Grant’s still recovering from the Episode 100 party but needs to get better quickly if the threatened Airplane Geeks “police action” goes ahead. Meanwhile, some big news this week:

    their Frequent Flyer Program while most of the aviation profit was made in the first half of the year
  • Qantas A380 diverts to Noumea for first time (due to bad weather)
