i don't dislaike Qantas at all. this is the prolem with the internet - there is not body language and when the ever there is any sarcasim around, some people pick it up, others don't. I perfer Ansett, but, i don't dislike Qantas. And don't worry, if i had to chose between living in Sydney or Melbourne, i pick melbourne. Sydney is okay, but i like Melbourne's culture better. Never the less, i have chosen Queensland. If victoria's catch phrase is 'one the move', Queenslands is 'sit under a palm tree and drink beer. We're harldy problem free either, after all, we did produce Pauline Hanson and North Queensland still just about has apartied alive and well. As for QF, well, there are some things i think they should do differently, but, overall, they are still a long way a head of a lot of carriers.
