Case Assignment
Like many airlines around the world, leading Australian airline Qantas is facing very difficult times in spite of having a 65% market share in its home market of Australia.

However, selling the program would also mean allowing another company to have access to Qantas’s most loyal customers, including their business-class and first-class customers. In the long run, there is potential the sale could backfire and prove unwise.

Your assignment will be to apply the background material concepts to Joyce’s current big decision.
