I recently went to a social gathering with various QF
persons. A few airport manages where there and they where talking about Qantas mainline was pulling out of christchurch, NZ
, with all flight to that port being operated by thier NZ
subsidiary JetConnect (in QF
colours), they also mentioned Australian AIrlines cabin crew EBA
would be changed by management to allow that company to take over QFs flights Sydney to Honolulu and that they would also get 3 747.300 aircraft to operate the sydney to Bombay sector, aparently they are losing huge money on the route as they have to block out a large number of seats to enable the aircraft to operate non-stop to Bombay, of course Geoff Dixon is not confirming or denying these stories, as usual everything is top secret at QANTAS.
