GOOD to see some aggro back in the airline industry (where have the characters gone?) with Richard Branson of Virgin getting a rise from United Airlines boss Glenn Tilton (pictured) for suggesting the US carrier may abandon flights between the America’s West Coast and Australia. ”You know that we have a ‘win Australia’ strategy, you know that the company that predicted that we might pull off the route is having more difficulty on the route than we,” Tilton said. Looks like Branson found his mark. No wonder Tilton’s touchy, he is under major pressure, piloting the proposed merger between United Airlines and Continental Airlines. If successful it will create the world’s biggest airline. See SMH article.
