I agree with you, stick to Tahiti and go to Bora Bora if budget allows .... maybe it will be cheaper now. Maldives has a dismal human rights record, sufficiently bad to warrant boycotting if you...

Rules have not changed yet, it is 14 days quarantine (if you are symptomatic on arrival) or 14 days in managed isolation facility (I think this means a hotel). No credit for days spent in other...

Resorts in Bali are giving 90%+ discounts if renting by the month. But 60% is pretty good for NZ. Can you still partake in outdoor tourism, or are walks in the park banned?

For most airlines it is the computer looking and not the agent looking ... the checkin rules are enforced in software and wont print the baggage tag without an over-ride. Alternative is for agent to...

QF bought slots at LHR for a record price for starting SYD-HKG-LHR service, and had to use these slots or lose them, thus wet leased these BAE 146-200s from Flightline in UK. They were white tailed...

Some chance by November but I would guess not earlier, so you'd be amongst the first tourists ... could make for a great trip. My own opinion is that unlikely before 2021 based on the current world...

QF hasn't been selling J on domestic services as the service level is reduced (no lounges, no meals, no drinks). Maybe the same now for international flights?

I wouldn't be surprised that MH LHR-KUL flights would be selling out for July travel. I think you are mis-judging the demand ex-LHR given the few airlines currently operating to Asia. Of course the...

Currently announced flight cancellations are until end of May 2020. Historically QF announces about a week before, so I would not expect your flights to be cancelled prior to May 15 -- so another...

QF has always had crack IT systems, which were a bit out of control most of the time. Fewer staff at the helm to correct their idiosyncracies, it seems.

There are no MEL-AKL flights operating presently so you'd have a MEL-SYD-AKL routing. 65 hour transit in SYD sounds like high risk for getting stranded. Fwiw, QR is selling DOH-SYD-AKL tickets with...
