(CNN) – Qantas CEO Alan Joyce’s Saturday message was so startling, he had to say it twice:

“We have decided to ground the Qantas domestic and international fleets immediately,” Joyce said. “I repeat, we are grounding the Qantas fleet now.”

But Joyce’s  "shock and awe" strategy earned some respect. “It is a huge and gutsy call. Alan cannot survive a decision like this if it goes wrong,” an unidentified senior aviation industry source told the Financial Times.
