It's a pseudo-long weekend (take Monday off from work and you've got a 4 day break including Cup Day), so Gen-Y daughter and partner head off to Hong Kong to attend a friend's wedding. As, apparently, you do. Lo and behold, Qantas then ground their aircraft. I send this news by text to daughter, and receive the following respose:
"Yea - extended stay in HK! .....We r having a great time so we can stay a while at travel insurance expense".
