    Difference between using points for Red e deal compared to Economy Classic Rewards

    Can someone explain the difference between using points for Red e Deal compared to Economy Classic Rewards because it seems confusing why Qantas would sell seats in Red e-Deal for points when you can get them at a heavily discounted rate booking a rewards seat? For instance this 07:35AM MEL >...

    Qantas Business Class customers bumped to economy in Tokyo

    Qantas is now behaving like Jetstar. We were just bumped down to economy for overnite flight from Tokyo to Melbourne. Ticket paid and booked 7 months earlier, discounted but still not cheap! As only Bronze status we got bumped. Will definitely never fly Qantas business again!

    Economy vs Premium Meals

    My family travelled on QF36 in both classes. Was a bit suprised the choices for the dinner were the same except Neil's leaves! I travelled in Premium and enjoyed the hot breakfast though. I felt that was better than the usual egg and bacon roll in J! Not sure what happened here.

    Economy 'Flex' - a bit of a con?

    A bit of a moan more than anything else. I recently bought a Flex Economy Return trip to Zagreb in Croatia, from Alice Springs, via LHR both ways, for the not inconsiderable sum of just over $3400 (H fare bucket, IIRC, at least for the QF segments). The LHR-ZAG both ways with BA. Towards the...

    Qatar Economy Class - The Very Good and the Slightly Annoying.

    We flew Qatar Melbourne to Stockholm last year, then Venice back to Melbourne. What was very good was that Qatar's total return price was less than other major carriers were charging just for the first leg to Stockholm alone. So choosing Qatar was a no-brainer, and their service was excellent. I...

    I've been looking for flights from Tokyo to Chiang Mai on the 09/02/20 (after 19:00) or early on the 10/02/20 (before 0200) and noticed the prices are roughly 450-500 with checked in luggage with competing budget airlines with fairly long layovers (> 5 hours).

    Selecting an upper-deck A380 Economy seat for 2020

    Hi all, Suppose someone already selected seats in a QF A380's upper-deck economy section for an early 2020 flight, unaware that a number of A380s would have been refurbished by then and the seats in question may not exist. Would Qantas automatically reassign that person to a different seat...

    Cheaper to fly Business that Economy

    Have VA lost the plot? I was looking to book some flight down from CBR to MEL, and the 6.35pm flight in economy was coming in cheaper than business? On what planet would anyone book the $629 economy fare over the $449 business class fare?
