    Arrivals Cap still in place for Incoming flights up to end December

    Agree with you, though I am glad they did not 'urgently' build anything 18 months ago - this always leads to wrong place, botched job, dodgy contracts, vast cost over-runs - you know how it goes...

    QF B737 Replacement Competition

    Personally, it would always be in the back of my mind. If and when the need arises to look at the possibility, I would also be looking for earlier or later flights with a different aircraft.

    More Changes to the QFF account page

    'QF seem to be constantly tinkering with their site and most of it is not for the better.' Perhaps they should revert to the old rule that if it ain't broke, don't fix it!

    Drone at Sydney Airport

    Assume you mean in Sydney, but the Coogee that I know of is a beach in the western suburbs of Perth where you could fly your drone, and there is also an island just off the coast - Garden Island.

    Qantas SYD-HNL route to become QF103/104

    Thanks Matt - when I thought about it a bit more, I realised that your trip was a bit early for the FFGs, and thought perhaps hewas on an exchange posting in the US. But the numbers applicable for the FFGs were in the several hundreds, and the F jolly didn't last much longer. Another reason...

    Qantas SYD-HNL route to become QF103/104

    Matt - 'six points of separation' or 'it's a small world' adages come to mind. I did the reverse trip as a Chief in the Navy in January 77 PER/SYD/NAN/HNL/SFO/SLC/DC on the way to a new posting working for the Naval Attache in our Embassy. I assume he was posted there to pick up one of the...

    Qantas 2021 financial results

    He already did - the deal to get the Perth connections in the first place was on the condition that the WA Government had to upgrade the domestic QF terminal which came in for more than $15M. I doubt he would get a similar repsonse again...

    Jetstar pax fined for vaping, abuse

    Qantas extends status extensions until June 2022

    I haven't been keeping a close eye on the extensions over the past year or so, and also haven't read all of the posts above, but the onine version of The Oz this morning stated that the extension was until at least June 2023, with the proviso that members book one elgible flight before their...
