Guys- can we just get back to topic? As much as I love to engage in some trans-Tasman banter, this is not the thread for it. And how about we all just get that damn jab as soon as we can, on both sides of the lake!
Where are you traveling to (Sydney from memory) and can you bring it forward?I was meant to fly on Sunday but fear you might be right. Huge issue for me but it is what it is.
I’ve changed it all to fly to Melbourne instead as luckily my new employer does not really mind where I will be based exactly and Victoria looks like a better chance to get out of this at the moment.Where are you traveling to (Sydney from memory) and can you bring it
Haha typo. Although it is true the bubble and both countries have gone to cough.Typo or deliberate??
But I just read on the Victoria website that NZ is now a red zone so I guess that’s it for the time being.
You have been issued with a green Travel Declaration to enter Queensland. Your address indicates you have come from New Zealand. If you are still in QLD you are required to get a COVID-19 test and isolate at your residence until you receive a negative result. Testing centres can be found at www.qld.gov.au/covid19testing. Continue to monitor for symptoms until 14 days have passed since you were last in New Zealand.
Unfortunately, this hasn't happened- AirNZ did exactly the same as Qantas had done two weeks ago: Canceling the flight and putting the money into credit rather than offering me to re-book to the next available date. With the one big difference that Qantas refunds you the actual money if you ask (after about 8 weeks wait) while AirNZ is refusing to do that.Book something now. Most of the Air NZ flights are still cheap as they haven't loaded the full post 30 July schedule yet.
Once they do if your flight is cancelled then you'll get rebooked anyway.
(I don't think this is quite correct as WA currently lists NZ as "very low risk".)
My late June flights to NZ which I had rebooked to October have now been cancelled by QF without even the option of rebooking, just moved straight to a flight credit.
I think you are right. The number of ICU beds they have in the whole country limits their ability to "let it rip".I'm on record for predicting we'll be able to fly to London or Los Angeles before Auckland.
Thanks for the tip, good to know. However, I have given up making ANY flight bookings until there is some certainty about the ability to travel on the flights I book. And with NZ that doesn't appear to be any time soon.If you quickly ring up you can revive the booking and select new dates
