Interesting where Alan Kohler asked if the VA CL would be introduced and JB just smiled. I guess that will be announced in their upcoming annual report?

Title should be "...appear on Inside Business..." - mod please edit.
Thanks mod!

My thanks to Yo Yo Ma for advising of this intervew. I even made mention to my wife that I'd have to watch it..................it's a real shame I forgot to make mention to my brain to remember it. I've been at the computer most of the day typing reports, (and watching AFF replies) and totally forgot to watch. :oops:

What is so frustrating when watching interviews like that is realizing just how badly QF have screwed things up over the last few years.

There's no reason why QF shouldn't be destroying little old DJ, given their superior existing facilities and worldwide network/connections, yet DJ seems to just be doing everything right while QF plays the same old losing games. How a company of that size can tolerate a board that is so out of touch with their staff and customers is beyond me.

The last 30 seconds shows how investing into your customers pays off.

Brilliant mind JB.

The couch chat the panel had after the interview was interesting viewing, particularly the bit about profit/lost leading & as yo yo ma has already pointed out the importance of creating an equal to the CL ......the profit announcement will expose any worts - if they exists!

Could be time for a shareholder revolt.

Damn he's good. QF is screwed.

So... it's time to cash in all our QF points and cut up our cards?

Just wondering - I don't want to be training a horse which is bound to be shot.

Very smug indeed! Makes me want to buy a truckload of DJ shares tomorrow...

If we're talking like Apple Corporation share spike post-iPod 4G....

Doing a lazy search on Google and finding Qantas Pilots, "The Major Shareholders of Qantas" are:

TWENTY LARGEST QANTAS SHAREHOLDERS

1. J P Morgan Nominees Australia (J P Morgan)
2. HSBC Custody Nominees (Australia) Limited (HSBC Bank)
3. National Nominees Limited (National Bank of Australia)
4. Citicorp Nominees Pty Limited (Citibank)
5. Cogent Nominees Pty Limited
6. Australia Reward Investment
7. Queensland Investment Corporation
8. Pacifica Group Plans Ltd
9. Tasman Asset Management Ltd
10. AMP Life Limited
11. Bond Street Custodians Limited
12. USB Wealth Management Australia Nominees Pty Ltd
13. The Senior Master of the Supreme Court
14. USB Nominees Pty Ltd
15. UCA Growth Fund Limited
16. ARGO Investments Limited
17. Suncorp Custodian Services Pty Ltd
18. Share Direct Nominees Pty Ltd
19. Woodross Nominees Pty Ltd
20. RBC Dexia Investor Services Limited

Further according to the site, the top 4 shareholders have 70% of the shares.

So if you think a shareholder revolt is in order, I'd be thinking that anyone on this list be on your target list. That or better start some major praying, voodoo chants or weird deity dancing to bring rightful, swift and painful retribution (preferably of the physical or fatal kind) to the smart alecks controlling those companies who think that the current Qantas board is doing a swell job. You may also want to pray for a similar penalty upon Alan Joyce. (Now where was that person that was trying to kill him in the first place? He might be useful...)


Though, as it stands, if QF is doomed because JB is on the other team, then perhaps a much easier thing to do would be to virtually "burn" the company down extremely quickly, declare bankruptcy, and start all over again with no baggage. No point prolonging death if it is going to happen soon.

Interesting to see that QF's top 4 shareholders are all banking type businesses and they still charge too much for there CC surcharge.

There surcharge is more than mine for my business and my TO is not even a percentage point of there's.

"We're comfortable with that level, but we'll be competitive and if the fares drop further, we'll be competitive in that market."

That quote suggests VA won't be the instigators of any further J price wars, but will engage if QF starts it.

"Since we formed this alliance and it's not just Etihad, it's Singapore airlines, it's Air New Zealand, and it's Delta, the amount of money we are getting on our domestic network has more than doubled, in fact it's almost trebled," he said.

And this tends to suggest the biggest factor with full planes now flying has not been the status matches, but rather the alliances.
