• Calling Scott Morrison, where are you?

  • Personally, I think Jayne H is way out of her depth when it comes to dealing with 'business travelers' - irrespective of which fare/seat on the plane they sit (Eco, EconX or J-Class).  Holiday makers fly with a different mindset, have a far more casual timetable and, generally, lower expecta...

  • Boeing need's to show just how much faith its own board of Directors and Senior Management Team TRULY DO HAVE (or not) in the plane.  Let them all fly together in the same plane doing a 'road show' between all major US airports across all 50 States, one after the other, consecutively - witho...

  • It's not too late to change, RodH.  Perhaps Calamity Jayne will get the message ??

  • Honestly, what has "newly-minted CEO Jayne Hrdlicka" been doing these past few months?  She's had ample time to get the Business Class experience sorted, but to tell me I have to wait until next year?  She's lost her marbles, because I'll be giving QFA my business until I can see whethe...

  • What is there to do and see in Taiwan? Their tourism promotion body needs to start advertising down here, I suspect they'd get a fairly favorable uptake.

  • Given Lockdown 2.0 was caused by Victoria (relax, I'm one of them too), we're lucky the rest of Oz didn't reach for the Nuclear codes and press 'Launch' !!! We came so close .... SO $%#@ing CLOSE to a resumption of air travel within Australia. Not only cabin crew and pilots, but I suspect 3-4...

Virgin 2.0/Bain may ...

    I had to speak to Virgin Velocity during the week on another matter (TravelBank dollars that 'expired' last week under the 12 month rule). There are a number of regular business operation matters that can't be 'progressed' (or re-introduced) until AFTER the August creditors meeting to formally a...

  • Have since learnt that 'Conditional Credit' has been issued with an August 15th, 2020 expiry date, and told to call back once Bain are formally owners after the creditors meeting. Conditional Credits get a new, separate TravelBank Account No., that's not visible online, hence record it safely an...
