Why make it only so slightly bigger? It looks odd.
Usually, rounded characters of a typeface tends to be slightly bigger than others characters. It's just a visual compensation for the rounded shape. If you give to the "Q" the same height as the "A", the "Q" will look slightly smaller.
I like the refresh in the Qantas livery, but I don't like the typeface that they have choosen for their slogan. From certain distance the "a" looks like a "o" and looks like "Austrolio".
Just my 2 cents
