The one tray service has received great feedback from BA customers and this is being rolled out to all QR flights 😜

Perhaps, based on the great BA feedback, QR will roll our Buy On Board in its Q-suites too, or that lovely paper bag with a Kit Kat and half a soggy chicken mayo sandwich, as the second "meal" on QR flights.

Perhaps BA will take on some of QR’s regional U.K. routes to alleviate pressure on their fleet?

It’s a cheap roller banner. QR do flashy, this isn’t anything much would be my prediction

Praying for a hostile takeover of BA by QR

It will be something World Cup related no doubt. Very unlikely to be Q Suites on NCL-LHR........

QR has been hiring extensively on their joint business venture lately for roles based in Waterside, so essentially QR employees working within BA HQ

QR updated a gazillion fares just now. My guess for the announcement is BA/QR codeshares on BA intra-Europe metal which results in more possible routings.
Also JU, AZ and EI are allowed in Europe. The routing via ICN might be interesting.

Old QR LON-BKK fare:

Any thoughts on if this would affect QR avios bonus earnings?

Probably a similar codeshare arrangement that they have with Finnair.

QR currently does not have QR codeshare numbers on AY intra-Europe flights like HEL-LHR, HEL-ARN or HEL-TMP (just checked).
If my assumption is right QR will have their codeshare on BA intra-Europe metal such as LHR-BER and LHR-AMS.

I don't see that codeshare setup for AY as of now and AY is prominently left out of the fares filed this night.
For BA/QR on the other hand I see QR flight numbers being allowed from LHR to virtually all QR Europe gateways.
Note that just because it allows QR (e.g. LHR-BA/QR-BER-QR-DOH) doesn't mean that it can be booked. There's no codeshares visible on EF at this point and the booking class mapping for the QR fares I checked is also incomplete.
