QF is significantly better in y class than BA (i've used both).. more seat pitch, better food, better service and more aircraft are equipped with avod, i think. the service on BA tends to be geared more towards the premium cabins (the british are more hung up on status) where as QF will treat everyone with friendliness.
Quoting B742 (Thread starter): Ive been on BA many many times and really enjoy their service
well, if you've had good experiences, then by all means go with what you think is best, but i stand by what i said..

Both airlines offer a great product in all classes. I have flown both airlines many times to Australia and back. In my opinion both airlines offer a similar product and for me it´s really hard to say, which airline is better or worse. The best flight in my live was on BA15 2 years ago. I had two young FA in economy and it was really a funny flight and the long flight was really to short.

Qantas is better than BA in Y because of:
AVOD now on most 744s-BA's IFE is horrible.
Better food and much more generous amenities, 'snackpacks', etc.
Menus and hot towels (not on BA).
Otherwise, the aircraft andf service are pretty much the same.
Actually, the best Y class product on this route by a mile is SQ.
