@AvWeekScho Scoot CEO Wilson notes many airlines will shrink and some disappear, but there could also be opportunistic startups at some point. Cheap planes and fuel, and lots of staff available. May not happen immediately, but “the cycle of creative disruption” will play out again #CAPALive.
@AvWeekScho Scoot’s Campbell Wilson says LCCs will recover “faster and more strongly” than full-service carriers: typically point-to-point rather than hub; more leisure oriented vs corporate; routes are within region; lower cost/price; typically fewer touch points in process (from #CAPALive).
@AvWeekScho Interesting that Virgin Australia says talks with Boeing re. fate of MAX order also cover “future fleet requirements.” VA had already confirmed it would talk with Airbus and Boeing about widebody replacement for its A330s/777s. Update on MAX order expected in coming months.
@AvWeekScho Qantas wants states to compete to gain (or retain) its corporate HQ and other facilities. Hints at new Wstn Sydney airport as an option for some functions, and will even consider moving heavy maintenance base from Brisbane (altho that seems less likely).
@winglets747 This article plays into the marketing hype of business class: refined service, restaurant meals, luxury alcohol. The reality for most high-yielding premium passengers: skip the food and maximise sleep or work time.
