Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

As per the approved Major Development Plan for this project, the hotel is located between the 25 and 30 Australian Noise Exposure Forecast contours for the Airport, which means the development is "conditionally acceptable" in accordance with Australian Standard AS2021-2015. This essentially means ac...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

I don't know how long the Adelaide Airport has had the upgraded bathrooms, but they are fantastic. They have ditched the disgusting horrible Dyson Airblades for an easy to use under the mirror soap, water and drying system. It is simply fantastic. WD to Adelaide Airport. I am a very happy man. Sinc...

Re: Beer Garden

I hope this is just another example of poor journalism from the Murdoch press, or have people on the eastern seaboard started seeing us on the same league as Wagga Wagga, Launceston and Mackay? I'd say both. But I wouldn't read too much into it... I was reading a News.com.au article this morning ab...

Y'all could also refer to the major development plan for this project, currently available on the Adelaide Airport website...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

Obviously during the curfew. Can someone explain how the curfew actually works? On what grounds can planes land/take off during the curfew? Have planes (esp international planes) ever had to land at interstate airports as they were not allowed to land here during the curfew hours? Certain types of ...

Re: Deregulation of Shop Trading Hours

From a Canberra perspective... there are Coles and Woolies (and Aldi) at one end, and the small IGA, Spar or other random brand at the local shops at the other end, but not much else in between. There's no real Foodland-type equivalent, apart from some larger IGAs and a handful of Supabarns (many of...

Wasn't that already the case anyway that three flights each week would be serviced by the Dreamliner all year round?
No, the original announcement was Dreamliner only during this summer until 25 March 2018.

Re: Beer Garden

Anyone remember when Johnny Rockets came to Adelaide? Sure do. Circa 1998? I had a friend who worked there. Don't think it lasted too long, did it? I also remember around the same time there was bar nearby that offered you to toss a coin when bought a round of drinks and if you called heads/tails c...

Re: Beer Garden

The maths isn’t ‘interesting’ - it’s entirely unremarkable. It’s just basic maths. Parts of the ‘no’ brigade tried to push for referendum rules, where a majority in a majority of states was needed to change the law - every state voted yes. Parts of the ‘no’ brigade were looking to sink it by encour...

Re: Beer Garden

So 61.6% of Aussies are selfish, hypocritical, morons and/or twats? 100% of states and territories voted yes. 89% of electorates voted yes. That's some interesting maths you have going on there, Matt (and everyone else who is celebrating an "overwhelming majority"). So, 61.6% becomes 89% or 100%, d...

Re: Beer Garden

If someone opts to tick the 'no' box and go to the trouble of sticking it in the post, it's hard to conclude that their view is anything but intolerant of my relationship. These people can throw in as many red herrings or excuses as they like - the crux of it is, that's the *one* question they've b...

Re: Beer Garden

This is a question of whether or not to allow same sex couples the right to marry. That’s the question on the ballot, that’s the “debate” we’ve endured for the last few weeks, months, years. Neither the “yes” camp, nor the “no” camp are advocating for the legal right to marry to be removed altogeth...

Re: Beer Garden

"Should the law be changed to allow same-sex couples to marry?" Fairly straightforward. I'd say simplistic. It's entirely possible to vote no because you believe no one should have the legal right to marry. That would also result in equal legal rights. In fact, it's exactly what Rev has been advoca...

Re: Beer Garden

I have no interest in 'engaging' or 'debating' (either constructively or otherwise) with anyone who believes I should be entitled to less rights than them by virtue of who I love. I'm assuming you mean that there are people on this forum who believe as much. In which case, please quote the exact te...

Re: Beer Garden

Let me start with I support gay marriage. But I like to understand the opposite side of any argument. I actually haven't heard this arguement said but I can assume the people that are against gay marriage are against it because they find it obscene. ... ... ... There is a line somewhere for obscene...
