• Definitely the best A380 inflight bar/lounge, although I do like Emirates' v2 with the nicer design and cafe tables. Etihad's 'Lobby' bar is nice but very small and easily gets too crowded. I know some frequent flyers who prefer QR's A380 business class to the QSuite, although leaving the QSuite ...

  • Have to agree, with so many airlines around the world using different business models, different approaches to services etc, why not look at what is working well in some other market and see if it might be adapted here?This doesn't mean you simply 'copy-and-paste' without taking a lot of other fa...

  • Doesn't the article make it pretty clear that Virgin will launch its new business class in late March? If you are flying on March 2nd that means you are a few weeks early. Besides which, if anybody here knew when the changes would actually be announced it would probably be ET itself.

  • Flyer86, well if that is the case then Rex is going to be very impressive, but the airline has previously said that business class passengers will be served "a specially crafted meal box", so either Rex has changed its mind and gone up-market or your source is very wrong. Until we have something ...

  • This article is about domestic airlines, Reg, which of those 'dozen or more airlines that are far better than QF' will fly you SYD-MEL or even SYD-PER?

  • This sounds like a great trip, and it's a good example of when Oneworld lounge access based on your frequent flyer status comes in so handy! My advice would be:* Melbourne: Qantas first lounge. No contest!* Narita: JAL first class lounge. This has recently been renovated, I have heard it can get ...

  • FYI, Qantas has several more domestic Boeing 747 flights lined up for the end of this year and early next year.* SYD-BNE, QF524 on 9 Nov 2019* BNE-SYD, QF529 on 11 Nov 2019* SYD-ADL, QF743 on 23 Nov 2019* ADL-SYD, QF736 on 25 Nov 2019* SYD-MEL, QF417 on 31 Dec 2019* MEL-SYD, QF438 on 1 Jan 2020* ...

  • As mentioned, Qantas stopped flying to Dubai last year when it switched back to Singapore. For Oneworld I'd suggest Sri Lankan ex-Melbourne or Cathay Pacific via HKG.

  • I believe these are domestic legs before Antarctic flights, the actual flight details from that website linked are:Sydney – Adelaide QF743 SYD1840 – 2015ADL 744 23NOV19QF736 ADL1235 – 1500SYD 744 25NOV19Sydney – BrisbaneQF524 SYD1200 – 1230BNE 744 09NOV19QF529 BNE120...

  • I don't think there'd be the numbers to support a dedicated Qantas lounge, and space is already very tight at SFO's international terminal. BA will have its refurbished SFO lounge open at the end of this year and I'd like to think that Qantas will use this like it did in the past, because it offe...
