• Qantas revamps priority boarding

    I'll believe it when it happens...and wonder how long they will stick with it. AA, CX, AY and many others do this routinely. Let's hope QFF get same (or better) treatment at home than we get when flying other OW carriers.

    IST would be a welcome and attractive stopover enough to rival SIN or HKG, easily surpassing Gulf cities. Let's hope for direct flights between Aus East Coast and IST.

    The latest list of countries to join GEP include Switzerland, India and Argentina.Any news if Aussies are getting anywhere with this? Other forums seem to suggest that it is our govt that is holding it back.
