    Dec 21/Jan 22 list of airlines with Y inventory open for return to Australia

    From what I understand though, isn't the VTL meant to be a reciprocal sort of arrangement? That being the case (and going by what the PM has said), are we only going to see a VTL sometime in 2022 then when they open up to non-residents?

    A380 future post-COVID-19

    I'm wondering if they are actually referring to the Singapore A380 that will be back in service on November 18 between Singapore and London, which was announced yesterday.

    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    As far as I can see, SQ has capped all their flights inbound to Australia up to the end of July 2022, which explains why there is literally no/very limited availability for the flights into Australian ports. From the news article above, it seems they are one of many overseas airlines trying to...

    New Schedule Changes QF2 /QF11/12 for QFi Restart

    What's interesting is that QF have zeroed out inventory between SYD-SIN and SIN-LHR, leaving only inventory for the through journey, SYD-LHR and LHR-SYD, which leads me to think it is possible they are flirting with an alternative stopover for QF1/2 and that it may not be Singapore after all...

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    Never mind that they're not willing to be tested - if they are indeed carrying the virus and are infecting other people around them, it is going to be difficult to establish a link for the people that they have infected as they are not likely to own up to the fact they showed up at the event and...

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    I do apologise - that was probably due to my reply above not being worded correctly. What I actually meant to say was a significant number of the recent transmissions were, as you rightly pointed out above, due to extended family and close friends gathering within households. Sorry for causing...

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    I absolutely agree - it has been mentioned numerous times that a significant number of the transmissions recorded in recent days were not from retail or outdoor activities but from household transmissions. I suspect some of it is possibly not understanding the restrictions fully, but a lot of it...

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    I guess the government did, by default? Like you said in your post earlier, it just isn’t possible to legislate health orders to cover every single scenario/exception and it is a learning process so I wouldn’t necessarily be too harsh with them over why they never worked out that there was a...

    The Qantas call centre now has a different menu

    This mirrors my experience a couple of weeks back. Unfortunately, they did not appear to be very well trained and it is no wonder the wait times are as they are since even the simplest requests would have taken a long time to resolve.

    Qantas Call Centre Long Wait Times

    This is now just getting utterly ridiculous - rang three times today, after waiting over an hour each time, I got sent straight to the survey.

    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    I guess part of the problem is that even if the disease is mild to the vaccinated people who do catch it, they could then pass it on to someone else, who for medical reasons may not be able to be vaccinated, and lead to severe disease in them. That’s why the emphasis on being able to prove a...

    Qantas Delays/Cancellations

    @Mrmaxwell it looks like you are finally on the move as QF2 is now showing as Gate Closed. QF36 however has been further delayed to 02.00.

    Qantas Delays/Cancellations

    Someone tweeted that the delay to QF36 was because a spare part was needed implying there was an issue with OQA. Either way, there is likely to be a delay to QF93 unless that is being formed by the inbound QF94. Assuming all goes to plan and QF36 does depart at 00.40 this morning, there should...

    Qantas Delays/Cancellations

    Looks like there might have been an issue with the aircraft as the flight is now cancelled. This will possibly also affect the return flight QF36. Re-accommodating all of those pax is going to be a tricky affair given how full other flights are.

    Qantas Delays/Cancellations

    There appears to be a couple of disruptions of the A330 fleet today. QF82 is being operated by the delayed QF51 ex-BNE, which only departed after 6pm as it arrived very late from HKG on QF98 (which itself was massively late because QPF had to return to MEL yesterday afternoon operating QF29)...
