Qantas now plan to replace the Tuesday 787 on the MEL-PER leg with a 330 (starting 11th Feb), so will be interesting to find out where the 787 will go to/from Perth. Perhaps BNE?

The slippers and quilt are a welcome addition. Always enjoyed flying Cathay J to the U.S. from Perth, but find the mid-flight meal from HK to the U.S. strange as it disturbs you when sleeping. PJs and dine-on-demand would be great for the long-haul flights.

100% agree, and the main reason why I won't fly Emirates. The Qatar Business lounge in Doha is streets ahead.

Other overseas airlines appear to have preferred seating from the first row - often only the first two rows are preferred. Starting from Row 9 is plain crazy.

Agree. Not unusual to have a small checkin crowd at FRA but full aircraft, with all the Brits coming across from UK.

Meant to add that sleeping tablets seem to reset the body clock a lot faster.

Believe depends on flight class. When flying for work long distances in economy, used to take prescription sleeping tablets so that I could be effective the next day, but there were noticeable side effects. Now that I'm travelling in Business for leisure, one or two Restavits do the trick.

Also recommend phoning Qantas at exactly the time, or slightly before, the seats are released, as popular routes seats are snapped up very quickly, sometimes within the first few minutes of their release.

Hmm - according to the April SMH article, with a revised range of 9700 nm, it looks like the ULR could make SYD-LHR in a single hop. Interesting.

I believe that's a key question - can the ULR version fly direct SYD-LHR?
