I hope it all worked out!

Off to compile some stats...
All of the leisure travel went off without a hitch - we dashed out of Canberra when we could. The only flight we had to move, was one planned to Adelaide in Feb. As we had been to Sydney to catch up with the kids, it started the 14 day clock to travel to SA, We managed to rebook in early March, so that went ok.

Not too terrible considering COVID and being Victorian - squeezing two internationals into Nov/Dec pulled things up a bit (and meant there hasn't been a single full year without an international trip, which weirdly makes me feel better).

42 segments, 56,657 miles/91,180 km (not shown below is DRW-LHR). Biggest achievement? Travelling to Perth as a Victorian 😂. I would have achieved the Grand Slam, but HBA was cancelled several times (including for some friends' wedding) and I eventually gave up.

OK, I rejigged my spreadsheet (organised by status year, as you do)

Total for 2021 74,310 miles: 13 international segments for 69,326 miles and 8 domestic sectors for 4,984 miles.

Cancelled: 13 domestic sectors for 0 km and 6 vouchers.

IME it was a great deal easier to navigate international travel ban and fly overseas than it was to navigate on-off border bans by Qld. International paperwork is painful but once you get on the plane it is still fun in J.

Wierd look award to QR cabin crew in plastic doctor uniforms. Narky and scary award to QPS border control.

Cheers skip

CBR-SYD-AKL-SYD-CBR (it was nice seeing the words "Relax In International First Lounge" in my QF app for a little while, pity I never got to go to the FLounge)

CBR-MEL-PER-MEL-CBR (that one was meant to be all in J too)


Flights actually taken: 🙂
