What most in this discussion miss is that the 717's are reasonably young airframes in so far as cycles are concerned, and owe QF zero dollars. Sure, an upgrade to the interior would be nice, but they are an efficient bus for the routing they cover.As for the F70/100's, there is an extensive suppl...

Scurrah announced that VA will be ordering the Max 10 instead of the 800 for first delivery in 21, giving the airline the opportunity to fit out these airframes with JB’s business class for trans continental. Done properly these will release the A330’s for more Asian destinations, a...

If you're leaning towards a c/ c cover, definately look at Amex plat , the insurance is through Ace Insurance, who are on the ball, added benefits are 1 free flight with VA to any Aus or N.Z. City per year, and 1.5 points per $ spend on the card. The free flight covers the annual fee.

I use Cover-More insurance, you can buy an anual policy on-line.. I have coverage on my Amex Plat card, but I like the safety of an extra insurer incase of emergancies in medically expensive Countries.
