FYI for those looking to fly to china with QF
Really QF should be signing codeshares from their Asian hubs like HKG, rather than giving all the business to other carriers.
Anyway I'm sure the bean counters know 'best'.
I think this is good news. We fly to Taiwan and this means I can go direct get QF points and access a lounge. I wonder if they will create an associated lounge for those with qc membership to use in tpe.
I flew return J: SYD-BNE-TPE-SYD in Jan for a work trip to Taiwan.
I think was about $3500 in total, staff are attentive and friendly. Wouldn't say it was near QF J standard for the Aus - HK/Sing routes, cabins were a bit dated and felt a bit like the CX intra Asia J. No lie flat bed, just fully recline able seat, fairly limited entertainment options.
Still was happy to take it over MH J.
