Only if the bicycle helmets were lined with aluminium foil.

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.:ok:

same with the ones in mine who wear Lycra. Could be on to something here.

galdian 6th Feb 2021 07:29

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

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

It's a beautiful echo chamber with a river of shit rigbt down the middle of it.

SOPS 7th Feb 2021 12:10

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.

McLimit 7th Feb 2021 13:24

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 shit.

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 shitting 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..............:hmm:

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

Green.Dot 7th Feb 2021 18:38

Brilliant McLimit, very funny and not far off the truth :D

Sunfish 7th Feb 2021 19:32

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.

Green.Dot 7th Feb 2021 20:11

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.

Telfer86 7th Feb 2021 23:04

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

SHVC 7th Feb 2021 23:17

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!

601 7th Feb 2021 23:20

Are both so called "medi hotels"

Why haven't they adopted Qld method of transferring anyone who tests positive in HQ to a isolation ward on a hospital?

Don't the CMOs in each State talk to each other or are they gagged?

Iíd piss off the lot of them..
Canít stand that Tiley guy- heard him sprouting off on the radio a few weeks about his private jet and how he was having trouble getting it cleaned and serviced and stocked with champers for the trip here.
GFY.


Telfer86 7th Feb 2021 23:40

The Leaders of Vic gave a late night press conference on Wednesday after first positive

They were very boastful about their expertise in hotel quarantine etc & then began bragging about "helping & advising" the other states
with hotels & apparent expertise in contact tracing

Talking up some new hypothesis about spread through air - some new mechanism of spread that nobody else seems to know about. All just a
mystery & thus nobody can be responsible - same as findings of last years inquiry

Really don't understand why Fed Govt gave them a second chance after last years massive disaster & the whitewash "inquiry"

The camera loving ones seem to have gone to ground today

only too happy to let you iron out any bugs for us. Cheers for taking one for the team :ok:

Edit-please note tongue in cheek...everyone just chill a bit.

At least they can do a peer reviewed study on the effects of covid vaccine on senility.

wheels_down 8th Feb 2021 09:36

For a start HQ Hotels should not be mixing in with the General Public. Whilst they might be separated by floors, it appears thatís not the issue with this escaping.

Had no idea that was even occurring. I thought it was just logic you isolated these hotels away from the General Public.

Sunfish 8th Feb 2021 10:46

It's really instructive reading comments here. Pilots are indeed unique.

Do you see websites where chippies comment on brain surgery? Plumbers arguing quantum physics?

But commercial pilots on Covid 19 epidemiology? Well that's obviously informed comment.....

Square Bear 8th Feb 2021 10:46

For a fact it was happening in Perth CBD.

Yeah I know what you mean. Facebook has been strangely quiet when it comes to the pandemic. Also, Iíve never seen brain surgeons discuss carpentry on their social chat sites nor physicists discussing leaky taps on theirs. Weird.

Hardly surprising- neither have I.
Shall we take that as an apocryphal statement?How many surgeon and physicist chat sites do you actually read as a matter of interest??!!

Well you’re not a professional pilot? WTF are you doing on here then?

Sunfish pretends he knows how to run an airline and is an IR expert, apparently. Ohh and he was quite shit at building a home build once. At least thatís what he sounds like, with all his worries about CASA and his home build.

Facebook / Reddit are full of people from all walks of life / vocations discussing the same things you read here. This site is in no way unique.

Whether the discussion is informed / educated etc is a different argument.

Morno


The biggest fool can say the Sun is shining but that doesn't make it dark outside.
Yes, I know very little about aviation having only worked for one airline and one defence/aerospace company apart from I.T, Government and the commercialization industry including sitting on the Board of a medical start up.

I received a private briefing from two key Covid investigators from the Peter Doherty Institute in March last year, the contents of which I shared on Pprune at the time which proved substantially correct.

The response I received then from one or two of your colleagues was exactly the same as yours.

If you continue to reject advice out of hand, no matter, or rather because of, the source, then you and your industry deserve your fate.

I still get tidbits, but I rarely share them.



SHVC 9th Feb 2021 04:39

HQ again in ML, women testing positive on day 16 this afternoon 2 days after leaving HQ same scenario as NSW on Sunday.

Have all the virologist got it wrong from the beginning and the incubation period is longer than 14 days or they’re getting infected whilst in HQ due to failures in the system not addressed yet!

jrfsp 9th Feb 2021 04:44

Indeed....seems more and more likely that airbourne transmission is happening inside the HQ system....

How many times does the system need to leak before its replaced.....Howard Springs type set up is the way to go....Outdoor, individual cabin set up.

RVDT 9th Feb 2021 04:46

Unzud has had 2 cases similar - UK variant?
