* From August 2008 the airline will begin taking receipt of 12 new Boeing 787 Dreamliners, the first airline in the Qantas group and the first airline in Australia to operate these aircraft.
I really do not understand why Jetstar keep referring to international economy fare? Do they mean full economy fare? It is priced nowhere near any economy fares I have seen lately.The Age said:Jetstar offers to bring business-class service at an international economy fare and the class-dividing curtain alone ensures a level of exclusivity.
'Tis advertising/spin/whatever ...JohnK said:How can one compare the price for Jetstar *Class return SYD-BKK at ~$2470 ...
Same same.ColinP said:If we're comparing apples with apples, ie discount fares with discount fares and full fares with full fares.
And how many promotional airfares SYD-KIX for Jetstar *class for the same price have you seen since then?ColinP said:I've recently returned from a trip to Japan in *class. The 'promo' fare cost me around $1200 return SYD-KIX. That compared favourably with the Qantas whY return fare at the time SYD-NRT of around $1500
Sorry Colin but that is what the article states. So if anyone is misleading blame the writer of the article as I did not do any research on Jetstar *class seat width, not that I care to be honest.ColinP said:Stating that the seats are 5cm wider (JohnK) is misleading. In whY Mrs P and I normally sit shoulder to shoulder but in *class there was easily 20cm between our shoulders which would suggest that with 10 cm extra on EACH side, the extra useable width is more like 20 cm per seat.
At 6'+ I'm more interested in the extra pitch though.
The Age said:The 38 seats in StarClass - at 24 centimetres, five centimetres wider than the 265 seats in economy - are all equipped with in-seat power and adjustable lumbar support
