Playing catch-up not a winning strategy

The motoring public loves bypasses because they are a quicker way to their destination. It’s a different story for those in a bypassed town because diverted traffic means less business.

Yep always thought that the Qantas plan to route pax to London via Perth was to be short lived. People don't like being couped up in a metal (or carbon fibre) tube for more than 10 hours at a time.

Unlikely to be much of an issue as it's only a flight a day. People of Perth will still fly and, really, nobody from Melbourne or Adelaide will spend time in Perth, they will merely just change planes.
