KGB: Virgin's John Borghetti

The Virgin Australia chief says he was surprised by the timing of Qantas' capacity attack, the Tiger deal is not indispensable and industry is to blame for weakness in the leisure market.

Virgin Australia's chief executive John Borghetti tells Robert Gottliebsen and Stephen Bartholmeusz:

The capacity battle with Qantas was "a war that had to happen", but its timing was surprising. Had Qantas attacked earlier, the door would now be almost shut for Virgin on the trans continental route.
