Lol where was he everytime the QLD government shovelled out tens of millions to Virgin Mark 1? Oh and hundreds of millions for a Bain/VA2.Trade and Tourism Minister Simon Birmingham has blasted Qantas' move to start a bidding war between state governments over the location of its headquarters as a blatant appeal for taxpayer dollars.www.smh.com.au
Australia as a whole loses whilst Boards & senior execs like the $24m man profit at the community's expense.I have never understood how governments actually make money by doing this.
I don't think MEL is realistic, but why should a two runway airport matter, for corporate headquarters? In any event planning on the third runway at MEL is well underway, although where that stands in the post-COVID world, who knows. I suspect probably will be pushed by several (5?) years.I see absolutely no point in considering Melbourne Tullamarine, considering its two runways intersect. Will Avalon get a second runway?

Qantas to lease 20,000sqm at head office as airline deals with coronavirus fallout - realestate.com.auThe national carrier is looking for tenants to occupy half of its Sydney headquarters amid talks it could bid farewell to the city altogether.www.dailytelegraph.com.au
Qantas is looking to sublease two of its four buildings at Mascot to other businesses, as well as office space in Melbourne and Hobart. Apparently they have a lease on their HQ until 2030.
Or could it be that they will be working from home more and so need a smaller office footprint?With the last point - the sub-leasing of 2 of their 7 long term leased buildings for potentially the full remaining (12 yr) term suggests there are between 1,200 & 1,800 Mascot based 'office dwelling' staff to get bad news this year. Represents 30% of total floorspace BUT closer to 45% of 'pleb' space.
From what I've heard about AJ - more that he does not trust staff to work as 'diligently' when they're not being observed....Or could it be that they will be working from home more and so need a smaller office footprint?
This is the funniest thing I’ve seen all week. NT Stick to your online gambling companies and croc farmsScreenshot, as Paywalled article , but you get the gist.
Fanciful doesn’t even begin to describe it - although people probably once said that about space travel...
