Absolutely, soon someone will suggest bike helmets can prevent virus infection.
I did not want to raise this but, none of the group I ride with, who all wear helmets, have caught the virus.

Maybe lycra suits with bicycle helmets/caps should be the new QF uniform, the virus wouldn't stand a chance!

Mind you the aesthetics on some of the flight crew would be....interesting the word??

there are already a few who wear sizes a few too small. The buttons are just begging to be let free.

the uniform you suggest would however be an improvement on the current one

So we now have leaks from HQ in NSW and Vic. Letís see where this goes.

HQ and returning travellers are the big weak point.

I think we all know where it's going:

- Andrews would normally shut the state down, but now that he has an international tennis event, miraculously, he now has full confidence in the contact tracing. We will hear very little of the expert medical advice. Because, well they will have nothing to do with the 'decision' to not lock down.

- NSW will remain open, not lock any States out and deal with the case pragmatically.

- WA will lock both NSW & VIC out of WA.

- QLD will lock NSW out but not VIC, petty vendetta against NSW but will want to prove to Morrison that she's not being reactionary (remaining open to VIC) in an effort to secure financial support.

- SA will lock both NSW & VIC out. But no one really gives a ****.

Australians will rejoice in the nationally consistent approach to covid cases.

Victorians - will go about the business, looking suspiciously at anyone within 1.5m. Out of sight and at home they'll be ****ting themselves, shaking uncontrollably at the thought of another lockdown. Sunfish will dig out his Harvard MBA notes, his Mayo Clinic medical notes and his vaccination card from the Spanish (American) Flu, Andrews has him on speed dial so we will have to wait for a pprune response from him. As an aside, Sunfish is not Andrews expert medical advisor, Sunfish would have locked down indefinitely sometime last April.

NSWelshmen - couldn't really be ******, they know the government can be trusted (well, that word may be a little strong) to not behave like a pack of morons, locking down at 2 mins notice, well not locking down at all.

QLD'rs - Will ring 4BC en-mass (Jonesy will be frothing at the mouth wondering how they got through the switchboard) and thank Annie for keeping them safe whilst most of their family plot on excel spreadsheets when it will all end for them. Being heavily reliant on tourism, locking tourists out repeatedly and at short notice tends to have an effect on your bottom line.

South Australians - well..............

West Australians - They'll hear something on triple m about some virus over east whilst dropping off their Malloo at the Holden dealer for a sub woofer upgrade. They can spot an easterner accent at 200m, that's what keeps them safe, they know their fellow WA comrades are safe so are quite happy to have them within 400mm of their person

Yes McLimit, very funny and I'm now in vaccination group 1b. I guess you have to wait until 2022 with the rest of the Fifteen year olds.

You can scream and yell all you like about the unfairness of it all but RPT air travel is dead and its going to remain that way.

Once you get your vaccine Sunfish why donít you enjoy your retirement instead of p*ssing it away on PPRUNE. We 15 years olds donít have anything better to do until we get access to the vaccine.

I think we can file that one along with your recent claim that Ďsix months ago Victoria was cactus, now itís NSW and Qldís turní.

it must be exhausting to live in a constant state of near-hysterical paranoia.

The biggest threat the Australian Pilot cohort have is the Victorian Socialist Left Govt getting back into the hotel quarantine game

Two cases last four days , from two different hotels

One announced very late last night

Just put the airline recovery back by another three months & possibly much longer

International sports people must be more valued than Australian residents lively hoods. Australian open has been nothing but drama, and do Australians really want it here at the moment!
