Chased up my refund with Qantas (was 50% of booking LHR-MEL-LHR in J as I had flown one leg), she noticed it had been waiting since March and forced it through immediately. All up 20 minutes on the phone to sort out a 3 month refund!
WOW wow wowAbsolutely floored.
My non-refundable sale fare flights to/from Cairns (purchased last November) in the next 10 days have been cancelled by JQ.
Went onto Webchat a few moments ago and got a message saying we are very busy and expect long delays.
Within 5 minutes, got a response with "I see your flights have been cancelled, would you like a (1) credit voucher or a (2) refund". I said 2 please. Instantly a message saying "your flights have been cancelled, a refund will be made to your visa for the full amount within 14 business days to the amount of ......, is there anything else i can help you with"
Very happy. No fuss, no bulldust, straightforward.
Given the terrible rates of infection in most EU countries, it’s more hypocritical than ironic to me...How ironic, USA banned other countries, now the EU has banned USA (and Russia and Brazil)
EU Preparing A List Of Countries Allowed To Travel To The Bloc (United States, Brazil & Russia Excluded)European Union and Schengen countries have slowly relaxed internal travel once the first peak of the Covid-19 passed, and the infection rates within the bloc have significantly reduced.

We are currently in Airlie Beach which has a large backpacker population. When travel restrictions were being imposed there were a lot of backpackers who were unable or unwilling to catch flights home.
Apparently the locals "adopted" them for several months but they are now starting to return to the backpacker accommodation. They are working on local produce farms and in restaurants as things open up for school holidays.
A great local story
