    I too love the A380 but have only experienced the EK. How do you find the very different bar on QF?

  • That is exactly what I was referring to, thanks Lala295

  • I'm just glad there will be more competition on this route which hopefully will see some better business class prices being offered!  After everything has been said and done if flight time is same for both airlines a saving of a couple of thousand will see me switching from QF7/QF8 in a hear...

  • Qantas upgrades A380 business class

    Interesting to read your comment re SYD-DFW as I'm currently looking to book a couple of business class seats for this flight for next July. Brings me to two questions : 1.

    Purchased Qantas business class Syd-LGA only to be told by Qantas today I would not gain access to the business lounge in my 2 hour stop-over in Dallas as my next onward flight is on an AA operated aircraft even though that ticket too is business class. Also have some internal U.S. flights booke...

  • My sentiments exactly !!!!!  Annoys me to no end - all those points and you cannot use them.  Using them as cash + points towards any flight is just a plain rip off in my opinion so there we are stuck with these points and the only way to use them is on economy if you are lucky.  T...
