1-Oct-2010 11:24 AM

Etihad CEO James Hogan accused Qantas CEO Alan Joyce of "trying to deflect attention from Qantas' own issues" after he attacked Etihad's profitability (SMH/The Age, 01-Oct-2010). Mr Joyce commented that Etihad was "losing a fortune" adding that "even Emirates are now struggling" to turn a profit. He also questioned the viability of Etihad's alliance with Virgin Blue on the Australia-Europe route.
