Editors Note: ”Spitting your dummy” – Australian and U.K. slang meaning to lose one’s temper in a juvenile fashion. To throw a temper tantrum. Similar to a child discarding a pacifier (a dummy) in a fit of anger.
- one of Australia’s leading daily newspapers, reported in its Friday, June 17, 2005, edition that calls to join a travel boycott of Bali "have fallen on deaf ears with record Australian tourist numbers prompting Garuda Indonesia to add an additional flight from Sydney."
In the article written by aviation writer, Steve Creedy, quoted Garuda Indonesia
as saying that "consistently strong bookings showed Bali was on track for another record year and it would therefore add a fifth weekly flight, using a wide body Airbus A330."Qantas
also reported strong results for May with a strong increase in recent weeks for bookings to Bali in the June-July period.
Despite vehement threats from some 120 Australian travel agents to stop booking Bali in the wake of a Shapelle Corby conviction for drug smuggling, apparently those agents continuing to accept Bali bookings are experiencing an unexpected windfall as business from the boycotting agencies move to their travel shops.
