A HOWARD Government decision to protect Qantas on US routes will entrench fares that are 38 per cent per kilometre higher than on the more competitive London flights, a Singapore-backed study has found.
The finding by Canberra consultancy Econtech came as Singapore Airlines made a final plea for "a fair go" ahead of the likely rejection today by cabinet of its bid to fly between Australia and the US.
