I think these have both been discussed at sometime in the past but one is new to me, and the other a very old memory revisited.

BA MEL-SIN: A female captain. First I can recall, though I'm sure there are plenty about.

BA SIN-MEL: A "Louie the Fly" experience. We copped the dreaded spray! Except instead of Oz staff on the ground, we copped it from BA cabin crew at start and end of flight (I think just after takeoff and just before landing). Was one-handed from a sort of cyclists drink bottle with a pressuriser in it. Can't recall being sprayed for maybe 15-20 years!

Had a female captain on flight SYD-BNE boxing day.

Flying experience no different to any other captain including a smooth landing.

Spraying the cabin is a requirement for entry into Australia unless the aircraft has been treated with a long-lasting pesticide on a regular basis. All Qantas international aircraft are treated in this way during their maintenance cycle and hence do not require cabin spraying when approaching Australia.

Some visiting airlines maintain some of their aircraft with the required maintenance treatment routine and can operate those aircraft to Australia without needing spraying. However, of they substitute with an untreated aircraft, they must spray in-flight.
