    Possible Asian 747 retime?

    I do not see a retime happening. Given slot ands regulatory restrictions in HND, QF need to arrive/depart between 10pm and 6am. The current schedule therefore works best to maximise connections to the rest of Japan, as well as be tailored to the premium business market on the route. The schedule...

    QF increase MEL-CNS to 9xwk

    Being SYD based I am a huge fan of QF927 at the end of a CNS trip, so glad to see MEL is getting a similar flight on Saturdays and Sundays. Now, here's hoping QF may use some surplus 332 to upgrade some of the weekend flights to CNS in peak season (I loved the morning 767 out of Sydney, perfect...

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

    I would love to see the 4 International 332 kept and reconfigured into a more premium heavy (3-class) configuration to operate double daily into HKG from SYD replacing the 744. Something like 34J/21W/164Y. At a double daily service, total seat capacity of 68J/42W/328Y will allow for a doubling...

    QF increase MEL-CNS to 9xwk

    Haven't seen this reported anywhere, but it looks like Qantas are increasing MEL-CNS flights on Sat/Sun to two flights per day from Sat 6 Jun until Sun 11 Oct Schedules as follows; QF704 MEL 1220 CNS 1545 QF705 CNS 1630 MEL 1950

    A320 German-wings accident in Southern France

    Horrible news, particularly with so many children onboard. I am sure this hits close to home for anyone who has travelled in Europe. Thoughts and prayers to the families of those who were onboard. EDIT - the media coverage has been frustrating and filled with assumptions and inaccuracies. It is...

    Qantas Domestic & International Business Class meals/menus

    Couldn't help but notice the typo - should be Maggie Beer Ice Cream.

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

    Thanks for the photos! I wish they went with the full size iPads though for the larger screen size. Were there any issues streaming. Also how was the entertainment content?

    Tokyo to Sydney/Melbourne Business Class

    Any reason why? Japan is a route with very little competition, and BNE-NRT has no competition. From March also, JL reverts back to the 772 on SYD-NRT with a product which at best is on par with a Mark 1 Skybed. I think PVG would come after SIN/HKG. The PVG schedule last time I checked slots...

    Honolulu schedule improvements

    +1 (although based in SYD this does not affect me so much). Surprising that QF doesn't have any late night departures to cities other than MEL.

    Cheapest Location to commence oneworld Circle Pacific?

    Thanks for all this, appreciate your help. Is the starting rate from BKK competitive?

    Cheapest Location to commence oneworld Circle Pacific?

    Good tips, thank you. Taipei should work quite well. HKG doesn't seem to be as cheap as it used to be because of the USD strength over the past year :(

    Cheapest Location to commence oneworld Circle Pacific?

    I was looking at doing a trip soon that combines Mainland China, Japan and the USA and I was looking at oneworld circle pacific fares in J Class. I have some flexibility around this, and I was wondering given current exchange rates, what location would be the cheapest to commence a circle...

    QF to return to SFO?

    Thanks for picking me up on this. Had a calculation error in my original post, failing to count for YVR and SFO individually. This has been amended now:)

    QF to return to SFO?

    Maybe QF will instead of reducing the fleet to 9 refurnished aircraft, will keep the current fleet of 13 aircraft and refurbish the remaining 3 instead (assuming VH-OJA never flies again….it has done a few flights since its 'retirement')? This would allow QF to launch SFO and keep YVR year...

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

    Screen grab from around 1min5 in the promo video and 10 seconds in the shortened version - Oroton logo next to Old Roo…. Overall though it looks good and a much needed improvement for QF on flights into Asia. From the looks of things, QF 35/36/81/82 will be prioritised for International routes...
