• Yes...YOU give, and QANTAS takes.The things that matter to me are not adressed well by QANTAS...for example, as a gold member for many years with both Emirates and QANTAS, the value of a QANTAS gold is less than that of Emirates (because there are more tiers in QANTAS), accordingly I can't pre-se...

  • If you've travelled on Emirates A380, you'll get the general idea of how comfortable a long haul flight can be...the bar at the back offers a social atmosphere, is quiet and away from sleeping passengers....Sydney to London via Dubai in this manner is perfect

  • Make the layout the same as Emirates' business class. Have high quality 'cocoons' and a bar area available for everyone to socialise. It's well established by the travelling public that Emirates has the best long distance formula by using A380 and the bar facility.I reckon the most comfortable se...

  • Very pleasant looking cabin. Good fresh colours. I like it a lot. Pity about the non-aisle access, but please Alan, if you read this, you can see it's ok to put colours in the cabin...not like the QF decor, taken straight from the inside of a sub-marine!!
