What happens if you test positive for COVID-19 and can’t fly back to the US?

"About 50,000 flight attendants from 17 Airlines wants those airlines to share their individual. No fly list information right now. Those lists are kind of airline specific. Jay Ratliff, Aviation expert Joining us all the coca News Live. I'm good to have you back J Hey, pleasant. Good morning. So these no fly lists. Um what are the no fly list about? Do they involve masks or are they just generally people behaving badly in the skies? When the mask policy was put into place by airlines is is kind of a way to Yeah, Get some passengers to be a little bit more comfortable about flying at first, you may remember is optional If he had a medical condition you didn't have to worry about wearing a mask, but it seems like 78% of the aircraft had some sort of medical issue. Opted not to wear them. So that's when it became mandatory for anyone over two years of age to wear masks during the entire flight over your nose and your mouth. Some passengers did not want to do that, And as a result, they created either issues in the gate or onboard an aircraft. And those passengers had to be removed or once the plate was completed. Escorted off of the aircraft, and those passengers were put on the airlines No fly list, which is basically This is in place until the mass policy is listed. And then we will welcome you back. But until then, since you've proven that you can't abide by our mass policy, we're gonna ban you until The policy is no longer in place that the issue is if I act upon a Delta flight and cause a disturbance that gets to wherever we're going, they pulled me off the flight and say, Look, you're not gonna be arrested. But you didn't follow the airlines mass policies were banning you from Delta Airlines for the time being. Could say Okay, and then I just zip on down to United. Grab a flight on them, and I can fly anywhere. I want to go and the flight attendants are saying, Look, if J X up on Delta. The consequences shouldn't only be on Delta. It should be on all U. S carriers. You're basically giving this crazy guy can opportunities on 10 different airlines to act up inconveniencing perhaps 10 different flights that they're on, and flight attendants are just that the point now where every single day Mask police. There's no federal guidelines for mass policies yet, so it's all the airline policy and most people recognize it As such, so they really don't feel threatened by, you know, getting in trouble, so to speak. Because they know it's going to be something that only involves that airline. There's not gonna be fined or anything like that. However, last week, the Federal Aviation Administration came out said Look, if you cause an onboard disturbance with an airline You face a possible fine of up to $35,000. So now there's a little bit more of an incentive for somebody like Jay to not create a problem with the mask or anything else. So that I don't get in trouble with the FAA. All right, So let's move on to, you know, travel in the age of covert with airlines that went toe, you know, they were started by keeping people at least one seat apart now, not so much on now. There's an Air American Airlines initiative for a health passport. So how does that work exactly? American Airlines is the first airline to adopt this health passport. They're working with Vera fly. It's an app that can show whether or not you've been tested for the coronavirus. And it comes in handy because now that the CDC is saying as of the 26th of this month, if you fly internationally, you're coming back into the United States. You're gonna have to prove that you've had a negative covert test within three days. Of your date of travel, or you have to show documentation that you had the coroner virus you recovered, Okay? And the issue is how do you prove that? Well, this app is in place. Now that will make these these medical testing or records available quickly. So it is you fly. You can show the agents you have, and then you'll be able to board the plate back into the United States. Clusters. Other countries around the world that had that same sort of requirement for entry into their country. And this type of Anak would satisfy those countries. For the most part. Or they could see Okay, you've been tested. It was in three days. No positive tests, You know, come on into the country. You don't have quarantine for 14 days. Alright, And we're gonna see more airlines following suit of this now. The real interesting part is Are we going to see this domestically? Qantas Airlines has already said once the vaccine is out there passengers have been vaccinated will be allowed to fly on certain flights if you've not been vaccinated. They're not gonna let you fly. Oh, if you think you think we're having fun over, you know, mask situations. Wait. So that rules out And when you guys were kidding about Burbank earlier, laughing because they said, you guys may not be too far off. If this type of thing happens domestically, I don't think it will. But I learned a long time ago. And 30 years of doing my aviation reports. You never say never when it comes to the airline industry. Oh, boy, they were at left.

"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. Hey, Alex, are any airlines mandating a covert tests before certain flights? 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.

International airline is currently operating almost no international flights to to the pandemic but this is just a temporary lull for the flying kangaroo and i have no doubt that we back stronger than ever to flies trillions all over the world again for the next one hundred years once the pandemic's under control to mark the occasion on monday qantas will operate a special centenary sightseeing flight and also little celebrations going on around the country including the qantas founders museum in long ridge. But what exactly happened one hundred years ago. What's the full story behind. Cornices humble beginnings. Tom howard is the curator of the qantas founded alpine museum in longer beach and he joins me now on the podcast. Welcome good morning. How are you. I'm very well. Thanks for coming on the podcast. So you're the curator at the qantas fans e. What does that involve them do. And i just get involved far look stuff in a border since I guess how do research i write. Articles for the event historical aspects of the story of qantas. But i guess more importantly that also have a large part in deciding what we've items become part of the collection museum halladay. Despite what a story we told with those things Unfortunate reality for most museums is not everything could be just flat. Anyone time chris too much and so qualifying stuff in storage and then building a display around a variety of items so when people give us things oh it was asking if you can write me a few words about how you kind of have this thing. What's your story. What slot were you on. What did you do. What do you remember that so of thing. So it's just an autumn of being given. It's the story behind the people as way concerned. The museum is telling people stories. We airplanes got really replace. We'll get some very very replies. Full-size things but that's not what the story is about. The story is about the people who created a national icon out of nothing hundred years. It's amazing story. And that's what the museums that my. My role is to look after things to sobriquets museum to develop displays and then to also mind kind things so i might be if my sympathize putting a piece of pipe in a plastic sleeve for the future. It might be out. There was a guinea cleaning in. That's the range of activities. I get involved in so there's no simple answer to what the what was the curator do. Oh all sorts of things. Yes yes and do you have many items sort of in storage that you're not able to display at any given time. Because i guess the museums. I may sit and size. Gary the figure most musings workers hope is probably eighty. What we what we have in election collection is not on display. Because you also have to turn things. We can't let things despite as rule because even artificial light will damage things. There's dust in the air. You have to documents from our real concern for fighting because you can dislike for just a month. They need to retire the them away with three months so they can recover and risk before the commencement and is trying to gain. So it's it's ver- tighting sort of things Most things put away safely what we can before display and we will build a themed display around a number of items that actually feel story rather than say..

