• From the start I thought quarantine was an authoritarian overreaction to what is a self-limiting flu that 99.8% of people recover from. If my understanding of history is correct, the last time Australia mass quarantined all arrivals was about 150 years ago, but back then many arrivals were actual...

  • Well, it's a start. A lot of flip flops and unexpected easing of restrictions happening almost simultaneously all over the world.Here are a few other examples: Less than 2 weeks after reducing it's quarantine for both vaccinated and unvaccinated arrivals and reducing the number of tests post-arri...

  • Every country is following the same script. Thailand has recently (effective October 1) reduced the number of post arrival tests required from 3 down to 2 (for all travellers, vaccinated and unvaccinated) and starting November 1, like Singapore, there will only be an on arrival test for the 10 na...

  • Why doesn't Qantas fly the kangaroo route via Bangkok and Hong Kong anymore? Would be better offer more options. As nice as Singapore is, not everyone wants to transit there, it's pretty boring. There is also certainly quite a bit of tourist and business traffic to Bangkok and Hong Kong. Seems Qa...

  • If it comes down to price, then of course I would prefer to stopover (let's say if it's on a flight from Australia to Europe) a stopover in Bangkok, Hong Kong or Singapore for a night, if it comes out as a couple of hundred dollars cheaper after paying for a nice hotel, dinner and a bit of shoppi...

  • Patrick, you're speculating here. No airline so far is banning the unvaccinated, even if they said they would in the future. It would be a violation of human rights to prevent a citizen of a country from returning home. That is never going to happen. Let's see what happens when the time comes, sh...
