Blinded by obsessive nationalism?? Apparntly an Australian can't defend Qantas without it being a nationalistic act or patriotic!!!!! For gods sake take a pill or something.
Qantas has worked very hard for this award and deserves it. Besides the fact it has won awards in the past. The Avion awards for best in-flight entertainment 2 years in a row to start with so I'd suggest people check their facts.
"Yes they have improved, and they deserve credit for that. But they've conned the lot of you into believing the myth that they can do no wrong and the sun shines out of their arse."
On the contrary, when QF
does things wrong most people on here jump all over it including the rabid QF
fans. They haven't conned anyone.
"Their domestic product ain't half as good as it was when ansett was around, and they are still not offering the best combination of fairs, so, we may have a drop in service but the price on average still works out better next door at virgin."
What new A330's and 737-800's aren't good enough for your petite arse to fly on??? What the hell do you want them to do?? Install PTV's on all their 737's?? Why do people assume that they have a god given right to cheap fares everywhere??? Qantas is running a business here that needs to at least break even not a bus service. No-one has a god given right to a cheap as chips airfare. If you cant get one its because you didn't plan your trip with enough time to get a red e deal. At least QF
isn't like AA
or UAL at the moment. Be thankful we have a full service carrier that aint going to go bust.
"To those who can see through the qf propoganda. Don't bother inform those that can't. QF
is like a religion to them. Anybody of you who think otherwise are possed by the devil! Enough said though. My advice is, Fly cathay pacific and be free of them!"
Flying Cathay wont rid you of Qantas. They are a member of Oneworld you know and you can earn and redeem QF
frequent flyer points on Cathay. If you want to take a stand against QF
then fly the Star Alliance and SQ
and enjoy their service.
"And lastly, I do give QF
credit for it's recent long haul improvements. But even CO
has PTV's in 767s! For those of us that fly BNE
-HGK or the likes of that and want to buy an economy ticket(afterall why should we be forced to buy a bus ticket....its not like we are getting the $400 return airfares the americans are getting out of JFK
across the atlantic.... similar flying distance) and get a complete product we are still better of on CX
. perhaps its okay if u live in SYD
and almost everything is 744."
Why should you be forced to buy a bus fare??? Its actually very simple, if you cant afford the airfare dont fly them!!!!! Qf have bills to pay like every other business around the country. They're not some public transport system where everyone has the right to a $2.20 one way fare!!! Why do you people assume you have a god given right to a cheap airfare because let me tell you that you dont!!!!!! If you want that then fly Virgin Blue and be treated like cattle and be happy with a sing along of ging gang gooly, no food, no drinks and no leg room.
"But don't worry guys....soon we'll be able to take Virgin Altantic to Hong Kong and London!"
I've got news for you Lufthansa, Virgin Atlantic will be serving Sydney NOT Brisbane and it wont be any time soon if the latest reports from the EU are correct. Cathay is being held up in its bid to serve the trans-atlantic markets so Virgin wont be able to enter the Sydney-Hong Kong route until its resolved.
And lastly I lived in Perth for the first 24 years of my life so quit complaining about air services from Brisbane because WA
is far worse off with the choice of airlines.
