• Such an excellent idea. At first I dismissed the idea of a Virgin Gold status match as a Qantas Platinum but then I remembered that being Qantas Platinum doesn’t count for anything anymore with Qantas Clubs in Melbourne and Canberra closed and the business lounges in both those cities start...

  • It's ridiculous that the Canberra Qantas Club remains closed. The Business Lounge is over capacity and it is now getting very difficult to find seats during peak periods. I hate to say it but it would be better if they just opened up the Qantas Club and made business and platinum people go there ...

  • Don’t they have buy on board at the moment? The claim that they don’t and are a full service airline seems wrong to me. I used to fly almost all significant domestic routes out of Sydney on a regular basis and found their alcohol policy incredibly confusing. I’d never know when ...

  • Such an excellent point. Qantas is behaving like there’s nowhere else we can take our business. But this crisis has taught us that we don’t need to travel to do things effectively. Hollowing out the airline and cutting back on the few things that are good about it is a great way to ke...

  • It is even more offensive when you look at their internal communication, where the whole move is basically blamed on customers. Colin Hughes (Executive Manager, Australian Airports) starts his email to staff with "As an outcome of COVID, there’s been a change in the way our customers w...

  • It's not your age, it's your credit worthiness. Qantas and those who stand behind the financial product are perfectly entitled to deny you credit if you are retired and don't meet their credit criteria. That's just simply not unlawful discrimination under the Age Discrimination Act 2004 (Cth).Mor...

  • No jab no travel

    This is going to be yet another instance of boomers screwing over younger generations. The government will roll out the vaccines to over 60s first and they’ll all be off to Alaska for cruises, while the rest of us wait around for 18 months to get vaccines. After systematically screwing thos...

  • @XWu There was a plane at the gate (Gate 5, just below the business lounge). The curious thing is that I was sitting at the window and in the lead up to the flight I didn’t see anyone around it. I was at the longe 45 mins before the original departure time - cargo doors remained closed, no ...

  • Virgin Departing Canberra

    Nov 30, 2020, 10:46 AM

    It seems crazy for Virgin to abandon the key east coast pairings with Canberra and ditch the lounge unless they're planning on giving up on the corporate and government travel markets. Aren't too many execs who don't need to go there from time to time and it's obviously a heavy destination for go...

  • Nothing at all. I saw Alan Joyce sitting in the food court like a commoner last Wednesday. Hopefully the experience gave him some insight into the appalling service they're offering at the moment. I was itching to get back in the air but now I think I'll just stick to Zoom and Microsoft Teams.
