I am not sure how many of you would have read Wikipedia's entry for OzJet, but I found the stuff on its competitors quite amusing


Competitors
Ozjet competes in the business traveller market against Virgin Blue and Qantas City Flyer services. However, Ozjet's most serious challenge will come from aspirant Gold Airways which has lodged it's statement of intent with CASA to operate domestically in 2006. Gold Airways is a proposed hybrid carrier with a strong pre-established business following.

Somehow, I don;t think ozJet qould count Gold Airways as its most serious challenge.

I'm confused how a proposed airline could have a "strong pre-established business following". :?:

Just shows's that one shoulf not really believe everything one reads on Wiki... can be quite a good refeerence source, but as there's not really any great control on what gets entered, be wary.

Actually, given the way it works, I find it to be a quite a good resource, especially when it gives links to the source of the information. On the down side, it seems to pick up the occasional strange paragraph like this one.

my understanding is that anyone can contribute to Wiki ... that it is not edited. if i am correct in this understanding that might explain some of the wierd sounding info you can access there.

Well see, the whole point about Wikipedia is that it's self-correcting. If you notice an anomoly like this, change it.

Except that you don't need to, because I just did it.
