Which then begs this question - if it is for such a small number of people (say 100), all of whom know who they are and are already known to almost everyone at QF, then why announce it as a thing? Why not just call those 100 and invited them into a secret club? Why announce a program that is on...

I have been platinum on Qantas for 16 of the last 19 years. I have 20k lifetime status credits. To get to lifetime platinum I would need to keep up my average Qantas travel for another 50 odd years. I look forward to getting a 100th birthday letter from the Queen and a life time Plat letter fr...

Never in the history of QFF has as change to the program meant good news for us. I mourn the loss of anytime lounge access, of equal status credit earning on partner airlines, of once a year guaranteed upgrade credits, etc etc etc. Remember when they "streamline" it means things they used to d...

why not? If it is a busy time of year, it means they are carrying lots of passengers (making lots of money). You judge a company on how they perform at their busiest, not when they are quiet.

Was at the QF Sydney business lounge Saturday. It can only be described as lounge pandemonium. Getting a seat requires walking up a down the lounge and then engaging in a Le Mans start dash to any seat that is abandoned. Then sitting in and around the muck (plates, cups, etc) of the last user....

Curses and Boooooo to QR for being the only major Oneworld hub with status lounges different to class lounges.

I agree with one "but". The extended new wing to the TG lounge is an improvement. At the very least it has increased the amount of space, reduced overcrowding and added a better bar area. That said, the bartenders have a lot to learn. My first order of a martini was over iced (watery) and cam...

Singapore Airlines just opened a new Lounge in BKK. Hands-down the best business class lounge in BKK. Trumping the excellent lounges of CX, EK and QR. Full bar with bartenders, extensive hot buffet, lots of seating and centrally located in the D wing. Have not tried getting in with a non-SQ s...

QR are OK in the air but not so on the ground. The "status only" lounges are very poor cousins to the "ticketed" lounges. The QR emerald lounge (first class lounge for non-first passengers) is a mid level biz class lounge. The saphire level lounge is on par with a crappy Priority Pass lounge. ...

What's the view on Private Room vs QF first class Sydney ?
