    Will Qantas enter Administration?

    Pretty astounded that QF/JQ still hasn’t added any capacity in June on MEL/SYD despite many flights already full or close to capacity.

    Fly Well. New QF Covid procedures

    Yes Queenslanders are free to cross into dirty dirty NSW and return as much as they like and they are doing so every day. If the whole political gamesmanship that’s going on weren’t so serious you would have to laugh. Given OOL is technically Federal property they could theoretically set up a...

    Fly Well. New QF Covid procedures

    How about between the two biggest cities Melbourne and Sydney which is still currently essentially one flight a day. Canberra, Newcastle, Coffs, Ballina. I’m including JQ as part of my thinking.

    Fly Well. New QF Covid procedures

    With the announcement of these new procedures and the Victorian Government announcement yesterday I’m surprised Qantas hasn’t loaded new flights for June 1 and onward already.

    Qantas online chat - customer service live

    Qantas customer service is utterly useless. I gave up on even trying to get anywhere with them years ago, but foolishly had a recent shot at getting a problem resolved. They were totally incapable. It really beggars belief.

    Qantas Domestic & International Business Class meals/menus

    Four flights in tha past fortnight. Meals barely fit for human consumption. A truly shameful performance by Qantas. Wines pitiful as well. Not much more one can say.

    Qantas 737 Refurbishment tracker

    Agree, but I'd hardly call these aircraft "refurbished", that's really just hyperbole. I assume next big capex off in the future somewhere will be a move to Airbus product.

    Qantas 737 Refurbishment tracker

    I cannot see how aircraft carrying the same old interior other than the seats, no in seat power or IFE and the same old bathrooms can be considered to be refurbished?

    QF website is a nightmare

    I'm impressed by the lack of functionality indicating that the people who develop the website must never use it! Example, after completing online check in there is no link to return anywhere. Bizarre.

    ALL QF's 330's to get lay flat Business seating - Including Domestic

    Same, and of course HNL must operate with 2 J toilets. Long standing contention of mine!

    Is Qantas in flight service slipping?

    CX has certainly lifted their game lately, QF still somewhat behind. QF are s middle level airline on service and they do remain a little inconsistent. As I largely fly OW i rate them about equal with BA but behind CX. QF food is generally bordering on inedible in J. As to some previous...

    Is Qantas in flight service slipping?

    I find that generally the onboard service and morale is the best it's been in years. There are always exceptions of course, still the occasional dud experience.

    QF website is a nightmare

    Re: Qantas website - a bit crook? At the moment? It remains a dreadful website. Come on Qantas this is your retail store front. The website cannot even remember home location for flight bookings, still assuming that the whole world lives in Sydney. How about the new amateur Dreamliner...

    Qantas 737 Refurbishment tracker

    I have flown on a number of 738's recently that appear on the refurbished list. I noticed new looking leather seats in Y but couldn't really discern how they qualify as refurbished. No in seat IFE and no in seat power. Same old overhead bins and same old toilets.

    First Cabin design workshop

    The amenity kit is garbage, what about that 5 cent toothbrush, the food is poor, the seat is not very comfortable, the swivel is annoying, the bed is not comfortable at all, the toilets are too small there is no arrival service or arrival baggage service, the F lounges are spacious but have...
