Re: Australian Aviation Thread - June 2020

No pent up demand from our company in perth to go into the CBD never mind sydney, Brisbane or Melbourne. It will be a slow recovery. We’re meant to be at 50pc in the office and it’s barely hitting 25pc. Flying to Sydney is not on the cards anytime soon for us. Now Broome on the other hand... Yeah, ...

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - April 2020

If SAA falls over, it wont generate huge amounts of extra traffic for QF from SYD, as a significant amount is local WA traffic. I can see QF more likely putting on a A330 flight from PER or MK adding further flights. Considering MK has just gone into voluntary administration as well, that seems unl...