Now it's middle of next year. We're not sure of the date and Alaska Airlines also said they're going to extend is their country. I can go to the January I'm sorry. Is there a country I can go to? There's plenty of countries you goto Delicious. Have testing if you get tested, okay? You need to get tested almost all of them. But you go to Turkey. You Khun! Go, Teo, Albania! You can go to Croatia. You Khun! Go! Tio Tio Edy French Pawn these TV Be fun. So there are there are there are places and a lot of a lot of the Caribbean islands are open. So you got to do your research. Make sure that you find out what kind of test that require. You can't just go toe. You know, health right? There is a risk because what people are perhaps realizing is that there are certain luxuries we could do without Maybe going to the movies and travel, for instance, or luxuries we could do without and there's a risk to these industries that people will their habits will change. You definitely change. They're worried about that. So actually, I'm wearing a Qantas shirt right now. This is ah love Qantas. I do They give this to you when you fly up front, which is, you know, they give you jammies. This's a pajama top. It's so funny. You see, people walk into the bathroom and they come out on their jammies. I do all the time, Even when I even when I'm flying coach, it's very coming. They don't provide jammies. I'll bring my own. Bring your own James about a 15 hour flight right after takeoff. I change my clothes and comfy. But speaking of planes the 7 37 Max is coming back. American Airlines has said this week that they're going to bring it back in December. Everything I'm not doing is getting on that. I know a lot of people do not want to get out of, but I'll have to argue that this is probably the safest plane in the sky. But they lied to us. Wait a minute, though They were not honest about the dangers that without a doubt, I used to love so now I'm supposed to trust them that they fixed it. I'm gonna wait Well, it's not just blowing. The FAA took a hit to because they were in cahoots with with they didn't But now that Elliott agencies have were the first ones to actually say it's it's approved to go. So I trust them more, which is says in that said, Isn't that a statement about that about the world? I mean, I've been to the Boeing plant many times, but they they really messed up. It'll be the safest plane ever. But I wouldn't fly the 7 37 Max, especially American Airlines, when only fewer lines have it of southwest in the U. S on Dumb. Yeah. Oh, man.

COVID-19 in Victoria, Australia

"Gratified Friday that's right. Twenty third of Tober pardon the PUN number really pushing towards the grand finale Victoria in terms of stamping out the lost. Stubborn pots of coronavirus is still spreading down there. Yes, and there's clearly still virus around in the northeast corridor. Expected of totally disappeared from there and the pop up clinic, and that's that's the way it's going to go forward US way it's going New South Wales in Swiss going to go forward in Victoria and it's a good thing that they're onto its and jumping onto things quickly. So what we're looking forward to on Sunday from Andrews hopefully is certainly moving forward the restriction relaxations he talked about November I this weekend, but I suspect you might see but more than that in terms of. Restaurants spars that sort of thing where you just might see a speeding up or much more much better defined pathway to those opening up in the near future because Victoria is in pretty good shape we did he gets day battle outbreak in a housing block area in Melbourne is this just like we don't need a look down to get on top of those riot if the public health machine is working better now than it was before the and also if you've got the community onside and they're willing to cooperate because the realized the implications of very much larger knock time. So it's the fuel for the fires. When people are living in densely populated circumstances so it could spread incredibly quickly. So going to get on top to get on top of it quickly, but the capacity to do so is much better and there's less distraction around in Victoria. There's a lot of distraction around when you those terrible outbreaks in addition to the other outbreaks in abattoirs and elsewhere in Victoria there's. A lot going on towards the last time there outbreaks in those densely populated towerblocks these days the capacity is there to focus more and have fewer distractions around because there's so much less virus circulating the virus is circulating you know where it's come from right and so I sort of moving towards our kind of steady state of figuring out our relationship with this virus here. And hopefully, looking at opening up our internal borders at some stage in the near future. WHAT ABOUT INTERNATIONAL BORDERS? There's still lots of Australians overseas. There's. All. Students. WanNa come here. Tourism operators here are really struggling and I'm sure there's some. Really want to go overseas as well. WH- should've reopening paddle clack for Ustralia more broadly. Well, it's a very complicated landscape. You Go to feel for these thirty odd thousand students who went back many of them are quite unwell. Don't be exposed to covid nineteen in the places where they're at and they desperately want to get home to their families and they feel cut off. The problem is that we tend to have a one-size-fits-all to our overseas entries and it should be possible to open up a more strategic way if the politics would allow it and I'm not blaming the politicians here is a difficult situation and you've got to do something about stranded. Australians. Overseas. But a lot of them are in countries which have a high prevalence of SARS covy to like the UK European, the US and places like that. Tends to be where strain school some of them are in Asia and lower prevalence countries. So when you're sending a Qantas plane over to