I would have thought that they would have this sorted by now but why offer flights like this. Searching for First MEL-LHR Return and here is one of the options amongst many.

22:15 London (Heathrow) Duration: 6h 50m 08:05 Sun DubaiStops: 0 QF8006 Your flight from London to Dubai will be in Economy Your flight from Dubai to Melbourne will be in Economy $6512 709,700
Your flight from London to Dubai will be in Business Your flight from Dubai to Melbourne will be in Business $7722 841,100
10:10 Sun DubaiDuration: 13h 25m 05:35 Mon MelbourneStops: 0 QF8406
Total duration: 22h 20m
  • = Flight Operated by Emirates

Now I appreciate none of us would ever book this but seriously why oh why is even offered.

All it does is confuse the issue and also shows a fair of $6512 that simply isn't available......


And on the way over this















21:25 MelbourneDuration: 14h 00m
05:25 Sun DubaiStops: 0 QF8407 Your flight from Melbourne to Dubai will be in Business Your flight from Dubai to London will be in Business $6528 711,400
$7328 799,400 HURRY!
07:45 Sun DubaiDuration: 7h 30m 12:15 Sun London (Heathrow) Stops: 0 QF8001
Total duration: 23h 50m
  • = Flight Operated by Emirates

Given that this is supposed to be showing first class why clutter up the responses with fares that are not actually first class or with a portion of the trip at least in First Class

That exclamation mark is one of the things that drives me nuts looking for flights on QF site. (That and the other gripe I have is when searching for flexible dates to see a fare in the top row and when looking at it, it turns out to be a J* with no luggage or something similar).
I feel your frustration.
 
Trying to access your favourite Australian websites when overseas only to discover they have been geo-blocked? Concerned about your internet privacy especially when using unsecured wifi? NordVPN will solve both these common problems.
