Could not agree more, GBRGB. Virgin just did Qantas a huge advertising favour by presenting and publicising a competitor's product.A 'smart' marketeer would refer to the other product as a 'competitor' product. And let's not forget, while QF has specified that WiFi will be free on QF, there is no...

.. let alone the 'lazy' (and disgusting) aluminium foil tray sitting in a Royal Doulton dish. What is wrong with BA? Don't they have automatic dishwashers in the BA kitchens? Hmm, I might take a second and third look at their metal cutlery in that case.Personally, had I been served in the above m...

@Taylor. Only inter-Asia. Hence, my somewhat cynical subtle take with the 'LoL' tag.

They haven't sacrificed the delicious satay skewers I hope! LoLSeriously impressive photography that makes each and every one of these dishes look tantalising - irrespective of what class you're in. Looks like the SQ-Gate Gourmet combo comes up trumps again.

Are you kidding? Seriously "Since when did a Terrorist a) ever want to blow up a middle eastern (i.e. Muslim) based carrier and b) If they want to, they are smart enough to just launch an attack from a non-muslim airport." Have a think about EgyptAir (last 12 months) or even MAS (possibly twice...

On a wider note, I'm not sure what is happening at Qantas lately?In February, I booked a SYD-(DFW)-MIA-(LAX)-SYD itinerary for late May. However, after receiving the original eTkt, I have received three (3) subsequent involuntary re-issues. One of those re-issues, had me arriving back i...

One could ruminate that it may have began on Tim Cook's Clark's last major visit to Australia? IMHO, whilst QF needed the EK 'solution' for middle Europe, it is still a decidedly one-sided arrangement. There has been no expansion of QF services to either the UK or rest of Europe, on it's own meta...

@tony,"I have had a gap for about 6 months, so with my 30 April anniversary date coming up, I'm only on 520 points."At 520 status credits, you should be receiving the 50 Bonus Status credits (or 8,000) points, once you earned 500 under the terms of the QFF Loyalty Bonus.
