LAST year, Air Pacific announced it’s intention to purchase Airbus 330-200.

Its CEO, Dave Pfleiger, even thought it was a great marketing strategy to make the announcement in a grand scale.

I wonder if anyone thought of the considerable cost of changing from Boeing to Airbus, retraining pilots, engineers, support crew, ground handlers and building new hangars. It is mind boggling to think of the cost of these changes.

Dixon Seeto, of the tourism industry, announced the success of incoming tourists into the country and the success of other business houses in 2011, except for Air Pacific.
