    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    Do you really believe that people that cannot take the vaccine for medical reasons represent a number remotely as low as you state? Using your logic we would also abandon all funding for the disabled because they represent such a small percentage of the community.

    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    How do you think my 40 yo sister who has a life threatening condition and cannot be vaccinated will fair if she gets COVID-19 off your kid? Do you think there are others in our community that may be in the same boat? Herd immunity depends on your kids being vaccinated in the same way as your...

    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    Perhaps you don't understand that our community will not reach herd immunity while a substantial percentage of Australians remain unvaccinated. Kids may not die from COVID but they can infect others.

    Arrangements for return of overseas students announced

    That's where a $500,000 fine comes in. If you make the penalty large enough people will comply.

    Arrangements for return of overseas students announced

    So the obvious response to that is that if there is accommodation that is available to house the incoming students, why is it not being used right now to bring in the 30,000+ stranded Aussies? I have no objection at all to bringing in students. Only that we are prepared to cut special deals...

    Arrangements for return of overseas students announced

    I understand your point but also that there are 30,000+ Australians desperately trying to get home. If we make special arrangements for a bunch of foreign students then we should make special provisions to bring our people home too. How about a GPS connected ankle bracelet to stop you leaving...

    Arrangements for return of overseas students announced

    You thought wrong. If a student can quarantine in their student apartment ( which it more than likely is in this case) how is that any different than an Australian quarantining in their own apartment? Assuming neither are sharing households.

    Arrangements for return of overseas students announced

    If it is ok for foreign students to quarantine in their accommodation facilities, why can't returning Australians quarantine at home?

    QF still not budging on claimed 31 Oct 2021 resumption of non-NZ intl flts [now December]

    Sure did. Despite the prime Minister claiming there isn't a timeline on the vaccine rollout, there absolutely is. CSL has 3 million doses already manufactured and stored. All that is required is assay testing from the TGA and AZ. We will be moving forward soon. As for concerns about the AZ...

    QF still not budging on claimed 31 Oct 2021 resumption of non-NZ intl flts [now December]

    I'm confident we will be able to travel early next year, and to that end, I booked J flights (points) to Tokyo for mid-January next year. The government cannot keep us locked up forever.

    WA mines

    It's been about 5 years since I worked FIFO but all of the 6 or 7 remote airports I landed at were sealed. Big mining companies are like spoilt children that don't like to share the sandpit with the other kids, which explains why many have their own airports, and sometimes, their own train...

    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    It's staggering that in 2020 there are still dinosaurs like this one roaming around.

    Qantas extends current status Until at least March 2021

    I'm one of the lucky ones too. Got an email this morning indicting my status expiry date as the end of Feb 2022.

    Long wait for refund for cancelled reward flights Qantas - a common experience?

    A few days ago I contacted QF via a FB message and they got back to me yesterday. After providing a few details to them I had an email from them early this morning saying the refunds had been processed. Using social media seems far easier than waiting on hold for hours
