"Joining us from ABC News. Watching the airports is watching the roads. He's watching the train tracks. Here's one thing with the T s a Is there like new technology out there that they're using? So passengers can have less contact with officers? Yeah, so a couple of things that they're doing one is that they are you know how many times you've got to the airport, and the line is a mile long, and they've got one lane open. Come on. Well, they're trying to open up all the lanes so that you don't have people bunching together. And so the African taken socially distance now hi tech wise, and they're going back to the administrator, David, because key he's Says, Yeah, they're trying all kinds of different things now and one of them being that when you go up and you hand them your ID that you don't actually have to do that to a human when you come up and you present your driver's license or your passport to the officer in many airports now that's more of an automated process. Where rather than handing off your driver's license or your passport. You just inserted into a machine yourself, and then you take it out yourself when that process is done, eh? So that's our effort to reduce contact. So that way you don't have to these days through a hole in the plexiglass handing your idea and they look at you and you know, you kind of go back and forth. They tell you take down your mask, and then they hand it back to you on then the other thing they're trying to do, and this will take a while. But Putting in new X ray machines where last these three d X ray machines less has to be taken out. She's gonna people touching all the bends and, you know, pulling their stuff out and doing all that were more like pre check. You can leave everything in and then you don't have that interaction.

Yes, Some are now United is doing it on some new work toe London flights more to make everybody feel better, Dad to get them going again. All the airlines are doing it if you're going The Hawaii because Hawaii mandates it. British Airways is going to begin doing it. The thing we also asked T s a. What about when there is a vaccine? Will the T s a require that if you're going to fly, you have to get it. And here's what he said. No, we don't require proof of a vaccine. Nor do we contemplated at this point in time, but we will always consider Things of that nature as we proceed, and that's been one of the lessons of covert 19 response and recovery. A Z. We've gotten smarter, collectively as a country through great medical advice. Great science. We've changed our procedures and the reason why we asked him that is, Qantas says that it is going to require that the wind there is a vaccine Quanis in Australia that if you want to fly them, you're gonna have to say Here's my my proof of vaccine. That might not be a bad idea, Alex how much you're an anti vaccine, and then it's a they're not gonna like. Well, then you can't go toe. Why you're playing for Australia.

"Demand but the show airs live streaming on. Over thirty million television households in America. Archives. TV Dot Com and we have now archived at s Abrahams. Dot Net. So go look for the TV show archive there and you'll find twenty-three soon to be twenty four episodes plus my blog switch are hilarious. You've got to watch those. So all all of which by the way were produced the blogs video logs were produced while we were in Northern Ireland. And during our corona voyage when we were marooned for five months in Ireland, unable to get home, and if you're GONNA be stuck someplace, I highly recommend Ireland and Northern Ireland. The whole island that is Ireland is a place to get stuck. Fabulous. Loved every minute of it can't wait to go back. So I'm going to take you off to visit with my very good friend who was always stepped up the plate. Even, his wife is stepped up to the plate when I had a problem and called his house. And once, Walker, very early in the morning because I was in France and she was in New York where it was much earlier. Go off a Douglas John lampl right after this.

