in-flight chatter

Mr R.H. COOK: […] For many people, opportunities in the mining industry are elusive. Those opportunities are eluding them because there are lower-hanging fruit for the mining industry because the fly in, fly out aspect of the industry has such a stronghold.
I am a beneficiary of this; I have a sister-in-law who drives trucks at Cloudbreak but lives in Brisbane.

Mr J.M. Francis: Every time I get on a plane—I am a chatty kind of guy—I chat to the person next to me. Almost every single time, it is someone flying in and flying out from the eastern states.

Mr T.R. Buswell: Or they get up and move.

Mr E.S. Ripper: Which airline—so I can choose another one?

Mr J.M. Francis: I am amazed at how many people I meet who are flying in and flying out from the eastern states.
