Excellent. Love the IPA.
Don’t waste your time trying to please the woke folk. It’s impossible, and who cares what they think anyway?

The day RFDS go two-crew will be the day I hand in my resignation.

Excellent idea. However, there are more than enough drones to probably negate any effect.

Well, I’m disappointed that maybe nothing has changed in the last 20 years.

They of course pick up all the costs for running the aircraft, but they...
