• Like it or lump it, there are certain things passengers may need to do with the help of a person. Automatic booking and/or getting a boarding pass can be done with an app. That're a doddle, but there are so many times the intervention of a helpful knowledgeable person is vital. What's happening t...

  • Good for Hilton. This is fine for people who can travel to places where they can stay at Hilton hotels. My base Hilton is in New York. There's no way, as an Australian, I can travel there, even if I wanted. One day, if the virus spread in the USA stops, I can go back. Then again, I may be too hea...

  • Looking at the pictures of the food, there're far too many bearing LEAFY GREEN THINGS. Thanks but no thanks. I'm sick of having to take the stuff off. That's waste. Each to his/her own but I can't wait to be able to get a roll, etc without the stuff.

  • The A380s entered Qantas's service with all fire trucks spraying. They slunk off with no one standing in farewell at fences at Mascot. With covid-19 rampaging in the UK and US, I for one will be staying put at home for the foreseeable future. I'll miss my jaunts and business trips to both countri...

  • How about that! I'm losing something I didn't even know was available to me. I did get a rather nice bread roll and a small bottle of booze on several AA flights. I even took a bread roll on to a Qantas flight home. Beat the tar out of the Neil Perry stuff we were given on the 787. Desperate time...

    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.

  • No more Mk1 skybed!

    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...
