    Pay as you go Trans-Tasman or Airline.

    Just back from Newcastle on my 1st Jetstar for a number of years, had luggage etc so took their bundle excluded food. Cost 392.00 return. QF don't do the route. Normally I have the time and go to Sydney and enjoy a leisurely train trip with the lovely scenery. The point is Mel-Syd would have...

    Worry about Hobart Security

    Yes, overseas you get all difference, but I would have thought they would have a standard in Australia. Do people realise that the amount of metal in a knee replacement is the same as a hand gun, no small amount.

    Worry about Hobart Security

    Two weekends ago I went to Hobart from Melbourne on QF. I am 8 weeks into recovery of a knee replacement, so I went thru and yep as I was told would sound the alarm. Not problem, do the scan etc, show them the scar and off to lounge. On return at Hobart airport, I went thru the right hand...

    Call of Africa - Cape Town, Babylonstoren and Okavango

    We were in Victoria Falls in July 2014 on a Rovas Cape to Zanzibar trip and loved the falls. We also loved the VF Hotel, just gorgerous. Mainly going back for the sunrise over the Falls as my wife is the Camera person and missed the early sunrise, so we will be up early this time.

    QF complain about competition but forget about customer

    I wish to thank RED ROO for supplying the answer to my original question. Unfortunately a Sydney flight is next to useless for someone travelling home to Melbourne. To allow for delay, customs can add 4 - 5 hrs onto a flight. Will stick to my new CX direct flights.

    QF complain about competition but forget about customer

    Ok, Red Roo here is your chance. Tell us why QF no longer had a midday service from London and all planes now leave within a couple of hours of each other at 21.00 - 23.00 hours.

    QF complain about competition but forget about customer

    Solved the problem for me anyway. Changed the QF flights for May and June to CX252/CX163. Travelling J. Saleswoman at QF didn't want to make the change and told me the changes were for operational reasons. Said I now had more time to shop in London!!!!! Probably do this for remainder of year...

    QF complain about competition but forget about customer

    No reason given, but I think it could be As all our planes now depart with 3 hrs of each other we ONLY need one set of staff, ie WE SAVE MONEY, bugger the customers.

    QF complain about competition but forget about customer

    We have had Alan Joyce complain lately about the competition from Middle East airlines flying to and from Europe. I am now one of QF WP people about to jump ship because AJ only cares about the bottom line and doesn't care at all about what the customer wants. Let me explain. If a pax was...

    Not a problem for me, I pay or my own company pays, and I don't have money to throw away on J domestic.

    Ethihad Business Class

    Can anyone comment on Business Class Aust - Europe with Ethihad ? They are $2500 cheaper than QF for April and am thinking of using them. I have already got my SC's for WP again and I pay my own way, so want to know if any good.

    (JQ) We've just launched three new routes between Australia and New Zealand.

    I run my own company, so why would I throw away money. Its ok for public service of big company accounts where they spend shareholders money etc..........

    Baby's death sparks Jetstar policy review

    I feel that Jetstar has been made to look bad with this one. I only have high regard for QF and Jetstar for their compassion in many situations. While the Black Saturday fires are well known, both airlines went out of their way for months afterwards. Having lost family in the fires I know...
