    I hope that they make these flights available to the general public as well. I am not a QF FF so it would be great to be able to get on one of these

  • I understand, however they do have a good product on their other aircraft. If you are flying May 2019, you will have the BE Aerospace Super Diamond seats which are great. I just got off them on a flight from London and they were super comfortable. I understand your frustration but I wouldn’...

  • Yeah, you are totally correct @dano282. I have flown Qatar from PER-DOH connecting to Europe multiple times both in economy and business.

  • Have a holiday and use the points or ask you employer if your seniority in the company could be a reason for them to allow you upgradable flights.

  • I have personally never flown First Class and I know that if I was in First Class for my first time I would be slightly uncomfortable with it because if the baby cries then that may annoy me because of the novelty of flying first class for my first time. However, I understand that the vast majori...
