Virgin Australia hasn’t done anything to scare investors fleet wise in these cautious times during a pitched capacity war with Qantas, but it is linking the two resource capitals of Perth and Brisbane with double daily A330s on working days from 15 May.

There will also be a third return service on the route Monday-Fridays with a 737.

It has also announced its entry with new services to the Brisbane-Bundaberg and Brisbane- Moranbah routes with ATR turbo-props in May and April respectively, adding to the resource industry brawl with Qantas on both sides of the continent.

    I guess the two ‘no daylight saving’ states should stick together.

    Well Itfisher seeing as we’re the only states making the country money at the moment…

    I don’t want to get into an argument about which part of the country is keeping Australia financially afloat, or how most of the nation’s mineral wealth end up in the pockets of international companies, but if the miners dig up much more from ‘up north’ we could find our continent slipping south.

    Itfisher: If the federal government continues to squander the mineral wealth from WA and QLD by pouring it into inefficient rust-bucket industries in NSW & Vic then the continent will lurch so far to the south east that in a few years time airlines won’t require ETOP’s clearance to fly from Aus to South America – you might even be able to do it in one hop with an early model 787-800.
