• Perrotet has jumped the gun. I shudder to think what he would have done had he been in charge and not Bereklian.He would not have shut down any place in NSW when the current lockdown was put in place. He ignores the health advice and recommendations and this news is a clear demonstration of his a...

  • What a crass and unfeeling statement. It IS the Government’s role to stop people dying because of this virus. The Government stuffed up the whole process from the beginning and are now happy to excuse themselves by declaring that it is now unstoppable. The “spin” has been s...

  • My other concern is that the decision makers fully understand that by opening up, some people are going to die. The UK have opened up and infections and deaths have dramatically increased. Who takes responsibility for that? So, who will take responsibility if Australia opens up similarly, and the...

  • I'd booked flights from Hobart to the Gold Coast with Tiger as they had direct flights then. They cancelled the flights and Virgin then provided a different itinerary via Melbourne. While Virgin has limited flights, none depart from Hobart, so I'm stuck awaiting border reopening which may not oc...

  • The DFW A380 flight is good in economy as Qantas ensures business is full. That's where they make their money, not economy. Full cargo, baggage and full fuel means economy pax is reduced so maximum take off load is not exceeded. Economy pax take over rows after takeoff to be horizontal when sleep...

  • It's an unfortunate fact that Qantas staff will be put in business class even if regular pax request an upgrade using points. Have seen this as I actually knew the staff flying and had previously requested an upgrade for myself and family from premium economy. Complained after getting back home b...

  • Would you drink aircraft tank water?

    Of course I would. Potable water is perfectly safe. Your bottled water supplier does not provide water that is safer. It's just without taste. Sampling on bottled water shows that it's got the same content as tap water, but without chlorine or fluoride.
