• I totally agree with you Joe: it's time that Qantas overhauls its Business and First class catering, moving away from Neil Perry and getting with the times. I've found Qantas's Business and First class menus very average in comparison to other carriers, disproportionately filled with seafood dish...

  • If you're Qantas Platinum or Platinum One then head (literally) next door to the Cathay First Lounge. The significant difference is proper a la carte dining. I've been here a number of times and had breakfast and lunch. Far superior food to any other One World lounge in Terminal 3.

  • I'm flying from Stockholm to Sydney, via Doha in November. I've got the QSuite on the three of the four flights. Price was $3,800AUD return! And add on $200 for a return flight from London (where I live) to Stockholm.

  • Now they just need to improve the slop/swill served up on international business class. I fly BA business class now and then between London and New York, and I don't bother with onboard food anymore. I eat in the lounge, and then buy a nice tasty sandwich at Pret, fruit salad, some crips, smoothi...

  • I flew Turkish comfort class in 2016 from Istanbul to Tokyo. It was a great seat, very comfortable and great food. The only gripe I had (and which I understand is quite common for Turkish Airlines planes) is that the cabin temperature was really high - my guess around 25C/26C.

  • Some people seem to become deaf and blind when they're at airports and boarding their flight.I flew recently from New York to London on American Airlines. Gate agent announced very loudly and clearly multiple times they were boarding people who had Group 1 written on their boarding passes and rep...

  • Background: I've been Qantas Platinum for the last four (4) years. My current membership year ends on 31/8/20I won't have enough status credits (SCs) to retain Platinum and probably won't even have enough to get Gold. Questions:1. I've heard that even if I don't get enough SCs to reach gold, I'll...

  • I think it's time Qantas took a public stand against Neil Perry and Rockpool. It looks like the scandal is bigger than that of George Calombaris. https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2019/oct/24/rockpool-accused-of-tampering-with-time-sheet-records-to-workers-of-10m?CMP=Share_iOSApp_Otherta...

  • QANTAS Double Status Credits MIA

    Oct 24, 2019, 08:04 AM

    I'm also shifting my loyalty to British Airways because of no QF double status credit promotions. In particular, BA offer significantly more status points for business class in Qatar which is who I'm now flying to Sydney instead of Qantas (and flying out of Stockholm for sub $4000AUD return fares...

  • I thought I'd update this with new information. Your One World status trumps whatever FF number is shown in your booking. By this I mean if you're Qantas Platinum, but your boarding pass has a different FF number from another airline (for which you hold no status) you still get the benefits of Qa...
