• Qantas: billion dollar blowout

    Aug 22, 2014, 10:56 AM

    Focussing on just the domestic business, how have either airline managed to not take advantage of the huge FIFO boom over the past few years is beyond me. As mining comes off the boil they will only suffer even more, where is the that income going to be replaced? Qantas are just not cutting ...

  • Uber launches in Brisbane

    Apr 22, 2014, 11:51 AM

    The email I got from Uber was that a Prius or Holden Cruze would pick you up in Brisbane. I thought this was a limo based service? Or do Prius's and Cruze's get used in SYD/MELB?

  • Because of FIFO, Lounges are becoming busier than the actual terminals themselves in Australia. I have membership for both Qantas and Virgin and have at times turned around and walked straight back out to find a quieter and more relaxed enviroment in the restaurants or cafe's or even just the gat...

  • Qantas domestically beat Virgin by a country mile when it comes to ease of upgrading. Corporate travellers forced to fly on "saver or sale fares" are very common (not that many on here would like to admit it) and the ability to upgrade these to business is a feature Virgin does not do. ...

  • is BNE our best airport?

    Aug 09, 2013, 02:10 PM

    Adelaide for me, easy airport to navigate, modern and airy good facilities etc. Melbourne, followed by Perth which I find ok and a close follow on to Sydney  Brisbane is a joke! They must be rating it based on not knowing about their poor on time records. I can' t believe an aiport...

  • I'm thinking reading between the lines re connecting flight via Qantas, is that you were flying back to Melb via Sydney or the like, where you would then take a Qantas connection? If thats the case you ended up with a better deal anyway by flying direct to Melb instead of a stopover. What ex...

  • I would agree with taking the hawaiian option first, qantas 2nd as yes they like to use their oldest retiring planes but still offer ok service and reliability and definately Jetstar last. Jetstar always seem to be delayed and eight hours on any jetstar plane for the sake of a couple of hundred d...

  • I asked this question in 2011, 2 years on still nothing. I was given a tablet once but yet to ever see one again. here is what i got as a reply in 2011. Hey, ourladyair, Virgin currently have 10 Boeing Sky Interior Aircraft, with 2 about to enter service. There is about 15 aircraft that have ...

  • If you can verify/argue that the charges were business related then you have a point to bring up with your manger/s as they should have authority to overide a standard accounts decision. However if the internet use was personal, say communicating with your family via webcam, email  etc then ...

  • Whats the go with Virgins new domestic aircraft? I have been on two recent Melb-Brisbane trips where I have been aboard their new aircraft. There are no entertaiment options at all? I looked for usb ports just in case they had some plan of BYO entertaiment, no luck. Nice lighting, new car smell b...
