• Flew them in 'Business' once...won't waste my money on them again even if it was slightly more then economy.Would prefer Garuda to come back but that ain't happening.

I posted in community thread a week ago under QF - all flights I was seeing including SQ, EK and QF to PER are 90-100% full some even weeks in advance. Aside from tourism rebound Perth also has ...

  • How are all these destinations being mentioned going to be served with 12 A350s? Majority would not be daily which is an inconvenience to have to suit Qantas schedule then your own. So far I've heard both Mel/Syd to JFK and LHR ontop of the PER 787 flight being replaced by A35p. - that would be 1...

  • Thought it may interest some of the community who fly Qantas and count on upgrades that majority of international flights are at total capacity week after week. This includes the A380/787 flight to London/Singapore and 787 to Rome, Los Angeles with premium cabins next to no availability and econo...

  • Qantas will still sell all scheduled flights even though a higher percentage then normal will cancel and these are business/ commerical and operational people that are paid to manage and know this and work for the best interest for Qantas and company $$$.
