• The Qantas Club for me has only served as a place with comfortable chairs, food and beverages and away from crowded gate areas.That said, upgrades were never available, nor expected, even if using points. That part doesn’t work, and priority baggage tags and boarding  are things of the...

  • Been a QC member since 1994.Went to renew for a lifetime senior membership only to find that Qantas had ceased the lifetime membership that month without notice.Continued annual renewals until last year when I renewed under a deal until 2029, at which time I expect I’ll be done travelling. ...

  • Rolex watches have always piqued my interest over the years. I bought one, but first went the the “copy“ path to see if I would be comfortable with my choice. So, after wearing the one of my choice, I was happy to buy a real one. After all, Rolex or their shop owners won’t lend ...

  • I'd booked flights from Hobart to the Gold Coast with Tiger as they had direct flights then. They cancelled the flights and Virgin then provided a different itinerary via Melbourne. While Virgin has limited flights, none depart from Hobart, so I'm stuck awaiting border reopening which may not oc...

  • The DFW A380 flight is good in economy as Qantas ensures business is full. That's where they make their money, not economy. Full cargo, baggage and full fuel means economy pax is reduced so maximum take off load is not exceeded. Economy pax take over rows after takeoff to be horizontal when sleep...

  • It's an unfortunate fact that Qantas staff will be put in business class even if regular pax request an upgrade using points. Have seen this as I actually knew the staff flying and had previously requested an upgrade for myself and family from premium economy. Complained after getting back home b...
