RE: Why AA Doesn't Fly To Australia?

Between the east coast of Madascar and the west coast of South America (both excluded) and excluding that part of Indonesia south of the equator, there are about 25 - 30 million people.

RE: Will Qantas Consider Former Ansett A320 Pilots?

ALL current Impluse pilots will convert to the A320 before any new pilots are taken on. The plan is for the B717 to leave the fleet, so current pilots have to be converted or sacked, the word is all current pilots will be offered conversion training first. As Impluse will have eventually have 23 A32...

Singapore777... Singapore gave QF/BA Fifth freedom rights in return for Sixth freedom rights in Oz/UK for SQ. I would say the rights are of around equal value.

After Ansett went belly up in 02, the Oz government gave any airline flying into Oz that wanted it permission to carry local traffic on domestic sectors. UA had such permission for several months, at least. I doubt it is still effective.
