Qantas Pub Sydney - no more takeaway coffee cups

At some stage in the last 4 weeks (last flew 24th Oct) the Sydney Qantas pub has gone "green" meaning you can now only get a tiny (halfcup really) ceramic cup of coffee before an early morning flight, not a takeaway one to take to the gate. Guess no more use for the skip app.

Means now need to start bringing a keep cup for flights if you want a large and convenient barista made coffee - one more thing to try and remeber when rushing out the door at 4:30am. If on 6am flight the Qantas pub has been the only place to get a real not plane coffee.

And yet they still hand out tiny little plastic water bottles in (some) domestic J because it's quicker than walking around with a tray of glasses.

I wonder if this will extend to all QPs, or domestic J lounges, or even international (don't know if they have a takeaway option there, never asked)?

Does anyone know if they will fill paper cups if I take my own?

The takeaway cups were still there last Thursday 14th November, so this must be very recent. Maybe this week?

On the subject of takeaway cups...
I have asked countless times (and left online feedback) if the lounges would stock china mugs.
So many people who want a bigger cup of coffee go for the takeaway option when they don't have to.
