Qantas will be making it compulsory for International Travelers leaving/visiting Oz to be vaccinated against Covid-19 before being allowed on the plane. Would this change your mind about travelling on Qantas?
Closed

New terms & conditions are to be implemented across Qantas for international travelers, stated Qantas CEO, Alan Joyce on Channel 9's A Current Affairs program, with proof of covid-19 vaccination being required, once its available.

"We will ask people to have a vaccination before they can get on the aircraft,” Joyce said. He doesn't discount the same for domestic travel but said that "we will have to see what will happen with Covid-19."

Provided the vaccination was proven to work, & was safe, plus did not have any negatives associated with it, I would see this as a plus by Qantas. I have no doubt other airlines would follow suit if profits were up as a result of Qantas implementing this rule.

If you flew with Qantas before/consider flying with them in the future, would a compulsory covid-19 vaccination rule by the airline, encourage or discourage you to fly with Qantas?

Not often that I agree with Alan Joyce, but I think that he’s right this time.

Probably not and not thinking of going overseas anyway. I think it would be a bit much to insist on this for domestic travel though plus we don't know whether any of these vaccines are going to work.

I cannot see a problem. If you are anti vaxer then what gives you the right to jeopardise other lives and If you are then don't travel with others - stay away from everyone. Simple solution.
Joyce was reasonable saying it is a wait and see situation. It certainly would not discourage me from flying as I will have the vaccine when it is proven safe and effective.

Joyce has the right to say, "NO Jab No Flight' He is boss.

I don`t have any issues with this.Alan Joyce said yesterday on the tv news that in order to take an overseas plane trip you must have proof that you have had the virus vaccine.I remember many years ago having to have a vaccine to fly to some Asian Countries

I don't see it as a problem and would prefer this.
I'd say all will do it eventually or it will be a condition of entry to a destination.

Well as a columnist wrote in today's paper
We used to smoke in planes
I say get over it If you want to travel you'll just have to put up with it Besides what's the bet you won't enter many countries without proof of being jabbed anyway
