I’ll Drink To That

A dude flying from Melbourne to Perth checked in his luggage…one can of Emu Export beer. Unsure if his precious cargo would arrive he was delighted when he made his way to the luggage claim and saw people laughing and taking out their phones.  He later told reporters …“Sure enough there she was, alone on the carousel proudly making her way around. And there I was in my flanno and RMs to greet her. It was perfection.”

Frequent Flyer?

The boss of the flying kangaroo got a flying lemon meringue in the kisser during a Leadership conference in Perth. Alan Joyce, the head of Qantas, didn’t see this coming. The culprit is a religious man who hid for hours to unleash his fury at corporations making comments about marriage equality.    Needless to say he is in the doghouse, especially with his wife who had no idea what he was up to.

PSST: Alan Joyce is openly gay

Come On Honey, We Don’t Do Flannel

Two irate first class  passengers delayed a QANTAS flight from LA to Melbourne because the crew was unable to find them XL-sized first-class pajamas for their flight. Despite being offered  inferior Business Class pj’s the two opted to have their luggage offloaded and catch another flight.

Cracks Beginning To Show In The A380s

No need to panic travellers, but it seems QANTAS have found cracks in the wing ribs of some of their A380 superjumbos. OMG, here is what  QANTAS has to say  “No immediate action is required by A380 operators because the cracking presents no risk whatsoever to flight safety,” Seriously?  Hello, I’m not even allowed to fly if I have a crack in my rib!!!! Singapore Airlines have found similar cracks in their A380s. But don’t you fear  people, the airlines say all cracks have been patched. Reassuring.

Qantas is Back!!!

Qantas is back! Yep, Emu airlines, the fleet that refused to fly due to a squabble with unions has finally found its wings after leaving 22,000 passengers stranded around the world. So who is the winner out of all this, Qantas or the unions? Hmm, who the hell knows, they are all claiming some sort of victory. What I do know is who the losers are.  Firstly, the poor passengers who were used as pawns in this little ongoing battle, Australian tourism and the thousands of Australian Qantas staff who are more than likely going to see their jobs taken over by workers in Asia. There goes the “Spirit of Australia” right down the dunny.  As for  Fair Work Australia and the Unions, you might want to sleep with one eye open from now on because I suspect more big corporates will be following in Qantas’s footsteps. Poor union loving Gillard, now what?
