Episode 314: Qantas Profit, oh Qantas Profit, where for art thou???

Taking advantage of the Bits N Pieces nature of this episode, Steve & Grant sneak in a longer AusDesk than usual. This time it’s back to Qantas who have announced a record loss thanks to some restructuring they’re doing as they chase a return to profitability (it’s got to happen eventually, right? :) )

They include a clip of Ross Greenwood on 2GB interviewing Alan Joyce and hitting him with some rather hard questions, all of which Joyce manages to deflect while ensuring he stuck to his key points (it’s not our fault, it’s all due to terrible external causes, we’re turning around & we’ll be profitable next year) (sound familiar??? It’s like the last few years…)

Meanwhile, Virgin Australia reports a loss (but their 737 MAXs will apparently be online in 2018 before Jetstar’s A320 NEOs) while Air New Zealand shows them all how it’s done & reports a profit.
