Now that is interesting. I'd not yet responded to BA's last as I was undecided about triggering a final refusal, so I might do so airily observing that "it's come to my attention that compensation...

I've just done QF93/94 MEL-LAX-MEL in QF F. I think it is still a "true" F class and much better than QF J class. This is my take on it:

1. A380 cabin is spacious and airy, and never absurdly...

I'm actually a fan of the paper towels being used in QF F right now. They do their job of drying hands etc much better than the flimsy cotton towels previously offered. I'd rather be provided with...

QF93 is usually (there's been a period this year in Feb/Mar when that wasn't the case) the A380. The business class seating on the A380 is getting on, and I regard it as a bit tatty. It is a 2-2-2...

Thanks so much. Now I understand that, I can change the itinerary to CTS-NRT/HND-TPE, which will give me MEL-NRT; CTS-HND-TPE-HKG-SIN-MEL and that will work fine.

Thanks again.

Wonderful TR!

We did Antarctica with Ponant on the L'Austral two years ago - the 11 day / 10 night "emblematic Antarctica" cruise. It was superb, and we're going to do it again probably in 2021 -...

I'm a conscientious objector to QF9/10 post the A380, and won't fly it. My next RTW will have QF2 connecting to QF36 on the Kangaroo route. I like the A380 for long haul, and I like F. I know some...

All other things being equal, flight arrival times really are a personal preference. I agree entirely about the QF29/30 timings - a whole day here was more valuable for me than arriving at dawn in...
