See previous page referred to VA flights being picked up by Alliance Fokkers.

As ATRs are removed they will be back filled with Alliance a/c.

Alliance around seven F70/100 frames (by last count) stored in Bratislava awaiting delivery.

Also a new b737 arrived in Brisbane on the 20/04.

I will be interested to see if the rumor bares fruit, doesnt make financial or operational sense from a security perspective, and in some cases makes no sense without airport upgrades.

No one is saying they dont do VA services, heck they are even doing Tigers, point is they have not and will not replace all ports, they cannot from an infrastructure perspective nor from the EBA perspective for VARA. In terms of the EBA, thats Rocky, Gladstone, Moranbah and Bundy.

All announced today.

On the EBA front, nothing stops Virgin from codesharing on another carriers services.

I can't see VA gifting that marketshare back to QF.

Interesting times ahead!

Think the ACCC might have something to say on that.

How?

If it's a commercial decision to stop services in their own right, and then subsequently codeshare, what's the problem?

Airlines do it all the time.
