After a fsc behave like LCC, customers will consider the airlines and pricing like LCC.
Sounds familiar, BA is facing the same issue.
To be honest Darwin is not worth the investment, MI is trying to make it work with tag-on with Cairns. Royal Brunei, AirAsia and Garuda have left long time ago.
I am particularly more worried with the statement: " Bellew said four routes were on the red list, with flights to Australia and New Zealand, in particular, suffering."
Which AU/NZ routes are currently bleeding?
Even if the airlines upgraded itself, it will take a few years for customers to be convinced and pay the premium pricing.