And we are broadcasting. From home. Certainly. We broadcast the role of the world. So broadcasting from home is not such a big deal, but it's very different from being in the studio. I am if you're if you've been listener for sometime. In Ireland I was in the kitchen. And that was. That was my broadcast studio and my husband was in the dining room doing the production. So he was a control room now he's in. The area beside our morning room place, we like to have breakfast in our house and I'm in our bedroom and there's a spider on the ceiling. So if I scream at any time, if it decides to make a web around the you'll know. They tell me they eat mosquitoes so. I don't want to kill it i. just wanted to be somewhere else on the line with me. In my spider trauma. Is John lampl. Now retired but I'm going to guess as busy as he's always been in his life, I can't imagine him retired an idol. But the John If you're just joining us now worked at British Airways for over forty one years and When I met John, he was the head of PR and Communications for. British, Airways and a pointed me in all the rights erections to learn. So many things I never would know about were it not for him. So thank you so much for joining us today John. How are you doing? I'm very well I'm here in Miami enjoying. South Florida and enjoying retirement but you know. I always said I retired from British Airways, but from nothing else. And I've kept my sort of networking apparatus going with with all my travel writing and broadcasting friends such as yourself. And we just keep going and my wife and I keep traveling as best we can. We're in a little bit of a golden right now because of the pandemic but as soonest the virus is contained, there's a proper vaccination for everybody will be we'll be on the road or on the ship on the train or in the airplanes as soon as possible. Now. You actually had a little interface with this covert business. No. I did indeed, I somehow contracting the virus on a quick trip to New York and very early March and when I return to. Miami a few days later was feeling very well went to the hospital. They told me I had pneumonia. So bound up that I was hospitalized for five weeks. And two and a half weeks of that period. I was intimated I was in an induced coma. But I came out of it. Okay and I feel great blank tennis and back back to the old self. So just looking forward to being. Being, able to get on a plane and traveling to favorite spots around the world. Are there any. Words of wisdom you'd like to share with my audience to a help them stay healthy and avoid this ghastly illness and be. Anything else you think we ought to know related to it. I think the the the obvious is the social distancing. As, well, as whenever you go outside your home or your apartment house or your condominium, you was you must wear a mask it's I've seen it in I've just from news reports that how many people you know states? And other countries don't do it and. I'm very weary of the whole thing I certainly. AM hopeful that they can contain this as soon as possible. I personally don't want to get. reinfected again. So I'm very. Careful and where we go and what we do. We don't here in south Florida they do not allow any in. In House dining yet that may change in the next couple of weeks it depends on the local government authority. But at at the present time we we've gone to a couple restaurants but outdoors where they placed the tables. At least six feet or two meters apart. And it's worked very well. I just hope that sooner rather than later the whole thing can be. Ended in a proper medication vaccine. Can Be Given to everybody. Yeah we can only hope and pray but I have to tell you about. I'M GONNA SAY Mid July. Maybe a little bit before mid-july Some town around the Fort Lauderdale area opened up and a very good childhood friend of mine sent me a photograph. Naturally, it was a link to a video. Of the mayor of their town in a restaurant and he he was in a restaurant. And nobody was wearing masks thad mass round their necks and they were in some restaurant because everything is just reopened but I think it's reclosed.

737 MAX update: The MAX gets its first order of 2020

"Brought down. This is our 737. Max. Update for this particular episode Canada in its I want to concurrent quest to recertified aircraft transport Canada will be taking the seventh time Amax on a test flight of their own. So the FAA formerly would. Do Certification, and then let Canada Yeah. It's fine. The planes good to go. We'll. We've certified it in Canada would say okay, that's good enough for us. This time around Canada wants to fly themselves so that supposed to happen this week. So by the time, the podcast comes out on Friday that will likely have already occurred, but you can you can search shop. We don't know for sure but it will likely be the seven three, seven, Max Seven. Test Craft seven two, zero, one S. so we'll put link in the show notes to that flight if it does happen by the time. The podcast comes out to. The Max also got its first order of twenty twenty. Spend all times. It's the last order was. The British Airways Order Alley. Ear Show Way Back? Yes. So the first symptoms of Max Order Twenty twenty goes to enter air and we're not talking about a large number it's two plus options for two right. So not a huge vote of confidence but vote of confidence nonetheless. Interesting to say the least I would not. If I were a smaller line like enter, I would not be signing agreements to purchase new aircraft when you probably have. Vast choice of. Used grounded aircraft globally right now but