• I wonder if QF gave him the flick due to lack of competition now that Manigan is gone; wouldn't put it past QF - their MO has always been "money money money in a rich shareholders world" ;)

  • The 777 and the 737 are arguably the worst in terms of current loud aircraft. Bakar can spend all the money he wants on in-flight product but if the 777X turns out to be 'meh' not sure what's been achieved ditching the current 777 fleet. Perhaps maybe 50 extra LED cabin lighting options to justif...

  • I wish the ACCC would do the same with regulating petrol prices like they do in Canada. People aren't taken for fools and ripped off when it suits the the service station.

  • I'd prefer a one daily A380 to SYD than 2 x daily A350. Much nicer experience on A380.

  • A sad day for passengers. It's all about survival for Qantas but the A380 is/was simply unsurpassed experience wise. Can anyone clarify if it is the newest 6 that are refurbed or a mix?.....if its a mix doesn't make sense they'd refurb the older iterations as I understand some had issues.

  • 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...
