Much better PR/advertising than the advert going around at the moment!

The ABC reported on this mornings 0745 news that there was a betting plunge on Lauren Jackson carrying the flag in the days before it was announced. They also mentioned that the way Ms Jackson's parents found out was from "a Qantas pilot" and they had been quite surprised by this. Now the subject of an investigation by the relevant authorities...

See. It only takes about 7 posts on a Qantas subject, even a good news subject, and then it goes pear shaped.
Shame on anyone who feels they need to bet on who carries the national flag and shame on anyone who makes a market for it. Get back to the greyhounds, you wallies.

As Keg said, the PA was a nice touch and very typical of what made Qantas feel Australian.. over the years, I have heard PAs similar to this, major cricket updates etc which always made the "Aussies on board" feel at home instantly and always appeared to be greatly appreciated... something that should never be lost..

Onya CPT Woods..

A great effort for a good reason.

When Lauren Jackson was interviewed in London after the official announcement, she said her parents didn't yet know as they were on their way over at that time but, "QANTAS have arranged to tell them during the flight" - Why any need for an investigation?

In what way? The crew would have received an ACARS or perhaps a Satcom call advising them of the announcement and the fact her parents were on board. Someone (pax or crew) would have recorded the PA (it seems there is always has a phone handy these days!) and passed it onto the media.

Nice to have something positive about QF in the news.

That doesn't show it's real. I'm not denying that the recording exists or that the recording was made available by Qantas.

I'm saying it doesn't sound like a recording of an actual PA made on an actual aircraft that was actually in revenue service. It certainly is not recorded by someone who "had a phone handy". There is no background noise, no whirring engines, no reaction from the passengers. To me it sounds like something that was recorded in a studio and had a filter put on it to make it sound vaguely like a PA.

Hahaha!

As a previous poster was alluding to, if you knew who Ian Woods is, you'd know it wasn't a publicity stunt or a set-up.
