• Can't agree more. With inbound passengers down in half, the airline will probably need to increase the fare significantly just to break even, let alone profitable.Most Australia states have decided to eliminate COVID-19. Pretending to say that we are still trying to 'repress' COVID is laughable, ...

  • Anybody else had the same experience regarding the 'majority of time spent overseas' as the determining factor for clearing the immigration?

  • Did I read correctly that Brisbane and Melbourne lounges will only have 20 people max? If this is true, I would guess most eligible guests will be turned away during peak hours. For Brisbane especially, I thought stage 3, if that is to happen in July, will allow more than 20 people in a venue...

  • Anybody has any updates about the reopening? With recent announcement of further lay offs, they may decide to postpone the reopening of lounges again?

  • There are always other airline to choose from. I do prefer Qantas over other international airlines normally, but one cannot be a loyal customer when there are no services being offered. Waiting until mid-2021 is out of question. Time to seriously consider switching my loyalty. Or have I just wo...

    I hear you "Jmb". I guess for majority of Australian residents, their lives and work are mostly contained within Australia, so the impact of overseas travel mobility is minimal, if at all. Looking at the percentage of passport holders in Australia, we really are not a bunch of travellers as how w...

  • Unfortunately, it seems like Qantas has stopped many forms of bonus status credits. In a way, it may alleviate any (perceived or otherwise) devaluation of the FF status, making lounges perhaps, just perhaps, less crowded. However, the introduction of pay-per-use lounge scheme seems to offset any...

  • So, just recently, my bid for an upgrade to business class was unsuccessful. However, I did score an at-the-gate upgrade to a Qantas premium economy seat. This is for an 8-hour red-eye flight to Australia. Because it was an at-the-gate upgrade, I did not know that the seat I was assigned to was t...
