I tend to go with the best price, usually Canadian, Malaysia, Singapore, Hawaiian, Air New Zealand, Emirates, etc. whoever has the best specials on for the UK and USA. Have flown Qantas on a couple of occasions but find them expensive, staff pretty rude and unhelpful, and food is not that great.
I have not flown much over the past years,but I do like Qantas,for domestic travel.When I was 17 we went to England flying Singapore Airlines and returned with Qantas. I must say that the flight with Singapore Airlines was amazing!! The food was exceptional,as were all the amenities which the staff made certain that we were aware of,if they were required.It seemed that nothing was too much trouble for these delightful staff members,who made our long journey very comfortable and pleasant. I have heard that these days,Cathay and Emirates are right up there for this exemplary service when flying on long haul trips!
We always fly Qantas because my husband worked for them for 33 years, so he gets the staff discount for another 33 years, which will make him 92, but he always says he’ll be dead before then! If he does die before me, I’ll only get the discount for another 5 years, but by then I won’t feel like flying anyway! We also get very cheap cruises with a cruise firm for people in the travel industry, so I will then just do Sydney return cruises, (not P&O ones though)
Oh! miro_........don't think that Qantas Staff Travel privileged information is for release to all & sundry. Very silly to do so. There're such things as confidentiality agreements.
Would be possibly advisable to delete this post if you could.
It's not unusual for a Company to possibly withdraw benefits in a circumstance like this! Have seen it done........
