This week, Australia’s so-called Golden Triangle has been reassembled, with passengers now allowed to travel freely between Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane without isolation.

On this week’s episode of the Australian Aviation Podcast, Phil, Adam and Boo chat about the scramble to reclaim market share as Virgin and Qantas wake from hibernation.

The team also discusses the role of unions in 2020, Qantas’ plans to outsource 2,000 roles and the last of the government-supplemented repatriations.

Finally, Phil and Boo wonder if Adam has finally turned into an aviation nerd? Is he now a Flightradar guru who will never find love?
