I wonder whether they will opt for a hard Owexit or a soft Owexit. As long as we donít end up with a no-deal Owexit, where QF will need to follow OW rules but will not have any input to them.

BA certainly made a huge deal of the last Concorde flights. The final takeoff from JFK was even televised live around the world. I watched it in Australia.

Qantas just let me know when I will depart the Earth

I haven't logged into my Qantas account for a while. I'm a QP life member, and when I went to my account I was informed that it would expire on Saturday 9 July 2095. I guess 132 is a decent innings,...

I still want to know whether the OP received free accommodation or not. In this thread he says no, but in his thread on the AA forum he says that he did. I'm confused.

Or at least a future member of FT, if you ask me. I wonder where he collected his FF miles and hotel points.

(And here's me, who worries when my 13 year old is home alone during school holidays.)

Thanks for the heads-up. Being able to pretend I am in the UK has its advantages. ;)

That's this evening's viewing sorted.

A long time ago that was true, but it isn't any more. The registered company name is Qantas Airways Ltd, with only the "Q" capitalized. Now, that's pedantry. :D

Except that there are no plans for this. QF will be starting a Perth to LHR non-stop next year, but there are no commercial aircraft which can do SYD-LHR with any useful passenger load.

Which is it - a "simple act of kindness" as stated in the first quote, or a bribe, as implied by the second? You can't really have it both ways.

Qantas Club access issue on Emirates flight from BKK

I don't want to make a big deal of this, but it's worth noting in case it affects anyone else.

My wife is a Qantas Club member but holds no oneworld status. She is flying back tonight from Bangkok...
