Well said. The vitriol from the ET community is a little bit baffling and sad. I don’t recall seeing this kind of acerbic commentary when Qantas established other non-flight bolt ons to its QFF program, such as Points Club. If this initiative changes some peoples consumer behaviours to be m...

These spurious "rapid testing" kits are a dismal solution to pre-departure screening. They have a consistently documented high rate of false negatives (up to 29%), meaning COVID positive travellers will board flights with misplaced confidence, and won't quarantine on arrival at their destination....

Leave it to Wall Street to find a way to leverage airline FF points into an exotic class of securities. Given enough time, I'm quite sure JP Morgan could parlay the smiley stamps on schoolchildren's homework into a tradable new asset, to the real benefit of nobody.

The title really says it all. I’m currently sitting in steerage on QF637 (BNE-MEL), and witnessing a curious thing I’ve not seen before.We are on a B737 (great wifi) with about a two-thirds full load. For almost the entirety of the plane, pax have been allocated with an empty middle s...

I agree that a seat-only upgrade would be a really nice move from Qantas, however I think this perk should be:(A) unadvertised(B) reserved for Platinum and above(C) limited to elevation from one class tier only to the next, e.g. economy to premium economy, or PE to Business(D) all upgrading cappe...
