      You're… quoting the aviation industry… for saying "it's safe to fly"… You do realise what is wrong with that, correct? LOL

      That's like Colonel Sanders saying "Fried chicken is good for you".

      Rolls on floor laughing

      •  

        Lol coming from the guy who quotes ‘executive business traveller’ 🙄

        Yeah better only quote government agencies cause they are the ones with real facts

        •  

          Typical, didn't even understand the difference between quoting from a source reporting a story and quoting from a source that is trying to push an agenda.

        •  

          Generally speaking in advanced democratic nations governments have a FAR FAR better grasp of facts, data, stats on health and numeorous other matters than anyone else. If you don't understand that elementary fact then it's little wonder your post as you do.

          •  

            @Possumbly: "elementary fact"? "numeorous other matters than anyone else" ..lol wake up, ive worked in government departments most my life. Also i think you may need to proof read your posts.

              @UberIsCool:

              ive worked in government departments most my life.

              Well that explains it. Not sure if you're trying to brag about this but it means nothing to me.

              •  

                @Ghost47: Wow i love how you are answering your other account.

                "Well that explains it. " So now you have no faith in government departments or employees after using them as multiple references ? way to shoot yourself in the foot

                  So now you have no faith in government departments or employees after using them as multiple references ? way to shoot yourself in the foot

                  Well, I did say this earlier:

                  Right, so just because restrictions are eased that must mean that they are correct and that the government is some infallible entity that never makes mistakes, and we should blindly follow and extrapolate their guidelines to everything else.

                  I've never had faith in government departments. I've seen and heard people complain about how slow Centrelink is (this was before coronavirus). I've seen how the government handled NBN. There have been instances of fraud and corruption in the Victorian public sector.

                  It doesn't surprise me when I say you work for government, when I present scientific facts and you ignore them to push your own agenda. I'm sure a lack of integrity is rife within government (as it is in general in this country actually).

                  • +1 vote

                    @Ghost47: You're starting to sound like him unfortunately Ghost47. Centrelink is dogged by lack of resources, ridiculously onerous regulation, senior management too closely aligned to big G Govt - hence robodebt - and the constantly changing circumstances of its clients. The NBN was administered under a different framework and despite our so-called expertise we had sfa experience in undertaking such a large and challenging project. We - well politicians - generally talk-up our capacity and capability but the reality is that we are under-achievers broadly speaking due to lack of decent leadership. Without natural resources this country would be a basket case. Donald Horne was right when he wrote of the "lucky country" decades ago.

                    Yes corruption, nepotism, incompetence…. all exist in public services but in the main the workers are honest, dedicated, and efficient within their capacity. Accusations of lack of integrity are ignorant nonsense, unfortunately typical of sweeping statements we see a lot of on this website.

                    •  

                      @Possumbly: Yeah, fair call. I was probably too harsh, and I'm sure that there are good public servants out there who do things right.

                        @Ghost47: Yes I could see you were frustrated and annoyed by his continual denial of the obvious. You can lead them to water…… By now even primary school kids would be able to explain why a private car trip by a responsible person would be less risky than flying under current conditions.

                    •  

                      @Possumbly: that is the biggest false statement i have ever seen posted on this site.

                      even the suggestion that the majority of government agencies currently have any integrity is a furphy.

                      •  

                        @petry: Really? Which one, and why is it a "false statement"? Which govt agencies have "no integrity" and why? What experience and knowledge do you have of govt agency operations? Have you ever complained to an ombudsman about their integrity and if not why not? Can you provide any links to credible commentary or examples which show an endemic lack of integrity?

                        I can excuse off-the-cuff skepticism but when childish cynicism and blind ignorance are combined the result is never good - and your last sentence is a classic example of that. As puerile, unforgivable and obviously witless as it is in a supposedly educated society I still wouldn't rate it as the worst bit of ignorance I've seen on Ozbargain though.

                        •  

                          @Possumbly: I see you response is to sledge and abuse.

                          There is no ombudsman in this country operating with any integrity, which is why all governement agency's NOW have such low standards.

                          Your extraoplation of government agencies possessing integrity is solely based on your personal opinion and nothing else.

                          why don't you provide some evidence of your blatantly rediculous assertions?

                          •  

                            @petry: Your comment got the response it deserved. I see you have no answers, no examples, and no evidence for what are clearly ignorant, hyperbolic, and childish broad-brush claims. You're at it again with your patently ridiculous comments about ombudsman offices, something else you clearly know nothing about.

                            I don't need to provide evidence, Hitchens' razor applies since it was you who made unsupported and outlandish claims. Nevertheless it should be obvious even to people with little knowledge and experience that if things were as you claim then the hoi poloi, the media, and government opposition would be in a constant state of public outrage (and rightly so). I'll make it as clear as I can for you. The notion that no govt agency and no employee in public service - including ombudsman office workers - has any integrity is, like many conspiracy theories, a perverse figment of an over-vivid imagination.

