Scurrah hits back
VIRGIN Australia has lodged a formal complaint with the ACCC about comments made by Qantas CEO Alan Joyce earlier this week on VA’s financial state.
Speaking to ABC News today, Virgin Australia Managing Director Paul Scurrah said “I’ve been in Canberra advocating for the whole sector to be supported and I think that’s the sort of behaviour we want to see”.
“I think if people don’t link arms and don’t come together then that’s unAustralian.”
He stayed tight-lipped on if the airline was asking foreign investors - like Etihad and Singapore Airlines - to pump more money into it but noted “any responsible CEO would be looking at all forms of capital and making sure it is available if, and when needed”.
