• I hope that QF introduces a bigger plane - A380 or 787 - on QF23/24 given the demand will increase. Or even better for me would be introduce a MEL-BKK service.

  • I wonder if MEL-IAH is next. That would capture the oil company market from Perth currently using Air NZ’s AKL-IAH service, and pick up those from Melbourne who currently have to transit through LAX, SFO, AKL or SYD.

  • What? Why should children not access it? Ridiculous.

  • Actually ignore that - I’ve checked a map and the lounge is near the departure gate. Which is better than today.

  • Looks good - I’m not overly impressed by the current Plaza Premium lounge. My usual VA flight to POM departs from Gate 26 - I hope they’ll be shuffling those around if the lounge is at Gate 77.

  • I always get the Corn Fritters, and ask for two poached eggs on the plate as well.

  • Has Qantas ditched Pressreader?

    I’m flying tomorrow and expected the access to Pressreader to be highlighted in the Qantas iPad app, but it isn’t there. Am I missing something, or has Qantas stopped this service?

  • Qantas full flex, bumped to Virgin?

    I’m not sure what the complaint is - they moved you to the next available flight, which happened to be with another airline. As mentioned above, QF will credit you points and Status Credits if asked.

  • I travel to Asia often on Qantas, and have enjoyed the business suites for some time now. However, I’ve noticed that QF24 from BKK to SYD on January 19 has a 2-2-2 layout in Business. Is Qantas not finished upgrading all their A330s yet?

  • Tipping at Qantas LAX First lounge?

    Jan 07, 2017, 08:36 AM

    Where does this information come from that Qantas pays staff more than other lounges in LAX? As much as we hate the American tipping culture, you are in the US so I would think that US practice applies. On the same basis, I doubt you'd tip the staff at a United lounge in Australia.
