So I just called Qantas help desk (I am gold status) and they told me our direct flight to Hamilton island is still on for tomorrow morning - after I insisted that could not be true, the call centre person checked with a supervisor and confirmed it is still on. Seriously! I know they are in NZ but one just needs to turn on the news to know there is no way this flight is on. Anyone know what I should expect. I do not want to go to the airport tomorrow with 2 children- one of whom will be missing school - to be told to turn around.
