    We were in the QF Dom Lounge on Tuesday night ready for the Red Eye to Sydney then to Lax, we were in for say 45 min then left and went down stairs to genaral areas as the place was full of FIFO Fluoro Slobs, sorry but that's what it was like,one bloke flat out on the children's floor mat in a dirty singlet and one thong, another with NO shoes on at ALL and most if not all walking around if they were Prima Donnas and the big I Ams, when we were down stairs 3 Buisness Gents sat next to us and one said to the other"well that's made my mind up tonight come the next financial year I'm with virgin,that's the 6 th time this year we have put up with that Crap never again, I said I agree 100%,some had dirty work boots on,feet on TABLES and chairs and in the 45 min we were there the FED police walked in twice. Come on Qantas get your act in order and get back to Standards, or do you like loosing GOOD customers!

    Don't think Qantas will do any thing.
    It's the $$$ they are getting.

    The Red-eyes are notorious for FIFO workers returning from their swings.

    I'd be surprised if there weren't similar issues with the VA PER lounge with their Red-Eyes.

    As others have mentioned, the airlines tolerate the FIFO's due to the corporate dollar.

    FWIW I was on 568 the other day, and it wasn't as bad as it has been before.

    As the OP is only a SG and most FIFO are at least SG (and most likely higher), I would guess QF would like to 'loose' (sic) the OP first.

    Please, would every one complaining about the 'Hi Viz Menace' in the PER QP stop flying QF immediately. It is not going to change. Stop threatening to move to VA and actually do it. You will be happier and so will the rest of us.

    All they're doing is accentuating the 'P' in QP.

    Do you think VA pax are better? Should I remind you the recent incident on the flight to Bali with the drunk/ drugged/ depressed passenger?
    If you want to take your business to VA then go ahead but please don't make empty threats and then book the next flight with QF like others do.

    Apparently it's much the same in the VA lounge - they too have implemented a one drink per person rule.
    ugh!

    Take a photo, post it to social media. QF would just love that.

    Taking photos of strangers without their knowledge and post them in social media is not a good idea.
    These people may be guilty of bad taste in fashion and inappropriate behaviour but they didn't commit any crime.

    If I took a photo, I would make sure that the subject was not able to be identified.

    VA lounge there in Perth is just the same. I was waiting for my flight back to Melbourne and one FIFO sat with his sunglasses on eating and drinking and belching as if he was at home. LOL... real class....

    At the end of the day the airlines only care about their bottom line. They turn a blind eye to these guys cause at the moment they are revenue to the bleeding airlines...
