QF F is in reality a J+ product. The ‘plus’ being the seat. Everything else is shared with J except for the champagne (although EVA Air matches that in their J).I wish there was a way of easily getting an F/J combo via QF online for the QF11 to JFK.
With the refurb of the A380 , some say the new J cabin will be a better product while the F product will get a slight touchup. With the difference narrowed, maybe QF F really is as @lacuska1 suggests Premium J.
Even MH is canned the word First from the 4 seat mini F cabin in their A350. preferring to call it BusinessSuite. Their reasoning is that it is easier to sell it as a J product for a slightly lower price than a F labelled product.
Unless QF significantly improves its F food, drink and service then I agree, there will be very little reason to purchase F over J. That said, I find little reason to fly QF long haul at all anymore.With the refurb of the A380 , some say the new J cabin will be a better product while the F product will get a slight touchup.

If you are departing gate 9 or 11 at MEL, the Lift will take you from outside the First Lounge right down to the boarding level, bypassing the escalators. Note that this may not be available for USA flights.Boarding was a zoo with the F pax lining up with everyone else to get space on the escalator that takes you down to the MEL boarding area. Absolutely nothing was premium about that part of the QF F experience.
You agreed with the post Cossie. On the dress standards? Are you intending to wear your dinner suit next flight?
I thought only Y got the Bickfords.
I don’t mind casseroles per se but they do need to be well made and not just a pile of gristle in gravy.
Actually the worst F I had was BA where for breakfast I asked for a croissant and that’s all I got on the plate. No butter, jam etc and not even asked if I wanted them. Hardly an exquisite dining experience.
