Well it appears that the other thread is gone....or am I just so blond even a search didn't bring it up?
I was just putting my dog outside before I get ready to head on out for the day, when I called her and it hit me.
My dog's name is Anzac.
Seeing as the two airlines are now "one" why not encapture the whole essence of the merger and rename Air New Zealand and Ansett Australia.......Air Anzac, Anzac Airways, Anzac Airlines or a variation thereof. I don't just mean the holding group, but the whole kit and caboodle.
Anzac really does encapture the whole spirit of Australian and New Zealand
co-operation, and to be honest, I don't think there would be one Aussie or Kiwi who could be negative about a name such as "Anzac" on the basis of national patriotism, because Anzac is a "brand" of patriotism which both country's share with the same amount of fervour.
Or would renaming the two airlines "Anzac" dishonour a symbol of Australia and New Zealand which really isn't for commercial gain.
Any thoughts guys and gals
P.S. Sorry if this particular name has been covered, but I am blaming it on being blonde. If this is the case, please just give me a slap before you hit the "Back" button on your browser
