• NSW & Victoria, the most badly infected states allowing people to travel abroad when 80% of the population are vaccinated. What are the authorities wanting - to get them out of the states so the numbers of infected seem to reduce? I'm from Queensland where the smug anny pally is ruling the ro...

  • Maybe I'm the cynic among those who enjoy flying on an A380, but I never have. In the 'olden days' pre-covid19 most people from the east coast had to use an A380 to fly to London. (There's no way in a fit I'd go via Perth, much and all as I love that city). Vaccinated or not, I think I'll wait a ...

  • Brisbane Qantas Business Lounge is a wonderful doozy. I don't go there so often now, but it's great to meet 'old friends', staff members from the almost defunct international lounge and the new domestic one. It's comfortable, but I do wish there was a quiet somewhere for parents with small childr...

  • You trust guggle? The date to which you refer is October 2019. A lot has happened in the big wide world since then. Remember Covid19 came and stayed?

  • I've read quite a few hypotheses above, but until many things regarding the relationships between travel, ports of call, dates, airlines and covid19, I'm chicken and will admit it. I used love bouncing onto a Queen and going abroad, but their days are over and it looks like mine are, too. I'm sta...

  • Qantas further status extension

    Nov 29, 2020, 06:19 PM

    Losing status credits is a right pain, but with just national travel there's no way to attain and/or retain the upper levels. A trip from the east coast to Perth achieves 30-40+ credit points while that to the US 90-120+ (both depending on the class of travel). I guess I'm just going to lump it a...

  • Australians working overseas

    Nov 29, 2020, 06:04 PM

    Why would I want to travel abroad? Too many countries are hot beds of covid-19. I used travel frequently to the US and UK for business and leisure, now I wouldn't dare. After leaving Australia, how do I get home? How long mandatory quarantine (at least a fortnight)? How much out of my pocket? I'l...

  • Qantas Centenary Celebration

    Nov 29, 2020, 05:54 PM

    I went to Longreach for its celebration. The village had a public holiday, school children performed in choir and band, service organisations were present, and there was cake - a decorated one for show and patty cakes for all attendees. David Fysh (clearly some relation of Hudson) and Tony Martin...

  • Qantas A380 refurb schedule

    Jun 28, 2019, 10:52 PM

    I realise Qantas want profits, profits, profits and that means readucing seat size and pitch. All this reduction in comfort for passengers is sending them elsewhere when alternative and more comfortable airlines fly the same routes. Why bother with premium economy when the "comfort" is really lit...
