    China SARS like Respiratory illness (Coronavirus)

    Mine was a general comment about antibiotics and scrips.

    China SARS like Respiratory illness (Coronavirus)

    Exactly the point my travel doctor made when I saw him last week and asked about the N-Coronovirus risks, mitigation etc. Not to be blase, but to get a bit of perspective. Interesting statement up thread that Australia had stockpiled masks. My Dr. said there was a shortage of masks. Maybe...

    Ask The Pilot

    Could the Mayday call be debatable? If the engine fire light was out, ‘in theory’ the situation has stabilised so could a ‘pan pan’ be in order? Or does a fire, going or not ( as far as info at the time is concerned), always mean a mayday? Not questioning the call! Just wondering.

    Great to hear that 😊. Terrible location for a conference, though 😉

    The definitive thread on QF IT gripes.

    Something like that has happened before. After some particularly silly tinkering by the work experience kids, the old ‘book business’ button was disabled. No one could book a business fare for ... I think it was a day. 🙄

    SQ Tips, Trips and Tales

    QF was the best alternative for me for that journey. I got over ‘loyalty’ years ago.

    SQ Tips, Trips and Tales

    A divorce rather than the end of a courtship!. As soon as I run down my KF miles in April, that'll be it. SQ used to be my overwhelming airline of choice (in J) but now one to avoid if I can. Their F is great, no question, but that's a luxury when points are limited. When I chose QF (paid J)...

    Project Sunrise: A350 or 777X?

    FWIW with respect to Sunrise, B777X has flown for the first time: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-51253066

    QF A380 reconfig rollout

    Welcome to AFF @HGills . I can't help you with your question, sorry, but have a look here and it might give some background and past experience https://www.australianfrequentflyer.com.au/community/threads/qantas-a380-refurbishment-news-and-updates.88027/page-32#post-2052258

    Platinum One experiences?

    Ah, .. of course. An at-the-gate upgrade must be processed sometime, and Kiwi_Flyer saw it on MMB before he hit the gate.

    China SARS like Respiratory illness (Coronavirus)

    SBS in its news bulletin just reported that the President of China announced a ban on live animal trade in markets etc. That's pretty vague but hopefully it means that they will be doing something about that petri-dish environment for exotic and 'novel' diseases. You can only hope

    Platinum One experiences?

    Not doubting you, but how does a points upgrade materialise between check-in and the gate? EDIT: D'oh! See post below :) I had a similar experience a couple of years back. Op-upped to F at check in (first time in years and years; very happy, Jan); red light and buzz at the gate - I wasn't...
