Well, Qantas and the Advent Christmas calendar may not go hand in hand, but this lightbox of festive goodness is the perfect way to see the end of 2020 – from Earth.
With the countdown to Christmas well and truly here, the Australian airline has launched its own wine-packed calendar, where punters can try 12 different drops hand-picked by the wine-buyers team.

The Advent Calendar Box, containing 12 windows that correspond to the days before Christmas, includes a surprising red from Aussie icon Penfolds, five Halliday-rated wines by 95 points, and a vintage champagne worth $ 85 a bottle.
The Advent Calendar won’t be cheap – with each box selling at $ 270 for 12 x 750ml bottles.

The Advent calendar comes when the airline launched a flight somewhere last month.
As part of recovery efforts amid the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the tourism and aviation sectors, Qantas announced a new one-off route to Uluru (which is typically served by Jetstar) – but it will cost you little more than just a seat in the budget counterpart.
Dubbed “Journey to Somewhere,” the now sold flight will take 110 passengers on a scenic excursion to Uluru, including a one-night stay.
The first scenic flight will allow guests to experience everything the Red Center has to offer, with the night outing starting with a champagne breakfast in the pre-flight lounge, a flight to Uluru including low-profile flights to Sydney Harbor on departure and low-level circuits to provide passengers with a view from above On Uluru and Kata Tjuta.
During their stay, guests will enjoy an Aboriginal art workshop, and a night at Field of Light, including a three-course dinner under the stars using original ingredients, with a didgerido performance and an indigenous interpretation of the night sky.
The next morning, passengers will watch the sunrise over Uluru and take a guided walk to Mutitjulu Waterhole as well as visit neighboring Kata Tjuta before a late-morning breakfast and lunch and return flight to Sydney for the last port flight before landing.
The entire experience, sold out in 13 minutes, returned passengers $ 2,499 for an economy seat, or $ 3,999 for a seat at the pointy end of the plane.
