It's a Foreign AOC approval - which is vastly different from a local operator CASA AOC.

Latvian wet-lease specialist SmartLynx has secured authorisation to conduct operations from Australia, where is intends initially to use Airbus A330s.

That would be very interesting, and somewhat controversial

Several work groups within Virgin are seething with discontent at the management's savage cuts and treatment of employees as cost burdens. Wages and conditions were slashed during a time the airline's continued existence was in doubt. A number of contracts are due this year, conditions are far behind other employers and management just wants to hold the place together with sticky tape long enough for it to be hastily sold.

If further flying, especially long haul flying (Haneda) was to be outsourced the pilots and flight attendants would scream blue murder.
