New Townsville Qantas Club open

On my regular visits to TSV I've been watching the new terminal take shape. Wonder of wonders last visit the new Qantas Club was open! The great thing is that it is now on the other side of the security minefield so when the flight is called you don't have to walk past the queues at check-in and on to security which can cause delays (nothing like Sydney though). The new Club is nice and a lot bigger - although smaller than I would have thought considering how cramped the old one would get with a few flights leaving at once.
Now Townsville has joined the 20th century and we can use airbridges to board all planes now! Surely Adelaide can't be too far behind! Still I would miss that "Beatles Tour" feeling!

I spend quite a bit of time regularly in ADL, so I feel that I can comment here....

At last, Mikey (Mike Rann) has pushed for a better class of airport, because he can finally get the message that people from interstate and overseas don't really appreciate landing at the tin shed.

It used to be that if it was raining cats and dogs, you got wet at ADL when disembarking. Thankfully, the temporary (I hope) roofing has helped a lot.

What ADL needs, esp. in the DOM section is a decent restaurant or a cafe at the DOM arrivals bit. A snack machine and a coffee machine does not constitute 'real' food and drinks IMHO.

Oh good, it is about time - every time I have been through TSV has been early/mid afternoon, and the QC has been PACKED - EVERY single seat has been taken, along with most standing room as well.
