Re: GJ A320 Air Australia & A380 Malaysia
It's a shame they lasted such a short time, but it is a reminder of just how brutal the deregulted Australian airline enviroment is:
Compass Airlines 1
Compass Airlines 2
Australian Airlines 1
Australian Airlines 2
Indian Ocean Airlines
Spirit Airlines (Aust)
Australia World Air
Australia Air International
Some of these hopefuls managed to at least start operations before collapsing, some took delivery of aircraft but that was as far as they got, some never even got their name on the airport check-in counters. Australia is a deregulated airline industry grave yard.
And at this point the last major players still standing are:
Qantas (can't keep a good airline down!!! 91 years old and still going strong)
Virgin Australia (formally known as Virgin Blue)
