No. No reviews by AusBT. I think because they perhaps target the 'business traveller' no the 'luxury traveler'.

I flew SIN-LHR-SIN in First this year; a comp upgrade both times from J. It was fantastic. While it isn't too much better than Qantas' Business offering, it is more exclusive and luxurious. The seat is probably the key difference. It is huge and the sleep I got both directions was almost as good as I'd have at home. There are a couple of good reviews online including:

Hi highflyer,

I can't find anything on the AusBT website but a Google search shows quite a few reviews, including one by yours truly (am I allowed to say that?).

It is not as detailed, or as in depth, as something David and the team would write but it will give you an idea. You can use the Qantas category on the right side of the page to see my other flights reviews.

HighFlyer: have done the QF A380 first class flight recently, just gitta get time to write up the review. In a word: impressive (two words? 'very impressive').

HTC: we do actually review first class, because we cover all 'premium' classes, from premium economy to first class. Many higher-end business travellers and executives book in first or use points to upgrade from business.

David, as above, have you had time yet to write up your review of F class on the Qantas A380. I've done a search but can't seem to find a link...
