How to Stop Ansett in Their Tracks
In order for any airline to operate, it must have a delegated person who is responsible for the operations. This is done via an Airline Operator's certificate.
Well, this ex Qantas Captain left to go to Ansett a long time ago and he ran their operations, held said certificate, and was THE man responsible for the systems that missed all the maintenance on Ansett's 767 fleet. I happen to have run into this guy in his time flying at Qantas, and trust me he's no bright boy.
So, in his preparations setting up the new Ansett, someone from Qantas calls and offers him a token job with a big title.
Result? Ansett has no valid Airline Operator's Certificate holder. However, from where I sit Ansett is better off, and Qantas had better watch out for this guy's inabilities!
You have to laugh though. Qantas are smarter than they seem..... :s6:
