• As long as the statements about app improvements are true. The QF app  is so far behind other global carriers in terms of capabilities it's shocking. 

  • QF, VA, NZ and the airports have a role to play in convincing governments that travel can be safe, and covid risk managed. Overseas, multiple airlines and airports are trialling rapid testing, free testing, standardised result apps etc etc...In this region, the airlines are doing NOTHING but canc...

  • The point he is making - since the caps were introduced there have been thousands of empty seats per week coming in to Australia on commercial flights. There is no need to waste tax dollars on special QF flights. Just raise the caps. Not enough people to staff quarantine hotels? Hard to believe -...

  • Absolutely. I am shaking my head in bewilderment at the thought of the Govt subsidising these flights, when there are literally thousands of seats a week available RIGHT NOW!!! If anything the Govt should be rewarding these carriers that have stayed in the market, while QF suspended everythi...

  • There are multiple airlines CURRENTLY operating. There are PLENTY of seats available. The issue is passenger limits!!! Right now, UA and DL alone have 10/11 flights per week from the USA!!! QR via Middle East probably more. They are ready to sell more seats. The Government to subsidise ...

  • Between your two options, I'd be going JAL 787 every time. The idea of an unnecessary stopover grinds my gears. Points aside, I always fly ANA SYD-Haneda. Again, convenience and speed. Haneda one of the best airports and so close to downtown.

  • I recently used the credit for SYD-MEL during peak (xmas) and found the Amex site and QF.com matched.

  • Terrible treatment on QF3

    Sorry, I just don't buy this line. The perceived victim always exaggerates the level of victimisation. I expect there was an operational requiring shuffling of seats. Two and two in business class is a hardly a major issue? "I was almost laughed away, saying 'we gave it to a customer who actually...

  • I just always opt for the newer 787 these days. The jet lag reducing qualities of the 787 on these long hauls are genuine. I'm prepared to forego a bit of space here or there to feel that much better, recover much more quickly, at the other end.

  • United MEL-LAX and SFO-SYD Polaris?

    787-9s on Australian routes are 2-2-2. The 787-9s have Polaris 'soft product' - amenities, menus, bedding (which is the best I've experienced in J - the gel pillows are amazing). The actual Polaris seat will start hitting the -9s in 2020. Other international routes, US - Asia, EU, NZ, have the ne...
