What happened last week?
Significantly, Virgin Australia announced 'light' - basic economy fares to match its joint venture partner Delta's similar catagory of fare. I think this is a retrograde step for Virgin Australia, and will lead to a great deal of abuse heaped on Virgin Australia counter and phone staff bu travellers who have not read the fine print on their ticket conditions.
Traveller health also took centre stage with the development of a new Coronavirus in Wuhan, China. Up until the quarantine by the Chinese government of this city and others, Sydney airport, the landing point for flights from Wuhan instituted health advice and checks to all who arrived on the Wuhan flights. This story is still developing.