hey, maybe they got a good deal. One would assume that the delay got was. Better than good. I hope. So I don't know what airline right now is a in the position to purchase new aircraft and be. Sees the need to. When you're just talking about two and potentially four. It was very very unclear to me why they would be purchasing the aircraft at this point. Maybe, there was some type of financing to be had or something like that. Bigger deal. Boeing has a large number of maxis sitting on the ground for customers that don't exist anymore, and for customers that don't want anymore to top I guess would be Jet Airways. So those aircraft have gotta go somewhere at some point. So Boeing probably just cut them a very substantially good deal. Yeah. Yeah exactly. One of the interesting things about this order was the nomenclature the Boeing uses to describe. The purchase. And there was a a bit made about this. You know when the when the press release came out announcing this order they refer to the aircraft. Now is the seven, three, seven, Dash Eight. Only in the headline, right which was. Interesting because they use Max everywhere else. They used it five times otherwise throughout out the press release both Boeing and enter air interchangeably. So it wasn't just one or the other the only place left out was the headline. So I, disagree with anyone saying that they have dropped the Max branding. Oh. Isn't the case yet? No I they I certainly haven't dropped the. Max Branding but I thought it was interesting that it was included in the headline and not just noted in the in the piece. I wish we could kind of settle this once and for all and uncertainly you would hire not going to be able to but I'm just I thought we had all gone and said you know this is just This is still the Max moving on and but maybe that's not the case if they're gonNA rename it. I wish they would do it sooner rather than later because we've got a lot of database entries to make up if that's the case. So it it would have been so much easier from the beginning we had just all decided to call it the seven, three, seven, Dash, eight, seven, three, seven, Dash, nine in the Max could have been some sort of branding. Exercise I don't think they'll do it I don't think they'll change. That would be admitting defeat admitting that the aircraft is so broken that you have to rename it and all of their rhetoric and press materials so far has been this is a great aircraft in will be a great aircraft. So why change the name? If you think that yeah, I, I agree with you I agree I don't think they'll D at. The end of discussion. No but I don't think they'll change but I'm saying you know if airlines push to change it will what do you do that I mean when you've got, you've got a group of. It's not Max to us. It's the you know the seven, three, seven, Dash Eight, and remember we we already saw this happen feels like an eternity go but several months ago, Ryan, one of Ryanair's newest seventy Max's came out of the factory was painted not with seven, three, seven, Max Eight, seven, seven, three, seven, Dash Eight, whatever the variant of their super high capacity Yeah, right. But it did not say Max on the nose. Setting aside I think it's still kind of bonkers. They'RE GONNA fit two hundred people. On on seven, three seven but that's It's almost like it's not natural in shouldn't happen.

Boeing 747s still get critical updates via floppy disks

"Apparently, the Boeing seven seven still uses floppy disks. This finding comes from a video tour of a British Airways seven, forty, seven by cybersecurity firm pen test partners that was displayed at the hackers conference. DEFCON British Airways recently retired it's seven, forty, seven fleet, which is how the firm was able to get this kind of usually exclusive access. The biggest takeaway from the tour for many however was the three and a half inch floppy drive. As a reminder for the young or forgetful eight three and a half inch floppy disk can only hold about one point, forty four megabytes that's less than one MP three of an average length song. Quoting his moto apparently, the drive is the seven forty sevens novelization database later and needs to be updated every twenty eight days as in some poor engineer has to visit seven, forty, seven, four, hundred and manually deliver updates or the planes wouldn't be able to fly, and it's not just the seven forty sevens per the verge. The majority of Boeing seven thirty sevens are also updated via floppy disks operators of these planes according to a two thousand fourteen aviation today report have binders full of floppy disks for all the avionics that they may need. That includes important information like airport's runways flightpaths and way points used by pilots to make flight plans. It also sounds horribly inefficient as while some systems may only require one floppy disk updates. Others could require as many as eight floppy discs end quote. Now the seven forty seven did debut in nineteen, eighty eight. So being designed originally with a floppy disk drive makes perfect sense, but it is surprising they've never added. Although. It turns out that a number of industries still use floppy disks or have only recently started to phase them out according to digital trends machines like once used for embroidery, some medical equipment, ATM's and. Aviation hardware all frequently still rely on floppy disks because the machinery was built to last for decades and is extremely expensive to replace. In fact, until just last year, the US Department of Defense was using eight inch floppy disks for the nuclear weapons. System.

