Air service is a winner

THE EAGLE has landed and the verdict is in. Strategic Airline touched down in Gladstone yesterday and passengers gave the first flight a big thumbs up.

“I think it’s going to be a great alternative for passengers (flying between Gladstone and Brisbane,)” said Steve Pettit.

When asked if the airline’s lower prices had caused lower service standards, Mr Pettit was emphatic. “Not at all,” he said. “It was at least as good and in some (aspects) it was better. The service was friendlier first up in the morning.”

Another satisfied customer was Louisa Burfield. “It was really good,” she said. “And it was really cheap.”
