340, or the B 777-200ER for the widebody fleet. Also, many aviation enthusiasts told me that AN International will resurrect in some form and I will not rule out the B 747-400 as well.
So, will Ansett be as big as it used to be? If not, bigger with a more comprehensive International Network? Also, will we see Widebodies flying for Ansett Australia again?
