Re: Virgin Australia reportedly facing “severe cash flow crisis” with “very limited options”

Luxon was right to try push Borghetti out. His strategy has failed. NZ, having been burnt by ownership in Australian carriers before, were right to abandon their stake in VA. You just need to look at the latest changes to the VA lounge access policy for international flights to see what a bunch of r...

Re: Why did Lufthansa and Qantas hold out on the 77W?
