    Pigeon transfers data faster than South Africa's Telkom | Reuters

    I imagine the government is operating on the same model i.e. lots of cooing about nothing, then flying the coup at first opportunity.

    I wonder if Rudi's been too busy breeding pigeons lately, to have much time for the Lounge?

    Considering the story came out in September, I suspect the pigeons on the South Africa - Australia route had one hell of a headwind