Long live the Queen: We say goodbye to a big chunk of the passenger 747 fleet

"In the last episode Jason said. Go What did I say you said that you could still fly on a British Airways seven, four seven at the time that I said it that was a true statement. And it was a true statement for all of seventy two hours. Then British Airways said, no, you can't. No, you can't they're gone. They're gone effective immediately and we will never fly again. We don't even know if they're going to get any sort of official sendoff for celebration or anything do the at calm rumors necessarily but kind of scuttle. But around the water cooler such as it is says that they are not inclined to participate in any sort of send off because of the current climate they find themselves in. Well. That is just extremely on physician by I think more. So than any other airliner, even really any other aircraft and I know people are going to argue in bicker about this. And L. means emails. Two four DOT com. When I, think of British Airways I think of the seven four, seven I think of the seven four, seven, I think of British Airways the two are intrinsically linked. To imagine a British Airways were about seven, four seven is really difficult for me. Yeah. It's. It's of those things that You know there was a couple. Are a couple lines that you immediately associate the seven, four seven with an obviously the the first and foremost him just because of the history there. But then when when you kind of think of like the top three or four airlines, I, immediately think British Airways KLM. And the. KLM has already retired or I think mostly retired. So they have to serving in in cargo capacity to combat serving cargo Carl only capacity. But but yeah, they're not flying passengers and yeah and KLM only had a few towards the later days but British Airways a significant chunk of its widebody fleet was still seven four. Yeah I mean they were operating a fleet of thirty. So I mean that's not we're down to two tons of with twenty eight young. British Airways we see to retire its entire seven, four, seven fleet by either twenty, twenty, three, twenty, four, twenty, four. So the writing the wall but the wall we've got a whole lot closer right the the wall basically fell. Fell on top of the fleet but there are still some four sevens out there. There are still chances may be two to fly them. Should you want to go out and do that? Obviously, your best chance is going to be Lufthansa at some point, they haven't announced anything about retiring. There's they're putting them into two storage. Planning bring them back So twenty, their Korean Airlines has twelve China Airlines has four Air China has eight, and then you kind of start to whittle things down I. I would say that the under a Russia has nine, but I would say that there's a good chance that may be Thai Airways with eight is probably not bringing there's back or if they do, it won't be for long. But I could be wrong. Indy only has four in. It'll be interesting to see what they ended up doing with there's and then there's a few charter airlines like wellness has five and Atlas Air has four. So you can't really book a ticket on those but you know you've got stand up on you. You've got a decent chance of flying on those if you book a ticket on other airlines. So thankfully at least for my New York City centric mind, we have three airlines that to be the three airlines operate the seven, four, seven, Dash Eight. Tonnes a Korean Air, China all at some point operated the the dash eight two K. typically in the summer. So I hope we see them again. But honestly, there is a a likely reality in which JFK does not see a seven, four, seven in regular passenger service. Again, I don't think it's out of the question that that's a possibility and that makes me very, very sad. Yeah. I. Mean I. I was thinking about this the other day when we were putting kind of listing who who, still flying him and things like that and and I was supposed to do a trip hin in April. Originally, we were going to do something really cool and one of the things that I was really looking forward to flying the Lufthansa's dash eight but did not get that chance but maybe next year year after it'll still be there and still be a possibility. But yeah, I. Mean the fleet was just such you know. That that livery. Deliveries on the for seven just looked so good and then when they did the the heritage liveries games, they just looked so

"Which is British Airways that down seven percent we've got run it down ten percent easyjet down eleven percent both budget airlines here in the U. K. Lufthansa is down six percent to six percent I'm a new intercontinental hotels or IHG Holiday Inn down six and a half percent so it is the usual suspects along with obviously the basic resource sector has concerns about impacts to supply chains in global Damone hello prices and commodity prices in general so it's a pretty broad based selloff and I think there's potential for an awful lot more to go and actually I'm surprised it's taken so long for investors to wake up to the risks this coronavirus could bring to the global economy because let's face it it's not really new phenomenon we've been talking about it for the last month or so so what explains the violent reaction we're seeing this morning given that corona virus has been something that the markets have been watching since it broke out in Wuhan more than a month ago it's quite simple really nice it is because it's spread beyond a user ID some broken and it's a it's a lease and its lease in a lock down in the in a lot of Sentinel initially airing in quarantine a northern Italy is really the economic engine of the Italian economy and