The focus now needs to be on building an effective public health system. The current system cannot handle the 'normal' amount of demand plus the number of Covid patients, even when vaccination rates have reached 80% or 90% or even 100%.

So only now the government should focus on building an effective health system? What about the last 18 months? I guess they have been too busy coming up with ways to scare the crap out of the general population.

Australia is a lucky country run mainly by second rate people who share its luck. It lives on other people's ideas, and, although its ordinary people are adaptable, most of its leaders (in all fields) so lack curiosity about the events that surround them that they are often taken by surprise.

Better late than never, but methinks disastrously late. The public health system in Australia cannot run without migrants. Immigration is a bit 'light on' at the moment.

As slice quoted: "Australia is a lucky country run mainly by second rate people who share its luck."

Sorta like the carpark at the local supermarket undergoing its fourth major construction overhaul in six years. I just look at it and say "WHY" how about getting it right the first time.

Too busy shifting insane amounts of money to mates.

If the attitude and resources that are currently available from those at various ports are extended to the “new” opening, let’s just hope for all of us.
The mantra of “it’s not my fault, problem.” Has become endemic in the organisation. Sacking the knowledge at the coal face and having no insight to the effects will be nothing short of a mega cluster when ops attempt to return to some form of normal.
the company has been insulated to a degree because of the limited flying program.

It's unlikely at this stage you'll be coming to NZ

The feds had better think about changing the rules around home isolation or there will be cancelled services all over the place. The iso rules need to change for this to be viable. How does someone who lives in the regional areas do ‘home isolation’? How do they get home if they need to hop on another flight from the domestic terminal? What about crew how have healthcare workers at home? Rules changing around this? They’ll need to!

Iíd say this is just a precursor to a negative test on arrival requirement only. I agree, canít see the home quarantine thing working or lasting long.

Does this mean NSW and Vic crew will be allowed out of their hotel rooms while on a trip now? If the passengers you’re transporting are free to do as they wish overseas, then surely crew can as well?

I assume they could with the same testing requirements. For example Singapore require arriving visitors to get tested on arrival and remain in hotel until a negative result is received as well as follow up testing on days 3 and 6. As I understand it, all of these have to be paid for and total cost is around SGD400. For crew, they'd only need the on-arrival test but it may be that by time they receive clearance to move around, they are already on the bus back to the airport for the return trip.

I don't think it is that desperate. There is a whole fleet of A380s sitting in the desert that can be used first.

While WA & NT lag behind the rest of Straya there will be no LHR directs, only way would be Project Sunrise.

I however expect to see the good ole 380 via SIN fire up well before that of course!

All in all great news, now itís up to the states to not fook it up!