London to pick up people, you're bringing back in the plane presumably, they could take three or four hundred people bringing back hundred and seventy five because the crews got to be protected and the people on board to be protected bear in mind that all of the tens of thousands of who've already. Return the only been three or four hundred infections in. Australia. Yes. We hear about the movie dates true but it's low numbers trouble with that is as we've seen Victoria, you only need one episode of escape from Whole Hotel, it's not the family escaped by the virus did circumstances and you've got a real problem on your hands. So the risk is high, but the risk is particularly high when you're bringing back people from high prevalence countries. You've got a lot of international students in China. You'd have to exclude those in India because that's a high prevalence country but China is a low prevalence country. The should be a way of bringing back international students quite soon from China with judicious testing intensive testing, maybe limited quarantine with intensive testing, and there are ways of doing that but perhaps turning over halls of residence colleges to their limited quarantine that you might. Introduce Singapore certainly New Zealand. Pacific. Islands that you could open up these places quite quickly, and of course, if a stranger stranded there, those would be your first priority. You could probably stand up on this plane over and fill it up particularly wear masks and bring it back with a far more than one hundred, seventy, five on board, and almost a full complement of passengers. Because the risk is so low, so should be possible to a risk adjusted system where for safe areas, you have one way of managing it and from high-risk is another and this probably no alternative if you're living in the UK or Europe and want to get back to coming back on a on a very low load plane. So this is different to travel bubble. Is that it's a bit more like you still have to quarantine, but it's just not does we don't have to have as high stringency because the risk is lower it needs a lot of thought it's not straightforward and the highest priority has to be stranded strings overseas. It's just intolerable that we don't solve that problem and it's a bipartisan shoes not party political but equally. Doing. This, which minimizes the risk from already low-risk countries. The should be a way to manage risk more carefully an a nuanced way depending on where people are coming from. So it's not an open bubble, but it is a lower intensity of corn team. So let's take some questions from audience and what better way to rip through a few to do him as a quickfire Friday round you ready ready to go now. Jeffries asking you mentioned the other day that masks need to be washed at sixty degrees Celsius to make sure the virus free but domestic hot water services limited to fifty degrees. So I wanted to be hand washing his cloth masks in water hated in the kettle or what I think that random mackel worked find that sixty degrees was what did the work but you'll find that detergent in warm water should do it the same way it's just that extended washing cycle I think. So fifty degrees, sixty degrees who knows whether it makes any difference the. Point that Ryan McIntosh was making here is a quick rinse in the hand basin. There's not enough specimens a farmer and wants to know why if humans contracted card from animals? Why are the mammals supposedly don't get the virus and has anyone bothered to test shaped cattle pigs and so on record low testing of animals corona there's a lot of coronavirus infection in animals. Pigs get a similar co diseased covid nineteen, and in fact, there is a pig vaccine as far as I'm aware to a respiratory syndrome similar to covid nineteen, but it's not SARS coffee to. are lower than will species have been tested and not find to carry this dogs can be infected but don't seem to retain the virus very well whereas cat. stew. Agricultural, animals don't seem to be a big problem to corona virus is prevalent in lots of different species. This person's flying to dial in from CD next week's visit family added about it. What precautions should they take for the flight? Well, I think for any flight my view is that you should wear a mask threat flight and just be careful about hygiene and Qatar saves on Colonel Cast a few days ago when you flush the toilet. Religious so you don't have an erase allies. And I think this question is asking about sewage testing how can test for the virus with all those millions of latest of water and other chemicals and just take a small test tube and still be able to identify the virus Yup it's mind boggling but they're able to genetically to actually look for the fragments of the virus I think that this is done with antibodies that pickup the virus, and then lie top when they've picked up the. Joys a big fan of Corona cast and her son is a paramedic in London and has had a very mild case of covid nineteen. But she's heard recently that everyone who gets five nineteen has long lasting effects in the front of their brain. Is this true please cleared up her because she's worried you can stop worrying Joe it's far from through a percentage of people do get long-term. Effects. And it's really not known yet what the percentage is, but it's not the of people and one more question Norman Magin one infectious person walks into a room with ten others spends a considerable amount of time seven, get the virus and three. Why don't those three becoming victim? Is it because I got better immune systems probably just the play of chance, but it could be that you've got some genetic. To the virus always somebody in society with a new virus, who's got genetic resistance to that virus by the play of chance, these are mysteries to which we don't know could be that they just didn't inhale quite as many viral particles as others who knows it is a difficult question hasn't indeed uses it.

