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”.
