THAI needs to modify its rehabilitation plan to survive: Sumet in Thailand News Posted Wednesday at 03:29 AM 14 hours ago, PatOngo said: How can an airline within a country of 68 million get to such a state? Meanwhile, not too far away in a country of 26 million: The Qantas Group has achieved an Underlying Profit Before Tax of $1.30 billion and a Statutory Profit Before tax of $1.27 billion for the Financial Year 2019. Perhaps too much Southeast Asian and Middle East competition concentrated in a small area? Especially Air Asia, Malaysian, Singapore Air, Cathay Pacific, EVA; then further afield there's Qatar, Emirates, Etihad and some newer mainland Chinese ones such as China Eastern. Australia is far removed from these locations geographically, but, yes--Qantas also has significant competition going in and out of Australia.
