Does the new A350ULR have a coffin as the A345 had?
Oct 15, 2018, 08.38 PM / Here is why the world's longest flight doesn't have a lounge or a bar
Thanks a lot. I was more referring to if NZ has same rule as QF where you have to fly sectors on its airline’s own metal in order to reach/ extend gold. Some airlines do have this rule (like QF, UA) some airlines don’t have it (eg OZ). Reformulating the question: can one extend the ...

For the 450 status points to extend gold for +1year does one need to fly one or several segments on AirNZ or can it be covered by any *A partner (e.g. flying only on LH, SQ, UA, etc)?

Note that qantas charges for alcoholic beverages on some routes. Flew SYD-CNS a few weeks ago and a small bottle of wine was like $7 or so. I asked the stewardess why they charge. She told me on “holiday routes” they always do. Don’t understand this policy...Btw I’d be...
May 26, 2018, 04.28 PM / Qantas says it has no plans to charge for meals, drinks and baggage
I don’t understand the irrational unjustified fuss about the SIN lounge. Flying business to EU I’d prefer direct isle access, privacy seat and an inflight bar any time over the outdated Skybed II on the QF A380. I’d think that the comfort for 20h+ in mid-air would be more imp...
Mar 18, 2018, 09.50 AM / The big switch: Qantas changes London stopover from Dubai to Singapore
Techie av-geek curiosity question: I was always wondering where Qantas takes the extra capacity during peak season to fly SYD-YVR (QF75/76) on the 747 and the 2nd daily flight on SYD-LAX (QF17/1 on the A380, as was the case this summer. Where do these “heavies” fly typically off-p...

What happens to VH-OJS now? Is she retiring for good or used ex-SYD?
Dec 01, 2018, 03.34 PM / End of an era - last Qantas Boeing 747 services for Brisbane this week
VH-OJS returned to BNE as QF56 that day. It seems that the 747 has been used to run QF15/16 as a substitute for the Dreamliner at least once in the last few weeks. Hope it’s an exception / 787 or 747 maintenance / last minute swap - kind of thing and will not be reoccurring. Even though I...
Nov 26, 2018, 09.12 PM / QF15 BNE LAX 24.11. - 747?
I thought the QF15/16 is supposed to be daily on a 789 - see on Flightradar24 that today it is a 747 (OJS). Anyone has any info on that? Is this a one off or planned over the holidays due to increased capacity (in addition to QF55/56)?Thanks