                            •  

                              @Possumbly: in other words your personal opinion based on nothing should be taken seriously because you abuse anyone who actually knows differently.

                              and rewriting what i wrote incorrectly says everything about your fallacious assertions.

                              since our current government effectively bought electoral votes using taxpayer monies in marginal seats the notion that such honest politicians would appoint honest independent Ombudsman who would cause them trouble is laughable.

                              not as funny as you misusing the term Hitchens' razor since you actually made the fake claim.

                              •  

                                @petry: Your argument technique is classic, typical of someone grasping at straws. My opinion is, as I said, based on knowledge, experience in working with public servants from a variety of agencies, basic awareness, and simple adult deduction. Your interpretation ("in other words") is as wildly inaccurate as your ludicrous claims regarding the integrity of others.

                                I'll challenge you again - where are your examples of endemic dishonesty? Where is the credible commentary which led you to such a perverse conclusion? You claim to "actually know differently" - something 99.9% of the populace apparently doesn't - so let's see your proof so we can further judge your own integrity.

                                •  

                                  @Possumbly: mate you love to go on - you made the first sweeping false statement - when you were asked to back it up you denied saying it. Suggest you read what you wrote originally. Till then you make up what you like because you are going to anyway

                                  •  

                                    @petry: I can't recall writing anything here and then denying it. Feel free to enlighten me.

                                    The only general statement I've made is that most govt agencies and those who work within them have integrity (in their work). This is obvious to all but the ignorant. As I've said already, if that wasn't the case then society would be in uproar. I see you've ignored the challenge once again. That suggests you have nothing to back up your wild claims eh?

                                    You do understand the difference between arguably corrupt and certainly compromised politicians - conservative in the case you quote (there are plenty more examples of similar behaviour from the Turnbull and Smirk-Mo governments) - and those tasked with implementing and administering their policies presumably? Your reference to the sports grants rorts suggests otherwise. Does that mean that all politiians are corrupt/compromised? Not in an adult world. Does the fact that the ethics and honesty of a very small number of public servants are questionable mean that all govt agencies and staff are without integrity. Again, not in an adult world.

                                        @petry: Really? Can you be more specific? So far you've failed to provide any useful the evidence to justify your opinion regarding the integrity of hundreds of thousands of decent hard-working Australians despite a couple of invitations to do so. While that shouldn't be difficult it's considerably harder than pointing out where I wrote something on this deal then later denied it. That should be a very easy task. Or did you simply make that up as well?

                                            you made the first sweeping false statement - when you were asked to back it up you denied saying it.

                                            Found where I denied saying something yet or can we take it that your imagination was overactive at the time you typed that out?

                                              •  

                                                @petry: I suggest you have your comprehension skills tested asap.
                                                I didn't claim anything of the sort, nor would I make ludicrous comments like:

                                                "paid to look the other way"
                                                and
                                                "possess the highest levels of integrity known to any god".

                                                Add that to your growing list of juvenile inventions. Still searching for that denial? Can't be that hard to find surely?

                                                I've used the TIO and had an excellent outcome. So much so that the office of Telstra's technical mgr in Melb told me to ring them directly if I should have further problems. Apparently those "hundreds of thousands of ombudsman workers who were paid to look the other way" were all on leave and some newby (who didn't leave his/her integrity behind the door) got the wheels rolling.

            •  

              @UberIsCool: You worked in the public service ? So what? As far as non-sequiturs go that's up there with Jackie Lambie's comment that because she was a soldier she knows all about national security. It's obvious you didn't know or learn much about the workings of the service and what the role of departments and related govt organisations is, or why they exist.

              I worked with plenty of highly qualified and skilled public servants who, like you, knew little about operations outside their area of speciality. Hospitals and other health organisations - both public and private - are required by regulation to keep records and make those records available to govt as required. Elementary fact. Treasury possesses economic data unavailable to other organisations, ditto defence, education, social security, science, etc etc….In fact in pretty much every policy area government holds the key to information and data. That doesn't mean that govt is the best or sole repository of wisdom - hence the reason experts are consulted for advice, as they have been during this emergency.

              •  

                @Possumbly: Quite the opposite. Also, nice little story about Jackie, serves absolutely no purpose to this discussion but still entertaining.

                Cya.

                  @UberIsCool: What is? Your knowledge of the PS? Lol, your comments betray your ignorance of even the fundamentals of "government" and its bureaucracies.

                  Phone a friend if you need an explanation of the Lambie analogy, you won't find the answer in the urban dictionary this time.

        To be honest, I think it's just luck.

