    Not much detail of course but hints of changes to economy. No mention of premium economy though.

    I tried a quick look, but evidently Marc Newson, QF favourite designer, let some things out of the bag at the recent First Class Lounge launch in Sydney. One of the rumoured things was an onboard "Spa" for First Class.

    Certainly the water variety is not going to happen, but a quick rub down for F passengers mid flight.... who knows?

    My colleague (tgtwwm) flew on Virgin Atlantic and still raves about the quality of the business class product including the massage - I guess upgrading the J to that standard is not in the plan.

    I am looking forward to playing Tennis on board ;)

    Nothing a quick trans-tasman run can't fix. We have plenty of water.

    Wrong shape and the economy pax tend to complain about the balls being bounced off their heads.

    Now, 10 pin bowling OTOH. Just need to be sure that each adjacent lane is working in the opposite direction ;)

    As long it is the lower deck(s) used to hold the water, not the upper :p

    Please send some to those of us suffering under Level 5 restrictions. I am sure an A380 can tanker in a fair volume of water when required.

    Or perhaps the water feature will use re-cycled water from other on-board facilities :shock: .

    As long as the water is not being brought through security in NZ, ie brought from airside, no limit applies (within baggage allowances).

    Melbourne is only at Level 3a restrictions currently, so water is not as significant a problem for them as it is for us in Brisbane. So the Ozfest hosts might be more in need of the excellent NZ wines and beers than they are for water :p
