You obviously have some form of Dementia. You are the angry one here who thinks that he owns this Blog. And you are the one who keeps making shite comments when you read something that you don’t like. LOL. You T.W.A.T.

You are the angry one here who thinks that he owns this Blog.

That’s interesting because I wouldn’t soil Dover’s blog with pastes coming from a dishonest convicted fraudster. I also would pasta that rubbish to be openly spiteful against people complaining about that crap. You’ve often said you were doing so for that reason (spite).

And you are the one who keeps making shite comments when you read something that you don’t like. LOL. You T.W.A.T.

Not really, people can go back and look. I haven’t made a single comment about your laughable posts for several weeks. The only time I responded was to your abusive comment toward me and I alerted the blog owner (after which you suggested I was a tell tale and driller chimed in). You’ve been spazzing like a dishonest criminal ever since.

In that case the solution is simple, defund that of which you disapprove. Costello holds the purse strings yet does not exercise the power that comes with it so the only thing I can conclude is that he approves.

Posters were talking about Nelson Mandela a couple of days ago. A reminder of Winnie’s work via Tim Blair:

“We have no guns – we have only stones, boxes of matches and petrol,” she told a township crowd. “Together, hand in hand, with our boxes of matches and our necklaces we shall liberate this country.”

Necklacing was the deceptively innocent term for putting a petrol-soaked burning tyre around a perceived traitor’s neck.

Most notoriously, she was found guilty of ordering the kidnapping of a 14-year-old boy, Stompie Seipei, who was beaten and later had his throat slit.

Madikizela-Mandela was acquitted of all but the kidnapping, but the incident remains the greatest stain on her record; years later, she was convicted of more than 40 charges of fraud.

Can’t tell me that Nelson wasn’t in on the shit.

The utter flood of native title claims over anything and everything is in reaction to the NO referendum side rising in the polls. It is a retaliation and a show of strength to inform the majority population that we don’t matter and will never matter. The country is now under new ownership and management whether we let them enshrine it in the constitution or not.

The most hilarious thing I’ve heard in weeks.

‘ooh aye I was a bovver boy, oh yeah I was’

Breaking it down. ‘Part time’ and ‘bovver boy’.

Not only were the ‘bovver boys’ second-rate magoos* versions of Hando’s idiot mates in Romper Stomper, they were unemployed simpletons wandering about just swearing loudly in the hope of getting attention from someone, somewhere at some point.

Now I’m being asked to believe that a part time simpleton was actually asked to turn up here to this wide brown land and not only that, but said simpleton speaks from authority because it hands out cash to convicted frauds and reposts it hoping for a ponzi handout.

Seriously, laughing pretty hard here.

Joyce became CEO of Qantas on 28 November 2008, succeeding Geoff Dixon who had been in the role since March 2001.

Every major airline in the world has done that. Did Qantas book the unpaid fare as profit or did they leave it in a suspense account?

A large amount of these unpaid fares were bookings done with other airlines such as Qantas booking flights beyond their final destination. Has United or American repaid the fares to Qantas? it’s not as simple as you want to believe.

It’s not related to journeys beyond Qantas network and it’s nothing to do with credits not paid back to customers – those are separate things altogether. Check the ACCC site for details.

The Irish Short Arse got caught out Big Time. And so he had to go.

To have around $500 million south pacific pesos in the bank and only trying to give some credits back with a time limit outrageous. The ACCC should have been on that case ages ago. Talk about sleeping behind the wheel. The ACCC wouldn’t know where the wheel is. FFS.

I hope that the ACCC spank Quaintarse big time and fine them as much as they can. Then the Shareholders get the hump and boot out the Board and Chairperson.

Then start from scratch and have a proper Airline. Otherwise it is more of the same BS – ‘And I still call Australia home music crap’.

Quaintarse indeed – Alf Garnet got it right in 1970 –

JC> Selling a product that doesn’t exist because Qantas had already cancelled rge flights days before.

