    CX FAs = fun? While I'd admit they're probably more reliable and consistent than BA or QF's, I find them overwhelmingly business like and serious. QF and BA on an above average to good day makes for much more enjoyable flights IMO. YMMV. :)

    It's a very pro-Qantas article which seems a little contradictory to what we hear from a few people on this forum, particularly that service is in line with CX. I might be a tad cynical, but maybe this was part of QF's current promotions and the 280,000 points may have been a gift?

    Overall though, it seems fair the way the other OW airlines are depicted. I notice there is no AA though. That may have put a bee in her bonnet.

    Its one person's experience on a single ATW trip. The thing I have learned from many, many such trips is that the service found on most airlines can be very inconsistent. As I read through the article I could understand how someone would have each of those experiences with each noted airline. I also noted that the author was both luck and unlucky in receiving both ends of the inconsistency. The thing I note most about my CX experiences is the very low levels of inconsistency. So for me, CX is a god bet as I have found they are least likely to provide me a poor experience.

    Agreed, CX gets my vote for consistancy (not quite God status, but certainly very good:D ). Through Asia they are my airline of preference.

    jasonja3 - any experience of their new J product yet?

    I would also concur on the consistency of the CX product - although on my five F flights late last year servic did vary between good and superb so that is not entirely consistent ;)

    Not as yet:( . All my travel on CX is regional J and a little F. I do get their current long haul product on a 747 occasionally, so I am hoping to come across the new seat one day!!
