• This is a wonderful idea, but you have to give low ranked frequent flyers a realistic way of getting home as well.

  • Sigh...If an airline is so concerned with flexibility in the ratio of J to Y, what is so hard about a half decent convertible seat? Not as good as a dedicated business seat, but much better than this rubbish.

  • For tall passengers, the seat pitch and bed length of the hard product is, by far, the most important consideration. No matter how many wonderful other services provided to a premium passenger, it is the cramped conditions that make seats like this, and the new PE on QF, a non-starter for me, and...

  • No question that Qantas First is better than the old 777 Emirates product, but Emirates has First cabins flying all over the globe, and if you are Skywards Gold v QFF Gold, getting a redemption First seat is significantly more likely on Emirates.

  • Yes, as I wrote, it is more selective when it comes to State MPs and judges. Which means some get it, and some do not, unlike the Federal sphere, where it is universal. Hence, my statement was true.

    Was recently in F to London, and a married couple kept swapping between a F and Y seat. He explained to the crew that they were sharing the care of their baby in Y, and the crew did not bat an eyelid. I did not mind either. Do not think anyone else did.
