Jetstar Follows Ryanair Model - Attacks Airports

Jetstar which is the low cost airline of the Qantas Group (heck it even says so now on some of its planes like the A330s) has taken a leaf out of the Ryanair playbook in picking on airports.

After its very public spat with Darwin last year - it has now picked on a smaller airport - Rockhampton. Pulling out its big PR guns - the airline is now pulling flights and denouncing the airport pretty much as the devil incarnate.

What is rather funny in all this - as soon as it announced the decision to pull back on the Brisbane to Rockhampton route - its flights were immediately replaced by Tiger Oz. Oh yes and by QantasLink...

Go figure

Dear Mr or Ms "Jetstar Complaints"

I regret that I have deleted your comment. If you have a pertinent comment to the article I will publish it in line with the guidelines of the site I refresh frequently. However general rants against specific companies should be addressed to that company itself. Thanks and keep reading.
