Tips and rumours

Qantas management cull? ... Alan Kohler turns to advertising ... Oscars star meets Bob Katter (!) ...

From the Crikey grapevine, the latest tips and rumours …

Qantas cuts: management first? Qantas boss Alan Joyce is standing firm, but what about his key lieutenants? The word from one mole is Lyell Strambi, CEO of the domestic airline business, will go first, followed by Simon Hickey, who runs the beleaguered international arm. “Joyce is attempting to stamp out any dissenting management,” says our source.

    “Scrap the C-tax and Qantas fortunes will soar. If they don’t, Joyce is playing Abbott’s game”?

    Qantas has a big problem; and its Alan Joyce. For Qantas its hard to soar like an eagle when its being managed by turkeys.

    The carbon tax was suggested as being around $106m for the year.

    Sure a substantial amount, but given the billions of dollars in Qantas, hardly a flea on the elephant.

    Add the $106m back in and they still suffered a loss, ergo, the problems are not related to the carbon tax.

    Just as the original press release said. Sack that man who told the truth!

    Great to see Alan Kohler’s involvement. The Arthur Sinodinos amendments are diabolical, and everyone in the Finance industry who isn’t a serial abuser of their customers should be supporting the original legislation, pre-Sinodinos suggested amendments.
