• Qantas promises more A380s for Asia

    Apr 27, 2017, 07:16 PM

    That's really strange - I was on an A380 from HKG to SYD this Monday just gone. Was in 2F (my preferred seat under the stairs) and service was J but we still had the proper F mattresses fitted for us.

    Has it been only a recent development that the 15 minute treatments are extended to Qantas Platinum members? I've asked on some previous transits through and the spa staff have always refused.

  • It depends on what airport you're flying from, and whether you're talking about domestic or international flights. Provide a little more information and I'm sure we'll be able to assist :-)

  • I suppose everyone is different but I think Qantas provides better sleeping patterns. On the flight from Australia to DXB you can just snooze every now and then and not stress too much about sleep, and then on the leg from DXB through to LHR you can sleep the whole way, getting to your destinatio...

  • I much prefer the CX lounge to the QF lounge. I tend to shower in the QF lounge and then head to the CX lounge for dumplings. But the JL lounge is even better - so once I'm satisfied with my dumplings, I head over to the JL lounge for my relaxing lounge time.
