    I guess the fine is peanuts to a company the size of QF.

    After the previous Air NZ fine, it was probably just a matter of time before it caught up with Qantas. Not surprised at all by this. I did like the comment about fuel being a normal operating expense :)

    I think the airlines enjoy telling us that fuel is a normal operating expense then adding on a fuel surcharge knowing we cannot do anything about it. :(

    I'm surprised it took as long for the commerce commission to catch up with QF as it did.

    IIRC, ANZ fought the charges and the Judiciary process became somewhat of a drawnout test case.

    Once ANZ failed, it was only a matter of time before Qantas plead Guilty (i.e. Did not fight the charges)

    Yep, I guess it's taken QF that long to be told be it's legal staff they were stuffed! (maybe they got a second or even third opinion)