So out Super Constellation is doesn't hold any Qantas deny. It's wasn't wasn't a quantity Connie because there's so few them still. Around the world and very few contests wants. So we were way for many many many years that there was this one sitting over in Manila in the Philippines at Midland. International. Airport and eventually came up for auction. And, we were successful in our bid and then we went. Oh okay. We've gotta get hung now. A challenge. It had hit it sat there for twenty, twenty, six years. This particular when we have started its life with the the US Navy and then was was purchased by an agricultural. Fisheries Company winky's fish who operated it, and then it was It sat in Miller. International. Airport for for twenty six years and we went over there again, Qantas fantastic team of engineers helped volunteers came over and helped us two things we had to pull around in the mud get some. Get some the landing gear working and movable the wheel studies. Then we worked on a disassembly project We took the wings off the four engines that big tried famous troy tile. And all the landing gear, and then we fabricated some big big crowds in Fort. Frames, still frames and then short stories. We moved it from the airport to the seaport. which took a very, very long time because they were. We couldn't actually get because of rug lakes and. And the they were building a new. Bypass in in Manila. So we only had to travel about seven kilometers probably had to almost twelve months to get the on but we did get them. And then we got to the sea port where we put old is parts on a on a ship and shifted into Townsville into the port, of Townsville. In Queensland, and then it came by road into long where the big restoration project and reassembly. Began Oh, wow. Yeah. Quite quite a challenge is. Pretty. EPIC Pretty epic project, but Yeah. It's. It's those sorts of things really really excite me with. All, and the divers, the of the role and. Whether. It's Yes. I'm used go broad. We found out Catalina in Spain was originally being used as a firebomb and it was pioneered in college. Good luck in New York taxi. And we flew that hunt. We had we had issues with that too, which often do aircraft without age but. We all have to come those challenges and and now it's he painted in the Qantas colors and for guests to enjoy in an another fabulous story about the the the men that operated those those amazing double sunrise flights during the war It's it's just wonderful story to tell you WanNa tell me about the double sunrise fought. The Catalina 's operated June second mode worn. By essentially kept the communication lines open between the stride in the UK and still hold the world record for the longest flight the. Upwards of thirty, two hours. Continuous flight incredible in the nineteen forties. Yeah. You matching traveling for that long and they're not, they're not the most comfortable aircraft and when you look at them and incredibly noisy too. So the the crews that operated. Them would just amazing. Absolutely amazing. They were operating through. Japanese occupied waters they often had to fly in complete radio on, it's using often Lee celestial navigation in in in some areas So incredibly brave crews that that that flew these CAN WE WE? We do a lot of work with with the different historic historical departments including Australian. Warm more away. We're trying to get these guys recognize for this service during the war. They flew. Flew very important. People the high ranking military officers to and and government officials, and not to mention all the microfilmed communication this. Whole, microfilm to reduce white. Very important communications between. Between countries as well as mile and other other things. An amazing service. And well, you. You mentioned when you the Connie. Back from the Philippines, he got the help from a lot of volunteers from Qantas and people like that Almost. The people working at the museum form onto staff or they locals or Yeah who working back? Yeah. So it's it's. It's. It's wonderful that we are able to employees We're probably not the biggest employer in.

British Airways Announces Immediate Retirement of Boeing 747 Fleet

"Airways has just announced this morning a little bit in line with Qantas that effective, almost immediately They're going to be retiring. Their whole fleet of seven forty sevens is currently have thirty one still in operation, which be taken out of the fleet, now of course is because a few passenger numbers and less capacity needed because all of these airlines are very well. They kind of need to get to a point of being carbon neutral they they need. Need to be of good pr, so the older planes get out of the fleets much earlier, but I thought it was exactly that there's still four hundred sixteen flying around the world at the beginning of this month, and I love how many had been manufactured and fifteen, one, thousand, five, hundred, fifty eight from fifty years ago. So when you think one in three of those planes is still in active service is an extraordinary number, and when you think about the seven forty seven hundred. If we want to sort of get a little bit. Nostalgic, there's there's really no other airline air aircraft that that's come close me yesterday. Three Eighty you know came out as as a full length, double decker but when you think about the the golden age of flying, we can go back and look at seven Oh sevens. What those meant to Pan and and and Flying Clippers and concord, but there is something about the seven forty seven as well it was, it was quite democratic to with an airliner of charter charter brands as as much is of course. Some of the world's leading carriers got you around the world. Yes back in the fifties began when the airlines began to say the US. Airlines began to sites by. Can you build us a plane? Maybe that's two and a half times bigger than anything else we currently have. They came up with the Boeing. It was tested in the late sixties. It went into service in nineteen seventy, but there's something about that shape. The court, every kid's imagination you. Remember being young and looking up at the sky and you'd see that, Silhouette. You could be the most useless plane-spotter in the world. You knew what you were saying. And there's something also just was glamorous about the notion that you could go up the spiral staircase and and up in another floor of a plane. And oddly we may have seen double deckers committed with the a three eighty. It doesn't have the glamorous. Double Decker bus. There was something about being in that little secret part at the top, it was almost like being on a private plane attached to a regular commercial flight that was that was glamour, and there was there was kind of sexiness about, and there's something side I mean depending on where we get. Over the coming months I do wonder if there's an opportunity 'cause we've seen Qantas have been looking at. Marketing sort of these these last flights on on on the seven forty seven, and of course they're still other carriers who still have them We'll see move. The Japanese are lens some years ago. They retire the for a lot for all of the same reasons. I mean for the fact that they are gas guzzlers. They don't have the most efficient engines that they they are. They are allowed. There is of course a new generation of a seven forty seven and it seems that the president of the United. States will be getting a few of them, but Do you think that this is all a bit knee-jerk or this is? This goes with the Times or do you think maybe be able? Look at this in a few months? Things improving or maybe we shouldn't have retarded them quite so quickly. Well as we've just said you, you just look how reliable they are. The the they have been evolving crashes in the past, but very rarely for technical reasons or design flaws to the plane and the. Great work is often many than there's. Versions, which is still being used in Kaga, but here Monaco. We've had some great stories. We flew on a seven four seven weeks in Andhra all the way from Tehran to Caracas via Damascus.

