    QantasLink centralises 717 maintenance facilities to Melbourne, rejigs fleet bases in preparation for border openings

    Interesting point is the 717 was good for some of the WA inland FIFO sites but places like PBO can't handle the 737, and with the heat coming again the performance is compromised in most Pilbara locations. Are they going to poverty pack the newbies? Always laughed at people grabbing the...

    What are the chances of 'Enhanced' services globally post Covid-19

    How will the airlines recover from post Covid-19 and will they continue to deliver the existing services we value? With crude oil at a low price and historically a time airlines deliver discounted fares will the airlines undercut and maintain their FF programs to get the customer or will they...

    New pay per use lounge for PER

    I wonder if they will have a 'Suitable Attire Policy' and if so will it be enforced? The Bali flights will put his to the test?

    Amazing service from ADL security

    Just goes to show some common sense and a customer focused approach to your job does make a difference. Reminds me of a time i had a staple remover pincer style in a bag and the security (PER) went ballistic, literally, over the fact that i had the audacity to try such a maneuver...

    Terrible Qantas / EK experience (MEL-DXB-CDG / LHR-MEL in J)

    and avoiding the dreaded Dubai 'no information' pit. After a recent trip through there again we also experienced the Emirates care factor when dealing with Qantas issues. "Qantas, what does Qantas mean to us...Who is this Qantas?. As per Dubai Connect fortunately we have young Mr Turbo living...

    Virgin and Jetstar cancel Bali flights due to Volcanic eruptions

    Of an interesting note, having flown on CX171 HKG-PER many times , please have a look at the flight paths taken. We usually cross over Bali but there have been some quite significant diversions in place. Not all Asia based carriers will punch through it. Flightradar24.com - Live flight tracker!

    BA 777 on fire at LAS

    Exactly, except on my VA flight yesterday afternoon, where the attendant recited the emergency action briefing to the front rows but not us seated in the second emergency rows. She was somewhat rushed but we all stopped her and made her recite it to us, much to her shock, not sure if the shock...

    BA 777 on fire at LAS

    This is also a time to reflect and be thankful for the experience and control of all the crew on the aircraft. For all those people who've chastised and abused the 'trolley dollies' for not realising their meal tray should be removed or their drinks weren't cold enough-remember- we are paying...
