David, looks great. What an improvement. Is there any comment from BA as to the impact on cabin density. Will they get the same number of seats in the same space?

Chris. All good advice. And some practical comments too. Two things I would add / reinforce. (1) being polite and respectful to staff is far more likely to get you the result you want than throwing a tantrum. Or, worse, the “do you know who I am” speech. Staff are far more likely to...

I know it’s slightly off topic, and I know I’m going to get shot down in flames, but hey. Describing a sparkling wine as ‘French Champagne’ is unnecessary, amongst other criteria, it can only be called Champagne if it is made in the Champagne region of France. But it...

Looked pretty good Chris to be honest. Especially compared with most European business class.

In fairness to AJ (there's a sentence I thought I may never write) his first responsibility is to Shareholders and to no one else. Pretty much anyone that has a super fund is likely to have Qantas stock. I am in no way a QF fan, but to criticise a CEO for making decisions that benefit his / her s...

There are a number of factors to consider. However unless you were planning regular return trips to Australia I would imagine that alternative schemes may be sensible. Personally I’d start by considering where you’d be looking to fly to most often. Unless you are wedded to a scheme ...

You should be able to access lounges with your FF status. As long as your on oneworld flights you have access. Especially when traveling economy and relying on a different carriers status I would advise carrying your physical Qantas FF card. You shouldn’t need it. But I’ve been aske...

It may be complete coincidence. In which case I apologise. But I always get a little nervous when at least two happy cheerleaders for this company are first time ever posters. And they just happen to be big fans of Qflyer. They may be genuine. But I would certainly treat that with the appropriate...

Your key phrase relating to pricing is ‘to the states’. Was actually talking to a Doctor friend last night. He has a minor medical condition which impacts his annual travel insurance policy. At most recent renewal his insurer suggesting removing coverage for the US and the premium d...

Wouldn’t claim to be an expert on all *A schemes as for me SQ is the only one that makes practical sense. The only thing I’d add is to what extent you may value things such as the PPS Club. Depends entirely on which routes you may fly, etc. but it offers some advantages if you are a...
