    Qantas Past Positive Medical Clearance form

    Got my reply from Qantas approving my exemption - took 26 hours, 44 minutes, with the paperwork submitted 5 days before the flight.

    Qantas Past Positive Medical Clearance form

    It'll be a 2+ hour trip each way, but I may be overly excited by the idea of going, alone as an adult, to Legoland...

    Qantas Past Positive Medical Clearance form

    Okay, that's only marginally more fancy than the ACT Health certificates - I would not have assumed that counts as "signed". I will actually be doing exactly that for a day trip to JB - but I was originally planning to fly to KL so I had to look up the rules for flying. Re public transport -...

    Qantas Past Positive Medical Clearance form

    Note that there are some countries (Malaysia is the one I'm aware of - of course they're not a QF destination) where past-positive travellers are still required to pass a RAT - the benefit of the past positive clearance in that case is that you'll be allowed to do a RAT rather than a PCR. Not...

    Qantas Past Positive Medical Clearance form

    Thanks for this thread - I'm heading to Singapore on Monday! (JQ on the MEL-SIN segment, first time I've ever flown JQ long-haul, wish me luck...) Annoyed that I had to go pay a GP to get this certificate, but on the other hand the doctor also reminded me that my typhoid and tetanus shots...

    2022 travel plans

    I've just booked my first flights in 2022 - back to Canberra after visiting the family for Christmas! Yet to plan anything international though, my long service leave is coming up mid-year though, so I'll be able to take a decent break! Got to get myself to Malaysia (and probably Singapore...

    Apologies for missing it - I saw the initial post about it but neglected to RSVP, and in the event I've been sick all week anyway. See you next time!

    Our Cocos Christmas honeymoon

    Thanks for the report - I've got a trip booked for myself in August, I'm well aware from the internet that flight delays are a big issue so it's useful to read your experiences about how things panned out for you.

    CBR Autumn get together 06 April 2021 to hopefully celebrate the vaccine roll out, if they get their act together

    They let me, along with another friend, into the lounge to go find my friend who was already in there with her husband who wasn't flying. So three non-flyers in total. The fact that a) my friend is a wheelchair user and her husband was helping her move around the airport, and b) I told the...

    CBR Autumn get together 06 April 2021 to hopefully celebrate the vaccine roll out, if they get their act together

    Apologies for missing it - in an extremely ironic turn of events, I had to miss this in order to meet with a friend who required some urgent help... in the CBR Qantas Business lounge. I think it's the first time I've ever gone into the lounge while not flying myself.

    Australian state border restrictions

    While it's true that all state borders are open as of today, I think it's technically not true that all territory borders are open just yet. According to the statement from AFP Indian Ocean Territories at A new message from the Territory Controllers – Update 12 March 2021, which as far as I can...

    Fly Pelican Canberra-Port Macquarie

    As someone who regularly does CBR-SYD-PQQ I'll have to try this out. One wonders how sustainable it is though. Well done to Canberra Airport and the ACT Government on getting so many additional routes going.

    Booking a flight with confidence?

    I'm hoping to book a week away, somewhere domestic, ideally before the end of the year, failing that Q1 2021. Right now, the 2 domestic destinations I want to go to most are still closed off, as of today, to ACT residents, and they're both reasonably expensive, which normally means I'd be...

    What's your favourite 747 memory?

    My favourite memory of a QF 747 was being overbooked on a CI flight SYD-TPE-HKG, and being rebooked onto a QF flight (on a 747) that went directly SYD-HKG, and departed SYD several hours earlier, meaning that we arrived at 6pm rather than something silly like 1am as was originally planned. I...
