I think you need to gameplay what you think a State like WA might do - the noises from WA authorities is for continuing the same domestic/international border restrictions into possibly April 2022 and how that plays into other possible special dates. I guess there will be a lot of gameplaying on what to do come in the timeframe 1 to 15 November, and still lots of water to flow under the bridge between now and then. National Cabinet might even make some progress on home quarantine later this week.I don’t think that’s accurate on SIA cancelling all flights to Australia it appears they are cancelling extra flights that they thought might have been possible before the extra cap cuts.
With no idea when caps on arrivals will be lifted, Singapore Airlines has been forced to cancel at least one flight a day into Australia over the next three months.www.smh.com.au
It’s terrible terrible situation that is happening because of uncertainty that shouldn’t even exist but it’s not cancelling all flights, at least not yet.
I have no idea about Qatar or Emirates but the ability to charge whatever they want for freight should keep at least some flights.
It’s time for Fed Government to force the issue, state that no later than x (a date in December) no caps will be applied by Federal Government. That forces State Governments to announce what is happening with quarantine.
The December date should be safely after 80% Doherty Plan target. Let’s move on this now and allow airlines to get logistics on a ramp up (which is unlikely to be 2019 levels).