        I loaded the page at 0655, pre-filled all the fields including the captcha. Submitted at 0659 and got the allocation exhausted popup but it didn't reset the form fields. I unticked the agree to terms and conditions box and reticked it and it seems to 'trick' the page into thinking I hadn't submitted it yet, so I clicked submit and got the same allocation exhausted popup. Repeated this in succession until I got the message in my above comment. Tried again literally five seconds after that and got the form error message.

        •  

          So was the one that worked actually at 7:00 exactly? Or a little after?

          •  

            @Blatros: Well I don't think it really matters whether it was exactly 0700 because the time is probably based on the server that runs the form and you can't ever say for sure that its the exact same time that you're looking at. My clock read 0700 but I don't know how many seconds.

    A note for Brisbane folks, you will need to fly down to Sydney by the looks of things. Qatar were due to start flying to Brisbane in late March, but I am assuming that due to the virus they scrapped that. This code excludes codeshare so you would have to depart from Sydney.

    Went 04:59:45 this morning I got the "Thank you for submitting your details. A limited number of promo codes will be distributed daily; we will send you an email within 48 hours once your request has been processed." so I would say they are opening it slightly early.

    When I clicked at 04:59:30 it said that the codes were exhausted.
    If I re-enter my details now it says that "You have submitted your details already."

    I will be stoked if the code turns up and Australia re-opens the boarders by December :)

      So you submitted the form successfully again 15 seconds after the first attempt? How did you enter details so quickly? Or did you try pressing submit again? Submit button appears and disappears for me

      •  

        I unchecked & re-checked the "terms and conditions" and pressed submit. I was just lucky that it declined quickly the first time because its been taking ages.

    This kinda teasing us on a daily base. Wasting time and efforts

    No luck either. Had 3 tabs of forms ready to fire at 7am.

  •  

    Same no luck. Smart marketing which is teasing me every morning.

  •  

    Finally got my promo code after a little more than 48hrs. I was worried that I typed my email wrong. When I tried to resubmit it said I had already submitted my details. I will try for multicity booking. Fingers crossed that we can travel by Dec. If not I might get to rebook due to involuntary cancellation.

    •  

      I'm in the same boat, awaiting email and concerned I entered my details wrongly. I'm also getting the already submitted details dialogue so hopefully it's just taking some time! (to be fair I'm only 24hrs since submitting)

      Did you get blue box? I got my blue box this morning hoping it comes through :)

  •  

    Got the blue box, fingers crossed

    •  

      Congrats, when did you hit the submit button?

      •  

        6:59 just like most of the people from below. It's a luck draw.

  •  

    No dice :(

  •  

    Got the blue thank you. Fingers crossed I get the email.

  •  

    I got a success today. Hit the button at 6:59:55

  •  

    Not my week it seems :( Partner (medical) and I have been trying every day at 7am on the dot.. we've gotten very familiar with the red box and cross. My work also announced redundancies too so complimentary tickets would have been amazing. Any tips from people lucky enough to get through?

      My husband and I also tried yesterday morning with his details. I was away from home so used my mobile and he used his laptop. Magically we both got through, so it’s not impossible! I’m sure we will only receive one code as we have used the same details, because we didn’t expect it to work for both of us. We both started clicking submit right before 7 (for me it was around 6.59.30). It first said quota reached (because it’s not 7 yet), and then I unticked the agree to terms box and ticked again and it allowed me to submit again, and it worked the second time. I had it pre-filled on a few mobile browsers, but just stuck to one (Firefox) as the response was instant and there’s no time to do this on a separate browser. Best of luck!

        Thanks for the tips :) I didn't get a code in the end, but glad to hear nice people like yourself did. Enjoy the holiday!

  •  

    I submitted multiple times at 6.59 and 7.00 kept getting error 'too many submissions, try again' and then 'allocation exhausted'

    Disappointing

  •  

    Same no luck. I think this promotion compain teasing me every morning.

  •  

    Must have increased the quota, or people just confirming more.

    I hit it right on 6:59:59. Difference between today and last few days is that.. today I used my phone. (So my Optus NBN must be dud).

    Here's a pic of the highly sought after blue box; I can feel the pain for those of you who have yet to see it! Fingers crossed to borders reopening..

      It's just random. I use my phone on 4g and NBN at the same time. No luck so far.

    Got the blue box today too after a few days of trying! Submitted at 7:00:03

    Congrats to all who got the blue box. If you're not sure if you got it right just resubmit anytime and it will tell you that you already submitted your details. It may take more than 48hrs for your code to arrive so don't despair. I have set up a forum topic to discuss our bookings and how get get around the travel restriction period.

    Congrats to all those that have been lucky enough to get a code!

    I've missed out the past few days of trying despite having 2x laptops and 1x PC up and running at the time. The first 2 days I was out on jobs from 6AM (I work as a Paramedic) which is slightly annoying. I'm hoping I'm more successful over the next 2 days!

    Do the free/complimentary tickets include any return flight on the Qatar network?
