• Am I correct in assuming VA will still honour my already paid for full fare Business Class Ticket from Perth to Brisbane if and when they do start flying again?I would certainly hope so and would be surprised if they did not but one never knows until one asks.

  • Emirates have been well and truly left behind by other Airlines in the First Class seating area. Way too much " bling " with narrow seats ( most business class are that wide ) . The Cabins are fairly confined and don't feel very comfortable , just outdated. Perhaps it's just too costly to refu...

  • patrickk. I hope you enjoy your Perth - London or Sydney- Dallas if and when they drop the premiums quoted.One thing for sure I will never meet you on one of those flights that's for sure.I hate very long flights so won't under any circumstance be on one.Been flying for 60 years now , nearly 30 o...

  • patrickk.What you say may well turn out to be the case but at the moment the info we have from Qantas as quoted is a 20 - 30 % premium so the rest is pure conjecture. Not quite sure how the premium quoted could be regarded as a marketing spin when its an increase! If it were a decrease then yes ...

  • Patrickk. Not sure your info is correct.Qantas has quoted in the above article “ Fares on the two non-stop routes would be priced higher than flights involving a Singapore stopover, based on their appeal to time-pressed travellers – Qantas has suggested the Project Sunrise services will carry a p...

  • I just had a lovely phone call from VA's Brisbane reservations..The Overseas Call centre staff completely mucked my request up.All was sorted out and there never should have been any extra charges so all is really good now.Just goes to show how outsourcing can be a problem.Full marks to VA Austra...

  • I did have a very good reason to go to Perth, my 83 year old sister was having major surgery and I was going to assist her and the household whilst she recovers. As it turned out she had significant surgery and needs a fairly long convalescence. Because of this I now need to stay 2 more weeks. I ...

  • It's not a 1 hr flight that's the issue, it's the 4 & 1/2 hrs transcontinental flight that did not have any seats available.After all of the hassles finally got to Brisbane on Sunday morning and boarded the flight to Sydney, aircraft pushed back and then could not start one engine so a 2 hr d...

  • Thanks very much sim86on. That's exactly what I need to know.Will stick with 5k.Much appreciated.
