A review of the Qantas A330-200 Business Class cabin, service, and experience on an evening flight between Sydney and Perth. Get a view inside the A330 all-aisle-access Business Class cabin, have a look at the food served onboard and find how good or bad the service was on this 4+ hour flight.
The first of Qantas' newly refurbished Airbus A380 aircraft took to the skies yesterday complete with a new cabin arrangement, new/updated seats in all cabins and a newly designed onboard lounge area where First Class and Business Class passengers can relax away from their seats.
Qantas is in the process of sending out emails to its "Qantas Red" email subscribers in which it's giving advance notice (and access) to a 24-hour flash sale which will run to 13:59 PDT tomorrow, 24 September 2019.
Qantas is currently running a promotion in which it’s promoting its “Qantas Red” email newsletter by offering a discount off a Qantas international Economy/Premium Economy fare (departing the US) or a one-time pass to a Qantas Business Class lounge in Australia.
Qantas and American Airlines recently had their price-fixing enterprise/joint venture partnership rubber-stamped by the US Department of Transport and now it’s time for the airlines to start keeping some of the promises they made when they begged the DoT to let them collude at the expense of the flying public.
I was fortunate to be in Sydney shortly after Qantas had taken delivery of its first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner and, as Qantas was using its Sydney - Melbourne route to get its crews acquainted with the new aircraft, I burned some Avios and took a ride in the Dreamliner’s Business Class cabin.
Qantas has said that it plans to grow its North America network by starting up two new routes between Australia and the US. Once the DoT gives the formal go-ahead for the American Airlines/Qantas JV (a rubber stamping exercise now that tentative agreement has been given), Qantas will launch non-stop service from Brisbane to Chicago and San Francisco.
Qantas ordered the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner to replace is ageing (and fuel guzzling) Boeing 747s and, since the airline has its first Dreamliner delivered, we've seen a number of 747 routes taken over by the newer aircraft.
Qantas has launched a sale for departures out of the US and, while all cabins are technically on sale, it's the Economy Class fares that are worth a closer look.
Qantas has brought back a promotion I last remember seeing back in 2017 and it's offering travelers a 30% discount on the number of points required for Economy Class 'Classic Fight Rewards'.
