Flew QF First Syd to Lax and Sin to Mel last week. My areas of interest are airline food, wine and service. I thought readers interested in these areas may want to know the following:

In my opinion, Qantas does not remotely care enough about its first class passengers. It is an 'aspiration product' so to speak. Just another way to let you burn points for marginally better and targetting the ultra-wealthy. Honestly, this should be the Business product. Then, it will be world class instead of a subpar business and first.

Flew QF93 F on 3 days ago and had the tasting menu.
I have kept the original F menu and wine list for both flights and am happy to share these if requested. If some flights have the tasting menu and others don't, that raises the issue of consistency.

I made an error in my comments 1. and 2. above - the degustation menu WAS served on the Lax flight but not on the Sin-Mel flight as this was deemed a "supper flight" (departure 1940!!) and my comments regarding the number of courses and quality of food apply to this flight.
The other comments apply, including 3.
The Mel flight was unusual in that a full breakfast was served (hardly any takers), presumably for the connecting passengers from the London flight.
It would make more sense to have a more generous dinner service with a continental breakfast before landing as SQ do on their evening flights to Sydney and Melbourne
Additionally, when I re-read the Lax flight menu, with the degustation, although the number of choices was greater, the overall content of ingredients is more on par with Qatar J (interestingly JAL served a huge dollop of caviar in J (!) on my Nrt-Sin flight).
More money on luxe ingredients and accessories for better F/J product differentiation is needed.
1. A full caviar service (even the excellent Tasmanian salmon roe with creme fraiche and blinis could work)
2. A proper thick hot or cold towel (the current rags, often over- our under- hydrated are embarrassing) offered more than once in relation to boarding, meals and landing.
3. Crayfish, venison, White Rocks veal etc etc
Can't get the menu to attach so will email it to the administrator