let's not forget in queue for the Italian economy contracted so if you go north initially and not down that's bad news not only for its like please also bad news for Europe and the European economy in general because it's gonna be very very difficult for European countries to limit movements of people throughout the continent when you have free movement of people as part of the single market so the big question is can they contain this outbreak all the corona virus I think Cohn how far across Europe is going to spread you know there had been talk even before the corona virus reached Europe that there was going to be a need for fiscal stimulus in the eurozone on due to the possibility of further global economic slowdown over and above what's happening now does that put more pressure on governments to to do something about this with corona virus now their doorstep it will put more pressure on them but I'm not sure how any Sony fiscal stimulus will help also million for law all of the economic recovery that we've seen over the course of the past twelve to eighteen months has been very consumer if you have a pandemic the first thing you do is you locked down the movement of people and you put them in quarantine in that pre that prevents them from going out and spending money it goes that prevents them from going on being productive so ultimately I think for many of fiscal stimulus isn't likely to help in the short to medium term in the long term it might have an economic benefit but it's certainly not going to help stock valuations in the short term not only I think what investors are going to have to get used to is the fact that we're going to get an awful lot more profit warnings over the course of the next few weeks and months as economic activity across Europe gets hit quite substantially I mean we'd call anecdotal reports already the falcons team is holding back and I'm gonna give you a good example here and here and here in the U. K. based a village in Oxford is a very funny return destination for Chinese tourists ninety percent drop in full full over the course of the last two three months simply because when I have a Chinese New Year Chinese people tend to travel they haven't been doing that so they're not going out they're not shopping and as a result you sing returns getting hit as well that we are obviously seeing the equity market hit this morning certainly Michael Hewson chief market analyst at CMC markets with us from London this morning thanks so much for your insights Karen thank you it is five.

"The ridesharing service Uber has announced that it is now trialing. It's new awards loyalty program in Australia. The program is now being tried but it will be rolled out in full early next year. And at the same time quantities. Making some changes to call disappoints join South and with Yuba and there is some positive and negative changes. Here you'll saint-pierre would earn corners points for all Uber Rides as well as ubereats orders which is good news because at the moment you can currently only earn Qantas points on rides between Eligible USTRALIAN airports But there is also some bad news because the number of points that silver gold platinum and platinum one members of the Qantas Frequent Flyer program will on Uber Rides to a from. The airport is being reduced and these changes coming into effect from the thirteenth of December Bets nonetheless the Super Rewards Program is quite an interesting development. The with Uber Rewards. You'll have the option of converting your Uber Woods points to Qantas Frequent Flyer points which is good knees and they'll also be some other ways to redeem your Uber Awards planes and you can own points no ride so it's quite interesting although the value is somewhat questionable so the Uber Awards program you'll end points every dulles paint on On bridezilla one point Padilla on Uber Pool and Uber eats two points. But duller on Ebay X. Eubanks Eubanks L. Yuba confident assist or three points Padilla's paint on premium. Rides off two seven off seven hundred fifty uber. Points points you'll have the option then to redeem those points for a range of different rewards And seven hundred and fifty Uber Woods. Planes is going to be worth two hundred Qantas points so that means basically the any equivalent of About Hoffa quotas point Padilla spent on uber x rides and on Uber AIDS odors. You'll be earning winning bouts point two seven corners points Padilla spent now if you want to convert your uber rewards points to quotas points. There's another catches well. The benefit will only be available to gold platinum and diamond members of the EIB reward scheme. That's right the reward is going to have status levels. I don't think priority boarding will be one of the benefits to achieve gold status. You would need to end at least one thousand. Two Hundred Uber Rewards points. And that's when you can start to transfigure points over to Qantas And once the status tier is owned with the program. You get to keep it for six months unless he earned enough points to requalify during those following six months There are some benefits of the status. Tears like Thomson discounts and indeed upgrades and things like that but on the whole it's probably not going to be a huge development and less You're uber you're already using Uber. Quite regularly regularly anyway but with the new seem. I don't think it's really GONNA be worth getting out of your way to use for the Qantas points especially when you can already own a flat. One one velocity point. Padova spent which increases to to velocity points Padilla's paint on rides to the airport When you gazing Ola? It's interesting to see how the ride sharing industry is