As long as they keep serving baby koala in first class, we're good.

Which competing carriers are subsidized, and how?

You don't quit if that happens.

They state high fuel costs as a major blame. Frelling oil companies.

That's what happens when lazy aircraft engineers stay in no-skill jobs.

This is why you stay in school and spend hundreds of thousands on your education, kids.  If you study a no-future degree like engineering, don't be suprised when your job is shipped to India.

That's what tariffs are for.

If the Chinese start selling flights below cost, Australia could start limiting how many boomerangs they sell to China each year.  That'll learn 'em real quick.

There's 51% of the stockholders who wouldn't be that concerned by what the government is doing (or not doing). This is because because that 51% of the stockholders is the government.

"deserves a debt guarantee"

So, basically they are crying poor to get a fresh batch of corporate welfare.

"Sorry guys, we noticed that as a company you have spent the last decade outsourcing every job possible, so we believe as a country you should be outsourcing your welfare seeking arrangements as well".

These arsehats have been losing money for years, and blaming everybody except their own management. If the government is going to bail them out, they'd better make it dependent on ditching Alan Joyce at the very least.

If they're going to make it, they really need to woo back the Australian travelling public, and they need to start by partnering with their staff rather than fighting with them.

Remember the little koala in the TV commercials who moaned, "I hate...Qantas.."?
Well, now he has reason to hate them.
