Well, well, well: Qantas has actually listened to the public outcry and has relented on its decision to route PER-NRT flights via SYD.
However, the WA governement has in returned promised to market the route for Qantas at its own expense.
I just wonder if other governments, such as the SA govt. had made such a fuss, whether other cut routes may have been retained, simply to save QF face.