taken taken off around the world and ridesharing nowadays has become a welcome in quite used alternative to taxis much to S- gust of coast of the taxi industry But the ridesharing apps it convenient and the rating systems that they keep both the drivers and passengers only at target and urban nowadays is operating in almost every country entry there of course many also competing ridesharing services that have emerged in Australia. We now have Ola. which partners with philosophy frequent flyer and there's also so now? DD in the US. Lift in Asia. Grab there's also boat which used to be tax fi which mainly operates in Europe North America Africa and the Middle East and there's a whole bunch of ride sharing services that have also now managed which are exclusively for women and I only have female drivers to another interesting nation. Interestingly Interestingly Uber has never actually made a profit last quarter it lost in fact five billion. US dollars that said Uber keeps telling investors that the core business is in fact profitable on that the company would stop losing money if it stopped trying to grow aggressively has run into some legal problems. The company recently lost its licensed operating prayed in London for example which is not the first time this has happened but is appealing the decision by transport for London and while it is appealing the decision is still allowed to continue operating Gary figure. The issues in London relate to uber failing to prevent unauthorized drivers from picking up passengers including some drivers who were previously suspended by Uber but simply created a new account something that was way too easy to do and also some drivers who will unlicensed and uninsured Uber has also been forced out of several other European cities either Judah protests from Likud taxi drivers or because he was unwilling to meet the demands of local authorities authorities which was the case in Denmark for example. Personally my uber experiences of mostly vein positive. And it's now definitely my preferred option. Iva Taxis is I've had Suddenly overseas anyway. My Fish Air taxi drivers that have tried to rip me off by not using the Mito in the long way or you know and so on with Uber and with the eappen the GPS tracking that is used. It's quite difficult to do. This but still is not foolproof. Last last week I was in India where oehler is actually much bigger than UBA and I needed to get from my her telling Jaipur to the airport. I tried easing Ola but after accepting the job. My driver then drove away from the hotel for five minutes. I'm in seemed to have no intention of actually picking up so I canceled and an open up the TAB now. My Uber driver tied up in a few minutes. But for some reason the APP wasn't leading him. Stop the ride. He was trying to Type it stop tripping but in bed. He kept getting an error message in the APP. Wouldn't let him do it and I'm not sure exactly what the problem was. Because his his was in Hindi but we try troubleshooting for a few he minutes. We tried lots of different things but it just no matter what we did it would not let him start the ride so I eventually had to cancel the trip but I still. I need to get to the airport so I offered the driver the equivalent of the uber price in cash. If he would just drive me to the airport and he agreed Perhaps that was a bit naive. gave me but anyway a bit of a strange to the troop. But that's not even the strangest part about two thirds of the way to the airport. This driver of mine ran a red light and got pulled over by the police. The policeman asked to see this guy's license and it turns out that he didn't even have won the heat. Trevor in the policemen then it had a very very lively discussion in Hindi. which unfortunately I couldn't have the stand that lasted about five minutes? The driver seem to be begging the policemen to let him often often at the end of the conversation Dr Asleep some rupees to the policemen and we were free to guy. I eventually made it to the airport. Goodness me I'd hate to think what would have happening. They'd be in an accident in because I'm pretty sure this guy wasn't insured on either but anyway I did make it thankfully Most of my experiences with both Uber Barron Allah willing India and diver else have been quite good but that was really quite desiring consenting anyway. What's your experience with tain like? Are you a fan of ride sharing services so deeper for taxis and do you think you'll use the new uber rewards program. Let me know your thoughts in the discussion. Discussion trade this for nine. I've got a question from fish member with the handle Mr isolated and this person asked. Hi Matt thanks for answering my question on a previous podcast. I have another firstly awoken my partner in I Hoping Ping to head over to Winnipeg Canada from Perth. We have enough Qantas points to fly business class probably to San Francisco Chicago late next year. My predicament is their return. Flights booked as a one way are about the same price as round trip flights. We could fly back for ten in economy easing points. But that's no refunds they. Do you have any suggestions on how to get a decent one way if the return trip. Well let's quite common problem because yeah one way. International if says are often just as expensive if not more expensive than return tickets and the reason for this is that the The discounted return tickets usually have certain requirements such as minimum mom own maximum stays and when you're booking one-way ticket The doesn't actually know how long you will stain or even that you're going to be flying back on the same line so they they exclude those cheaper fares that have the ferals from being available