“I think travel experiences will be phenomenal everywhere by the time we get to Christmas. I even think the July school holidays will be great.”
Virgin Australia has needed to defend towards accusations of a hostile office tradition following Bain Capital’s takeover, with Hrdlicka now going through a Federal Court case after claims of alleged bullying introduced by a former chief pilot.
Hrdlicka on Wednesday declined to remark additional on the matter and as a substitute pointed to a beforehand launched assertion by the airline.
Virgin Australia has denied all allegations introduced by the previous worker, Michael Fitzgerald, and shall be “vigorously defending the matter”, which can go to courtroom on June 13.
Hrdlicka spoke on the sidelines of the Sydney launch of their invitation-only Beyond Lounge, previously The Club, which marks a sequence of bulletins from the airline designed to tempt company travellers to Virgin. A revitalised Virgin is aiming to seize a 33 per cent slice of the home market.
Only high-profile determination makers, enterprise leaders and “key opinion leaders” will obtain invites to the unique lounge, out there in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane’s home airports, which Hrdlicka stated was reserved for the airline’s “most special guests”.
The Lounge options à la carte eating, a cellphone concierge, semi-enclosed lounge areas and a non-public boardroom.
