If I were you, Roger, I'd go to any other site but Qantas, regardless.
I've found lastminute.com.au to offer a better range of options, and
better prices, too.
It's hard to avoid Flash these days - is even installed for all users
in OS 10.6.1 - though it should be easy enough to move the plugin out
of the way when not needed. Luckily, it won't load in Safari if you
run Safari as a 64-bit app.
I really, really dislike the trend now for browser plugins to be
installed and THEN launch your browser to take you to their site -
activity that only makes the situation uglier.
At least in OS X 10.6, plugins won't crash Safari when they fail
anymore. When they fail, they are simply unloaded - so all I need to
do is find a site that causes Flash to fail, and I'm happy.
