The Australian Way

Mon May 10, 1999 4:34 pm

I pinched the Qantas inflight magazine name for a minute(which, Qantas inturn had pinched from Australian Airlines serveral years ago) to Ask for a bit of an Australian coner. Basically, what i want to know is who here is Australian, and what part of the country they are from. Also, which camp (an or qf) are they primarly in support of.

U Know Me, Lufthansa

Yep, Sydney is that way because QF headquaters is there! (along with the mardi gras and the labour party)

Hi Good Blokes,

I'm from Melbourne too, and I am going to sit on the fence for this one, both airlines, QF and AN are World Class!! They are both great to deal with.

Back to SYD though, three months ago I had to sit at the end of the runway for 20 minuts, because of dalays!

Honestly, I doin't know how the airport will cope with the Olympics.

If you hate QF so much why use the name of their inflight mag for your topic?
Sorry people this is not on the subject but what has Mardi Gras got to do with not liking Sydney. Seems to me like you should stay in Queensland.

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.

It's got the image of drugs and crime, like NYC.

And yeah, the olympics-the airport will not cope with the demand. To Spud-NZ is not bad, except a bit too boring when i was in Auckland.

you're from Melbourne too? Wow! Sicko! Which part of Melbourne are you from? I'm from North Balwyn and go to crappy kew High School and I think Keff Kenett is a major loser for spending millions of $ into freeways and the crappy citylink which we have to pay to use it.
Melbourne airport is good i have to say, I sometimes go there once a couple of months for some plane spotting and Ansett simulators. This weekend I"m going into a 767-200ER simulator with my friend, cant wait!
