    a330-200 seat

    The only reason that you might want to avoid this mini cabin is that it backs onto the front row of economy - so if there's screaming babies in the bassinets on the front row of economy you better believe you're gonna hear them the whole way. Also, on the A330-200, you're a long way from the...

    Qantas double booking: staff member took precedence

    Speaking as ex-QF staff the only way you'd be able to regrade a commercial pax is with manager approval. You cannot regrade a commercial pax to economy to make room for a staff traveller in business. Not only would it require multiple approval layers of people all doing the wrong thing, it...

    Gifts for cabin crew

Interestingly, JQ were actually one of the first low-cost airlines to do leather in economy, and now it's...

    Qantas A330 YBBN to LAX

Rumour has it that back when QF was reconfiguring the the 330's with the new business class (circa 2014?), management intended the 333's to be international-only...
