NZ like many others are quick to lay the blame, I heard a presser with JA calling it the NSW variant WTF! NZ needs to remember if they truly want a covid free life style which is very achievable there, stop the import traffic close up indefinitely and manufacture what you can and deal with it.

What's the bet she'd complain about it being called the 'china virus'

Sad

They are wrestling with changing the name “All Whites” so I think you’re up the right PC alley.

The share price now up over 10% off the back of the FDA Pfizer announcement. Tomorrow should be interesting.

A roadmap is great news, it gives us all in the industry hope that soon we may all be doing something we all love again. The impact of the latest advert has everyone thinking again, a smart move ( can’t believe I’m saying that) by Qantas, looking forward to the briefing tomorrow.

Highly Dependent on the Bain consultancy fees.
RDAC is a nice little earner for VA at present.

yep, she is a far leftie and pre covid was a complete disaster and failure. But the old political adage, never let a good crisis go to waste. WuHu flu saved her.

as for the all whites, strange, don’t they have a team called the all blacks. They won’t wrestle with changing that name. Bit racist to pick on the all whites. But hypocrisy is one of the hallmarks of the left. If they didn’t have double standards they would have no standards at all.

Can't do that, she has to call it the November Sierra Whiskey variant says the WHO.

We used to do that - lets get back to the 1960s and do it again

Who knows - we may even be able to bring back RDM.

Whether NSW or more particularly Sydneysiders like it or not , accept it or not

A significant portion of the rest of the nation is pissed off with Gladys & her performance & her arrogance

Taken out Vic & ACT & NZ & nearly QLD & now has the temerity to give free advice to all & sundry

Australia isn't going to resume OS flights any time soon, especially to places like UK / USA - the two developed countries that have handled Covid the worst

AJ & Gladys don't decide border policy, the view of the ordinary bloke in the street is just as important - that is something a lot of the other Premiers understand

It is a nice advert but it you had received a few billion in exclusive Fed Govt handouts it ain't that hard

This isn't the first time QF have put on shrill & excitable performances about "gonna do this , gonna do that" & all amounts to Jack

No doubt the self-congratulations & blowing ones own horn will the feature of the QF presser

The was an article in smh/ the age today about the infection rates of fully vaccinated in California - it wasn't great news

Telfer, you really are a goose sometimes.

How has Gladys “taken out NZ”? Lobbing infected bodies over the city walls? Any NZ cases are a matter for NZ quarantine.

As for infected cases, I look forward to a day when ALL cases that require hospitalization are from those that have been vaccinated.

Possibly to free up the 787’s for longer range flights.

DRW is being looked at as a hub for UK/Europe flights as well.

From the media statement:
The airline is investigating using Darwin as a transit point, which has been Qantas' main entry for repatriation flights, as an alternative (or in addition) to its existing Perth hub given conservative border policies in Western Australia. Discussions on this option are continuing.

Interesting use of words using DRW as an alternative or in conjunction with Perth. Maybe Qantas is concerned about WA keeping its borders closed longer than the rest of Australia. Darwin base… sign me up!!
