Qantas seem to have noted that everyone requires a PCR test 72 hours prior to departure. This is now an added cost particularly to the UK where only on arrival 2 day testing is required. Previously this was destination based

Poorly worded statement at technically a day 2 UK arrival test would still be within 72 hours of departure. I'm sure they mean prior as you say

Oh yeah, definitely clear on the requirement within 72 hours prior to departure for a flight to Australia.

It’s just the press conference today indicated it would be required on departures from Australia too, rather than being based on the destination requirement (UK day 2 test, US pre-departure test etc.)

Half price QFF points redemption sometime for 2022 travel would be nice My Joyce.
Any Business class seat availability to LA next year EVER would be nice Mr. Joyce. Just had a bit of a look and you can basically forget the whole "Double redemption seats in 2022" nonsense they've been blurbing about.

Cheap seats in the back, as per usual plenty. Proper seats up the front, hardly any. Nothing has changed...

Business award seats to SFO in March on QF! And plenty of availability on JL and CX to SFO, SEA and LAX :)

Thats correct, its required for any intl sector on QF (even when not required by the government, like LHR), Just fly another carrier and save the hassle.

Alan Joyce mentioned on Sky News today that they'll be looking at Project Sunrise for direct flights from Sydney and Melbourne to New York and London. Presumably looking at placing an order for the planes that is.

Does Airbus have any spare A350-900s at the moment?

If they did, would make sense for Qantas to lease a couple for a few years to start training their crews and make an easy transition to A350-1000s - and in the mean time help fill the gap on the non-ultra long haul routes.

More set to be announced from QF on international flights:

Dan Andrews just announced he has been on the phone with Alan Joyce this morning and Qantas will have some ‘exciting international announcements for Victoria’ very soon!

Exciting!!!

(Maybe QLD missed the call? 😂)

From ABC report
—-
Premier Daniel Andrews confirmed that from November 1, international travellers coming to Victoria would not have to quarantine if they were double vaccinated and returned positive tests.

"You'll be able to leave after the first of November … when you come back, if you are double vaxxed and you've been tested before and you agree to be tested within 24 hours, then you'll be able to go home," he said.

He said the hotel quarantine program would be reduced to just a handful of hotels, and the Mickleham quarantine facility due to open later this year would be used for those who were unvaccinated or had received a vaccine not approved in Australia.

Up to 150 people who fit into those categories will be allowed in each week to undergo quarantine.
