Had a great flight ,FA's and food terrific , but the flight was spoilt by a shortage of toilets (3) only and you share with premium economy 1 upstairs and 2 downstairs ,a ratio of 1 to 25 ,this is rediculous,there were large queues waiting to use the bathroom during the whole flight ,has anyone experienced this ,and please QANTAS as a company director I find this hard to take .please FIX . I believe in a resent refurbishment 2 toilets were removed,

hmmm. 'large' queues during the WHOLE (14ish hr) flight. So you 'required' the loo every MINUTE of the 14hr flight? or are you just having a whinge because on the odd occasion you saw a few people waiting for the loos at peak times? You specifically mention the 1 loo upstairs, and 2 loo downstairs. That in itself reveals the seatmap and loos in Business is 3 loos for 58 Business Passsengers. A ratio of 1 to 20. This ratio for J/C really isn't ridiculous. AND Premium Economy has a SEPERATE loo just in front of P/Y. Maybe you should be whinging about why BUSINESS CLASS passengers spend so much time in the loo if there are LARGE queues during the WHOLE flight...those are your words!!!
The reason I post when I do, is because I am sick of those who bag airlines, post/whinge, based on GENERALIZATIONS AND/OR NO FACTS AT ALL!!!

Not following the 1 upstairs comment - the upper deck of QF 744's have always been 1 toilet behind the cockpit and 1 just in front of the upper galley...

Considering toilet ratios for J, or where combined with PE, the A330s can be be the best and the worst of the QF wide body fleet. 14 on the 300s, 18 on the two 200s with the old seats and a miserable 28 for the rest of the 200s. These were intended to only fly domestically but are now doing long international sectors.

I see the potential for a new Qantas-branded product. Qpan, a new Marc Newson designed bed pan. Stylish and contemporary. Better register Qpan before Qatar Airways get on it! Go!

I travel frequently SYD-JNB in business on Qantas and have never had a problem with waiting for a toilet, never any queues. You must have been very unlucky. Completely agree that the crew have been awesome every trip. On another note I have always been lucky with the skybed 2, except for one trip where we chose the first class seats and I personally found them less comfortable although I'm sure they would have been better than the first generation of the skybed. Has anyone compared the 1st gen skybed to the first class seats on this 747?
