The reason it is free is to attract customers. The same reason (unlike the US) that baggage check in is free. Jetstar is there if you wish to pay, and I am sure they will have wi-fi soon for a price.

What I can’t understand about Qantas is that it ignores some of the very fine Australian sparkling such as the finer ones from Tasmania which match some of the French options and more.

Of course the top of the range tassie ones $ for $ give the French non vintage a very good run for the money indeed.

Joe QF does Canberra to Brisbane on weekends on a Dash 8 and 2 hours isn't too bad. More leg room than a 737.

At busy times it is best to sit at the bar. Hard for them to ignore you.
