Phily, I think there are really only 2 versions, QF just treat the 6 ERs as different to the 3 non-ERs that have the Skybed2. So those 9 aircraft have the single J seats in row 5. The one remaining 747 with F is the second seating version and is the only 747 that does not have the single J seats.

Yes I know of ACCC issue, however, in the current situation, there is no competition on PER-HKG direct because there is only one operator. If you consider indirect services there is plenty of competition and this would continue if QF and CX cooperated to provide a better customer service on the ...
Oct 31, 2017, 01.48 PM / Qantas almost certainly won't order all 45 Boeing 787s
The Perth market would be well served by Qantas cooperating with Cathay and JAL for Perth-Hong Kong and Tokyo. For example a daily service for each of QF and CX at different times to Hong Kong would be an improvement over the current schedule. There are several reasons this won’t happen,...

AJ is selling Qantas’s vision of expanded direct services to Eu and Nth America. Aside from the question of “with a full passenger load” it is achievable in the next 5 years. JB doesn’t have clear direction for VA international, so he is talking about what might happ...

Qantas could fix the PE legroom issue by removing one row of Y from the forward cabin and the distribute the 32inches across PE and the remaining rows of Y. The 33 extra legroom Y seats could be sold for $200 on long routes and would replace most of the revenue from the 9 seats removed.

23/3/18 will be the second last A380 QF10 before the change to 787 via Perth. If WiFi is to be fitted to the A380s, I would expect that the pending refurb would be the best opportunity for that work. (Not by March 1.

Travel cards are useful if you want to lock in an exchange rate for future travel, but otherwise I prefer to use an FX fee free credit card. I still get points and I pay it into credit before I leave, so there are no interest charges on cash withdrawals.
Nov 15, 2017, 11.18 PM / Is a Travel Money Card worth it
PE on points is 75% of the points for J if flying QF, 80% on partners such as CX and JAL. Clearly PE is better than Y, but J is far better value for your points. Your biggest problem will be getting 4 classic award seats on the same flight, unless you are a QFF P1.If you are looking at return tra...

Yes 2 A330-200s still have Skybed 1. They were not included in the fleet upgrade because the plan was to return them at the end of their leases, but the plan changed. I thought there had been talk of upgrading them sometime in the near future.
Nov 10, 2017, 12.40 AM / Does Qantas still have A330s with the old Skybed?
Which airline ? You won't get PE on BNE-LHR end-to-end with Qantas or any of the ME3. Most certainly will with Cathay and I expect on some Singapore, depending on their aircraft on BNE-SIN.
