    Extra Legroom Seats no longer free for WP on Dom

    Beware what you ask for.....This thread started when I was told I had to pay for the exit row on the A330. I mentioned looking forward to the return of the 738's on the transcontinental. Todays flight turned out to be such after a breakdown with a 330! Now if they pulled the 787's from Jetsar...

    Extra Legroom Seats no longer free for WP on Dom

    Well it confused me as I was able to choose 23B on the Mel-Per on Monday but not on the return! I actually prefer 4C on the 737 to (getting tired) A330's so roll on the downturn and 737 substitution! If I was younger I would move my loyalty to VA for the much better programme, service and...

    Extra Legroom Seats no longer free for WP on Dom

    Just tried to change to 23K on a Per-Mel flight on Friday and it wants to charge me $60. So phoned QF and they tell me there has been a change on 18th Aug and these are no longer free for WP. Another lost reason to fly QF. I only fly them because I can justify getting a seat I can work at in the...

    How Do I change a QATAR flight to QFF Points?

    Thanks I tried that but couldn't change it. I did however do what I should have done initially. Went to the Qatar site and you can change easily with a drop down box! Next time must not assume everything is difficult!! Thanks:oops:

    How Do I change a QATAR flight to QFF Points?

    I have a Europe trip booked for Friday but the company booking system picked up my Qatar FF. I would prefer to credit to QFF. Anyone know a simple way to change it? Thanks

    Odd Check-in Experience

    No...I thought they would sort it out at the airport....And they did by moving us to another flight. I always thought that points bookings were non moveable.

    Odd Check-in Experience

    Flew Per-Mel yesterday, with Mrs RM on points. Had the bookings linked and a couple of days earlier had been in the lounge and asked the desk to move seat allocation for the flight. All done apparently but when looking on line the bookings had not moved and Mrs RM seat was shown as available to...

    Priority Boarding Line Etiquitte

    I recently sent QF a long email about priority boarding and how it is not working! I made suggestions and pointed out the places I find worst, Wellington in particular. I gave up bothering a while ago and just join any queue, usually the shortest one which is often not the PB! I like to put my...

    ZK-ZQD - airbags in seatbelt

    I had 4A on the morning Mel-Wel flight, QF37 yesterday. the 3rd sector for this new addition according to the Captain. The seatbelt is interesting but I found it confortable even fastened during cruising. Just not sure how it works in a 900km/h crash!!:?:

    QF10 LHR/SIN 6/3/10, deceased pax

    All the staff were backwards & forwards even on the upper deck. So I suspect that they spent quite a while trying to save the pax. I have a feeling that they didn't have enough staff to serve everyone and it was better to cancel all service than have the complaints about some getting served and...

    QF10 LHR/SIN 6/3/10, deceased pax

    I just found this thread. I was on this flight in Business. They did divert the flight to Bangkok and about 30 minutes out changed it back to Singapore. We didn't know exactly what was happening till landing and the Captain asked everyone to remain in their seat whilst the deceased was...

    Karratha - another horror story, whats up with this airport?

    Interesting that of all the airports both main and regional I travel through during a year, Karratha is the one where I'am consistently asked for photo ID. The only other time I remember is once at Port Hedland, perhaps they were on a temp transfer! Incidently, this is written in the lounge at...

    Surly Qantas Staff

    I put myself through college selling cameras for a chain store. I learnt there that you can be treated like an animal by some people. You get over it! I've been travelling for work now for over 35years on and off and have no illusions about glamour or any other luxuries. All I want is efficient...

    Surly Qantas Staff

    I basically travel for work about every second week. Mostly dom but sometimes Int. I find that Qantas staff just don't care! I have long given up expecting service from a Hosty on a QF flight. They seem to be dragging themselves down to the US standards and it would not really cost anymore to QF...

    Surly Qantas Staff

    When I went into the queue there was no one in either queue but all three desks busy. I decided to go to the F/J one as I thought they might be a bit more responsive to a request to move me to the earlier flight. There was time for my single check-in to be processed. I waited and the rest of...

    Surly Qantas Staff

    Probably correct! It is about expectation. If I'm standing in the business queue and the desk is tied up then I would expect the 'unwashed' desks to alternate to keep the lines even. In this case my expectation was not met and when I asked if they would alternate the service I was told very...

    Surly Qantas Staff

    Probably won't bother, it never gets any response other than an apology from them. Nothing actually changes! And the flight was delayed an hour so I'm really happy!

    Surly Qantas Staff

    I suppose this is a bit of a cough! I presume everyone has noticed that Qantas service has plummeted to new depths. The staff just don't care! just got in from Wellington on QF48 and got to the transfer desk just in time to shift to an earlier Melbourne flight...except that I went to the...

    Qantas Long Haul-Sit at the back of the bus?

    Thanks everyone for the advice. I phoned Qantas and pre-booked this afternoon. Because my wife has no status they couldn't seat us in 35, where I was prebooked so we got 40HJ on the outbound and 40DE on the return. Now I need to try BA for the Singapore-London section. I think I can pre-book...

    Qantas Long Haul-Sit at the back of the bus?

    The benefits of the 2-seat rear rows is most noticeable if the flight is full. Otherwise having a spare seat between you or adjacent to you can be better. But you need to guess how full the flight is going to be..... Thanks NM. My limited experience with Qantas long haul is that there are very...
