I just wanted to let you know that my husband and I arrived in Australia on our first flight attempt and are in quarantine in Perth. We were fortunate to score a two room corner suite on the top floor overlooking the river. My husband is a professional artist and has lovely views to paint while I continue to work online.
It was touch and go at the Dallas airport check-in. Our Covid test results from three days earlier had not arrived and we raced to a pathology lab near the airport. We paid $500 for a rabid turnaround PCR test. The results arrived 10 minutes before check-in closed. The Qatar Airways airline service staff were amazingly supportive and raced us through security to get to the gate on time. We flew economy class.
