|Are Tiger staff about to get their marching orders?|
Virgin has already stated that they plan to pump cash into the company & increase the Tiger fleet to up to 35 aircraft, but beyond that, seem coy about offering any further "commitment" in such a limited, volatile & potentially fatal business environment. They might be keen, but they're not stupid.
And whilst a rejection might mean an unfortunate crash landing for Tiger & its staff, I doubt it would be the end of the world for Virgin & its' desire to take on Jetstar. There's been talk within the Virgin Australia boardrooms for years about starting their own "ultra" LCC, but it seemed Tiger was getting in the way of them getting a clean shot.
