Virgin eyes a good route

By Ari 4 February 2008 46

After two-and-a-half years the previously coy Virgin has decided to resume its Canberra-Sydney service once again.

It’s always good to see a monopoly busted – let’s hope it’s sustainable.

What’s Your opinion?

We just grab hire cars for Sydney trips. Just as quick when going to North Sydney, and you can leave to come home as soon as you want.

Growling Ferret, Not yet as far as I know. But one would think they would have to refund your money if the flight was cancelled.

I hope Virgin does well. Canberra needs the competition, and Qantas needs a good kick up the proverbial. It was said that Virgin’s earlier efforts in the Canberra suffered because they didn’t have a lounge. Well, if you like sitting around in a dirty, overcrowded lounge with some of the surliest people ever to work in customer service, good luck to you. You can continue the fun squeezed into a Dash 8 or q400. Anyone who has flown on an Embraer jet will probably vouch for the fact they are much nicer and more comfortable planes. And I’m prepared to sacrifice my Qantas in-flight ‘snack’ for the short trip up the road.

I prefer to greyhound…. $15-30 from jollimont to central – can’t beat it!

LOL @ JU-52. I reckon they restore the concorde for that route. 2 mins flying time, 2 hours at the airport.

My mind harks back to my yoof: Biggles with a Sopwith Camel, on many of his adventures he had a passenger riding on the wing
