    Speaking of evil empire, I needed to change the days of a flight with Qantas yesterday, the flight was a local one I paid $69 for, to make the change was going to cost $200, for the two of us it is cheaper to drive the car, or just buy another ticket, Qantas have lost a long time family of frequent flyers now, a little flexibility would have kept us spending for many more years with Qantas.
    I am guessing Qantas are so big they won't miss my money, I hope Virgin Australia and international will appreciate it from now on.
