No thank you Qantas , if you are going to poach more of JAL's income because people
like me won't use your company I will only use ANA , sorry JAL but this would be a big mistake for you .
I flew a return flight to Australia with Qantas ONCE , never again . Mechanically they might have a good reputation as a safe Airline , but inside the aircraft it is rubbish , staff attitude wise . I only use JAL or ANA when I have to return from leaving one of my Corporate aircraft in MEL due to another crew having to take the aircraft on to it's next leg due to me being out of hours . The difference between Qantas and JAL/ANA is like night night and day . I know Australian patriots will support Qantas , and I wish them good luck and respect their loyalty to their country , but I would rather swim back than use Qantas again !! Even Virgin domestic leaves them in their wake .

I think it is appalling that Mr. Morrison went to Hawaii whilst his country was suffering huge losses , even one former Prime Minister Mr Abbot was on the front line assisting , whilst I do not like him I have great respect for his efforts and compassion whilst the incumbent one
was absent . A reliable military serving source told me he even took a C130 to Hawaii and the mainland US for drinks . That aircraft could have been used to carry supplies , people and equipment to areas in dire need , I think that is even worse ! Why cannot the
" Leader " of Australia take a Qantas flight or even Australia's Air Force One equivalent ,
after all it was a " Family " holiday and I agree with @concerned citizen . even our own Prime Minister and the Emperor Emeritus showed up at the disasters that befell our country . I think he should resign also but that would be a further embarrassment to the good people of Australia . What has it been ? 6 Prime Ministers in in almost as many years ? Whilst Abe might not be perfect he is consistent , and the people have faith in him .

@Peeping_Tom: well spoken ! Clearly none of these so called " experts " have never heard of the
Naginata and how well the women used them while the warriors were away during their campaigns !
Half the Middle School girls near us are in a club practising the use of the Naginata and I wouldn't mess with them either !!

Big Yen : Sorry but the " Departure Tax " in Oz even if it is called a different name is very high compared to other countries. One thousand yen is a bargain , and the utilization charge just keeps the Terminals better than anywhere else in the world , we have the best system in the world and it's not cheap to run . Oh , and the aircraft is taxying and so the push cart had done it's job at the terminal , that's why it is not in the photo .

I am fortunate , there is a very small shrine 4 doors down from where I live , it is very modest , but still very beautiful , it has everything I need except the large crowds . I go there almost every day , it is very peaceful and fulfilling . wishing you a good year of the Boar . Sincerely , Daiki desu .

Happy birthday to a great man and our Emperor . He thoroughly earned his retirement and now can have a
well earned rest . We all looked up to him as our world Ambassador , and I don't think there is a Royal anywhere in the world that has so much respect . I wish him a good crossing into the new year and a long life , enjoying quality time with Empress Michiko .

Kozuki : We have had a driverless train to Odaiba for over 5 years now , Japanese technology is just making it better with the next gerneration of trains . Obviously some of you who critisize everything Japanese , have either not been here or just like to bitch !! I seldom comment because half of the comments I read are mindless , and to reply to such idiots is a waste of my time , and yes , I know it runs on rubber tires . How many Shinkansens do you have ? Over 50 years without incident .

Try Australia , they are simply arrogant stand over merchants who , if you do not comply , they call their Federal Police co-horts to intimidate you even further , and if you still fail to " give in " , they will deny you entry , OR jail you for a day or two , missing all your connecting flights , or back out on the next Jet home . Sydney is the worst one of them , I know from personal experience how much of a stand over group they are !! They do this to their own also ( Aussie passport holders ) so no-one is immune from these gestapo like staff .

Daikisan : I think the Rugby World Cup will be the acid test , then the government will realise there is not enough accommodation for the Olympics ! I think it will be a nightmare . I'll stay for the rugby but go visit another country until the Olympics has finished . Yes , we need tourism but no-one has thought this through , I see even catering will run short . Good luck Tokyo !!
