Interesting/what a pain in the arse. I'd have thought New Cal + Fiji + Tonga + Vanuatu (and maybe even further out Tahiti et al) would be additions to the trans-tasman bubble. Who the fudge wants to go to NZ in winter?!?! (skiiers, you don't count!! :)).

We are overdue for a trip to a Singapore (already cancelled one and one to Thailand and one to Margaret River) one Singapore passport in my household and one with Australian and Canadian. Not sure how this will work but time to visit the in-laws again!

And... another EK day... the 3rd and 4th 77Ws have just taken off for DXB.
And... there are another three EK 77Ws already on the way to MEL from DXB.
And... the second SQ freighter for the day on its way from SYD then on to AKL just after midnight.

A6-ECU was the Expo 2020 aircraft.
Emirates has put Expo 2020 decals on 40 of their aircraft. 20 on their A380s and 20 on their triple 7s.

MEL has seen orange and blue ones recently. Not sure about a green one though.
