Today (Tuesday 15/11), QF is celebrating it's 85th anniversary with the visit of the A380 in QF colours and a huge party in BNE!

Hope they make another 85!

When all's said and done, there'll be more said than done.

In Wednesday's Daily Telegraph they had a great poster of many of the liveries. My step-dad got me two so I could stick them up in my room one on each side.

"The Qantas board could also approve plans early next month that will replace the "most recognised" symbol on the tails of its long-haul aircraft with a less iconic and more gaudy badge — the orange star."

That would be pretty stupid if they did. "Less iconic"? Do they know anything about branding?

It's just a round about way of saying that Jetstar is going to go International and fly the routes where Qantas can't make a decent profit.

You'll never see the Kangaroo gone from QF aircraft.

I do quite enjoy a spot of flying - more so when it's not in Economy!
