    Thank you to all, we brought an approved harness for the seat so that was never going to be an issue, in fact the never asked if we had a proper restraint. from Jetstar Cuddling with your kids is great but travelling with them sitting on your lap is not always the most comfortable. It’s worth...

    Special Meals on QF local/ international Flights

    Is it me or am I missing something and being to sensitive, as a 18 year veteran of the club , I am a vegetarian but over the last 12 to 18 months I feel that I am treated as a second class citizen on flights.

    Tricked by Qantas booking engine

    I disagree , if Q take 190k points for the booking which is predominately a y booking then I would call that fraudulent, whilst I hear what you say about reading fine print , my expectations are if someone charges you for what you expect J should cost then you would expect to get that. Why does...

    Tricked by Qantas booking engine

    Tried to book only Syd-LAX thought at least that would show no flights, wrong, they gave a business class availability via Melbourne or Brisbane. Same issue as Melb screen shot sows 192,000 points to be charged Dissapointing:evil:

    Qantas Club Price Rise

    maybe no seniors on Qantas board or seniors working for qantas they are all retired and forgotten. They probably believe us seniors are cashed up and do not need to get a subsidy, one day they may find the "nomads" and "skiers" have gone to other companies. Fursten:shock:

    J Class observations

    IF NM is right then is it only PJs that is different in J class service between 3 class and 2 class . Maybe interesting to see if our frequent fliers can spot other discrepancies. I did think the food service /selection also appeared better on the LHR-Mel flight but maybe it was a perception...
