Virgin Australia to compete with ‘full armoury’ after end of Air NZ alliance: Group executive

    Virgin Australia group executive Rob Sharp said the carrier is “ready to come in and compete with our full armoury” in the lead up to the end of its trans Tasman alliance with Air New Zealand on 28-Oct-2018 (nzherald.co.nz, 11-Oct-2018). “We’re not looking to throw in capacity for capacity’s sake, that’s typically what triggers cut throat comments”, Mr Sharp continued, arguing competition will centre on product and service delivery, “not throwing a whole bunch of capacity at it and getting into pricing wars”.
