QAN up another 4% today.Something has been put in the water I reckon.They actually lost 600 mill. or so apart from write downs .
Had a few Qantas Bonds which have just sold into the euphoria.

think the only reason to fly QAN is if only they fly there.Strikes,cabin service so so.Who needs tiffs between cabin stewards?
Agreed

A TA opinion of Airlines…as if anyone cares.(B/Class)
Emirates..great but hate the Dubai Airport and BC lounge.
Emirates B/C great but getting pricey. Dubai good, BC lounge good, express transfer train something else. Gatwick BC lounge good. Chauffeur service unbeatable everywhere. Great timetables ex Perth. Heathrow and Gatwick now are crap.

Qatar….great.New planes,old,temporary Airport pretty good and BC lounge excellent.Uses the new HR London Terminal (Terminal 5 ? shares with BA).Haven't been to new A/Port as yet.
Quatar... going to try their Premium Economy

Malaysian…feel for these guys.Talk about a run of bad luck!Excellent service,food and KL Airport is a beauty.
Singapore…just excellent,but their flights don't quite fit in with my flying anymore.
Haven't flown either for years, wouldn't touch Malaysian with a barge pole

American Airlines in general…..hopeless.

there is a well known saying in the airline industry:
If you want to make a small fortune out of aviation, start with a large one!
Been proven time and time again.

I predicted it in conversation recently but without any confidence to act on it.
Awful industry, poorly run company.

There is a lot deck clearing going on with all of that abnormal stuff. The loss was about 650 million without the one off / abnormal items.

I seriously don't know how these guys keep a straight face delivering this rubbish and still be paid a small fortune. mad.gif

Hmm , my wife said to me this morning that The Flying Rat just posted a huge loss. " I bet the share price jumps this morning" I said while sipping my first cuppa and watching the surf pound the beach into submission. Bingo! after fourteen years of tradeing I have almost worked this game out> NOT.

Merc, it makes not a micro-gram of difference. Symbolic nonsense. He needs to take responsibility and resign not a pay cut.

Buffet once said that buying airlines was asking for trouble. Not wrong.




Joyce, and other CEO's, sometimes make the move to freeze their wages. But when they start so high,

what difference does it really make to their lives.?

Nice trade, Mick.
Did you send them a Thankyou card for waiting with the Trading Halt till AFTER you had taken your profit? biggrin.gif
