Air New Zealands ambitions have always been to have a domestic network in Australia, unfortunately the fact is that they are too small and just cant do it..and they were not in a position to do it when they purchased Ansett.
United Airline you have to understand that Ansett is very much missed and really would love to see their aircaft fly again, but like a dead person they dont come back..that's it
A third airline would be viable only if the right investors establish one and NZ
is definitely not one of them.
will get back on track, or EK
etc..but so far to me these are only rumors. Although I hope OZ
gets a new player, I am not convinced that OZ
will have a third carrier yet.
I am sick of rumors. I will believe it when I hear it properly.
