    New Virgin Blue CEO announced today?

    Announcement due at 11am. Speculation is that Borghetti will get the gig:

    FORMER Qantas executive general manager John Borghetti has emerged as the frontrunner to replace the outgoing chief executive of Virgin Blue, Brett Godfrey.
    Borghetti may land top job at Virgin Blue | The Australian

    Thoughts?

    The Fin Review is much more certain...

    Qantas veteran to be Virgin CEO
    Virgin Blue is set to announce the appointment of former long-serving Qantas executive John Borghetti as its new chief executive, pitting him against the man who beat him for the top job at Qantas, Alan Joyce.

    I wonder if DJ was a better option than watching the reach of QF decline as JQ took the reigns?

    Weird how things turn out:

    Qantas: 'full service airline' run by a 'budget airline' manager
    Virgin Blue: 'budget airline' run by a 'full service airline' manager

    It will be interesting how he takes Qantas on in his new role. I would expect that we may see some interesting innovations coming up.
    Something big is about to happen.

    I think its a great move by DJ, he's the guy who should be running QF right now, not that turkey Joyce

    Shall be interesting to see what eventuates.
