• Qantas trials preferred seating

    So Qantas want to charge people $45 to sit towards the front of the economy cabin in a long haul international flight but they'll still be a few rows behind premium frequent flyers anyway? Who would pay for that?

  • It’s always good to have more options for rewards partners. Bangkok Airways is particularly unexpected and welcomed - a great airline and often quite high prices due to their private partnerships with some Thai airports creating a monopoly, such as Koh Samui.

  • The hyperbole in this thread is hilarious. There are certainly issues with the new Qantas Club in Melbourne but it's a darn sight better than the old one, and for a domestic lounge network the Qantas Club and Business Lounges are amongst the world's best. As for the comment about the food resembl...

  • A very poor value card in my opinion. No payWave or Apple Pay either, to add insult to injury.

  • AirAsia's business class is a bit of a joke and wouldn't hold a candle to even Jetstar's business class, despite the lack of a lie-flat bed on Jetstar. You get one economy class meal replete with foil tray and plastic cutlery, and a mini-sized bottle of water, and that is literally it. No soft dr...

  • I wouldn't. Bear in mind that with the latest recommendations announced today you'll have to self-quarantine yourself for 14 days upon arrival back in Australia if you touch down in China even for a stopover.It's also worth noting the virus is droplet spread, not airborne (in the medical sense) s...

  • Impossible to contact Qantas

    Jul 26, 2019, 03:06 PM

    I'm gold and it took 90 minutes for a call back option the other day. One only needs to glance at their facebook page to see the majority of their negative feedback isn't about their inflight product but rather the complete impossibility that is getting in contact with someone at Qantas, and then...

  • Flight socks in business class

    Jul 22, 2019, 02:14 PM

    Yes it’s still worthwhile wearing them, as it’s not sitting upright in economy class or a lack of legroom that is a risk factor for DVT, but rather prolonged immobility in any position, recumbent or not. Hospitalised patients are in “fully lie flat” beds too and get DVTs a...
