It's only a downgrade of aircraft for 3 months. But that's little comfort to those who booked specifically to fly on the A380 during that time.Those people should get their bookings changed to fly QF to SYD or MEL and join the A380 there.

Not on the one aircraft, no. But it's certainly possible to fly from BNE to Europe (LHR) on all QF aircraft, you just have to change planes in SYD, MEL or (soon) SIN. QF would take great issue with your statement that it doesn't fly to Europe from BNE!!!

The daily services to and from BNE-DXB on the A380 are almost always completely full in all classes. There's no problem with loads. (The AKL services are different, that's why they're all going).

No, and lots of people do it. Just make sure the points are in your account before closing the card. The one issue that some people have is that it doesn't help your credit score if you appear to have multiple credit card applications each year.

You're obviously unfamiliar with the previous BNE lounge! The new one is a HUGE improvement. Comparing it against the CX lounges is a bit unfair.

I'd be more concerned about the 1 hour transit. If your incoming flight is delayed in any way, you'll be in trouble.

You will be right about the retiming after the AKL leg is dropped. But which leg will be retimed is up in the air. If I was guessing, I'd say DXB-BNE will be retimed to depart DXB late in the evening.

Great idea and other airlines should follow suit. There is no need for reclining seats on short haul flights, an they only aggravate other passengers.

You are correct - you will be on the arrivals level. The QF lounges are on the departures level. You would need a boarding pass for an onward flight to somewhere else from SYD Int to be able to gain access to the departures level. So there's no way you will be able to get anywhere near the First ...
