    "oneworld" award (132.4K/249.6K/318K/455K) Planning - The Definitive Thread

    I was mostly not in Australia from September 2019 until March 2020 which made it difficult to do these calculations as the system I use for these is locked down to only being accessible in Australia. Then covid happened so there was no point doing them anymore. Once international travel is back...

    Australia to Reduce Incoming Int. Passenger Capacity from July 2021

    DFAT has failed twice so far this month. The first fail was when they sent out the DEL flights to the people registered for the UK. The second fail was when they did not send out the UK flights to the people registered for Ireland (they normally do). On tomorrow's QR904 into MEL it's looking...

    Given TR is non refundable in a lot of cases ... it's not much of a wise backup!

    Australia to Reduce Incoming Int. Passenger Capacity from July 2021

    A sign of how sad the arrivals cap issue is... Today's QR904 into MEL... I have 3 passengers in Y. There are no other Y pax at all and there's just 8 pax in J.

    Australia to Reduce Incoming Int. Passenger Capacity from July 2021

    They haven't had that capacity. They recently had to do an urgent scramble to bring on more hotels especially in Brisbane. The Voco Gold Coast is being used again after they weren't being used is another example. These hotels have all been unprepared in all of this. Now they have realised they...

    The hospital should apply for them to come in above the arrivals cap. NSW has a process for this.

    Some airlines don't care, but the vast majority do. The risk is being denied boarding whilst mid trip and you risk the entire award at that point. It's just not worth the risk.

    Australia to Reduce Incoming Int. Passenger Capacity from July 2021

    The halved cap is continuing until the end of October. I suspect the government does not plan to formally announce it for backlash reasons. There is going to be a very large amount of offloading in the coming 1-2 weeks. Qatar has started already...
