It's a nightmare enough flying from Brisbane to Los Angeles on a 787. All the way to Chicago? Never. Have any of Qantas's poohbahs even travelled at the back of the plane, e.g. in 53E? Only when they have will they realise what a nightmare it is to go so far without a stop.

"BA Concord lounges are the closest experience to our Syd / Mel / LAX First lounges with Qantas" Ha, ha! You have to be kidding. QF lounges need a bit of hurry up, too, Definitely need new menus. They've been the same for at least the last six months, except in London, where there were only three...

Those large long haul beds as per SQ246 at 11:50pm business class seats also found on the Boeing 777-300ERs are the best. The QF 'beds' may lie flat, but when you're down, the area is so claustrophobic.

Good choice of lounges at the Brisbane International airport, but I think I detected an error in the article - "open till 11 a.m.". Should that have been 11 p.m.?

Alan Joyce can redefine the expensive ticket priced areas of a plane, but the new economy in the 787 was meant to be "revolutionary". Instead, it went for a 3 x 3 x 3 seating across the cabin. Definitely not revolutionary.Mr Joyce and members of the management team, which of you has ever trave...

I realise Qantas want profits, profits, profits and that means readucing seat size and pitch. All this reduction in comfort for passengers is sending them elsewhere when alternative and more comfortable airlines fly the same routes. Why bother with premium economy when the "comfort" is really lit...

Mr Joyce, 2021 is the Golden Anniversary of the first 747 flights from Australia. How about keeping at least one to celebrate that great day, or even a few more days in 2021? You'd get more appreciation and love from passengers who dread the squeezy 787 nightmare liner.

Skybeds may have had a slight slope, but you weren't hemmed in as per the 787 and A330 claustrophobic flat beds. I have to raise the head to get any form of comfort down in the dungeon.

I've found the 'Nightmare' 787 sleepers claustrophobic. Everything in the area is compressing you and I'm of average build and height. Heaven help the tall and large person.

Please, oh please, use English rather than acronyms. Not all readers understand the jargon. All jargon in any industry or profession is intended to keep those not within the fold out. This series of comments and questions is not too bad. Sc = status credits - I assume, but it gets rather rugged w...
