It used to be an in-house joke at Qantas. More of a reference to some of the female FA's exhibiting more testosterone than the guys on board. And to the lay over tactics of some of the crew in Bahrein!!
Yeah, same here. Ever since the demise of Ansett I've heard mostly bad things about Qantas here. Surely it couldn't have degraded that much? Then again they do have the market share now. A friend of mine who flew on Qantas 3 months ago thought the onbard service was great, in fact one of the best he ever experienced on any airline. It was a 763 HKG-MEL flight.
