• Hi ATIATA could also just do nothing and let more airlines go bust.  Your common flu or cold surely shouldn't be compared to Covid-19......if so why is the entire globe in meltdown!  Isn't Covid-19 far more infectious and has also the potential to attack organs including the brain (Park...

  • Hi Davidgreat news......did you ever receive my email to you several weeks back where I suggested this approach? Testing is the only path and rapid testing will be no different than checking luggage for explosives.  Logic should mean that also staff will need to get tested and that both...

  • Nouflyer, exactly why better testing is critical.  Have you considered the following:- how can we be assured that the world will have an effective vaccine, we are still waiting for a Blanket flu vaccine - no issue not being able to travel for now, but how about the possibility of never ...

  • Thanks Patrickgetting fast and accurate testing is as important as a workable vaccine.  Sound tests are actual, vaccines will rely on people agreeing to taking a vaccine, the effectiveness and again, that people remain truthful.  Surely, if passports are pampered with, vaccination proof...

  • As raised before....only a rapid test at the airport will make this work.  A covid19 negative test should be no different than going through security and been checked for explosives or having the correct passport. The only difference should be that nobody gets into the main airport terminal,...

  • Thanks so much....I will give the suggested path a go. No wonder I am still awaiting a return call from Etihad. Also, thanks Chris, I wasn't aware that the airlines only get paid/exchange points when the flight was taken. Always learning.

  • An interesting scenario. I have booked a one way ticket via Velocity on Etihad going Frankfurt to Melbourne on 31.7.20 for my daughter. She was getting to Europe with China Southern. Both airlines have not made any contact with her on what to do with her upcoming flights. China Southern doesn...

  • I fully agree.....it is very misleading along with the huge delay in obtaining a refund for both points and taxes. Any waiver of fees was based on traveling to a country which was a no go country such as China and Iran. My flight went to Germany and did depart (without me)......my problem would...

  • Got the same and selected he refund with standard cancellation fees. I would think Qantas is trying to hold on cash, meaning any taxes charged. They should not charge any fee in way of reduced points as refund.....is it 3000 points, but worth just to accept versus being on hold for hours many t...

  • just keep on following up your refunds for both, points (minus the cancellation fee) and taxes. I terminated my flight to Europe early March, checked my bookings a few hours later....phoned back (another 1.5hrs on hold), was told there was no cancellation.....so we cancelled the trip again and w...
