Rumour has it that Qantas will have a 747-300 operate some services into and out of Brisbane in late July to provide additional capacity for Kiwi's to come see the All Blacks thrashed.

July 28th, ExpertFlyer shows QF120 as op by 743 AKL-BNE-SYD, but it would appear they are no selling it as AKL-SYD, only as AKL-BNE and as BNE-SYD. So a one-off chance for a BNE-SYD International flight on a 743.

Also on July 31st for the great Kiwi exodus, QF43 will operate as a 743 SYD-BNE-AKL. So perhaps a nice Monday morning flight to BNE for some Sydney folks.

I have learned (the hard way) not to make such predictions.

You hear about the time the All Blacks played the Japanese squad?

The Kiwis performed a haka before the game and the Japs responded with a haiku.

Kiwis come in hope,
Making faces at our team,
Go home without cup.

Speaking of Japan and rugby I see campo's try scoring record has been broken.

I was told authentically some time ago that Tasmanians were proof that kiwis could swim.

This couldn't possibly be correct now, could it?

50 Kiwi's a day leave NZ for Oz on one way tickets for permanent residency , such is state NZ today. However Kiwi born Aus resident's have higher incomes and lower unemployment compared to Oz born citizens. (I left Kiwland for Oz in 1980)

Some years ago I was at AKL Int dueing an afternoon of an all Kiwi S12 final . Every TV in the terminal was switched to thi Rigby, with hundreds glued to each screen. When the game was over, they all seemed to disappear; I'm still trying to work out where they went... :confused:

Yeah I'm gutted I'll be in the air for the final.

When flying NZ during a big game they announce final scores, and usually some progress scores as well :D
