Move over, Beatles. The Magical Mystery Tour has some competition: Qantas.
And it’s bottoms up — but not necessarily in a fun way — for foreigners arriving in China.
Those are some of today’s travel headlines I thought you, too, may find interesting.
Qantas Offering Flights to Mystery Destinations
Now this would make a great SkyMiles Experience. (Hint, hint, Delta!)
Qantas is selling day trips to destinations that remain a secret until the trip is underway.
In a press release, the airline says:
The limited mystery flight experiences will depart from Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne to a destination within approximately two hours. As part of creating a unique on-board experience the flights will include some low-level scenic flybys of key landmarks en route (subject to weather conditions and air traffic control).
Experiences on the ground could include anything from a winemaking course in a premier Australian wine region to a gourmet lunch with musical entertainment on the shores of one of Australia’s tropical island wonders.
Customers will be provided with clues to ensure it is an appropriate outing for their areas of interest and to assist with whether to pack a snorkel or sneakers in their carry-on baggage.
Costs are $737 per passenger for economy and $1,579 for business class. Prices are all-inclusive.
What do you think about this idea? Sound kinda fun?
China: Anal Swabs Required for Foreign Tourists
Well, this will wake you up after a long flight.
China is requiring foreign tourists to take a COVID-19 test upon arrival. Think that brain-stinging nasal swab was unpleasant? You’ll surely crack (heh heh) from the new method.
