Steve is solo this week as Grant is out of action with a throat infection. Steve covers the huge turnaround in the Qantas full year profit ($575 million profit after a $2.8 billion loss the year before) with an excerpt of Ross Greenwood from Sydney radio station 2GB interviewing CEO Alan Joyce about why he thinks such a turnaround has been possible.

Qantas confirm their order for 8 787-9s in Red Tail livery plus they still have 15 firm options and another 30 slots reserved in case they want more.
Meanwhile, Australiaâ€™s Matt Hall returned to the podium in the Red Bull Air Race recently, this time coming second to Britainâ€™s Paul Bonhomme at Ascot in the UK. Steve plays some audio from the post race press conference.
