Load factors on QF5/6 to Frankfurt were very high right through to the end. It's a high yield, business-heavy destination and a far easier connection than LHR.It's strange to be starting routes with little track record, when they had a decades-long presence in Frankfurt until only recently,...

How many 787s did Alan Joyce cancel?They could have had those aircraft with great prices and early delivery slots. But nope...

Makes sense. I stopped hanging on to airline pyjamas years ago. No point taking just because they're there.

To be fair - being HON doesn't mean much unless you regularly fly through a LH hub. If you do, it's amazing. But to qualify takes double or triple the amount of flying that gets you P1 on Qantas.And if you don't, you're just a work-a-day Star Gold, which doesn't get you far in Australia.

The threshold is ridiculous. Even someone I know who travels an incredible amount (to the extent he gets Christmas cards from Alan himself) reckoned he'd never get there.But another thing they could look at is some additional recognition for LTG (and Silver) holders to help them get to the ...

By referring to emerald it sounds like you'll be arriving one a Oneworld flight into Terminal 2? In that case the answer is "nope"!There's a Sheraton and a Holiday Inn at the airport if you want to get a proper room. And there are pay showers air-side in Terminal 1 if you can get there.

I'm 87 status credits from lifetime Gold, so I should get there soon. I'm pretty sure I've got at least 18 months Qantas Club membership still to run - it's been sitting there for many years since I last hit Gold. Obviously I'll never need this again.A while back I think someone suggested Qanta...

Hi all - any idea if QF status credits are earned on an Iberia-marketed flight which is listed as "Operated by Air Nostrum for Iberia"? Apparently Air Nostrum is a "Oneworld Affiliate" and the QF partner earning site suggested the relevant flight (IB8707) would accrue status.The call centre didn...

It would be nice if they focussed on getting us from A to B safely and comfortably, rather than indulging in fashionable tokenism.The maps in the QF lounges showing various language groups are fascinating. If they really feel the need, simply tell us whose country we're flying to or over. Make ...