now. The via solution here is just to a US points to comeback even if it means flying economy on the way home or if it means maybe buying some more points There is there airlines. That will so points and with Qantas you can by Topa points or even purchase wine from Qantas wines. That have some very generous amounts of bonus points tach and that can actually work out bomb cheaper than purchasing. I just saw the Topa points outright but I realized that that's not necessarily a viable option so there are two other ways to make this work now. If you think you're going to be going back to Canada within a year of your upcoming trip you could purchase a return ticket from Winnipeg to Perth and then used. I used the return leg of that ticket as the start of another trip in the future and by the time you take that second trip you hopefully you'll have saved up enough points to be able to book the One way flights back home from that second trip business class. If you don't WanNa do that another option would be to use low cost airlines because low cost airlines. Don't charge charged that premium for flying one way and your case coming from North America Australia. The logical option would be to find your way to Honolulu on a cheap ticket maybe with Westjet for example and then from Honolulu we can pick up jetstar flight to USTRALIA economy tickets yet stuff from Honolulu to his trailer. Sometimes as low as two. Who will three hundred dollars one way or you could even go business class? which on Jetstar is really just premium economy? But it's quite a reasonable price on that route even as a one waking. Yeah yes I do realize it's Jetstar and yes. jetzt is not that great tire a home but it's a reasonably easy daytime flight from Hawaii Hawaii to Australia that leaves in the morning. So it's not too bad You have to obviously purchase more than one ticket here Get One ticket to get to Honolulu another ticket from Honolulu to Australia. So I would recommend in this case breaking up the trip with at least one night in Hawaii you just in case there's any delays to your inbound flights from Canada but hey there are definitely was places to spend a bit of time then Hawaii this phone. I've also received questioned by email from the member. Rubik's who says Heim at first of all. Thanks for your articles and I F- plenty of great stuff in there that I always thank you so much. I'm a Pergola and I have a platinum status. That's vision strategy velocity platinum so I asked Chris Flight Status Match me to elite gold in which they did in order to open up more options for travel to Asia and Europe with star Alliance outside of vegetative deals with Eddie Hod and Singapore Airlines. This person says that they've just booked a Virgin Australia. Flights Domestic flight from Brisbane to Sydney and they found that did not count Ford's elite miles wiles with Chris Flyer they would miles on the krisflyer account is correct. Now Rubik's yes. Unfortunately that is correct so so when you're flying with Virgin Australia on A. Va Kurd flight. You can increase flier miles and you can. If you have elite status with US important lines you can use those benefits when you're flying with virgin edginess trailer but you won't earn any elite miles which count towards re-qualification for Krisflyer status now the only way to an elite miles on on Virgin Australia. Flights is if you're booked on a Singapore Airlines codeshare. Now whether whether a Singapore Airlines codeshare exists on the flight is not relevant here. What's relevant is that you're booked on that fly on the S Q flight Numba and the only way to do that is to book it in conjunction with a Singapore Airlines flight which involves involves Singapore? So if you're traveling from Brisbane to Sydney unfortunately you won't be able to do that. Now that said if you're using our star lines airlines like Thai Haier's or a or any of the star lines airlines. You can increase flyer miles for those flights as long as your Inonu Affect your book. Tina fey class that is eligible to end miles. So that's one way. Yes unfortunately that is one of the limitations of going for Krisflyer status or have a velocity status if you live in Australia and fly quite a little vision astray Leah and of course if you're flying on Singapore Airlines you do understand his credits on velocity. So it's bit annoying annoying. That doesn't work in the other direction. Bullets just the way it is I have say I hope you're able to find a find a solution. That works for you Rubik's but Yeah that's that's that's how it is. I'm afraid heart that this is a question Before I also just a quick shoutout to the fifth member Melwood he says Nava thumbs up for the podcast. I I really enjoy it. Among my various podcasts each vote night. It's really applicable to sterling travelling. Obviously but that's what makes a useful. I do find that you tend to save one road and Qantas jetstar lines and sky team. How about an episode on their round the world opportunities and availability realizing there are few skyteam options out of Australia And yes melwood. It is true that I do spend probably more time. Told me about one world and Qantas. But that's because they are more prominent Tina Australia and more popular among Israeli and frequent frequent flyer is given the Qantas and Is the only alliance based airline which is based in Australia. I have talked about star alliance in a few episodes is but I do agree that I could spend some more time talking about. Start Lines Sky Tame so consider suggestion free feature episode. If you have a question that you'd like to answer and so on the next episode Ye can ask on the discussion thread or if you have any feedback. That's.

