• I thought the reason BA3 & 4 were cut was because one of the aircraft needed maintenance (C check?) and as they have only two of these aircraft (A318, not A319) a service cut would be necessary.

    I wonder if they'd be willing to sell some of them as collectors items! :)

  • Qantas selling airport lounge passes

    Jun 27, 2016, 01:07 PM

    This is intersting news, on one hand it would be a nice way to get into the lounge without the status, but it devalues it for those who already have access, especially QC members. In the case of people only being allowed in at 'off peak times' does that mean one could arrive and gain entry at 1pm...

    Row 36 is available to members of Bronze or no status as soon as the flight is available to book. This row has restricted recline I've found though and there is a wall between 36D and the aisle making that set of three less desirable. Rows 32 to 34 if not taken by people of higher status wil...

    The Boy In Business Class :)

  • Qantas still have a nive J product on their 737's, however I agree that the partition or lack of between rows three and four does lessen the value of the J product somewhat. Simply put, I'd steer clear of row 3 when booking if at all possible to avoid this. On the other hand though, if you're stu...
