    Crew Movements

    Just wondering whether anyone knows how many hours do domestic cabin crew work on their shifts and the typical flying patterns they would fly? I giess there is no hard and fast rule which determines this. Also, I often hear the term "out of hours" when it comes to cabin crew - what would be...

    Upgrades and FF points

    Booked a cheap return ticket to MEL last weekend, travelling on QF 2 to MEL and QF 3 back to SYD. Before the number of points required for an upgrade increased on 1 January 2004, I used 5000 points to upgrade to Business class on QF3 back to SYD. Consequently, after checking in for the flight...

    Just checked the Qantas website to book a one-way flight for my cousin from SYD to MEL on Monday. Despite advertising $98 on the main Red e-deal page, when the availability came up, the flights were priced at $65 each.

    Change of Aircraft

    Booked a trip to BNE in January last week, and chose the BNE - SYD flight mainly based on the aircraft that I would be travelling on. In this case, I chose a QF flight travelling on a 767-300 rather than the usual 737-800 or 737-400 which seem to fly the BNE - SYD route thesedays. When I checked...

    As a Bronze FF, I travelled in Economy class on QF 1 from SYD to BKK approximately 6 months ago. At check in, we were allocated the very back row, Seats 75F and 75G despite checking in much earlier than the allocated time. When asked if we could have better seats closer to the front, we were...
