Regional airlines and the communities they serve have been provided with subsidies of around $300m - $200m in direct subsidies to communities and $100m to underwrite the running of the regional airlines on regional routes, and we're talking about 12 regional airlines not just Rex (and excluding Q...

Absolutely this could be "Virgin II" in all but name only. Same applies to Air North and Alliance. All 3 of these are potential vehicles for a new national airline but Rex in particular has been very well run and at one point was the worlds most profitable airline (pro rata).No one in their right...

Qlink absolutely should offer J on Q400 services given where they fly and how long some of the sectors are.I recently flew Fiji Airways (Nadi to Apia) on a J equipped ATR with a small J cabin demonstrating that it most certainly can be done and done reasonably well even down to hot meals and drin...

@Himeno - there was originally a very dated photo of the now demolished Canberra Regional Aerodrome. This has been corrected to show Canberra International - a stunning terminal.

Hi all, I had an issue on a Qantas flight to CBR-MEL-SIN in April where I was turned around by ABF. The reason they gave me was my flight hadn’t opened. I tried to tell the staff member that I was already checked in, flying from Canberra, I had my boarding pass and luggage checks, but all s...

I've flown many sectors with MH both long haul and intra-asia and have always found the service to be excellent. As far as the lounges are concerned I have used all of them at KUL in both Satellite and Regional terminals. The First Lounge is meant to be a quiet, relaxing haven complete with sle...

to maximise points and SC earn, fly QF into either SIN or BKK then MH into PNH via KUL.if you just want to get your 100 SCs to qualify for Gold then flying MH from MEL to PNH (return) will do it.Long-haul earn rates on MH are rubbish but intra-asia is very good indeed and business is often heavil...

it is not good enough that JQ takes that long. they actively promote QFF and the fact they are a "Qantas Group Airline". by comparison, in the last few months i've flown sectors with Fiji Airways and Air Niugini - points and SCs were through in 24-48 hours.i have a love/hate relationship with JQ...