"For example you can only upgrade own Qantas operated flights using actual quotas points so if fuel earning British Airways Avio might not be able to use those upgrades on Qantas flights that said you can of course redeem the obvious which is the currency of the British Airways Executive Club Program Program for Qantas reward seats. Also it's worth mentioning that this may change in the future one word is considering some changes to how upgrades work across the alliance. So I guess we'll have to stay with that but that is one possible downside. Now in general when it comes to the currency of British Airways Executive Club Aguilar's the OSS It's very very good value for short haul flights but not so good for long-haul flights So if you're redeeming British ashamed for like maybe short flights within Australia sydney-melbourne Hamburger Brisbane. That kind of thing is very very good value with heavy all six thousand Abbas for an economy seed or twelve and a half thousand business class on flights of up to six hundred and fifty miles and for other short hogs coke signs. It's also quite valley. Unfortunately with long haul flights avalos is not such good value. That said there is an exception. And that's the British Airways is one world multi carrier award which is pressed surprisingly. Well if you become multi-city trip that involves at least two one world airlines and Qantas now. This is similar to the Qantas one war which is quite popular. Although the British Airways award is not quite as generous and it's also a bit more difficult to book can't book book this online with the British Airways of what you can get up to eight flight sectors and total but interestingly the price is based on the class of travel the teased the longest August flight on the booking has a bit of a loophole air. It's worth noting that there are a one world airlines that also offer these scour awards which which which you can use to fly around the world at quite a reasonable price a Qantas obviously has the one world war but they'll say Cathay Pacific Asia Miles which is also quite popular pillow and Japan Airlines and Berea in the water lines.

"Frequent flyer even if you fly often with Qantas and even if it's your main airline you don't necessarily have to credit all of your flights to the Qantas OPTUS frequent flyer program and in quotas points in status credits. If you're flying off with lots of other one ward airlines well it could make more sense to use the British Ede's executive club program. Now I'll start off by saying the British Airways doesn't technically allow Australia New Zealand residents to join the Executive Club program but there are some easy ways to get around this. For example you could list the address of an overseas friend or relative or you could conveniently how forget how to spell Australia until eighty live in a country that borders Germany and Switzerland. Not that I told you that but yeah there are a few reasons. If you did want to join that you might want to make the switch to be a and a lot of these have to do with status now. Firstly does not penalize you for flying with other one would airlines in the same way that Qantas does and just to give you an example if you're flying with Malaysia Airlines from Sydney to London and back in business class not only will Qantas this award. You status credits and points at flexible economy rates rather than the actual business class rate. But there's also a significantly reduced rate that applies to Malaysia Airlines flights. On those routes. So with Qantas he'd be earning I think it's around hunter native status credits for that round trip raise to credit the exact same flights to the British Airways Executive Club program in six hundred t points which is enough to reach the equivalent of Qantas Gold status. So it's around more than three times the rate over at British Airways and that's just one example. The other thing with British Airways is that they do. You have better benefits for very frequent flyers earned status with British Airways that is going to anyone would status which he can use when you fly with Qantas Airlines but in addition to like a Qantas has platinum one status but British Airways has what it calls. Gold guest list and these are additional benefits frequent flyers that any additional points beyond the requirements for gold status me and keeping my British Airways gold status is equivalent of Qantas platinum platinum or one would emerald and there are some very very decent benefits available for example. If you in two thousand five hundred points nearby get a goat upgrade for two out of three thousand five hundred points. He gets to go upgrade for one vouchers and at five thousand points he get a Concord Green Card. If you weren't five thousand points in the also receive goad ghastliest benefits this entitles you to give away one gold executive club part Nakada and who silver cards. So that's basically the equivalent of one quotas platinum and two Qantas gold cards in the one world equivalents. You can also book up to five or would seeds..
