Because the last thing you want to deal with after a 15+ hour flight is Italian ATC and rome's approach frequencies

Ahh FFS, where would you like to go thatíll keep you happy? Whinge about not flying, or your flying being taken by another entity, then whinge when you get a route back.

Apologies if youíre not actually Qantas

I wonder where all the WA bashers are, who were convinced WAís policies on Covid would make the place so undesirable that itís status as a future airline hub would be unviable?

Also announced today that Darwin is losing the QF 1/2, going back to a Singapore stopover as it was pre-pandemic. It was never going to be a permanent plan.

The future QF route map hinges on the Emperor sticking to the 5 Feb date that has been set. If he reneges and dives head first into the sand again all bets are off

Yes it does.

I do have a bit of quiet confidence heíll stick to it however. Heís had two chances recently to delay the opening beyond Feb 5. He couldíve included 5-11 year olds in the vax target to stretch it out a few months as the AMA WA chief was calling for. But he didnít. He couldíve also used Omicron and the pleas from some hardline epidemiologists to delay the reopening until at least a high percentage of elderly had gotten a booster. But he didnít

Thereís two opportunities to delay reopen that were served to him on a platter that heís failed to take. Especially the one about kids. I personally expected him, when the TGA approved the 5-11 vaccines, for him to announce ďI will stop at NOTHING to keep WAís children SAFE!!! The late Jan/early Feb time is out the window, and there will be NO reopening until ALL WA kids have been vaccinated!!Ē

But no change to the timetable. So although it may change between now and then Iím fairly confident Feb 5 will be it.

I made a promise to myself that when I got back to a full roster that there would be no bitching. Of course I donít have to suffer the inhumane horrors of a night out in Rome.

McGowan literally said in his press conference that the 5 February date is fixed. "Locked-in" was in the press release.

That's not to say that there won't be (and already have been) adjustments to border risk levels and public health measures in the meantime, but calm your farm about the date changing.
