Doesn't Melbourne have capacity reductions due to lounge upgrades? All the same can't be that hard for them to work out what the flow of P1s is through the bookings and preserve capacity for them. One time in Perth when there were upgrades underway, the well attired overflow were sent to CL. ...

Alternatively, Perth Airport achieved their objective of discouraging Qantas from running a seasonal service that may have affected the viability of the year-round SAA service. Possibly more to this than the media plays.
Jun 04, 2018, 08.29 PM / Qantas scraps plans for Perth-Johannesburg flights
SQ’s prices for SIN - EWR look very attractive. I looked in an off peak period an they had PE at about $2200 and J for under $5k. Throw in a cheap flight from Perth and it looks better than any of the options via the east. A shame that SQ have decided PER - SIN does not need PE, so conn...

Jun 12, 2018, 12.07 AM / Qantas 787 domestic flights - July & August
Facing backwards just reverses the take-off and landing experience, so the acceleration is away from the seat on take-off and toward the seat on landing. Once you are at cruise it only changes any attempt to watch the scenery go by, which I don’t see meny people doing in premium classes. I...

Originally Posted by whoppersandwich I personally don’t think they will ‘replace’ many more traditional 747 routes as opposed to augment them until the true replacement arrives... Hopefully this means we see additional Perth - Europe flights (Perth airport can’t play ...
May 26, 2018, 09.19 AM / What routes for Qantas' next six Boeing 787s?
Is QFF gold that bad? Yes the second tier lounges aren’t great, but I figure if I am not flying enough to be P, I can manage with G privileges.
