QF as always going to miss the boat…
They’ve had an opportunity to implement a new route but out of spite chooses to discontinue the service…

Unfortunately that's the way both QF and JQ operate, it's their way or no way. They use this same approach across the entire business including dealings with suppliers, staff, and even customers.
I do sense change in the wind though…. Cam Wallace ex-NZ, Leanne Langridge also ex-NZ, both are known for their people leadership and brand advocacy. I doubt they will be the last external appointments. I also anticipate an exec exodus after end of year results and fat bonuses- people will have hung on through Covid for a good return.
I suspect the board has also realised they need a change both brand externally, and also internally with people. AJ may deliver results for the shareholders- in fairness his primary responsibility, but other two areas aren’t his strength, even if he stays on I suspect we’ll hear and see less of him. I also suspect with huge cost reductions in labour, QF will start spending on their people again - a lower base to work off, and why not pay few people more? JQ however wouldn’t have a clue!!
