According to a report in Airline Ratings by aviation guru Geoffrey Thomas, QANTAS CEO Alan Joyce [pictured] has slammed Australian regional operator rex for its Trump-styled press releases.

rex has been accusing QANTAS of predatory behaviour in moving onto its routes during COVID and because of that, it would be axing 5 routes, with Joyce speaking at the company’s half-year result saying rex’ accusations were amusing and he refuted the claims saying they were Trump in style.

Mr Joyce said, “I  think Donald Trump is writing the releases…they give us a laugh,” adding, “Of the five routes they say they will cancel, we only operate on one and we have been operating on that one since 2017,” and “They have been threatening to withdraw from 13 routes over the past year but have only exited one route.”

On government subsidies, Mr Joyce said that rex had received 7 times more in subsidies than QANTAS adding, “rex is a $300 million business and has received $130 million in subsidies, which is the equivalent of Qantas receiving $7 billion – 7 times more than Qantas has received.
