    No PE on either.

    I would expect BA WT+ to be substandard compared to QF Y+ given that QF Y+ is a newer product and is priced higher I believe.

    So much concrete so little time...

    I don't pay out of my own pocket for PE flights so cost is not an option, quality of service is.

    Y+ on Qantas would be a better product than BA WT+ even if the QF product was older.

    Aikicoops has stated it correctly:
    • On Qantas, Y+ is J- (Business catering with smaller seats)
    • On BA, WT+ is Y+ (Economy catering with bigger seats)

    I have not flown on QF 380 Y+, so cannot really comment on their comfort. Prices between LHR -SYD rt are about the same on both carriers but from BKK QF is 2.5 times more expensive than BA, so BA is for me.

    I have and I have to say that the comfort is far better than BA WT+ seating.

    I flew on the A380 to LHR back in Feb this year, and after just flying via BA to LHR and due to go back in October it will be QF PE for me.

    Unless someone can reccomend me a J flight on oneworld carriers that give great service at a great price.

    Cheers

    Well, there are always some anomalies in the system, so one can scoop up a rt J-fare ex-Europe from ~A$3000. Not a oneworld carrier but with impeccable service.

    You could try the AY business class fares, GBP2397 + tax and books into I with fare basis IFLEXEU. Fly AY to any of their Asian destinations via HEL, then pick up any flights operated by BA/QF/CX/JL to Asia. 4 free stopovers permitted, 2 in each direction. Never been on AY J myself but have heard good things about their product.

    Re: BA vs QF Business Class London=>Sydney

    If can get away from being tied to OW, there are some decent business class fares to UK. SAS has a business fare ( ex tax ) of $4560 and they also have options to fly to other airports in UK including LCY for doing London withou the need to endure LHR. Base fare is only $500 more than QF charges for Premium Economy

    As far as BA service goes, Premium Economy *is* economy with bigger seats; it is more comfortable than economy but no reason to expect the service to be different to economy

    AY and SK are both Scandinavian carriers with cold Scandinavian service. Seats on SK are not flat. On AY A-343 and MD-11 there are lie-flat seats but no beds. It would be cheaper to fly to BKK and get a cheap biz rt ticket from there. SK and AY will never compete with BA or QF.

    They are competing; their price is signitificantly better than BA/QFs business fare and the SK fare is not much more than QFs Premium Economy price. I know that I'd much rather have a slopey business bed to a PE seat

    With the SK fare, the SYD-BKK sector is on TG connecting onto ARN and LHR/LCY on SK

    Most QF services do not have a flat bed in business either

    The seating http://www.flysas.com/en/uk/Travel_i...seats&vst=true looks quite decent
