Can someone let me the dress code for travelling non-rev on Qantas?

Are jeans allowed?
Does QF ever upgrade (I expect that jeans are not allowed in the premier classes)

Thanks

Do you mean duty travel or staff travel ?

Quoting Miafll (Thread starter):

Simple answer? NO. Even QF's own staff i think now need to serve 7 years or something in order to even purchase staff business class for long haul. So if you're with AA or something, forget it. That and business class across the pacific tends to run full... remember this is technically the only airline that is "officially" offering flatbeds in business class, and the only one offering non-stop. It runs pretty full. Don't even bother talk about first. It's exclusively for the southern hemisphere's elite, and it will be full. As an aside, I had a friend just take it to Jo'berg and he said it was absolutely wonderful!

As for the jeans, somebody from QF confirm this but i don't think it is going to be as much of a problem as it would be in America because Australian fashon is a little different to American. Jeans from Milan cost a hell of a lot more than tweed coats and slacks do... That and it is spring in Australia now, and its in very much in fashon. Good luck and have fun in Oz.

From the oneworld intranet:

Qantas, not acceptable:

Tracksuits, jeans with cut off and frayed hems, designer holes etc. Singlets, bare midriffs, strapless tops/dresses, overly revealing clothing, rubber thongs or bare feet.Any extremes of leisurewear - including sweatshirts or T-shirts with questionable graphics or language.
Personal hygiene standards must be exemplary

When ever I've flown QF on a non-rev basis, the rep has said smart casual is a minimum and don't expect any upgrades. Unless it's operational staff travel or you hold a subload J class ticket, they would prefer to upgrade a paying pax. I've had a flight with James Strong, former CEO, seated in the non reclining economy row infront of me.

The rule of thumb is dress as if you're going out for a nice dinner with friends. Clean jeans, unfrayed jeans are OK.

Thanks

United might want to know when they started stopping their LAX/SFO-SYD flights somewhere in the Pacific

Yeah I got busted getting free CI ID00 more than 2 times per year, cause I was told that a CI employee only gets 1 free pass per year on its own airline! I felt so sorry for them and the poor travel benefits. such as they cant fly DL on ID90 while DL employees can purchase as many ID90 on CI. for CI, you have to be a high ranking executive to get the perks. I guess its great that entry level and up in US are glad to get the best travel benefits in industry. dont bother about J /F class on QF. just be glad getting on. maybe QF people cant get unlimited rides on their own metal per year? I may be wrong.

Sorry to deny this, but two good friends of mine went to Oz back in January as non-rev, via FRA and they were upgraded in C-class in two of their three legs on QF (they did FRA-SIN on LH in c-class as well).
He told me he was well dressed with a tie BTW.
