Flight to Nowhere

Read about this flight in the paper this morning.

It takes off from Sydney and lands in.... Sydney.

It's a flight to nowhere, for those who have missed flying.

The tickets ranged in price from £445 to over £2000...

The flight apparently sold out in record time. A pointless flight, which will burn fuel and put more emissions into the atmosphere for the benefit of people with money to burn.

Mentioned it today when we discussed the realities of life on Level 1 and Level 4.

The seven-hour scenic flight will perform a giant loop taking in Queensland and the Gold Coast, New South Wales and the country's remote outback heartlands.
From above, keen fliers should be able to spot famous Aussie attractions including Sydney Harbour and the Great Barrier Reef. The jet will do a low flyover over certain landmarks, including Uluru and Bondi Beach.
Special onboard entertainment is promised too, including a surprise celebrity host.
The journey will take place on a Qantas Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, usually reserved for intercontinental journeys across continents. Right now, there are very few flights operating to and from Australia due to travel restrictions and Qantas international fleet has been grounded.
