    Europe 21/22 Planning

    How would Abu Dhabi and Dubai pose more risk than landing in say LA. Don't they both have flights coming in from everywhere? At LA you get to spend about an hour waiting for luggage in the baggage hall with flights from anywhere.

    USA 21/22 Planning

    Marz, if it is difficult to get a religous exemption then fair enough. AFAIK in Australia, where vaccination has been mandatory for given occupation, there has not been any exemption on religous grounds. Any exemption here would be extensively rorted.

    Europe 21/22 Planning

    I love it - AZ under 40, thrill seeker. I got the AZ at 50. I would be willing to go through the middle east if you aren't required to get a -ve test at the destination (or if I get could get a 3rd Astra Zucchini before going).

    Europe 21/22 Planning

    Same Same plan at this stage - Austria in March. Heinz, the irony is that if the March trip happens you will need to thank Gladys for that too. No way was this summer a goer for intl travel without the NSW outbreak

    and you are exempt if you cite religous reasons. Worthless. They hoped people would just read the headline.

    Can we please introduce the "new world order" tomorrow? FFS this stuff won't be around for long. Its pragmatic, HQ is not.

    Europe 21/22 Planning

    Anyone banking on flying through the middle east and then on to Geneva/Munich/Geneva/Milan ? I'm keen to get to the mountains the fast way, not via the UK.

    Japan 2022 Planning

    While the road will be bumpy, some important changes will come into place that will keep the rollout ticking along until we really run into an anti-VAX barrier which will be beyond 80%. 1. While it's a great vaccine (and I've had my two shots with it) we will soon no longer have to worry about...

    Europe 21/22 Planning

    I'm fine with that. Another year later it will be the same thing-still sharing a plane with lots of other people exposed to their stuff, so I don't really see the difference between getting on with it now. It will be two years since I've skied and as a 50 year old with a higher appetite for risk...

    Europe 21/22 Planning

    IMHO the short version to a more complex answer is yes-I think the international borders will open. I also think that ScoMo's view will be that double VAX people should be able to avoid hotel quarantine but home quarantine is likely to be a given and there could also be a requirement to give a...

    What's the talk so far in regards to Covid operations restrictions - will there be any?

    Europe 21/22 Planning

    I'm planning on Anna's current stupid talk caving pretty quickly. The thought of Viccos and NSW being kept out of QLD in summer holidays when they are 80% vaccinated appears ridiculous. If they can come to QLD without HQ, I just can't see how you HQ double vaxxed people from low risk countries...

    Fellow QLD'er. I'm wore worried about Anna.

    Europe 21/22 Planning

    The risk of one's own country doing something like refusing entry to its citizens due to Covid probably rates low on the risk scale in Europe. Meanwhile in Australia, how would an insurance company deal with the fact that nothing is out outside scope to keep us safe.

    Europe 21/22 Planning

    That is definitely food for thought. The flipside to the health equation is crowds. The pent-up demand in the UK, France and Europe in general is huge. France and Italy didn't even open last year. It's going to be bananas this season with everyone being able to play again (except maybe us).

    USA 21/22 Planning

    Thanks Marz, not so concerned about Taos as its a long way from any major population centre but my experience at most big North American resorts is that powder days have become an increasingly chaotic frenzy. I agree with you about the pent up demand and that is another reason why said benefit...

    USA 21/22 Planning

    Marz, flying from Australia, I now have some trepidation about the US now with the whole Ikon and Epic thing. I get that they facilitate a cheaper lift pass but frankly the existence of these passes and the subsequent lift in skier density is a significant factor (at least in my mind, if not in...

    Europe 21/22 Planning

    When I booked that seat earlier this year I didn't think it was very ambitious. Then Scomo started his March drivel about "keeping the borders closed to protect Australians" to appeal to the redneck masses and I straightaway realised I was in trouble. January still feels so far away, Europe...
