    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    Wouldn’t middle ground led to the 3sqm rule? ;)

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    Yes that's what I thought - your earlier statement was a bit definitive that it won't - but it could well do that.

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    Is that completely true? I know they don't know that it does, and they are warning that it might not stop you contracting covid and even spreading it - but I didn't not think they've reached this conclusion definitively. I didn't think they had the data to back this up yet.

    https://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/politics/queensland/queensland-border-to-stay-open-despite-new-case-in-sydney-20201203-p56k72.html Also the 48 hour rule is not a thing. Additionally the criteria for closing the border is not the same as it was to open the border. We can’t be living life...

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    Queensland has already said they’re not closing the borders. Stop the scaremongering, you’re as bad as the media.

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    What about the hotels that have both quarantine and regular guests? (dedicated floors). Unless you're locking the person up in the hotel overnight, that person is still going home on the train, going to woolworths, going to the pub etc.

    Probably would have just been easier to park everybody's status like maternity leave etc until the gates open again. Or just have a flat rate, say 300SC per year to retain for all tiers. I've won on some of Qantas's moves and lost on others. Overall I am quite happy - especially the nearly 1K...

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    Actually the closed border was giving her tremendous political grief. I doubt she will be rushing to close the border unless there is a mass outbreak.

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    Let's not get ahead of ourselves. It's one case most likely from Quarantine. The system is working. It's only if they find community transmission that we need to start worrying. If any state closes it's border to NSW because of this, I hope Gladys starts restricting HQ in SYD to NSW...

    In my experience the QLK leg from NTL is not included in the fare - so you will pay the BNE fare and then whatever the fare is from NTL-BNE (the web will give you one price but that's how it's calculated). Might be some slight differences with taxes etc - unsure if this will change with the...

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    This graph is not helpful because: a. It includes the second wave which distorts the scale when I’m talking about the first wave in isolation b. It includes all cases, most of which where in home or hotel isolation. c. per captia stats are not always a valid comparison of outbreaks. If the NT...

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    Oh sorry, I misread your post. I guess where we disagree is I think SA would do the same again (I believe both the premier and CHO said exactly that) and from past performance I think VIC would do the same. Hopefully we don’t have to find out.

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    Not to the same scale, but nearly 2000 locally acquired cases. Really the first wave was contained to NSW, hardly any cases by comparison in the other states. The fact it didn't get out of hand like Victoria is not because it wasn't tested - it's because is was tested and succeeded...

    Yeah, I checked myself midway through replying. They have good J award availability too. Amazing. I've been calling for this for years. QF group has treated NTL as a leisure market but most of the pax are Government / Defence / Aviation (Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Raytheon) / Mining etc...

    Shut the front door. Did I miss an announcement that 717s are going on this route? OMG! This is the best news ever!

    Unusual flight - QF865 NTL-SYD B737-800

    Thanks for the update. My contact left the airport at 10pm and the pax were still onboard when he left. I went to bed around 11pm and we still had a light show around that time. I wonder if any pax stayed the night? Curious they didn't use a repositioning flight number today, the normal...

    My membership ends end of March. I did a big US trip in Jan so requalified easily, to Mar 21. The status support gave me 900 SCs this year (600 + 6x50), I've done a couple of NTL-BNE trips and did a NTL-BNE-CNS-DRW//DRW-ADL-SYD trip in October. I've already requalified to Mar 22. With the...
