• Well ignoring the anti-WA politics here, I am very happy the flight runs through Perth. I get a one-stop flight from Hobart to Rome with no terminal change required. Much better than two-stops and a bus transfer in Sydney.

  • So assuming home quarantine is required on arrival, how exactly is that supposed to work with a connecting flight to regional centres or other states such as South Australia, ACT and Tasmania (?) which may allow home quarantine by then?

  • What about running flights from Queensland, Western Australia, South Australia, Tasmania and the Northern Territory to countries with low or no COVID cases (e.g. Hong Kong, Taiwan, New Zealand, etc.)? I would be very surprised if any of those states/territories open up to New South Wales by Chris...

  • Qantas managed to launch Perth from Hobart last year without subsidies and is now daily year round on the route with up to twice daily flights over summer. Not being able to hub through Melbourne and Sydney for months the airlines were forced to offer direct flights which have remained with corre...

  • This is a very dishonest article. Qantas is not changing its status earning or other fare conditions for any of its marketed fare types. It has simply moved a fare bucket into the discount economy category so its systems can offer an additional price point. The consumer will notice no difference.

  • PER-HBA status credits

    Dec 09, 2020, 09:57 AM

    Business gives 80 status credits for a paid fare and 38 status credits for a classic reward (with Points Club/Plus).

  • You will need 1300 further status credits to attain platinum. The offer is a fast-track to gold, not the gifting of a bonus 600 status credits.

  • Perth arrivals processing time?

    Nov 24, 2020, 09:37 PM

    I flew into Perth from Hobart on Friday night. There are four desks after a temperature check which take about a minute to process each passenger. The Hobart flight was 100% full in both classes, so I’d guess about a 45 minute wait for the final passenger.
