Inability to use strategic alliance tool successfully In the final section the report conducts a strategic evaluation assessing overall performance and measuring performance through triple bottom line reporting and the balanced scorecard approach. The report concludes that Virgin Australia is in a stable strategic position and that their transformational strategic change from a low cost airline to a corporate travel service has been beneficial for the company.
Warnings concerning other miscellaneous items are also included in the equipment regulations. Excess baggage will be charged for and taken into consideration before handling. New travel rules state that passengers can take liquids or gels in their carry-on bags, but only if they are in 3-oz.
Although it may seem obvious, passengers may not carry on knives, guns or any other sharp objects that may be used as weapons, including scissors.
Even nail clippers may get confiscated. For this reason, they must be in a single, 1-quart clear plastic bag. Virgin Travel states that you should arrive at the airport two to three hours before your flight in order to give you time to clear security and customs.
Concerned with high threats of new entrants, or barriers to entry, the economies of scale and scope required is very high and elaborate.
Virgin contains many different products that are price-cut due to the economic downturn of the recession. International regulations must be met and switching costs for some consumers to Virgin Travel can be costly.
However, Virgins location in California provides it with substantial access to raw materials.
The rivalry is high in Virgin Travel because many other companies are in competition with their many different dabbles of modes of travel. These include passenger airplanes, trains, rent a car, hot air balloons, space travel, and cruise lines.
However since rivalry is high in the travel industry, Virgin is able to benefit from their competition. The supplier power is moderate because there are only a few suppliers as airline manufacturers.
Suppliers for airplanes include Airbus and Boeing. For train manufacturers, they include Siemens and Bombardier. Most airline services lease aircrafts because they are too expensive to own and are a substantial investment that can be depreciated over the years.
The buyer power is high due to the different choices of consumer transportation. Consumers do have the option to drive domestically to take the airline industry out of the picture completely.
Yet, for people that do business abroad, flights are essential and seen as a necessity. On the contrary, there are a plethora of airline services that offer cheap flights for those buyers that lean more toward a cost leader than a product differentiator.On 17 February at am the Strategic Group's directors decided that the Strategic group of companies including Air Australia, Strategic Engineering Australia, and Strategic Aviation, would be placed into voluntary administration.
