I was treated to my first flight on one of QANTAS' relatively new DH Canada's Q400 Bombardiers last Wednesday, a very rare visitor to Bundaberg (we've still got the old Dash 8s) and a sure sign that the QANTAS time-table had fallen apart for the day. I had arranged to fly up to Townsville early for once so I could get a decent night's sleep before my early start on Thursday morning. My flight to Brisbane was about 3/4 hour late although there was still plenty of time to make my connection up to Townsville. More than enough in fact because the Townsville flight was also late, an hour and a quarter late in fact. So I got to Townsville about 10 minutes before I normally arrive. So much for an early night.
