Future charter signings will be a joint venture.

Strategic partnership for charter ops... basically that each airline will continue to operate its existing charter contracts in its own right but they will work together on future contracts.

Which means, if it is too big for Alliance, VAR will pick it up with A320,B737 or visa-versa with Alliance F50/70/100.

I wonder if Alliance F70/F100 will replace some of the E-Jet which are going to be withdrawn ?

Interesting.

I don't see Alliance operating VA's EJets. A second operator is a reduction in efficiency. Not that that stops VA these days. Scotty Mac's appreciation for the Fokkers stops not far short of fetishism.

Interesting to see if the ACCC approves. It is literally reducing competition in the markets where these two companies operate.

The ejets are going as VA have surplus capacity, so no need to replace them. While that may change in the future, I doubt you will see much placement of Fokker's on RPT routes, the equipment is not up to spec, ie no gate to gate IFE or streaming, limit galley etc.

I would be surprised if Tiger fly these domestically. They haven't added much since the latest A320 came on last year, probably only half of it is being used. Also, they could work their other aircraft more.

It would be costly to introduce the 737 for them wouldn't it?

Or maybe Yusef heard this from somewhere and it is actually going to happen?

IIRC only the E190s are news, and still no fleet changes for international re more aircraft and A330s on Fiji during peak.
Regarding the announcements on 737 and A320 changes above, they are changes that have already happened in the last few months

They've gotta do something with them... the proposed schedule for MEL/ADL/PER to DPS only requires 2 airframes. I know they have to cover maintenance, but not like that...

It will be interesting to see but I would bet that they'll just leave them sitting around half of the time.

I count it as about 1.4 airframes, not including maint downtime. expect MEL-ADL flights on TT 738s with wifi IFE, and others on a schedule recovery basis.
