Qantas: There goes my trip to the Caribbean

Qantas: There goes my trip to the Caribbean

I just got an email from Qantas Customer Service cancelling my flight to New York at the end of September. In fact, according to the Qantas website Coronavirus bookings changes page, they have cancelled all international flights through to the end of October.

My return flight is booked in November. Yes, it was going to be a long lovely holiday. That’s not cancelled yet.

I’m going to wait until Qantas cancels that inbound flight and turns it into a credit before I do anything about navigating the ins and outs of refunds and fees. Because Qantas cancelled the flight there should be none of these.

This is another timely reminder to wear your seatbelt when seated. Holding you close to your seat will protect you from the sort of injuries sustained on this flight, when unsecured passengers flew to the ceiling of the aircraft, and then came crashing down once the ‘drop’ ceased.

The hope will be that this is an anomaly – a ‘freak accident’ in casual parlance. If it is a systemic error either mechanical or electronic, then this is a larger concern for the airlines that fly Boeing Dreamliner 787 aircraft. Let’s hope it isn’t. If it is, it will pile on the woes to Boeing’s existing stack.

And there I was thinking the most difficult thing about the flight would be whether the A380 I would be on, would be a refurbished cabin, or the old cabin and whether I should upgrade to first on points? Or whether I could fit in a stay at the TWA hotel.

My times have changed!
