Would be a step forward, but perhaps only when the greedy CEO's stop with their current money grab. Post-covid is all about 100 loading's, airfares 2 to 3 times pre-covid levels, and profits, profits, profits. I see the CEO's point but I also see the passengers desires. Passengers love comfort an...

Definitely a subject needing investigation. IMO, US domestic economy seats could be 20% wider with pitch increased from 31 to 37, especially for passengers requiring the extra room on those 4-5 domestic routes. Airlines will see red with this of course, but then again the average passenger over t...

A great move forward for REX, as long as they keep it simple for both the professional and casual traveler to enjoy. some of the rules and regulations attached of QF and VA's schemes make FF membership sometimes so confronting and limiting, it spoils what the programs are meant to be. If REX keep...

Totally agree. If travelling 8 hrs or longer, then beds are a bonus, but for shorter flights, generous recline and pitch is the right mix. First Class in the 70's on QF 707's were recline and pitch effective (No beds then) and passengers flew 36 hrs to Europe. Beds for 6 hr flights, not nece...

To cannibalize one aircraft to feed parts to others seems shortsighted given the shortage of A380's QF has in its fleet. With so many decommissioned A380's globally, economical spares are not in shortage, where as operational QF A380's are. SYD-LAX some days serviced by A380's...

Totally agree and have experienced the same. It is simply a combination of the above comments, with some passengers feeling they are entitled to bring on bigger and more hand luggage than allowable (presumably through non diligence of airline staff at boarding gates) than the other mere mortals t...

Seems to me, quite an embarrassment in modern aviation. AKL airport staff will soon be hand pumping fuel from imported 44 gallon barrels to get the aircraft in the air. What a joke!.

I had a similar experience, but different. I had a credit with Virgin Australia a few years ago due to a flight cancellation and this credit was accessed and used by a third party without my knowing. This mystery passenger was based overseas. The credit was refunded to me after a l...