Maybe I should ask a few questions so that people can get to know him a little bit so welcome bureau and Podcast Matt. Thank you I. Don't usually answer my questions. I have to think about this a little bit. Well hopefully, we can put you on the spot a bit. so first of all. What's your favorite country? visit of all those that you have visited on this quarter view? Can you pick at one? Maybe we'll let you do three. It is extremely hard because I I like a lot of different countries for extremely different reasons. have lived in Germany and loved it very much and I. always enjoy going back to Jimmy. It's just a country. I really adore that as somewhere a little bit different than I love traveling to and would actually highly recommend going for holiday. Kazakhstan it's extremely underrated, and it's just. It's an absolute pleasure to visit it's. Obviously it's not going to have to many tourists there. The moments because of covid nineteen, but even outside of the pandemic and once. It's just such an underrated destination. You don't need a lot of other terrorists but there's so much to see the natural beauty. The people are really lovely. I enjoy the food. It's just an I've seen some absolutely incredible sites there the kind of thing that you would expect to be completely crowded and full of tourists, and it's just not like you have these amazing natural, wonders and amazing feats of architecture basically Oh to yourself say yeah. Kazakhstan would really want to go back there. Okay so hopefully. International borders will even up again soon and what's your favorite airline? To Fly. It's actually Turkish Airlines I know a lot of guests have said Qantas Singapore. Airlines and I enjoy also flying with both of them. Especially Singapore Airlines, but I just love with Turkish. Airlines doesn't matter whether you're flying on a one hour domestic flight around Turkey or maybe a long haul flight tour, and it doesn't matter even if you're in business class, you're going to get fed extremely well with delicious Turkish food. and. The service I found to be pretty consistent end the hot products pretty good, too, and not to mention of course, the Turkish Airlines largeness Tambo which is, I would say right up with the first. Class, lounges. Okay, that's one to keep in mind. What about the frequent flyer program? You have a favorite is a Turkish or somebody else. now I don't use models and smiles miles this other Turkish models and smalls program does have a star Line Status Challenge, and their child is not bad, so he does have a value, but I would really say. Singapore Airlines Chris Fly would be Probably my favorite program on the earning and burning of points side so obviously you can Chris fly miles from various different Australian credit cards through their woods programs. And then redeem those four excellent value star alliance awards. In terms of status though the. At the moment I have status with the United and Qantas I think the star alliance is a very good alliance I. Like flying with them when when you know when I vs travel is possible. However I'm not going to be renewing my united status once it expires because of some some of the changes. They've made to that program. for any status I'm going to be focusing on club going food and I think we've talked about club in a in a previous episode with. With one of my guests, but as club makes it so easy to and Star Line status. They have very low requirements for lifetime status, and yeah, it's it's just Ext. it's ridiculously easy to and you get to keep status for up to four years. Until you need to renew it, because the two year membership time cycle. Okay, and you mentioned Chris. Fly The admit now. I have a hard expiry only points they yet. Three years so don't transfer lodge. Amounts of points decrease flyer until you ready to use them I. Guess is the the Moral Abbott. If you're if you're an increase flyer miles through credit cards, then it's. You just basically transferred them as you need them. You don't have to worry about the expiring. K. There. Would you have a tip for those who are just starting at on this? Point game. Many and I talk about them obviously each each fortnight in this podcast say listen to this podcast for probably a good start, but. For those who are just? Absolutely newbies to the frequent flyer points game if you're not already a member of Qantas frequent. Just be aware et that. Qantas does charge nine thousand nine hundred fifty joining fee for their frequent flyer program, but nobody pays that. Don't pay that fee. Just Google Qantas frequent flyer free join Lincoln there many many ways to sign up without paying a fee to don't don't fall into that trap like I did always easy when I actually pay for joining fee. Well. That's that's a bit of a revelation on that one, but I think one of the easiest ones is will worth he can get for joining Louis if I remember correctly and many many others as you say, yeah, absolutely and I mean I. Think think he can even just go to. Comedy Slash Free Join which is Google and they to the banks have links as well two ways. You can join for free. Say You don't pay the fee. Okay, and what about for those are more season implying this point guy? What tips would you have for them? How many I guess if I had to pick one, I would say work backwards. When deciding which frequent flyer program to focus on a lot of people will just end quotas points by to vote, and then once they. Decide that they want to use them for something. They get a little bit solution by how many. Points they need the amount of taxes and carry charges payable, or they find simply no availability to wherever they want to go, so I would say workout first of all first and foremost how you actually want to use the points where you want to travel to work backwards, without which is the best frequent flyer program to use for that purpose and ended, and how you can end points in that program rather than the other way. A really good so I. would say is if you're earning points with a credit card. Look at earning points with a credit card rewards program, which allows you to transfer points to multiple different programs, rather than just ending quotas, points, or just velocity points and anyone who has a velocity points in in credit card right now. No, the risking just adding points with one program. INNING with credit card was program. You have so much more flexibility and it's also. It's just a be safer. because. He not your points on held hostage in one program. With an airline that may or may not be around next year. Yeah, that's that's good advice. Now What's the Promotion Frequent Flyer will launch permission that you've not only come across Benaud to take advantage of low I. There's a few I mean I've taken advantage of a few era phase like I. Go to three hundred dollars trip on. Singapore. Airlines to career a couple of years ago, which was I thought excellent value I've really enjoyed some of the promotions with buying miles from American Airlines in life miles that I would say really the will cost flight reward would..

