Hi everyone, just an observation that I was wondering if anyone else had noticed too? Recently returned to Aus on QF 747 Business Class, and on both the outbound and inbound I noticed that Qantas stocked paper towels in the lavatories, where previously there had been real hand towels? Evidently this is a very first world issue/not an issue at all, but I was wondering if anyone else had noticed the same?

That's terrible. For what one has to pay for Business Class they can do better than paper towels. Hope it was just a one-off.

I hope that Virgin don't go this way just to save a few dollars I would be happy to pay a extra.

They had the cloth towels in both directions on my Qantas Boeing 787 flights this past week.

I've seen cloth towels change to paper when they run out. Arguably the paper ones were of a higher quality...

Had paper on my PER > BNE J flight last week. Isn’t paper more hygienic?

As long as there is liquid soap in the lavatories the paper towels will do.

It's true! I have noticed it on flights to & from the US recently. The bathrooms in the new first class lounge at LAX are so basic unless I had been delayed for so long and thus had several visits I would have thought I was in the Qantas pub in Sydney! The women's J bathrooms in Sydney leave the LAX ones for dead Only surpassed by the absolute rubbish Qantas pass off as amenity kits! Seriously, either abandon them completely or make them worth having.
