There were factors outside of Qantas " control that led to its FY2014 underlying loss of AUD646 million, but that also included Qantas adopting a flawed strategy in its domestic capacity war. A more rational Qantas is calming down and the gains have been immediate. Qantas expects a 1H2015 profit, implying that the disastrous 2014 was not the terminal decline that some have trumpeted. And nor does Qantas need to sell its prized loyalty division. The pre-tax loss was dragged down by the shock headline figure - with just a touch of spin - of a post-tax loss of AUD2.8 billion. With that number behind them, Qantas can only look good now. That non-cash technical adjustment was driven by a one-off AUD2.6 billion write-down of its international fleet , confirming long-held views the fleet was over-valued but never previously addressed."
"These things won't happen overnight but bit by bit, rail and road infrastructure has been upgraded in recent decades and the freight task is set to further double in the next couple of decades - we can't relax" he said
"It would be good if CSX would try to accommodate the community's concerns and try to come up with a solution for the benefit of the city as a whole" Clarke said. "But if they cannot, we can't support them."
"It would be the same thing you would do if you were buying a car, buying a house; You have to ask questions," said Carter. "This is the most important thing you have in your life-your children. So, you want to make sure they're safe" she said