And you know this to be direct fraud and not an incredible screw up within internal operation? How so?

Recall, the airline had been grounded for ages and to think there would be no teething problems as they got back to operational level is Liars Party delusional. This was a operation that had never closed down before, for months and months. They lost key staff, and not recognizing the potential for confusion shows incredible hubris. Qantas isn’t as Kebab stand. It’s an incredibly complex logistical operation.

Thats quite simple breach of trust, selling a product that does not exist.

You know this because you’ve read it in Fairfax press?

It’s not related to journeys beyond Qantas network and it’s nothing to do with credits not paid back to customers – those are separate things altogether.

Of course it is and you have zero knowledge that it’s not. For instance, a Qantas ticket extends to NY etc. It’s coded as a Qantas flight even though the carrier would be American or United.

Check the ACCC site for details.

Oh yeah, that fount of endless knowledge.

Last time I looked we still had a working legal system with process for determining guilt or innocence. My 2 cents on Qantas is just an opinion, not a legal charge or court order. You seem confused about what this blog does and how the law works. There is a difference.

If you had any exposure to how revenue management works for a large airline of Qantas size you’d know that it doesn’t stop & the airline operation/survival depends on it completely. That and the rostering systems.

Lord, you’re a cretious loudmouth, Wodney.

When writing, font is going to be more proper for American English usage, while fount is more popular with British English authors. Since both are derived from the word fountain and mean essentially the same, you won’t be criticized if you prefer one over the other.

Last time I looked I saw that you linked to a set of ACCC allegations, while prior to that you were suggesting Q had committed fraud and the former CEO’s wings should be clipped. Excuse me if I suggested you ought to calm down a little and see what the other side has to say before acting like a one man judge and jury.

If you had any exposure to how revenue management works for a large airline of Qantas size you’d know that it doesn’t stop & the airline operation/survival depends on it completely.

Without further explanation, the above sounds like gibberish. Working in IT doesn’t make you an airline expert. Moreover it doesn’t make you an expert in crisis management, which Q went through when they were allowed to fly. Helping lay out software for a rural airline isn’t the same thing as doing it for Q.

That and the rostering systems.

Incredible insight. So revenue management includes staff rostering too does it? Unique.

Not only are you acting as judge and jury, you’re also supporting the politicization of business. If people/ customers believed they were diddled by Q, they can seek legal redress with costs. Siccing a state entity against a business is typical liars party behavior. Congratulations, you’re now a comrade.

A few weeks ago you were telling us you worked at BAC, Merrill Lynch and now you’re running the IT system for Cathay. Umm Okay.

Still, you’re not making any valid point to support the initial claims you made that Q and the CEO acted fraudulently. I’ve been saying that we need to be cautious before we throw around these accusations. You disagree.

And the data behind ACCC actions is recorded in multiple systems and shared with airports, govt, partners, security services etc.

WTF are you saying now? Who is doubting that these fares weren’t recorded? You really are the one embarrassing yourself now.

Let’s go back to first base.

You made the claim that Q and CEO acted fraudulently. Provide evidence for the assertion and not some nob ACCC website detailing the flights that were cancelled.

Go!

We retreated to a small village called Glifa for an overnight rethink. All of central Greece was flooded with very bad headlines So we spent several hours working out our options, and decided on bring our flight forward…back to Oz on Monday night.

Travelling back to Athens was weird, like something out of an “end of the world SF movie”. Very few cars on the main A1 super-highway, and police roadblocks for anything going the other direction – eg: outwards from Athens and northwards. Freeways empty. Cars going the other way were lined up, with police advising them and generally turning them around. But there was one constant – Mrs TE guessed we would have six tolls, we were up to 5 with 100kms to go. They varied from 90p through to seven euros.

We gave car #4 of our travels back to Mr Hertz, and found an Air BnB in a seaside area of Athens. Flying the excellent Qatar Air again home.
