Joyce’s big gamble as Qantas wakes from hibernation

Joyce’s big gamble as Qantas wakes from hibernation

As Australia waited for the National Cabinet to announce the return of flying, Alan Joyce seized the initiative early and revealed he'll hugely increase capacity in July. But will his plan be profitable? Host Phil Tarrant, Christian "Boo" Boucousis and Adam Thorn share their insights as to whether or not demand will be there. They'll also discuss events across the ditch, where New Zealand has declared victory against coronavirus and dropped social distancing. What does this mean for the future of international travel and border reopenings? Finally, the team also chat about whether The Buffet bailed too early by selling his airline shares; the demise of Delta's McDonnell Douglas Mad Dogs; and the world's largest electric plane.
