• Flying out of Brisbane this morning and the lounge is closed.  No prior notification just an apology on check in.

  • At least now there appears to be a plan.  Not a very ambitious one as the second phase should be a lot earlier than 2022, but nonetheless a plan.7 day home quarantine is a lot more appealing than 14 days in a hotel and at a substantial saving to the traveller and the taxpayer.

  • If the government really wants to see a pick up in domestic air travel they should get rid of the mask wearing mandate on domestic flights.Wearing a face mask on a domestic flight in Australia which has had zero community COVID for a long time makes about as much sense as wearing a marine stinger...

  • I would suggest if you are thinking of buying points buy Qantas wine instead. Just bought a box of 12 red’s for $307.80 which netted 15,923 points (including 15,000 bonus points). 14 cartons would get 222,922 points at a cost of $4,309 plus assuming a qantas points earning card paid for i...

  • I think I have a solution for you. My wife and I flew in to MUC on Emirates in F late December. One of the other passengers in F who boarded with a bodyguard that looked like “the Transporter” had a unique way to enter Germany.
