Looking to fly Qantas first class from Sydney to Los Angeles – especially courtesy of a points upgrade from business class? Then from late April 2016 you'll want to avoid flying on Tuesdays.
As of April 26, Qantas is swapping out its Airbus A380 on the Sydney-LAX QF11/12 schedule for a Boeing 747 where the premium cabin tops out at business class.
The change happens on the same day that Qantas axes its afternoon Boeing 747 flights to Los Angeles.
However, there's a silver lining to the LAX first class cloud: the Qantas A380 service from Sydney to Dallas will toggle up from the current six days a week (Wednesday to Monday) schedule to a daily run, with that previously LA-bound superjumbo now slated for a Tuesday flight to Texas.
Passengers already booked in the A380's first class cabin for Sydney to Los Angeles on any Tuesday from April 26 onwards should contact Qantas to discuss their fee-free rebooking options, which including shifting to a Qantas or American Airlines flight one day either side of your original date of travel.
If nothing else, it's a good chance to try AA's international Boeing 777-300ER first class suites (below).
