Oh, come on! The 'plane ticket prices to get Anne from Perth to the land 
where birds wear their nostrils on the tips of their beaks* is often 
_less_ than it costs to get her to the East Coast. The best Qantas 
Red-E-Deal to Auckland is $284 each way, to Brisbane, Sydney or 
Melbourne is $303 each way. Nuh? It would be _cheaper_ to book a flight 
to Auckland and then fail to make your connection at Sydney. <thwack!>

Do your research _before_ picking indefensible positions, _puhlease_!

Cheers; Leon
