    The Qantas call centre now has a different menu

    This mirrors my experience a couple of weeks back. Unfortunately, they did not appear to be very well trained and it is no wonder the wait times are as they are since even the simplest requests would have taken a long time to resolve.

    Qantas Call Centre Long Wait Times

    This is now just getting utterly ridiculous - rang three times today, after waiting over an hour each time, I got sent straight to the survey.

    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    I guess part of the problem is that even if the disease is mild to the vaccinated people who do catch it, they could then pass it on to someone else, who for medical reasons may not be able to be vaccinated, and lead to severe disease in them. That’s why the emphasis on being able to prove a...

    Qantas Delays/Cancellations

    @Mrmaxwell it looks like you are finally on the move as QF2 is now showing as Gate Closed. QF36 however has been further delayed to 02.00.

    Qantas Delays/Cancellations

    Someone tweeted that the delay to QF36 was because a spare part was needed implying there was an issue with OQA. Either way, there is likely to be a delay to QF93 unless that is being formed by the inbound QF94. Assuming all goes to plan and QF36 does depart at 00.40 this morning, there should...

    Qantas Delays/Cancellations

    Looks like there might have been an issue with the aircraft as the flight is now cancelled. This will possibly also affect the return flight QF36. Re-accommodating all of those pax is going to be a tricky affair given how full other flights are.

    Qantas Delays/Cancellations

    There appears to be a couple of disruptions of the A330 fleet today. QF82 is being operated by the delayed QF51 ex-BNE, which only departed after 6pm as it arrived very late from HKG on QF98 (which itself was massively late because QPF had to return to MEL yesterday afternoon operating QF29)...

    Qantas Delays/Cancellations

    QF108 PEK-SYD (VH-EBQ) from yesterday night (17 May) will depart today (18 May) at 20.45, 21 hours late and is due into Sydney tomorrow morning at 10.20 instead of the scheduled 13.20 today.

    Qantas Delays/Cancellations

    It’s now almost 1am in London, I am guessing QF2 won’t be leaving tonight which means another SIN-SYD flight will be disrupted this evening leaving QF82 as the only one which will be operating on schedule. QF84 has been rescheduled to an unearthly departure of 03.30 tomorrow morning due to the...

    Qantas Domestic & International Business Class meals/menus

    Lol... sorry, I do apologise. That was meant to be a little bit tongue in cheek. The strange thing about the water bottles is that on some flights, even when they've had glasses of water for PDB on the tray, they've asked if I would prefer a bottle instead. I guess that saves them having to...

    Were you given any butter with the bread? Or has that been enhanced away too?

    Where is the aircraft for QF84 coming from?

    Hi everyone Hope you’re all well. I was about to make a booking for the QF84 from SIN to SYD on 06 Feb 19. However, I noticed that there is no corresponding flight from SYD-SIN that would form this flight. I don’t know if it would make sense for them to ferry an aircraft to SIN just for this...

    China Airlines Cheap and Brilliant service

    It's not entirely clear. There are actually two toilets in front of PE, one of them seems to be for Business Class, the other is probably for PE as the amenities in both are different (Business has the Acca Kappa amenities, the PE/Y ones appear to have amenities from another brand). However...

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

    Before this round of updates, it already had the new UI and the content is exactly the same as it is in the A333, just with the older screen. If the question is whether this update included new IFE hardware then I'd wager a guess that dollars and cents won. Happy to be proven wrong if that is...

    Qantas Delays/Cancellations

    Tonight's QF467, the 1930 departure from SYD to MEL, appears to be returning to SYD. The offending aircraft, VH-EBD, had a hydraulic incident earlier in the week operating from SYD to PER and had to return as well.

    Qantas Delays/Cancellations

    QF430, the 12.00 service from MEL-SYD, was cancelled approximately 20 minutes before departure today as EBM was unserviceable. I was lucky and got on the 12.30 service, but I'm not sure whether they managed to find enough vacant seats on the remaining 737 services for the rest of today to...

    Perth - Singapore

    I had the pleasure of taking the PER-SIN leg of this rotation last year and after 2 or so hours on a flight that was absolutely chockers, I could picture crew and passengers going a bit nutty. It is really cramped and generally, a very uncomfortable experience for an international trip.

    Qantas Domestic & International Business Class meals/menus

    Not that I'm finding excuses for QF but I'm wondering if it is possible the galleys in the 737 just aren't set up for the more involved international meal service, which then means things just take longer because there isn't as much room to move around in and to place things for the crew?

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

    My memory may be failing me, but they've never actually officially announced any further reconfiguration of some of the A332 fleet. The supposed reconfiguration of some -200s is (for now anyway) a rumour that's floating around in various forums. Of course, we hope they would see some sense and...

    Lost earphones onboard - who do I contact?

    Hi ozbeachbabe Thanks ever so much for the information. For the benefit of other members, SYD have advised that the ground handler for MH are Toll Dnata and have provided a phone number - 1800 452 308 (for anyone who may need this in future). They do not have the number for a duty manager at...
