I dunno. Maybe there are other people like me that are looking for an alternative that's friendly to their travel needs? All I hear about with the majors is 'status'. Priority check in, lounges, the best seats, the best access to awards. None of which I get. So a friendly alternative would suit me!Well, I’m no businessman, but I have to wonder at the logic. The domestic market is unlikely to be any larger than about 50% of it’s size in 2019. So, between Virgin, Jetstar, and QF, they’ll have enough capacity for over double the actual market. So, it wouldn’t be much different to engaging in a capacity war. It probably made some sense if Virgin actually went under, but if it survives, all I see is Rex folding.
Status isn't an issue with many other airlines. BA has ultra cheap Club Europe fares, or economy fares that come with a nice open bar. Same with US domestic. In Australia I'm always left feeling second best. I'd fully support Rex.
