• Exactly this. "Then show must go on"US and UK are by no means the shining examples. AU government and health systems should be able to tolerate X amount of cases without locking down borders, economies etc. Victoria the obvious exception as they need a few weeks to get the 500-700 cases per day u...

  • My favorite part of this is "it's not realistic in the long term"Is the only option to have these rolling lock-downs until a vaccine is available AND widely distributed?

  • What did Joyce actually say around the July date? A lot of outlets are reporting no international travel until July 2021 but it seems he meant the "majority" of international flights won't resume until July 2021

  • Wonder if many Gold FFers would be averse to being asked to use the Emirates or BA lounge? QC members without status don't have that luxury and at least the BA and EK lounges are of similar standard?

  • My first reaction would be Adelaide.However, from what I can see Sydney has an arrivals cap of 350 per day, however Adelaide has a lower cap of 500 per week. Wondering if a premium economy fare exists into Australia at the moment as a way of jumping the queue? Maybe Singapore airlines?

I'd be surprised (but happy) if this happened...

    The only thing i can think of as an alternative is over 55s "shield" and await priority doses of vaccine.Under 55s get back to working and travelling, employing social distancing, mask wearing in public and good hand hygiene.But then again, govt must have considered this option and discounted it ...

    Skier, do you honestly think within 6 weeks there will be ZERO quarantine for all incoming arrivals?At the very least it will roll back to quarantine at your fixed address, like it was before it went mandatory at a hotel. Right?
