Excellent news!. I hope I hope my jet from Sydney to Honolulu is one of the revamped ones when I fly in August and September.
Mar 13, 2018, 02.46 PM / Qantas revamps Airbus A330s with an extra business class loo
Qantas could also opt for the lower weight Airbus A330-300 regional that has been designed for the domestic market. No lengthy retraining of pilots or engineers. Saudi Arabian airlines has both that aircraft and standard A330 in its fleet. The regional is available now too.
Oct 16, 2017, 12.23 PM / Qantas eyes Boeing 737 MAX, Boeing 797 for domestic fleet
I have flown PER-SYD-PER regularly over the past few years and found the priority lane works fine most of the time. With the recent downsizing of some flights from the A330 to the B737 on some flights I've had to change my strategy. With the B737 and only one aerobridge in use I have to get to th...

When I was in Singapore last year I used my gold status to get one guest into the QF lounge and a lounge pass for the other. Maybe your friend, if eligible, could sign up for one of the credit cards t...

Qantas should have got another 2 A380s and retired those 747s.

A little bit off topic, I have aÂ feeling that the reason the...
