It's from the investor preso and covers FY16, in this case an already delivered aircraft, as is the case with some of the 738s.

I didn't mind Airnorth's first E170 (VH-ANO) and VirginBlue (before it became VA) felt a little tighter in the leg room department. No E190 aircraft operate near by (both Albury and Canberra are operated by ATR 72 [another aircraft I've yet to fly on]), so can't comment on them. :/

There will be some additional DOMESTIC flying for the Tigerair painted 737s.

Today's announcement about a VA and Alliance partnership provides some interesting options on VA's future fleet as well, especially as Alliance are taking delivery of all those F70s/100s ex Austrian (does anyone know how many?)

Any clues as to what that might be, Yusef? Just operating on the existing domestic network alongside the A320s or do they have something else planned?

Also last week Alliance announced that it had won a new Santos contract

Quote:
Alliance Airlines has signed a new five-year contract with Santos covering the oil and gas company’s operations in South Australia.

As part of the new deal, Alliance will start jet services from Adelaide to Santos’ oil and gas operations in the Cooper Basin.

“The initial requirement is for Alliance to operate between 10 and 16 services per week in its own right and to coordinate and manage airport operations and intra-field subcontracted flying,” Alliance said in a statement on Friday.

Alliance chief executive Lee Schofield said the new five-year contract – which includes both jet and turboprop operations and airport management – was won in partnership with Avmin Air Charter Specialists and would “provide Santos with a total package including ground support and airport management at both Moomba and Ballera”.

“This new contract adds to services that Alliance have provided to Santos in Queensland since 2006,” Schofield said in a statement.

This may give then fleet flexibility if they need to use something bigger then a F100

Win, Win all round

Without wanting to take this off topic, but just a quick question which has also been raised elsewhere... does anyone know if the new Alliance / Santos contract means Cobham will cease operating Adelaide-Moomba?

Adelaide's Advertiser newspaper reports that Cobham will cease flying FIFO services on the Adelaide-Moomba route after February 29, 2016.
