Episode 110: Qantas Profit Report

Grant’s still recovering from the Episode 100 party but needs to get better quickly if the threatened Airplane Geeks “police action” goes ahead. Meanwhile, some big news this week:

  • Qantas have released their annual profits which were lower than last year but within the expected range. The 70% of their profit was due to
    their Frequent Flyer Program while most of the aviation profit was made in the first half of the year
  • Qantas A380 diverts to Noumea for first time (due to bad weather)
  • We discuss Qantas Cabin Crew Australia and how Qantas are using it to get Jetstar-like cabin crew pay rates from mainline staff
  • We play a snippet from our Hannes Arch interview, including his comments on racing in New York

PS: We also have bloopers for this episode which you can play via the player below:
