• Can tell the wifi is being hammered these days. Four flights in the last month and it’s nowhere near as fast as it used to be and there is a lot time spent buffering.Great news about the IFE supplier updates. I miss the days of channel 9 providing the news. Partnering with Sky was a mistake.

  • No problems keeping the QF club in Melbourne closed - I for one hope it doesn’t reopen again. That refurb was terrible, but the Business side was awesome!

  • Was in the Melbourne business lounge a few days ago and the QF club was closed. Business lounge was absolutely packed and people looking for spaces to sit. I'd imagine that won't be the case for too long though.

  • Perhaps Australia (and NZ) is just too small for two domestic airlines to operate profitably and sustainably?How do you overcome that in my view?

  • I also put my QF booking reference straight into manage my booking on the Jetstar website. Did it 2 weeks ago off a QF booked, ticketed but Jetstar operated flight and had 1C up and 1D back on both my flights, plus meal and full points/SC.Only difference for you is that I flew 3K Jetstar Asia rat...
