Re: Australian Aviation Thread - April 2020

BREAKING: From FINreview and Sky reports really seems like it is going to be voluntary administration or MU. https://www.afr.com/street-talk/virgin-australia-headed-for-va-after-government-knockback-20200420-p54lhm?&utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=nc&eid=socialn:twi...

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - April 2020

From a sunrise report this morning. To paraphrase the last two minutes: "I spoke to a senior aviation source this morning. In real terms, taking over VA would cost 4.7 billion dollars when taking into account around 4.2 billion in net liabilities. When you could take over QANTAS for 5.5 billion...

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - April 2020

With all due respect, if you look at the statements through the lens of the complex ownership structure I believe you will see a different picture with their reserves. Well at least thats what the Sky special report indicated. I will happily stand corrected but I am basing my comments of this repor...

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - April 2020

I think you've got far too many zero's in that number, that don't even make anywhere near that in revenue... Being 62% state owned by the Chinese government, they get afforded luxuries many airlines do not. One of those things being huge cash reserves. Do not throw BS in here where you cannot backu...

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - April 2020

All the chatter is really pointing to a a Chinese takeover through China Eastern before Voluntary Administration. Nanshan also will maintain a minor (read around 13-17 percent) stake under this proposal. If you believe Skynews the Airline will be called Australian Eastern Airways. Why would they ov...

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - April 2020

ABC Radio ran a segment on VA this morning with Will Horton being interviewed. They were saying that apparently Etihad and Singapore have come to a mutual agreement that neither will make any sort of move towards VA. Also said that Akbar Al Baker of Qatar Airways has expressed interest in a full tak...

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - November 2019

Tt is an extremely pointless airline at the moment. They either need to grow it up and truly rival JQ or shut it down. At the moment, an airline with just 16 aircrafts cannot truly offer itself as a viable competitor. If TT expanded a bit including some int flights I think we would see it gain a lot...

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - November 2019

Very interesting to see Batik’s numbers change so rapidly in the time they’ve been flying to PER. They’re obviously building consumer confidence. Has anyone tried their J Class? I’ve alwaus been curious why they use the ID brand to PER but the Malindo brand to the Eastern states. ID have benefited ...

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - November 2019

Doubling SYD makes no sense for NH, they could've easily added MEL out of HND which would've been really profitable. This honestly reminds me of the situation of Japan to Canada flights where Japanese airlines only focus on YVR and YYZ gets no love from JL or NH. Same thing here with MEL and SYD. I...

According to another discussion thread NH will go double daily HND-SYD. The 2nd flight will be an evening arrival and overnight with a midday departure which is subject to change.

So it hasn't improved from this https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-12-06/donghai-airlines-china-darwin-nt-flights-run-under-capacity/10587454 Was a strange route to begin with and a long flight in a 737. I would wonder if they could make it a SYD-DRW-SZX and MEL-DRW-SZX on rotating turns. I reckon th...

And Donghai Airlines has been a disaster in Australia. Close to one year being here and the load factors indicate massive losses. How long till they pull out?
