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.

It's a valid point. Very valid.

Honestly, if SIA was allowed to fly between SYD - LAX (or equivalent cities), I would seriously consider changing my allegence to *A. That decision would be even easier if they had an affiliated domestic carrier as well.
