Re: Australian Aviation Thread - September 2020

This is a great article about private pilots flying in to SYD. Great that they have been able to do this. “The little planes that could: Sydney airport opens up to hobby pilots during pandemic.” https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2020/sep/23/the-little-planes-that-could-sydney-airport-opens-...

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - August 2020

Qantas are using the 787 for Antartica flights. Dubbed "the world's most unique scenic flight", Antarctica Flights plans to take Aussies on Qantas 787 Dreamliners to see the icy continent from the air. From November, travellers will be able to take day trip flights lasting between 12 to 13...

Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - August 2020

I think we need to remember that NZ has an election in a few weeks and the government is not going to risk re election by opening borders.

Have seen some comments that opening the borders isn’t that holy grail some are saying it will be.

Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - August 2020

Any bubble with QLD may change that wouldn't you think? There will never be a bubble with QLD if not with all of Australia. Would basically mean QLD choosing NZ over NSW/VIC etc. Not going to happen. I disagree. I think it is highly likely that there will be state bubbles with NZ with QLD/WA/TA bei...

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - August 2020

I’ve been checking the Alliance BNE - PPP since it started and I see it fluctuates between F70 and F100. Is this simply a numbers issue? I’m assuming now JQ and VA are back on the route the numbers aren’t quite there as they were in late June when it started.

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - May 2020

This thread has recently completely derailed off topic into a very political-orientated one and straying into a mundane political debate. Sure, flying has been completely affected by how politics have been played, but surely we can have a politics and CV-19-free thread to avoid more of this rammed ...

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - May 2020

I would hope after the administration period Scurrah can stay on at VA even it was a lower position, unfortunately the person who should be held accountable for all this mess is no longer at the airline. I think someone mentioned this briefly either here or in the VA thread in passing, what is the ...

Because Queensland politics is always crazy, they’ve launched a bid for VA. It feels like every man and his dog are having a go.

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - April 2020

I would suggest you confirm a source before reporting it blindly. Making “blind” statements without thorough reference or source may be misleading. Yes I agree. We can’t spend the next few weeks/months mindlessly discussing every piece of information. Some sources are much better than others too. A...

Oddly they are still happy to take your money online, surely every there ability to accept new bookings should be on holt?

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - April 2020

Announced a couple minutes ago on ABC24 News that Deloitte have been appointed administrators for VA. This is the second post on here that says it has been confirmed when it has not been. No news source is saying VA has appointed administrators. It is likely yes, but let’s be patient. edit: grammar.
