aviation content: great job done by the guys/girls at EN tower. It was getting quite hectic there aroung the G with aircraft requesting city orbits, mixed with TV choppers, the blimp and aircraft operating in and out of EN. Quite a few bizjets dropping into EN as well including Dick's Citation 525.
Does anyone know how many seats on airlines were sold from having teh AFL and NRL both having out of city finalists. peaple in the terminals tell me that you couldnt get a seat into Melbourne from anywher on the friday.
Virgin flights have been chockers all over the network for the last couple of weeks - friday operated at something like 93% load factor for the day. All week you could not get a flight to melbourne, and I heard stories of people (read: staff travellers) trying to get to melbourne and sydney via gold coast, adelaide and god knows where else... I *heard* that the only seats available SYD-MEL on friday were a couple of QF J class seats @ over $1000 each one way (although I am not presenting that as fact - just what I heard from an F/O who's mum and sister were trying to get from syd back to mel)
Shit yeah! What a game. It was the best I've ever seen especially Judd, Kerr, Cousins, and Hunter. These guys are true champions... Hehehe WA is surely the leader in football. Anyone care to dispute that fact
I know 2 people who got tickets at the last minute to the game and flew via Singapore then on to Melbourne from Perth and came in ALOT cheaper than flying PER-MEL on a J fare which were in excess on $1000.00 which is crazy.
