Did you catch Covid though by having spirits in J? That was the issue on QF, right? ;)

What Mattg is not reporting is that he is now in self isolation for fourteen days as a result of consuming spirits in J. Not to mention he took his mask off to consume said spirits!!

As it happens, I am in fact in self-isolation now as I've just been to Brisbane. However, I had a covid test yesterday and the result came back negative.

So, there you have it @Daver6 - I now have proof that you won't catch covid from drinking spirits in business class!

Unfortnautly we know that one data point does not make a trend. Please take some more trips in J and consume spirits. You can present your findings to the QF board once completed :)

I agree that you need to conduct more research. Quite possibly the consumption of spirits in J prevents Covid. How else do you explain the negative result after visiting Brisbane?

No spirits in J on my SYD-DRW flight yesterday. A friend of mine said he's been told the excuse is that the PPE (masks/wipes) now take up the space in the galley. I could think of less important things to shelve than the spirits 😉

Not quite the same as Alcohol but these emails (and every flight seems to attract one) about upgrade bids always make me smile. Travel in style it says, and not a mask in sight, except for the fine print.

A recent data point, I flew SYD <>OOL last week in J both flights no spirits. I flew J SYD<>MEL with VA week before and spirits on both flights.

I find it pretty ridiculous that QF J is almost always priced higher than VA and they promote themselves as the "premium airline" but spirits isn't even available this long into covid recovery.

Let us know how they respond to your feedback.

Is bar service (Wine/Beer) really not available in J prior to 9am as per the Qantas website? Does this include transcons that leave before 9am but have flight times of 4-5 hours and cross multiple time zones?

Interesting question. I've done a number of early J flights and I know I have been asked about wine with breakfast service but I can't be sure that those questions weren't after 9am. I'm a sun over the yardarm person so have never taken much interest.

Currently on QF 932 which is a 737 from Per-BNE that departed at 0645. Grant Burge was on the cart with breakfast so for those going on holiday, you can start early 😎.

Grant Burge... I guess you CAN, but if you do you should probably post here: 😁

You’re probably right. In the interest of AFF, I also asked (and partook in a Cab Merlot. A Chardonnay was also offered and it’s currently 9:35am WA time (but a respectable 11:30 in Qld). 🥳. Very proactive flight crew on this flight so I’m quite pleased.
