    Centurion annual fee

    These days I rarely carry my wallet. Indeed my loyalty cards are scanned in. I’m with Meadowfield and prefer to fly low and seek practical value. The prepubescent at Maacas wouldn’t give a toss is my guess and is the least person I feel necessary of impressing!

    What's your prediction on the Australian Dollar?

    Really depends on the dollar and RMB. We are looking at a changed economic outlook like we have never before modelled. Traditionally you could forecast an FX based on forward interest rates (central rates). These days ?

    Ask The Pilot

    Hopefully the proposed 'rescue' flights for stranded citizens will keep operations current to allow for a ramp up towards current capacity when required. This will allow regulatory authorities to authorize capacity as required as opposed from a standing start. As noted they are not the most...

    Qantas A380 refurbishment news and updates.

    Yes I hope so but I am not hopeful. The decision to reintroduce will be based on profitability not nostalgia. The long range four engined plane is virtually a thing of the past (the airlines that still have them can’t underwite the replacement CAPEX to upgrade in better times - my mind turns to...

    Qantas Domestic & International Business Class meals/menus

    Yes too much liquid. Don't forget airlines suffer from turbulence so given we are not at the dinner table thought needs to go into this. Some tend to forget that with meal creation. Also breadrolls that flake everywhere. Never understood why airlines serve those in favour of those that are...

    Can Boeing and the 737 survive?

    Boeing have healthy defence and space businesses. Good time to scrap the Max and pay out compensation (what loss - you're not flying). It seems from my untrained eye the program is flawed and the plane is above it's limit. Air travel will be slow to rebound as we do everything on Zoom and...

    Can Boeing and the 737 survive?

    I saw a Bloomberg story on the Max they said it needed a complete redesign, the old body it was based on doesn’t work for those configurations. Boeing promised that pilots would not be required to be re-trained. Interesting. It’s a managment failure. Boeing went from being a competant...
