I've only flown on the Qantas A380 a few times and twice the red couch was unable to be used for most of the flight because it was being used as a bed for ill passengers. I felt sorry for the unwell people and am glad they had some space to receive attention and to rest, but it was at the expens...

I prefer to board last except when I'm in Y on the peak-hour domestic routes, where access to the overhead bins can get tough when you're last.

Peak periods are just that - the times when most people are flying - so unfortunately, mine and most people's experience of the BNE J lounge is very different to how the lounge looks in this review. Most people experience a small, noisy and over-crowded space which hardly feels 'premium', w...

I'll be at the Sydney F lounge in less than a fortnight and cant wait! This will be my third visit - once a year for the three years I've been Platinum. This article has whet my appetite yet again! Based in BNE, my status is racked up mainly though lots of domestic Y flights up and d...

I flew the same flight with AY in J last year and am WP. Had spent the night at the airport hotel so didn't have much time to fill in a lounge, but checked out the Louis Tavern CIP First Class Lounge, which is what was printed on my AY boarding pass. The QF lounge was closed when I wa...

I would book economy and use points to upgrade to business.

Based on the predicted population growth of South-East Queensland and the extensive regional network that feeds into the capital, I reckon it wont be too many years before QF can fill an A380 from BNE to DXB/LHR or LAX/DFW. I don't know what the loads are like, but EK ha...