"Some things are happening a lot of great things. Unfortunately we continue with the theme such as it is in our corn teen state so phase. One of all of this was figuring out what the hell was going on that lasted. I think I WANNA say early. To mid March into April. It was back when we still had a chance of tracking what the Hell is going right. And then April turned into service reductions or finalizing service reductions making them more less ad hoc hall say and figuring out how airlines. We're going to operate in this new environment and then dealing with how to do. We continue to operate these cities. Do we continue to operate these aircraft and things like that and now that airlines have had some time near on two months to SESA situation a lot of airlines have started saying aircraft that where on the way out that we were considering possibly not having flypast date are gone? And the latest. Today is the Virgin. Atlantic fleet is shrinking measurably as the seven. Four seven are gone. They will not fly again. They're parked and they will not be returning and actually that is a bit more than just a seven four Sevens Virgin Atlantic is in dire straits at this point and they have withdrawn from London Gatwick Airport entirely at this point. It will keep the thoughts in hope that when demand picks back up it will resume flights at Gatwick. But who knows when that is? It may or May Not Happen Virgin Atlantic may or may not be airline in a year. I hope it is but we shall see but for now any of those fights that still operate will be operated out of Heathrow instead of Gatwick and don't be a I believe the other day is also said they're axing service from Gatwick so Gatwick not looking too good right now. Is it no? It's not an version saying they'll keep the slots is dependent on whether or not they're allowed to keep those slots so I think that'll be something interesting to watch whether or not that puts be a in a position to maybe get a better deal out of it or if anyone else wants to met jet blue once upon a time would have paid a princely sum for those thoughts but M- assuming those transatlantic desires are no more but we will see in at the same time virgin reaffirmed that it will be retiring. It's eight hundred thirty two hundred that I believe it acquired from the demise of Air Berlin in twenty twenty two as planned. So that's what a ten eleven aircraft headed out. Sizeable Chunk never small fleet and seven immediately. So that's pretty a pretty big drop off and then there's what happened at American. Were pretty much. If it was an older aircraft is grounded indefinitely and permanently retired. Gone are the seven. Six Sevens gone are the seven five seven. Jason I are actually looking into purchasing one. Beer can go on exactly gone. Are the nineties and gone are the CR J two hundreds operated by PSA? So that's another sizable chunk. Yeah none of. This is particularly surprising. The seven six seven fives and Iwo Ninety S. We're all slated to be retired sooner rather than later within the next year or two. Actually I believe we're missing the eighth HR thirty three hundred from this lists. Yes let's see. I wanted to be missing one and we'd get yelled at if we forgot it. So it's seven seven seven five seventy one ninety eighth three thirty three hundred not the two hundred and the CR J two hundred so those were all especially the ninety s and eighty three threes. Those were rumored for years now to be retired but now we finally know for sure those will be parked and almost certainly will not fly again as passenger aircraft. I would say the very good chance. Seven six get a new lease on life as freighters the seven. Fives have no idea. The nineties are interesting. They weren't that but American. Just had no place in. Its fleet for them. So what might happen to though? I do not know some. You went ninety S. The nineties are far too young to join the Pech mortar fleet. I mean we don't really look at anything beyond debates at this point. I look forward to the introduction of this seven to seventy or fleet one day one day. We'll get there. Were still a four engined for all as I like to say interesting so yeah American also recently last year. If you listened to the podcast you know that they retired the the mad dog the eighties with a huge amount of fanfare out in. Roswell these aircraft will not be getting such a party or celebratory retirement. Unfortunately the the tone this year is a bit different Disney it. It's a single line in a press release is what it is and maybe that's okay these days. I don't know there will be no party. Just a somber press release. Meanwhile north of the border up in Canada Eric Cannata will be retiring. Seventy nine aircraft including the seven six seven eight three nine thousand nine hundred and the e one ninety all of which are out. Oh no fleet immediately. Love No love for the ninety. Well no I don't know if the seven six seven in the eighth nineteen out in Malibu just ninety out immediately yours is unclear to me is being reduced anyway and yeah but this is particularly interesting because the seven six seven is rouges. Only wide-body aircraft rouges Air Canada's low costs unit so this affects rouge pretty hard. The bulk of its fleet is eight hundred. Nine thousand nine hundred seven six seven. They also have some three thousand three twenty ones but this will leave. Air Canada without a wide body fleet to operates mid haul and long haul flights especially transatlantic. So I don't know what happens to rouge in the future. Does it limit to just North American flights and the Caribbean? Or what? Well I think two things one. I'm not sure that the seven six seven hundred nineteen phase out effects rouge entirely. Oh it does that. It's that literally. Okay if you add the numbers up it is every facet. Every three nineteen equals Air Canada. Plus ruse got it so in that case. Here's what I say to you. Air Canada said that they're going into hibernation mode for three years. I mean they've been not terribly optimistic. Run off with. I mean but I think it's going to serve him. Well I really do. I think it's going to serve them. Well they're coming out with their. I forget what they branded it but cleaning promise and how they're sanitizing the yeah. Yeah and so. I think that in these times perhaps pessimism is warranted. If not only because it's probably a more accurate sentiment but I think that it sets you up for being pleasantly so I would much rather be pleasantly surprised that I have to bring more planes back from the desert than I didn't put enough planes into the desert and now I'm a very curious position. Yeah we'll see what happens. Nobody knows every crystal ball is pretty fuzzy at this point. I mean I think at this point that have all been taken smashed on the floor. I think they're parked out in the bone yard parked at crystal balls out in the desert. A boy anyway in the rundown fleet retirements sustained north. Yeah this is not a huge surprise. Alaska Airlines has decided it will not bring back the eight nine teens. It acquired from Virgin America which it never really wanted in