$30m benefit from lower fuel prices during the period, so still a big turnaround even excluding the fuel! Also they say all the operating segments are profitable! Great to see!

Sounds promising, but let's not get too carried away. After all the write-downs and write-offs, you'd expect things to improve. IMO the jury is still out.

Yup. It does seem like a step in the right direction.

And they still have another 2 years or the program to go, so things should only get better. Lets just hope fuel prices stay low for a while :)

And the share price has rocketed to above $2.40

Decided to hit the bid and lighten on my holdings from about $1, been a good ride

So when do they firm up the 787 orders?

I would think when they announce QFi returning to profitability, not just the group as a whole.

It seems from the last couple of lines it already has.

The company said all parts of the airline were expected to be profitable at an underlying earnings before interest and tax level.

When the exchange rate is totally against them ordering new aircraft and the wait for the production line slots is longer than it is now.....

Unfortunately oil will only stay low until the Saudis kill off the shale oil operations.

IIRC QFi had to provide an appropriate return. No doubt that'll be rehashed to make sure badly need investment can be divert front QFi to JQ

Agree on the XR but reality is an aircraft will be funded mostly via a US$ loan and so cost is spread over 10+ yrs.
And QF has options with what I understand are confirmed slots on the 787s

Same tactics as Rio and BHP are using to choke their competitors.


Read more: Iron ore price fall a surprise



It hit a low of US$68.49 ($82.59) on November 26 and on Monday was trading at $US71.77.

Tinto's cash costs for producing iron ore are thought to be between $US18 and $US19 a tonne. Rio's break-even is around $US42 a tonne, which includes cash costs, government royalties, shipping, finance and other corporate costs. That compares with BHP which is understood to have a break-even point of about $US45 a tonne.

Take away a few more benefits from Platinums, sell a few more lounge memberships and see how profitable an airline can be.
