It may be a significant cost, but they also get a benefit (higher loads, higher yields, higher revenue) out of using the highly regarded Virgin branding. This is particularly true for international customers, especially in markets served by Virgin Australia and Virgin Atlantic. These customers ex...

How this shambles of an airline holds a coveted Skytrax 5 Star rating is beyond me. No... I am not talking about MH370 or MH17. MH was poor before these tragedies. EK, EY, CX, SQ, QF any day before MH.

I travelled on them in January. It was by far the worst airline I have ever travelled on. I boarded the plane and this musty stench hit me in the face. Then I took a look around to a sea of old greyish ("ish" only because they were partly brown from years of dirt caked on) leather benches. The ba...

Pretty lame. Unlike the Singapore Girl ads (some didn't have the plane in it either) you don't even get a sense of the product nor the destinations. When you live in Sydney and watch a whole bunch of Sydney scenes (see them everyday), it doesn't really drive you to go somewhere else.

Whoops my previous comment is blank... fail.As an educated guess, SYD-HNL will probably be the last flight to be upgraded to refurbished A330's. This was the last international leg to be served by a Qantas B767. It also probably isn't regarded as strategically important as other A330 legs. It is ...

I would guess that margin would be eaten up by the circling holding pattern at Heathrow. Brisbane or Darwin might be able to do it though. Would be interesting if we could make Darwin the nation's stop over port to Europe with such long range aircraft. But surely that won't happen.

I would not say that they make a fortune out of the program, but it at least enables QF to cover some of their costs. For the most part, particularly on domestic flights, Qantas staff only have access to empty seats. This often leads to staff being held on standby until the very last minute. Even...

Who would be a good replacement for Alan Joyce?

Right you are. It might just be ETOPS-330 but of course QF doesn't have a 777.
