    Some beauiful work here from Qantas. See link.

    Suckered the Aust Gov't into denying Singapore Airlines access to the US rout via Oz by promising to keep Maintenance jobs in Oz.

    Then after the Govt ruling, Qantas sends the work off shore anyway - knowing the Gov't cannot go back on the Singapore Airlines decision without looking like jokes.

    Maybe we will suddenly see Thai or MAS or Emirates given the Govt's blessing as payback.

    The government is currently assisting Virgin Blue to gain access to US ports - flying from Australia.

    Which of course raises the question whether Qantas would have been better off accepting Singapore Airlines rather than Virgin Blue :?:

    Has their strategy backfired :?:
