Doing this one on QFF points, otherwise I would be looking at other airlines!

Regular in VA business and no doubt the rope repels some loo traffic however always a few who run the gauntlet! To be honest it only bothers me if people are queuing for the loo standing next to me or over me. Its happened a few times. Ive gone to pick up my wine glass and had to be extra careful I didn't touch the backside of the person in the toilet line-up!

I fly economy and never need the business class toilet. I use the airport toilet prior to departure. Business Class travellers should be so smart.

Isn’t the real issue though that in all “new designs” Qantas reduce number of toilets to add in more seats?

I think the layout on some of UA's 737s on domestic routes across the US is good.

You use what you pay for! If you pay for a economy seat you get to use the economy toilets, if you pay for a business seat you get to use the business class toilet.

On my last TT flight while queuing for the toilets at the back one of the crew tapped me on the shoulder and said I could use the forward toilet, but I had to wait by row 4 for it to be free.

You could fly via SYD and connect to EK on the A380.
I don't think I've ever been on a flight where someone has gone through the rope. And the crew are quite good at sending people to the back.
Thanks for the tip, I had a look online and there are J seats on the EK flight, but on the PER-SYD redeye to connect. Something to keep an eye on though.

The fact that Chris the Administrator has had to comment on this thread (to calm us all down) tells me that this is a contentious issue. So why oh why isn’t QANTAS listening to its business class passengers?

You pay for economy you stay in economy! And the whole “first world problem” argument is ridiculous, we live in the first world!

It does happen on VA, but every time I've seen it (and and FA has seen it) they have addressed it with the Pax. I've also seen them allow some pax to use the front loo when there is only one or two people in J.
