• I can advise that Perth business lounge only opening at 0700 and platinum flyers are not allowed access when returning on Qantas flights. Maybe better luck when I fly to Kalgoorlie in September.

  • Have been further frustrated arriving back in Perth at midday today that they aren't allowing platinum flyers to use it as an arrivals lounge. Can't believe the lounge would be anywhere its 350 capacity with so few flights and most being intrastate Fokker 100s.

  • Will be good once the Perth Qantas club reopens. This morning I was in the minority of not wearing fluro gear. I think that is a major reason the business lounge didn't open until 0700 which was the time my flight departed so I had to buy breakfast and coffee. First world problem. Most of those ...

  • Just got to Perth airport to find out the business lounge doesn't open until 0700, just when my flight departs. Looking around the airport is a swarming with FIFO workers and they would fill the lounge if it was open before that time.

  • I think all our major cities should be taking these flights including Darwin and Canberra to share the load. Shouldn't be limiting the people returning home.

  • Does anyone know when Qantas will reopen domestic lounges? In a recent fly well press release it mentions 12 June for the roll out of measures and mentions changes to the operation of lounges?

  • Will the gradual removal of intrastate borders within WA I've just come back from 2 nights in Bunbury, a drive of just under 2 hours from Perth, as the southern border was the first to go. I've just booked a 2 night stay in Geraldton for early July, a 1 hour flight on Qantas, as the northern bord...

  • Received an e-mail today from Qantas offering 25% status credit bonus for all flights between Australia and NZ booked between 23 to 30 March after you have registered your interest. Travel has to be from 1 April to 30 June this year. Has anybody else received the same e-mail? I've done my dash wi...

  • It is just one guest. I have gold status but also get 2 QF lounge passes from Westpac each year. When I was in Singapore last year I used my gold status to get one guest into the QF lounge and a lounge pass for the other. Maybe your friend, if eligible, could sign up for one of the credit cards t...

  • Qantas refresh for old Boeing 747s

    Jan 06, 2017, 05:23 PM

    Qantas should have got another 2 A380s and retired those 747s. Their running costs are a lot higher than an A380 and you can't underestimate the cost of annoying loyal Qantas passengers by providing substandard business class products. A little bit off topic, I have a fe...
