    QFF for Dummies

    Sorry...just having a poke. Perhaps should have used a :rolleyes: to ensure everyone understood the gist of what I was endeavouring to get across...i.e. the irony that, infact, something did fall off a Qantas 747 and perhaps they really ARE starting to fall apart! Joke Joyce! :lol:

    USA Visas Merged Thread

    Re: US with CRIMINAL RECORD, AUS/UK passports There was a case in Melbourne quite similar to this very recently (say...last 6 months). The person involved was let off without fine or convinction because the judge observed that the words f%#k and the C-word were so common in the everyday...

    Feedback to BA re recent inicidents on my flights

    Crikey! I'm having trouble getting my head around the fact that a toff in WT+ would actually consider uttering that word aloud....over a seat...that they stole! Don't think Ive ever heard someone down the back say that...about anything. What a rude [email protected] You should have tripped him over...

    QFF for Dummies

    I was under the impression exit rows on these 'bigger' planes weren't actually worth getting 1) because leg room is reduced due to the door and 2) seat width due to the AVOD being in arm? Is that not correct? Exit rows ARE still a good option? We are 5'10" and 6'2" respectively and the...

    Which is the best suitcase/luggage?

    "Too late" she cried. In there yesterday- Melb store- buying big on crockery (how exciting :rolleyes: ) and pretty much bugger all left in the Samsonite hard case range/s. Some of the more demure looking 'soft' option/s left but they'll last about two seconds. My Flite hardcase has been very...

    Qantas 'Limousine' Service

    Anyone used Qantas Drive? How would you rate it? What exactly is Qs definition of "highly appointed vehicles" esp. standard and luxury sedan/s?.....I'm hoping something better than an AU Falcon with 15" steelies. :rolleyes: At risk of sounding xenophobic - please explain :!: - are the...

    QFF for Dummies

    Thanks to all for info. :D Reason I am "chasing" the Airbus is because I was under the distinct impression it was a) newer (infact the common thread I have come across on other websites re: Qs 747/767 ageing fleet is that they're rubbish and about to fall apart! :eek: ), b) The...

    QFF for Dummies

    Thanks boys ;) (Mal, I could feign offence but...yes, had NO idea what CX was! :oops:) I note SeatGuru says Cathays Airbus 330 has better (more) pitch and width than Q - important for me being tall but what else? Better food, nice FAs? Ooh I have another question that you might be able...

    QFF for Dummies

    Please excuse my ignorance (I wont even try to hide it) for asking this question. I'm new, dazed and confused and in desperate need of help. I'm a QFF but...er, have never actually used any of my points. Fly Q perhaps only once a year:oops: the majority of my points come from credit card...
