• Don't rule out many never flying QF again if the went 777x. It's an old airframe and represents nothing other than a loud cramped cabin. Perfect for cargo and as a replacement for 747. Past its use by-date. 787/350 are the future.

  • Give it up Virgin and stick to domestic. Shedding money like there's no tomorrow. You'll always be a Pepsi at best, not Coke-a-Cola carrier in Australia; think Qantas has it.

  • Let's just say you wouldn't want to fly a 777 from Sydney to London. Might just be OK for short, maybe medium haul. It's grossly louder than an A380.

  • Qantas, despite best efforts, are yet to come up with an exclusive quiet space for First and senior tier pax. Melbourne F lounge is just about all that comes close in the entire suite of Qantas lounges worldwide. LAX is a zoo as is Sydney, LHR Is nice but meh and now SIN. I think that exclusive...

  • The A380 is the quietest in the sky then A380, A350, 787, A330, 777. The jump in terms of noisiness from the A330 to the 777 is significantly annoying. That should give an anecdotal understanding how loud it is. There are other factors too. Eg on the 787 those fitted with RR engines are louder th...

  • I think the silent majority agree with Joe! Think I do too when I've paid to be in J or F for the peace space and quiet.

  • No loss. The QF F lounge is more a business lounge. Poor, busy, crowded layout. Its really more a high end business lounge. Its def not at a Sydney Melbourne QF F Lounge standard!

  • What amazes me when I see parents bring crying babies or under 10 year olds into J or F is that the PARENTS don't enjoy their trip!? They are constantly trying to keep baby quiet, or running after the toddler or alternating feeding if both parents are there, reading stories, IFE or game assistanc...

  • This is why QF 380's always go out tech and ad nauseam delays. Emirates hardly have the A380 delays QF does and I wonder why? MORE time spent on each ac, not sending them out with issues which are still safe for flight to take place but need attending to. Qantas work their A380's to the bone! The...

  • Originally Posted by daniesut its no secret QF are struggling to fill the QF9 and 10 flights, even in J - plenty of availability, given its the euro summer, etc would think it would be full - but you look at the QF1 and 2 via Sing, and you cant get a seat - its not the cost or the plane, its peop...
