Feb 03, 2017, 03.42 PM / Qantas CEO confirms Airbus A380 seat upgrade
The sooner AA LAX is finished, the better. Their Flagship Lounge in T4 is straight "80's corporate chic" haha.The buffet is sign-posted with a crumpled piece of paper printed from the front desk, and the food trays sit on a long faux-mahogany boardroom table in the former meeting room.For any oth...
Jan 18, 2017, 04.03 PM / American Airlines overhauls Flagship Lounges, AA lounge access
"I used the QF F lounge. Not up to scratch if you compare it to LAX or SYD even."I was taking you seriously until this point. Have you actually visited the lounges you're commenting on? If you honestly believe QF LAX F is better than QF MEL F, then you are operating on some completely different l...

Spoiler, for those playing at home:CX doesn't have A380's

Qantas A380 J-class offering is a disgrace from start to finish.Their PR machine continues to lie through it's teeth, and assure the public that their J-class remains a competitive product in the marketplace. Simply not true, and literally every business traveler knows it.Dismal IFE system....

Hi MRYJDrake,Regrettably, there are no lounges at Melbourne airport that you can pay for your parents to access on those flights.(You could previously pay for a single-entry pass at the AirNZ lounge for $45ish, but this is no longer the case.)There is a nice Café Vue in the international departur...

Tipping a staff member at the lounge... Yay, or nay?My automatic thought: No.I've certainly left a piece of feedback to corporate where exceptional lounge service warrants... But I just observed a gentleman tip the server some cash here in LAX!Of course, American culture typically dictates that t...
Jan 05, 2017, 04.59 PM / Tipping at Qantas LAX First lounge?
Perfectly stated, undertheradar The Select on Q-Eats system is a little tricky to navigate online, insofar as they don't make it terribly clear exactly which item is the online exclusive... It certainly isn't denoted in the menu list. You have to select each menu item one-by-one, and look at th...

Hi jdsamsara, The Qantas T-80 policy still exists to open seats that had been locked for higher status customers.This policy expands your selection options, but doesn't open the cabin entirely. Bronze is the lowest on the pecking order (and doesn't even have a corresponding oneworld equivalent)...
Sep 05, 2016, 07.23 PM / has QF changed the timings for online seating allocation?
Hi David L, Sorry to hear about your dramas... Your question is a tad vague though. What - specifically - did you encounter at Dubai? I presume QF was the onward carrier from DXB. Were you there on a short layover, or had you actually stopped for a break in Dubai? Were you trying to collect ...