the first place. They never refurbish those aircraft. They were actually still sporting the Virgin America Interior. Those are parked and will not be fine under the brand ever again. Hopefully somebody picks those up one day someone will perhaps explain to me and we can do this on the podcast. Or if anyone just wants to write an email to podcasts two four dot com I will spring for a meal or something if anyone can convincingly explain to me why Alaska Bought Virgin to screw jet blue route network. I mean that just enough reason. It was a fleet. It didn't want interior product. It did not want employees did not want really just wanted to make sure jet blue did not get all of the above guy. Yes so yeah. That's the three hundred are gone but that was probably going to happen regardless and then last but not least I think gun laws. Were missing anything right now. In the last two weeks Qantas Seven. Four seven will not be returning to the skies nor will some of the eight hundred eighty s probably. Maybe they've stopped the refurbishment process on the a three eighty. So there were six done and six to go. They've parked a few the a three eighty S. And so how many of those come back and when nobody knows nope but the seven four seven are in fact done for. That was rumored to be happening when they did there. I think the fly by on their last commercial flight with it that actually had passengers but it will not be coming back so and those were the special seven four seven. Four hundred ers were unique to Qantas. Yeah I mean. None of this is surprising. No but that also means that's the end of an aircraft type. Yeah worlds ahead and thought about it. Take that so. That's the first. It's not just Qantas grounding the seven four seven four hundred. Er they were the only airline that ever had that. So unless some other airline that Baltia maybe picks up four hundred Er. That's it that Avatar Avatar hats right. So I'M GONNA go.

Coronavirus travel: Visitor quarantine in Florida, Hawaii, and Alaska

"I just saw this that big vacation states like Florida Hawaii Alaska are saying there's a visitor quarantine tell us what that means well it is a record here it basically means if you show up in a hole I will treat you to stroll by ship or by air or you drive to Florida or fly to Florida same thing with Alaska you're really going to a self imposed fourteen day quarantine but but it's it's not not eating differently when you think about it then you know bring in illegal fruits and vegetables you are the illegal fruit and vegetable in this case so please don't go they came into a little bit late they should have done a little earlier but there's a reason now why airlines like Ryanair is no longer flying to the mainland and then they basically cut out all their service in the in the same thing will soon happen at least in terms of flights down requested between where I am right now in New York and Florida so you know it's interesting because you also heard Florida governor Ron DeSantis talk he issued an executive order it initially was criticized for not forgiving the beach is open for spring break but now he's saying if you're gonna fly in from New York New Jersey or Connecticut you need to self isolate for fourteen days because they're seeing people from New York which is the epicentre in America of this virus right now travel down to Florida to try to get out of the big city where people are on top of each other it makes sense but they are trying to make sure that it doesn't cause a problem there well good luck enforcing that show quarantine says who who's gonna stop in and stop me what they really should do and it's going to happen very soon take a look what's going on in New York in the governor's order here on the governor's order in California and your own governor Eloy sooner or later every state's going to have to do this tomorrow how many cases there reporting because the food was good but what I'm understanding is worries whether but maybe been so few cases reported in what states would say like West Virginia is because they don't have the testing done where you have testing the obvious you're gonna have more cases reported but in terms of how it relates to travel what we're really looking at now it's on the drawing board no announcements have been made is a possible shutdown of domestic air service in this country yeah and the number the airlines would love to have that happen simply because from an economic point of view they can't sustain the traffic loads they're getting a fair averaging only twenty five percent load factors on their flights the reason why the airlines are continuing to fly domestically has nothing to do with us it has to do with how the airlines gotten business when I first started back in the nineteen thirties it's called hall in the U. S. mail and if they can come up with an alternative to do that then there's every reason to believe they're going to try to shut down that service completely enough American Airlines converted one other passenger planes to do is go to an all cargo plane and for the first time in thirty years American Airlines actually flew a cargo flight because most the time when they're taking in the mail it's in the same baggage holds your luggage and thought about that it's some interesting to see our people still flying I mean you file the times you've been on a plane recently I have not I'm I'm heating the governor's order I'm I'm I'm staying in place yesterday I'll give you an example delta air lines's park six hundred airplanes so many planes parked you literally had to close a runway in Atlanta just to hold the planes that were parked up and yet yesterday JFK whatever flights are operated by delta we're averaging about thirty percent load factor that is funny actually unsustainable so the answers to your question yes there are people flying but not very many that the TSA has reported you'll love this and eighty six percent drop in the number of passengers screened for the first time if anybody does fly no long lines of the TSA but you know that's an unintended consequence I'm sure yeah kind it is and I I guess people who are already have bought their travel they they bought their tickets to a cruise or airline of the already planned travel for spring or summer what do you advising those folks to do you're hanging on to those tickets you know you're you're you're wondering maybe even a week or two ago you thought you'd still take that trip now looking less certain well let's be realistic here in terms of time frame if you're holding a ticket for anything now between now and may fifteenth or even may thirtieth your flight your cruise is probably not going to go now the airlines will tell you at this moment because their computers have been reprogrammed that that April twenty first flight is still scheduled to go well you know what the Titanic was still scheduled but the bottom line here is as we get closer to those dates and we haven't really mitigated those of the virus curve those flights will cancel so my advice to everybody is if you're holding a ticket for anyone of those flights