• This is all terrific news BUT which fare class is the discount based on. I’m a little skeptical that the % might be taken from a published fare (or a flexible, high priced fare) and there will be no difference between this initiative and the prevailing best fares in the market.

  • Maybe they'll be bought as freighters...nice big belly on them albeit 4 engines aren't that efficient. 

  • Is REX going to fly out of Terminal 2 in Sydney as they do now?

  • SQ and CX are already flying limited services to a myriad of Australian ports. UA and DL are also serving Australia albeit not daily atm. Then there are smaller airlines such as China Airlines and mainland Chinese. Qatar ain't the only one but your point about QF missing out on the action is valid.

  • This could be a diversionary tactic by REX to reduce the price of the new VA which they would like to invest in. Perhaps their real strategy is to build a hub and spoke airline connecting trunk and reginal routes. At the moment they don't control the feed traffic into their rural towns through SY...

I hadn't had a chance to switch it to airplane mode and the flight was 14 hours long. Can you imagine my embarrassme...

  • International from Hobart?

    Mar 01, 2018, 08:49 AM

    I don't know if anyone here is too young to remember....TAA and Ansett's very first international flights in the 70s (I think) were operated from HBA to NZ (AKL?)...If they were sustainable then, why not now? Yep to the Chinese tourists, but what about the other most common visitor groups to Aust...

  • Citibank hey? I have a debit card on a transaction account. Same one you've all suggested. I agree that it is the best option. However, their security is way too OCD. On a trip to US and Canada (Citibank's bread and butter market) they suspended the card three times when they suspected that it wa...
