    now that's a dummy spit. Good to see the board won't be paid for the period that the planes are grounded too.

    This is the beginning of the great Aussie financial collapse.

    Fascinating. Good to see someone standing up to Australian unions though.

    Has this ever happened before to any airline? In my lifetime, I cannot recall any largish airline like this being grounded voluntarily.

    yeh, lets stand up to unions and force an entire airline to shut down, therefore fcuking up the plans of many thousands of passengers.

    Joyce is just playing politics.

    Lets see if Qantas exists as an airline next week.

    "Spirit of Australia" no more.

    You should see the political storm that has risen here. It's also managed to hit on a weekend where lots of people are travelling domestically with the Melbourne cup. There are also 17 heads of government trapped in Perth.

    What a shock. About to head off on Cathay for 4 week work trip in Aussie. All internal flights are Qantas. Could be in for some long drives.......

    Quantas have scored a bit of an own goal by not notifying the Oz government beforehand. Plus how not to win their customers over.
