Isn't it great when a story is researched well.

When Austrian Airlines first hinted that they would pull out of the route, the story was they were going to be the last Continental European carrier to fly to Australia, following in the footsteps of Olympic, Alitalia, Lufthansa, KLM and any others I may have forgotten.
