If Virgin Goes Bust, Australians Will Only Have One Airline That They’re Not Allowed To Travel On

There are fears today that the nation’s second largest carrier, Virgin Australia, may cease to exist, leaving Australians with just one airline that they are unable to take their holiday with.

School teacher Sally Lambert from Brisbane said it would be sad to no longer have a choice of carriers when not booking a hypothetical weekend getaway.

“It would be a real pity. It’s nice to be able to look at two different airline websites, compare the two, and then not book with either of them. If Virgin goes under, we’ll only be able to not book with Qantas,” she said.

Ben Redding from Sydney said he had been a loyal Virgin customer for years. “I never fly with Qantas. But it looks like now I’ll have no choice but to not fly with Qantas,” he said.

Aviation industry analyst Rachael Mead said it was important to have competition in the non-existent Australian airline market. “What we’re heading for is a situation where one carrier will have a monopoly. At the moment Qantas accounts for about 50% of Australia’s zero flights per day. That could soon rise to 100%”.

School Always Finishes At 10am On Tuesdays, Home-Schooling Parents Assure Child  

Finishing up school before lunch on a Tuesday is the way it’s always worked, a Sydney family has assured their seven year-old child.

“You’re getting mixed up with something else”, Brad Simpson told his daughter Lulu, after she said she was certain school continued until well after lunch.

“School has always finished mid morning on Mondays and Tuesdays. And often on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays as well – ask your Mum,” he said.

He said it was a well-established schedule that shouldn’t be messed with. “Maths runs from 9am to 10am, and then there’s a break for free time between 10am and 5pm. Now’s not the time to go mucking around with the routine”.

He said it was now time to finish up times tables and switch to watching TV for the rest of the afternoon, which is what the school’s schedule has always demanded.

Wednesday has been declared a pupil-free day.
