    Downgraded without notification - what are my options?

    I know it's not a massive inconvenience but I totally sympathize with the OP here. They had a seat in J and because Qantas need to move a pilot from A to B, they get bumped.

    When flying into large, busy and complex airports at what point do you recieve gate and taxi instructions? Do these ever change once issued? Is all this info input and then displayed as a moving map? How do QF/VA SOPs work, if relevant? Thanks in advance for your answers.
