Australia at risk of losing the up to half of last 15 airlines still flying there
In an article posted by The Guardian on Friday March 26th, the point was raised that possibly half* of the remaining 15 airlines still operating flights with only 30-40 people per flight might cease flying to Australia.
The board of airlines executive, Barry Abrams, is quoted in the article as saying a handful of the remaining airlines have said to him "they cannot be expected to keep operating passenger flights under such poor commercial and operational conditions"
The article raises a lot of points about how difficult it is to operate flights to Australia at the moment due to the frequent changing of the caps and other issues, and is well worth reading.
