• Driving along General Holmes Drive the other day I saw one in the rear seat of a Mercedes convertible. Maybe staff are getting first dibs. 

  • Excellent review Brandon. Comprehensive and fair. Qantas needs to address the inconsistency issues and invest in making its first class product unique and exceptional. We don't all fly in first but it sets the standard for the rest of the airline and signifies whether management is serious abou...

  • Air NZ have flown this route to London for decades. I remember landing in Gatwick in the 80s not Heathrow. Must be a big shock to the airline's employees and Kiwis more generally. London has always had a strong pull for the young on both sides of the ditch. Bit of a shame they couldn't have con...

  • Would JFK be beyond the reach of the 787 from Brisbane? If not, then I'd rather do transfer at Brisbane than LAX and have all the domestic traffic funnelled through Queensland. I'm guessing though the logistics don't work and QF will wait for the Sunrise project to deliver an aircraft that can.

    Qantas has a point if PER insists on all international flights departing from the other side of the airport. Co-locating the domestic and international flights is the whole point of making PER a hub for European flights. Otherwise you just have another SYD on your hands. Until a new domestic term...

  • Sydney domestic is about as ugly and inconvenient an airport terminal as it is possible to find. An ad hoc mess that just gets worse everytime they meddle with it. I'd close and demolish the centre carparks and shift all parking out to the Blue Emu facility with a frequent shuttle service put in ...

  • I've been stuck in 46K on that leg. Aviod at all costs, the bulkhead of the door sits right in front of you so you have to swing your legs to the left. It becomes very uncomfortable.  Although its easy to get up and go to the bathroom and the FAs tend to take pity on you and spoil you a bit.

  • Qantas will look to increase frequency. So a five weekly service becomes daily for example. Daily or twice daily services represent a big leap forward in network expectations; especially for business travellers who may have to choose a competitor if a meeting is scheduled for the odd day with no ...

  • That sounds pretty good Andrew. Much more relaxing. The NSW Government will be replacing current trains, so lets hope the service is given a significant boost. 

  • Qantas PE is definitely worth the upgrade. It represents one of the best ways to use your points, but it is a bit hit and miss whether you get it. Good luck!
