Qantas qontinues to qomplain :: The Australian
"Their (Emirates') attitude - that just because they've got more rights into Europe, they should be given more rights into Australia - just doesn't work," Mr Gregg said yesterday.
"The Australian Government can't get more access into Paris, so why should Australian carriers be penalised for that?"
Mr Gregg also reiterated Qantas's long-held view that Emirates receives government support not available to Qantas, a claim Emirates vehemently denies.
"Government subsidies come in many forms," Mr Gregg said. "The fact that their Government doesn't apply a corporate tax rate or a personal tax rate, to me, is a bloody big subsidy."
