"Just read in the Australian Aviation"
Slightly off topic but what do you think of the "new look" AA?
I find it VERY difficult to read compared with the "original" format. So much so that I'm thinking of cancelling my subscription and telling them to put the money towards changing it back or at least getting a decent graphic designer instead of someone's relation.

Is QF going to use the names of state capitals on the A380s, or maybe something else? How about the six states that make up the Commonwealth of Australis - New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, Tasmania, South Australia and Western Australia?

Could also use the names of the two territories - Australian Capital Territory and Northern Territory, plus the four Commonwealth Countries QF serves - New Zealand, South Africa, India and United Kingdom.

Quoting QANTASforever (Reply 7): Oh - Bill - Don't forget Heard & Mcdonald islands, The Coral Sea Islands Territoriy, Christmas Island, Cocos Island, Norfolk Island and the Australian Antarctic territory
Don't forget Ashmore and Cartier Islands and Jervis Bay Territory while were nit picking.
And before you get on your high horse about Jervis Bay it is a separeate Commonwealth territory which is not governed by the ACT but the Commonwealth gave ACT courts jurisdiction in, and in relation to the territory as if it were part of the ACT. The ACT is contracted to carry out some administration of the territory for needs such as, motor vehicle registry, education, health etc.

Quoting UpperDeck79 (Reply 15): ...which Australia doesn't actually own. Antarctic doesn't belong to anyone according to international agreements.
And according to Australia, we own a third of Antarctica.
This happens all over the world - hopefully in time Australia will have its sovereign territory recognised by foreign nations.

lol You suppose that I don't know that Jervis Bay is an independent territory? Ha - trying to jump the gun a little aren't we? I'm unsure as to where exactly I gave the impression I doubted the independence of Jervis bay from the ACT - having nightmares again Bill?
Quoting Wunala (Reply 18): Or what about naming them after our politicians?
I would drop everything to fly "The Spirit of Gough Whitlam". Although the thought of riding John Howard makes me dry-reach.
