I travel once a year F to Europe and several J class flights domestically and thus I am a nobody to Qantas but my guess is there are many of us whom individually are nobodies but collectively, if we are unable to access service when we need it, will become a voice of discontent. My husband ...

I find the Arabic dining options in the First Class Lounge to be particularly fine - usually light, fresh and tasty. The recent breakfast option of foul mesdames was a standout!

I concur with @AfricaTraveller's comments. A peaceful haven if Concourse C is the departure point.

I am conflicted - I understand the QF delay issue in delivering checked baggage is annoying in the extreme and a 7kg limit in a bag of appropriate dimension is restrictive; but I do wonder at the passengers who drag entire checked luggage allowances on board and then proceed to jostle, complain ...

As a regular traveller to Europe and the south of France in particular, I will continue to fly a QF ticket on EK through Dubai for as long as that option exists. At least the F flyers are appropriately accommodated at DXB.

With children, I would opt for the night EK flight out of MEL - this is the perfect flight to ensure some sleep. Breakfast in DXB will fill the time and reorient the body clock and from there it is an easyish flight to Rome, arriving early afternoon. This timetable is the easiest on youngsters ...

I have always been served Dom Perignon in the air and on the ground at some ports; but Moet is served before departure on the ground in MEL.

I have only ever flown F on Emirates and each time I have purchased a QF ticket to maintain status.
