Emptiest airline terminal ever in that video!!

That will also be the end of any plans to fly PER-CDG or to somewhere in Germany. Idiotic bureaucrats strike again. At least there should be no more whining from people in Perth about how QF doesn't provide them with sufficient flights on its own metal - now they can see who is to blame!!

Dubai and Emirates haven't been given the flick at all. The joint venture agreement with EK has just been extended for another 5 years. EK services a huge number of European ports on QF codeshares and will continue to do so. QF's strategy is that it serves LHR with its own aircraft, and possibly ...

Doesn't require government approval, it's purely a codeshare arrangement. The two airlines are still competing against each other, not collaborating on price and schedule.

Alan Joyce has made the comment that (for QF), sales in F from MEL are not strong, whereas they are quite good from SYD. And many of us are well aware that it is easier to get F award/upgrade seats from MEL than from SYD, because of lower demand for paid F seats.

CX has just announced another loss in its annual financial report; perhaps it is wanting to maximise commercial fare sales rather than awards (for which they get paid also, but not at the same rate).
Aug 15, 2018, 09.50 PM / What is going on with CX partner award availability ex-Australia?
Do you get the points? No. Should you get the points seeing you've paid for them? Different question. Morally the answer would be yes - but that's not how it works. I guess the airlines fear they'll end up flying a significant number of empty seats when there are things like the DSC promotion on....

Purely an issue of how many cards they had preprinted (with the old artwork) at the time of the change.
Jul 31, 2018, 12.43 AM / Qantas American Express Ultimate
I have no problem with rear-facing seats. In fact in some ways, I really like them. The herringbone/sideways angle seats I find a little less appealing, but just look out the window and it matters little.
