Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

With Qantas retiring all of its 747s, and investing in long range 787s, I wonder if there are any end-points that could support non-stop flights to/from Adelaide. Do we have enough migrants, business connections and tourists (in and out) from concentrated places to operate regular flights direct to...

Agreed. Very few people like stopovers in their travel. I want a direct flight to my destination, or only one stop if possible. I also don't particularly like dom-intl transfers in Sydney, but not sure where else I have tried it for comparison. Tourists in particular don't mind stopovers. It breaks...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

Emirates chose to schedule their daily flight AT THE SAME TIME as Qatar. No wonder they are pulling out, there was essentially nothing to differentiate the two flights. The two international airlines flying from the Middle East to Adelaide couldn't coordinate and make one flight at a different time...

I'm keen to see how this one progresses. I'm sure it'll be infinitely more interesting than Adelaidean next door.
Also better than any other student building in the neighbourhood.

A quick one edited on my phone.
Wait 'til the two student towers will be completed. The ones on either side of Realm and Adelaidean. Then your silhouette will be even better.

From today. Wow, that swimming pool is not going to get too much sun for 6-8 months of the year. 😮 Perhaps they should've had pools on the east and west side too just in case or sunbathing on the roof. I doubt there are many hotels worldwide in major cities with skyscrapers that have perfect swimmi...

Well, I hope you have made donations to InDaily or another news outlet in Adelaide, because if the Advertiser fails, InDaily doesn't have the reach to reasonably hold the government to account.
