Decision time for airline appeal

Air New Zealand and Qantas chief executives Ralph Norris and Geoff Dixon are expected to decide within a week if they will continue to fight for their planned alliance with an appeal against the Commerce Commission's ruling against the deal.

Norris met Dixon in Sydney this week to discuss the issue and determine if further action was worthwhile.

But no decision was made and both are waiting for more advice and opinion on the chances of a successful appeal.

Dixon earlier told the Pacific Aviation Media Association he had "not completely" given up on the plan in which Qantas would take a 22.5% stake in Air New Zealand.

The Australian Consumer & Competition Commission has also turned down the proposal and that decision is being appealed in the Competition Tribunal.
