Ansett Australia was a good Australian airline which once catered for the Australian domestic and shorthaul international market. But sadly it went bankrupt about 2 years ago. Their aircraft were clean and comfortable, their staff were generally very pleasant and helpful, apart from the off snotty nosed person. Ansett had regular services to major domestic hubs which linked with smaller destinations. They codeshared with many small airlines which increased the number of routes they were able to offer passengers. They were also a member of the Star Alliance.
