QF is a big org...they can handle working on multiple problems at the same time... I think.I think there are bigger issues they should focus on, such as the state of meals in business class. Having been at the Platinum level for a number of years now I'm not especially fussed with the lack of PB and unsure why it irks people so much. More recently, my last flight with them a staff member actually did turn away a tour group who had lined up in the wrong lane, and as I was next in line it worked out great for me... but I was happy to wait, it's not like the plane was going to get away any quicker or they were going to look after me better before closing the door. Now... if there had been a glass of champagne waiting at my seat, different story.
The problem is that PB is a OneWorld benefit for Sapphire and above.
If you want to write to anyone - send it to Oneworld, and copy in Qatar CEO - who is the only Oneworld CEO who has the balls to call it out.I was thinking, why doesn't AFF do an official letter to QF on behalf of it's members and see if they get a response on why it doesn't seem to be a priority etc? There is a lot of justified moaning about this but very little proactive action...
Failing to provide priority boarding is in breach of the Oneworld DRD [requirements that all Oneworld airlines must adhere to as a minimum standard]. Two simultaneous boarding lines is NOT priority boarding.
