Australian budget carrier Virgin Blue is to legally challenge the Australian Consumer Competition Commission's (ACCC) decision that allows Qantas to acquire Impulse Airlines' routes. Virgin claims Qantas misled the ACCC over slot and competition issues. Under the integration, Impulse's wet leased Boeing 717s, now in Qantas Link livery, have been moved from trunk routes onto Queensland holiday routes previously serviced by Qantas Boeing 737s.
