Our dollar will surely improve tomorrow, which will effect the availability of ff seats.

U.S.A. is expensive. Parity was good. Unfortunately long gone.

Edit: Also, tipping is rife. It’s now the culture, like it or loathe it, but then again, we have a whole thread on that.

May be worth reporting.
sorry but advise what & I will edit if political.

You do realise that fortunes of many airlines, will be greatly effected by last night.

nope. It's much cheaper now than when at parity, to ski in usa. Many places, that get many aussies adjust their prices to suit. It's called yield management.

I know this may be a technical point, but it has been mentioned above before about the conditions to call in the 'R' word, and we're not there yet. I can see enough in my own surroundings to know that things are flat, but that doesn't count.
ok

1. retail is stuffed (online having some impact)

2. real estate, including building, developing is stuffed

3. hospitality is stuffed, or at least restaurants, maybe not burger joints or take away

4. many airlines inc emirates are posting massively reduced profits

Many under 40 years old, have never seen a recession & suspect many on this forum are under 40.

It's going to get very ugly(didn't matter who won last night) The only thing that changes, is that confidence will go up a bit IMO.

tipping is only for those who want to tip. Many australians are finding it tough & so many do a budget to see if they can go o/s. The last thing they are going to do is tip, when you don't have to.

if you've ever skied anywhere, you'll realise how incredibly cheap it is to ski in USA right now, meaning for next season. These airfares are cheap & there are so many of them. Yes they got down to $668 few eeks back, which was flying air nz, if you're game, OOL/SFO return, but don't think that was u.s. ski season. Fiji air did $750 few eeks back. Suggest after election result they might try to push up their loss leaders by $100 or $200 & see if they sell.

Several family members in the building industry tell me the opposite. They can’t keep up with the work on the horizon

work on the horizon ? Signed contracts or ?

Good luck to them if they can get it. Building costs are certainly on their way down as many traddies are desperate for work.

Anyway, the $838 fare have been extended for purchase til end of May.

Contracts signed and are work coming out of their eyeballs. Can’t get enough tradies in Adelaide to keep up with the work currently
