• Qantas upgrades 'cafe breakfast'

    Mar 26, 2014, 11:07 AM

    It just plan penny pinching, the cost of J from Jakarta or Singapore to AUS east coast is a minimum $1.5K more expensive that others GA / SQ / EK or EY and those airlines can handle a full set breakfast, what’s the issue QF! In addition, as one person who can’t stand sleeping on plan...

  • QFF: points & upgrades with Emirates

    Mar 21, 2014, 01:56 PM

    From previous experience, I would expect that also however after completing dummy bookings via both the QF and EK sites, for a one way SYD to DXB on the 16/04 in J, both priced the same $6115.00 (apart from a few cents). In comparison, on a previous trip I booked PER to CDG via SIN and was ...

  • Garuda's Boeing 777 Sydney-London

  • Just my interpretation of the future of QANTAS and Australian Travel (Armchair Chairman) – The Australian Government must repeal the whole QANTAS Sales Act (you can be half pregnant);• QANTAS is a lame duck now, if the Australian Government only amends to retai...

  • If you’re not limited to airport and you just want to get to Europe, try Qatar to Brussels.Departing Melbourne you have a 1.55 hour stop in Doha, which is enough time to experience the Qatar Business lounge (excellent) and the 787 to Brussels.You will be in Brussels by 1.30pm, plenty of tim...

  • My suggestion would have to be Chelsea, West Village, Greenwich or just through Washington Square park into Soho, its greener and a tad more relaxed than midtown and after a day doing the tourist thing it's a welcome relief.The public transport is so easy, you have multiple metro lines on the Ave...

  • No sure if anyone is experiencing the same frustration, however bit of a rant to follow! I did try to send the following to Qantas Directly, however they no longer have anything that even resembles a complaint department and nor do I fell like writing a letter.I’m really struggling to see a...
