    Yes about 50% 737 trans-Tasman have phantom ife, and 50% shorter selection list. Whereas bne-wlg (on e190) has no ife at all. Need to make sure your device is charged up as also no power source onboard available to pax.

    Qantas bus gates in Sydney

    Qantas Platinum One experiences?

    In my case the lack of invites isn't related to lack of many years of high sc earn but rather because I'm in the eastern isles.
