I can understand why Virgin Australia have not yet announced or started their new business class service but why is Qantas still offering limited service ( according to their web site)?

The borders may not yet be fully open but why not offer full service for those who can and do travel in business class and cross the borders?

They will have plenty of notice to prepare meals as the fares are quite high so they're not going to be rushed by people wanting to travel business class just yet so it would not be too hard to do it for the few who do travel surely!!!

Qantas resumed serving hot meals and alcohol in Business a few weeks back.

I'd be happy with a few red wines on my business class flights with Virgin this week!

@janner76, be careful, 3 of my flights with virgin in the last few weeks have had wine, my last one however it apparently "wasn't loaded"

I think VA have limited service but right now but I guess you get what you pay for. As an example, VA on BNE-ADL is $799, QF is $1129.

Janner76.

Unfortunately it is illegal to bring and consume your own on board.

I thought about it for a flight Per-Mel-Bne but was informed of the rule by VA ( would assume QF is the same ) and posters to this forum. It would be quite unusual for them not to have it as most posters have at least had some drinks of wine in J

VA actually encourage you to BYO. At check in they warned us that the service will be limited and advice that I BYO.

I was referring to Janner 78's post re bringing " minis " on board which are miniature bottles of booze not food.

Unless things have changed dramatically then I think you will find they were referring to BYO FOOD which they do encourage but NOT BYO Booze which I believe is illegal to consume in flight. The licencing Laws only permit It to be purchased or given as part of J service but must be done by the crew on Board and not BYO.

A stainless steel “water” bottle may be required. It was effective on BA Eu flights last year (where service and offerings are worse than JQ)

Just remember to keep it upright (maybe in the seat back pocket) and remember you will need to release the pressure when the seatbelt sign is turned off and after you land.
