Senator POYSER - My question is addressed to the Minister for Civil Aviation. Will the cutting of Trans Australia Airlines schedules give a decided advantage to Ansett Airlines of Australia on certain routes, including the Melbourne to Canberra service? Has TAA Flight 496, which normally leaves Melbourne for Canberra at approximately 7.15 on most evenings, been permanently cancelled? ls Ansett Airlines now the sole company operating a flight at approximately this time to Canberra from Melbourne? ls it also a fact that Ansett Airlines Flight 396 left Melbourne last night with a near capacity load and that more than 50 per cent of the passengers would normally have travelled with TAA? Does this mean that rationalisation of flights on economic grounds will be carried out to the advantage of Ansett Airlines?
