Senator HENTY - I supply the following answer -

1.   The question as to which airline's Boeing 727 would first depart an airport was agreed following direct discussions between the airlines concerned. The Department of Civil Aviation approved the airline timetables in terms of air safety.

2.   Having decided in discussion the overall scheduling for both airlines, a coin was tossed to decide which airline should go first at the commencement of each day's operations.

3.   In Fact, the airline that is first in the morning, namely Ansett-A.N.A., is second in the afternoon. In other words, schedules are rotated each half day by agreement between the airlines rather than being rotated weekly or monthly.
