Do you need to travel on a plane? If so which airline are you travelling with? Recently I travelled with Tiger Airways. Gosh was that an experience….normally I fly with Qantas, and love their service. But I have heard (online) that Flying With Qantas was out of the question for the last week or so.
People were left stranded in many airports across Australia as well as overseas. People slept on the floors of airports, on lounges or wherever they could! Many others tried to find other Airlines that they could fly with.

Flying With Qantas
Funny but when I was in Brisbane Airport a few weeks ago I didn’t actually see any Qantas Planes – not saying that there wasnt any, just that I didn’t actually see any. I saw a lot of other airline carriers…from Jetstar, Tiger to Virgin, to even Suns. Usually I fly with Qantas, Jetstar or Virgin. Never been with Tiger before!!
Virgin – Lots of other airlines, but no Qantas?
What do you prefer to fly with? If I had to choose I would say Qantas, Jetstar, and then Virgin. I wouldn’t consider any of the other airlines as a company that offer good service. But what will happen to Qantas if they are no longer able to fly? What will happen to all of the workers that work with Qantas?
Flying with Tiger?
Here is a the information that I have come across while I was searching about Qantas…
Qantas was grounded on Saturday (last weekend) and left nearly 70,000 passengers stranded in 22 countries. My understanding is that the government stepped in, and has forced Qantas to fly again. That means that the employees of Qantas wont be locked out of their place of employment, people will be able to fly with Qantas and the tourist industry wont suffer!
But is it over?
So the Qantas flights are now back in the air, but what next? There still is a feeling of unease in the air. There is another company that is ready to launch called “Air Australia” – will they over take Qantas? Will that mean people who are working for Qantas will lose their job? What about the service? Will Air Australia be a service that is like “Tiger Airlines”???
I did a vlog on a review about flying with Tiger…
I would love to see Qantas staying in the air, because I believe that we need to support people in the work force. I also like the image of Qantas – they represent Australia.
What are your thoughts about Flying With Qantas?
