          Better travel under a falsie then.

    Do you need to ask for drinks? Or do they offer them?

    •  

      For alcohol they will always offer it to you.
      For others like soft drinks, you have to ask. If they walk around with wine bottles rather than the whole drinks tray, then good luck getting your coke.

      You're allowed to take off your mask to eat and drink. Makes the requirement of masks pointless.

      • +6 votes

        Unlimited drink = unlimited time without a mask.

          Healthy people hate this one trick!

          I was flying to NT the other week with Qantas in Business and the air hostess genuinely said to me "Hot tip, if you keep on asking for drinks than you don't have to wear your mask"
          So yeah, I guess even they know it's kinda silly.

        You're allowed to take off your mask to eat and drink. Makes the requirement of masks pointless.

        That’s a very short-sighted point of view.

        If YOU happen to take YOUR mask off to eat or drink, or just to generally be an ass and flout the rules, then the mandate that says I have to wear a mask, helps protect ME from jack-asses like YOU.

        A similar analogy - If someone comes up to me in the street and starts pissing on my leg, I would much rather have pants on than not.

        • +3 votes

          Going by the analogy, according to the official figures, only one in million people have urine and they are self isolating. Relax. You seem to be one of those angry people who enjoy telling people f*** off for no good reasons.

        How so? Do think people will be eating/drinking the entire flight?

      •  

        They just have to serve 70%+ alcohol.

    •  

      I wonder if they have free spare masks at the airport? What happens if one arrives for a flight and does not have his own mask?

      • +5 votes

        Yes they actually do and plenty of it upon entering the airport.

      •  

        Yes they do with a mask care package, it's at the boarding gates when you queue to jump on the plane.

    I don't know, I did … too much wine on a Sydney to Perth flight once and was unwell for about 2 days after. Flying and alcohol is best done in moderation. Even though it is not the ozbargain way.

    •  

      For that reason I rarely drink, even when on 17 hour flights

  •  

    Give them time. Sooner or later they might start charging for drinks😆
    Unless they got you hooked on some kind of subscriber program 🤑

      Huh?

      • +8 votes

        They're talking about the gradual shift of services from being free to being walled off somehow.

        e.g. Exit row plane seats used to be free, you just had to book early enough to get them. Nowadays expect to pay a few hundred on long-haul flights for the privilege. Heck, even selecting a seat at all costs money on some airlines now!

        Another bemusing example I found was Hilton's Honors program - thanks to this, you now have to sign up to get Free Wi-Fi. Better yet, earn Silver status for Free bottled water!

  •  

    Oh yeah that's great. Now you'll either just dehydrate yourself further or get drunk/tipsy far quicker.
    I'd love to be a flight attendant on one of these flights dealing with a plane of half shot passengers

    Will make the 6am flight bearable at least

  •  

    Note that refunds for cancelled bookings are taking up to 12 weeks, so not as flexible as it seems. Mine took 6 weeks (points + fees) for a cancelled trip to Perth.

      this deal isn't about offering refunds…

      Rod Marsh did hold the record for beer drinking on long haul. 44 tinnies I believe.

    Is this still valid for Qantas flights booked through AMEX travel credit?

    Hypothetically can I book a first-class ticket and arrive at the airport 12-24 hours before hand and go to the lounge and then re-schedule my ticket everyday till 2022.

      No.

    • -1 vote

      Less hypothetically, first class tickets tend to be fully flexible anyway so no different.

      Oh and people have played this game before, and got themselves in a whole lot of legal trouble for their efforts.

        Lyon Nathan the GOAT

    Has anyone tested the upper limit of how many wines you can ask for? I love those little bottles.

    •  

      They start watching you after about 3 or 4. But if you can still walk to the galley without any issue and ask nicely to swap an empty bottle with a new one without slurring your speech, they are usually happy to give you one more. Until your preferred drink runs out, that is. It happens a lot sooner than you think.

  •  

    is the more flexibility changes applicable for existing amex booked flight? in case anyone know

    Tried a few sample flights MEL to OOL, still showed flight change fees on the cheaper flights of between $85 and $99.

  • +1 vote

    This is great but the caveat seems to be yeah you can change your flights but if you do you're gonna pay the change fee or fair difference which will set you back as much

    The booze on the flights is back to make up for the lame lounge experience

    Did anyone get any cheap flights?

      Naah

    If the flight you want to switch to costs more, do you have to pay the difference?
