What are the chances of a flight 'subject to government or regulatory approval' not be given approval? I am considering an international flight (QF20 on a Sunday) and it has this condition at the moment.

Assuming Qantas are within the limitations of capacity between Australia and Philippines, then it would just be a box tick exercise. I don't believe they would market flights without it meeting such criteria.

Isn't this just part of the kabuki dance that defines the process of international relations?

On a separate note; given that he was such a poor communicator of the Federal Budget, how in the world is Hockey going to be an effective ambassador to the US? Is this just a case of a quasi-celebrity on the front face with the real levers of power being managed by experienced DFAT personnel in DC?

Sorry for the brain fart....delete if inappropriate!

That coupled with the fact that Hockey being Grandfathered to the US for a junket role keeps him away from the Canberra coal face and nullifies the thread of sabotage.
