G demo had the saabs from sydney fly north to the CG airspace and descend then track back south into the Northern Rives MBZ to avoid the last rediculous airspace review. I wonder if similar will occur. Imagine a QFA 767 maintaining F190 till 45 nm north of sydney to avoid E and then being frowned on for not making the STAR requirements.

I find it disturbing that when the VFR climb descent , PU an VT are forced upon all E airspace users if someone else decides to use them. The reply is usually ' well by using E you agree to these procedures'. I would think that if Qantas and Virgin did not agree, they should be quite within their rights to maintain levels above the airspace until they reach the IFR protection that they PAY for.
