Great move QF. Would be good to see QF push further into SWP with own flights, understand Fiji may be on the cards with 737.
Dec 13, 2018, 03.24 PM / Qantas boosts Cairns, Townsville, Sunshine Coast, PNG flights
Vast vast majority of corporates (unless you’re C level) top out at business class, and I’d be surprised if ANY travel manager approved “Premium Business” period. With booking classes really reflecting First this is a hard sell, and my bet is corporate booking tools re...

Day flights from Asia to Oz ie ex SIN, HKG, Japan etc is a big minus for QF, I wish they could make day flights work.
Dec 02, 2018, 06.06 PM / Qantas shakes up Sydney-Hong Kong with overnight flights
Honestly at the end of the day both of these products are best in class worldwide for any domestic flight. Without a doubt on QF or VA up front you are getting a wonderful flight.

I just returned from family holiday to Hawaii in November and we flew on the Qantas 747 both ways in business class. Both flights were full in both business and premium (had friends in premium class) both ways and if economy class was not full then it was by only a few seats. The service, crew, m...

Do the VA crew still take up all the biz class bins with their bags?
Dec 07, 2018, 10.02 PM / Now Virgin Australia is cracking down on hand-luggage
Every one of these programs with every card changes over time. No sooner will you move your business away from Amex to someone else and WHAM, you'll get the "we're making changes to our program" letter from them too.I've done a break down of the Amex changes based on my typical spend (after we ge...
Dec 06, 2018, 01.00 PM / Alternatives to AMEX after April 2019
Flying with kids today is poles apart from flying pre-2000s. Every seats had stakes of entertainment or bring iPads and headphones, kids are totally self entertained. As for babies, they just sleep with a bit of crying at take off and landing, who cares. Every kid in F and J on my flights have al...
