Welcome to FT! If you are asking about use of an airline “standby” staff or ID ticket, you’ll have to contact the airline staff reps. We are not staff but only the retail consumers of QF products. ...

QF miles for Oz domestic flights can be quite cost effective. Eg SYD-MEL at off peak times and booking a few days in advance can work well. There are plenty of flights and lots of options. Also,...

As per above comment, there is almost no chance of being certain you’ll achieve your goal of an empty seat next to you (for LAX-SYD). If you have top QF status then an empty seat may be blocked next...

I have found dinner flights are certainly not substantial meals. “Light dinner” is a closer description. So, if you like your meals, a pre departure snack in the lounge may make whatever you get...

If you prefer to arrive in daylight then the QF flight sounds the way to go. You can book & pay for exit row seats if you like the extra room (I’d do this given the flight length).

I suspect that the Dreamtimes were planned for the 747 in 2x3x2 (LD) but were too wide for a 2x2x2 in the 767 so it got 1x2x2. And this proved very popular with solo pax.

QF says “safety comes first”. But they drummed into us that 7 kgs was the safe limit for bags (and therefore over 7 kgs is unsafe). Does this mean now that common sense and commercial pressure...
