• The Stelia Opera is beautiful but the seat pitch is 38" whereas the Vantage Solo is 33." The Vantage Solo also has the ability to provide 2 First Class suites with no LOPA penalty.Not to mention most First and Business guests want to work or sleep, not look out the window. Also, Opera makes paire...

  • I think Virgin should reallocate the MAX deposits towards the 787s. When it comes to replacing the narrowbody fleet down the line, I'd suggest they switch to A220s. That would allow them to provide a substantial improvement over QF's narrowbody hard product, and allow them to serve a wider variet...

  • You raise a compelling point but here's the problem:With Project Sunrise, QF is in the position to offer a unique product that no other airline would want to (the Euro airlines have no reason to buy small subfleets of aircraft capable of reaching Oz nonstop).Even if they effectively leave the int...

  • Just make VOz the JetBlue of Australia. That will work perfectly fine. Better than Jetstar, not as corporate-focused as QF, and providing an humane flying experience.It really is that simple and that easy. Also, I'd like if they look into having an A220-based fleet but that's not very likely. Sti...

  • I agree this lounge is disappointing (I was there recently). PAL have been investing and upgrading, so surely an investment/upgrade of their flagship lounge is in the planning stages. But they should get onto it quickly.

  • Interesting that they've increased the number of Max 10s. Perhaps they want a subfleet of Max 10s for higher-capacity short-haul routes, and a subfleet of Max 10s for the short-haul international and transcon routes?

  • I'm going to play spoiler and suggest that Virgin may go for a slightly more compact product than the Delta One Suites.Why? Virgin need to fit in a bar (unlike DL), have lots of leisure traffic, appeal to a younger market, and have stiff competition. So my speculation is that Virgin will go for t...

  • They're based on a similar principle but they're not the same seat.Emirates A380s use Zodiac's Skylounge product (ANA use this as well), whereas Qantas uses the Thompson Vantage XL product.

    I'm a militant atheist. But I don't get offended at the mere presence of a religious text. It doesn't burn me or make me scream in pain. Even if I do want to roll my eyes a little over it, I don't feel personally offended or excluded or "micro-aggressed" against. That said, "there's an app for th...
