Perhaps had Qantas been more open to flights outside of Sydney and/or Melbourne then VA may have missed out. A touch less arrogance on their part may have also assisted.

Oops scrap that - I can't read. From Oct 2020 not this month (doh!).

A brief (ish) moment of procrastination has probably just led me to stumble across the delivery flight of this new premium heavy 787 for Air NZ. Currently flying across the Pacific as NZ6096https://www.flightradar24.com/data/aircraft/zk-nzr

Wouldn't it be grand if Qantas bean counters allowed the marketing department to re paint one of the final ol'gals in the livery of the first QF 747 as a tribute for her swansong.

With a bit of luck it could lead to the late afternoon SIN-JNB flight becoming daily. The 1am ish departure flight makes for a looooong travel day not to mention the evening arrival rather than early AM.

I've stopped relying on my ANZ Black FF for hire cars in Aus. Excesses are going up and up, but the card hasn't caught up. From memory it was $5k (you'll need to read the policy to check/confirm) and half the time these days I seem to be in cars which have $6k excesses.

Would it be nice? Sure. Would it remove any hassles you see (as listed) in a standard lounge? No because half of those people causing the mess will just be moving next door into a Platinum/Business Class lounge. Could they do better in their current lounges? No doubt. I'm sure every airline could...

Might've accidentally booked some J reward seats to get on the old girl for a whirlwind romance.

Most likely related to aircraft availability due to the ongoing issues with the 787's being forced in to the hanger for the Rolls engine issues.

Just to bump this back up -How did you end up Dewy?
