any australian airline is an Australian flag carrier.

that's incorrect. They own 4 x B777s (1 leased). They leased all A330s (about 5 I think). They own around 2/3 of their 737s, about 40 or 50...

yes fully understand charter flights. Virgin has a lot of pilots/cabin crew who won't be employed. They could offer them part time work, on...

even the busiest airport in the region, Sydney, has slots available now, but maybe not in peak hour.

to be successful a series of charters, most need to fill aircraft in both directions, not necessarily to 100% load factor, but any empty...

freight is money & can cross subsidise passenger fares, so an airline might break even on passenger fares, but overall make a profit due to...

no airline cancels flights just because they only have 75% load factor. FYI A flight that has only 50% load factor, can have much more...

plenty of aircraft & little or no competition whatsoever on some routes Virgin to fly.

yes old Virgin did make money on their international flights. Some routes more profitable than other. Some NZ flights were not that...

after reading comments in another thread, thought this idea, deserved another thread. Virgin has been saying they won't be doing...

maybe virgin needs a charter division, ie a few staff to handle charters, not dozens. They work in with main airline. Simpler model to main...

yeah but this is not a new airline. Virtually no start up costs. Existing airline exists already.
17/08/2020 - 12:53
kind of makes sense, but where would the money come from ? Pilots ?
17/08/2020 - 12:24
Flight Centre(BYO Jet/Aunt Betty etc) will survive. They will just be smaller, with less physical offices & more people working from home....

got refund for China air flights to Europe, but not Thai flights. Thai are in admin like Virgin here, so been told might only get a credit.

Jucy are good, even if owned by kiwis (don't get me started). Older cars & campers but who cares. Sometimes campers (imported used...

that is now. Quarantine for 2 weeks could be canned at any time & will have to be soon or we'll have no airlines left at all.

don't think there's any demand for Being 777-330ER with small freight doors. They'd have to give them away or lease them very cheaply. Fiji...
