[Qantas Club] Are the pancake machines slower? I noticed this time on my visit to the MEL T1 QP that the machines were awfully slow and it took forever for me to get a pancake out, and there was no option to stack an order so you could get three made at the same time.

As a result, I had enough time to scoff a bowl of birchermuesli in the time it took. As much as I love the pancakes in all their airy, anaemic glory, I might have to focus on the eggs and ham-cheese-tomato toasties. (Speaking of which, has anyone tried making egg sandwiches?)

Has anyone else had this problem with the pancakes?

They're not slower, they've just been enhanced.

Enhancements, one pancake at a time.

If I wasn't such a sucker for them I wouldn't've bothered.

I suggest you take your pancake problem up with Qantas customer service.  They actually might get back to you quicker than it takes to make one!!

Fair point, it gives me something to complain about. I was in a right hurry because of a baggage hoopla too...

Are the machines actually slower or is your gut just getting bigger?

The machines are actually slower, as you can't order two at a tme anymore, so the queue builds as each person runs the machine twice.

Thanks for caring about my waistline, though.

The speed is configurable (there's a dial at the back) but this also determines the crispiness/burn factor of the pancakes.

Oh, that explains a lot. Are customers actually allowed to fiddle with the dial?