don't cancel it now because the airlines will then say you're canceling it based on your decision wait until the airlines cancel and then don't just settle for a voucher insist on a full refund because this was it your decision you didn't wake up one morning just capriciously decide you'd want to go the bottom line is you you you contracted for service you did not get you deserve a full refund because right now is that what's happening Peter if you if you tried to call up and say Hey I'm not gonna travel it end of April mid April whatever it is you we don't are you getting vouchers are you seeing people get refunds well it's a case by case one by airline cruise line by cruise line situation well given example of Southwest Airlines the original program in place it's been program put in place for years would be three basically put everything that you put let you pay for into a a separate fund and then you use that phone to fly for the next year but eventually the essentially with the with the once talk about now that the airlines are desperate to do what hold on to their cash however other airlines have been something else Qantas if they give you read that they give you a voucher now we'll give you a voucher worth ten percent more than what you paid for your ticket thank you your user ticket but let's be real here I'll give you an example in the city of Dallas I'm just using this as an example eighty seven percent of people who flew within Dallas who flew on American Airlines last year only for the airline once these are road warriors are frequent flyers their leisure travelers who say that their hard earned dollars to take that one annual trip why would you hold on their money per year that's just not fair it's not right so if you're listening to this right now and you're one of those people and the other one only once you do a voucher keep calling back ask for a supervisor or call my show when we didn't know it we will give you information on my show on Saturday as to how you can try to get that refund because right now this is totally unfair while the government is bailing out the airlines with cash why should the airlines bail you out I saw that that looks like of them so they there is a package I think their loans to the airlines not grants and that's what I've heard they did government can take stake in your company Boeing has said it doesn't want to accept any government stake so they may not even take the aid that's offered how do you feel about this whole package if you had a chance to take a look at it Peter I have been moved to start with the airlines for starters here I have no problem in defining the airlines as critical to our supply chain in this country and to our infrastructure travel and transportation and so if they're going to give them either these grants or these loans there's every reason to expect and to demand conditions and those conditions the way beyond without the eggs it is it was it was do stock buybacks it has to do with how do we move forward from this are we still gonna do these draconian well you know change please enter Conan rebooking flea season make everything non refundable and it's it's it's it's terrible thirty five billion dollars last year was earned by airlines just on ancillary fees and it had nothing to do with actually flying the airplane so bottom line here we need to see I don't think we will see right now because everybody's moving so quickly on this but sooner or later we need to see a consumer component of consumer protection component anything that's that that is attached to a financial bailout for the airline I would agree with that the other thing we keep that keeps coming up is people saying what if I get sick well it was so then this time when so many people are getting these unexpected illnesses what what what rights would you have with an airline to get a refund well first of all let's let's talk about travel insurance the travel insurance companies are very good at trying to get you to buy the insurance is actually go online to make your reservation otherwise hard to complete you can't complete the transaction unless you opt in or out to the insurance without understanding what it covers but most importantly without understanding what it doesn't cover and right now for example you can't get fire insurance after your second four catches fire and guaranteed that almost every travel insurance policy that's out there has an exclusion for pandemic so what we have to do now is we watch as the airlines on an almost daily basis start changing their refund policies from Detroit from trickled into Leicester cone into slightly less draconian and finally after much public outcry and I'll be leading that charge so it's actually fair and beneficial to you I like the way that sounds Peter Peter Greenberg always has the answers when it comes to travel and all things about it thank you Peter Hey John three to six you can hear him here on

"I can see that value in times of hey free flight on Qantas at some point. Right. If I'm not Qantas credit cut hold. If I'm just, you know, an American say flying on Qantas fluent to visit my aunt in, you know, Melvin who'll sit doesn't exist. The then. Then do I benefit as well. Insofar as Qantas has this lovely revenue stream that wouldn't otherwise have an death for it control me less per seat because it has other ways of making money. Oh boy. That's that's you know, I I don't know that I'm going to jump in and and way in and other side of that of that logic. I also this that that you as a because Qantas is part of an alliance. You know, when you do take that flight on Qantas, let's say you're a member of the American advantage program and Qantas part of that of the one World Alliance that you will that you're traveling Qantas will crew can accrue points in your advantage. Membership. So I mean, there's there's that benefit to you. That's very direct. But in terms of, you know, do these well, I will say this, you know, during the last economic downturn for the US programs the credit card portfolios where the only things making money for the airlines. And so to a certain extent when we went through the when we breezed through the two thousand aids two to two thousand eight two thousand nine the portfolios held by American delta United probably Keppel's airlines afloat, and they actually did it bunch of deals if I remember I vaguely remember delta like just selling some enormous number of miles from press. I think to Merican expression, I think American also I believe they had alone that was guaranteed against future mileage receipts from city, so. They were mean for a while. They were the only profitable component of those airlines. And you know, it's it's it this is all this good stuff from from a from a financial perspective because it takes away the revenue from these programs very stable and airline fares and airline fuel expense. Oftentimes are not stable. So it does layer in something at below. That's a stable source of revenue that helps contract the far more risky side of the airline business being passenger fares and the price of fuel..
