Ansett was a lemon: Clark

Ansett was a lemon: Clark

ANSETT was a lemon that New Zealand's national carrier should never have bought, NZ Prime Minister Helen Clark has said.

Ansett's former owner, Air New Zealand, has been widely blamed for the airline's collapse after placing it in voluntary administration last year.

Today, Ms Clark said the purchase of the now-defunct airline should never have gone ahead.

PM jeered by Ansett workers

Prime Minister Helen Clark yesterday dismissed renewed Ansett staff anger at Air New Zealand, saying she was not expecting any problems on her journey home from Queensland.

Ms Clark attended the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting at Coolum over the past four days, and was due to fly to Auckland last night via Brisbane and Sydney.
