Qantas Flight Guide

Qantas

Qantas History


It might come as a surprise that Australia’s flag carrier is also the oldest continuously-operating airline in the world. It was founded in 1920, and only a year later began regular flights. In modern times, it is not a huge airline compared to many of the national carriers in other countries, but Qantas is the largest in Australia, with 143 planes in the fleet and 41 total destinations.
The name “Qantas” was once capitalized because it began as an acronym that referred to the service airports in Queensland and the Northern Territories. It has since been made into a catchy word that refers to “that Australian airline”. Today Qantas might struggle to compete against other international carriers, but as the main Australian airline, it has proven itself time and time again.

Qantas Flights

Why fly Qantas?


Qantas is the most experienced airline in the world, if time has anything to do with it. What’s more, it is an equal-opportunity employer that has gone to great lengths to create solidarity with Australia’s native Aboriginal communities, supporting not only hiring initiatives but native art as well, including the decoration of fuselages.
As per the airline itself, Qantas is staffed by some of the most friendly people on the globe—Australians. One can feel at ease with that smooth Australian accent and the complimentary offerings to be had. And just as other airlines nowadays have, Qantas has a frequent-flyer award program that is keen to offer incentives to fly with them. The program is titled simply “Qantas Frequent Flyer”. Passengers gain miles by flying greater distances, while special bonus offerings are available depending on the class of seat purchased. The miles can be redeemed for flight tickets (also in combination with cash), upgrades and merchandise. The program has seen recent upgrades that have smoothen the demand that Qantas offer more seats to frequent fliers.

Qantas Flight Destinations


Qantas serves all of the main cities in Australia. It holds its main hubs at the Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney Airports, with major operations through Dubai, Adelaide, Perth, Darwin and Los Angeles. In total, the airline serves 20 national destinations and 21 international airports. Qantas’ international presence can be felt on 5 continents and in several places in Oceania. Qantas also flies chartered planes over the nearby bulk of Antarctica for sight-seeing purposes.
Qantas fosters a number of codeshare agreements with other airlines. This allows clients of Qantas to multiply their destination possibilities by flying with other airlines on the same Qantas ticket. Qantas has such arrangements with 22 different airlines. Some of these are EVA Air, Fiji Airways, Airnorth, Air Vanuatu, American Airlines, Alaska Airlines, Emirates, Finnair, Kenya Airways, Air Tahiti Nui, LAN, Asiana Airlines, Iberia, Japan Airlines and more.
Finally, Qantas also owns a number of subsidiary companies that fly to additional destinations, further increasing the mainline 41. Some of Qantas’ main subsidiaries are QantasLink, Jetconnect and Jetstar Airways, among others.

On Board Qantas


As the flag carrier of its country of origin, and as the airline that has seen the most years of any other on earth, Qantas has a lot to live up to—and it does. One can expect quality service with complimentary offerings in terms of food and drink, depending on the flight duration, and in-flight entertainment systems that allows the airline to compete on a global market.
Depending on the kind of plane one flies on, there are different entertainment systems. iQ is one such system, and features purchasable Wi-Fi time, USB and iPod terminals and more. The quality LCD screens are nested in the back of the headrests, and can be tilted to one’s aspect. Programs include movies, TV shows and a dedicated Qantas in-flight news report, as well as interactive maps and kids’ games. Also onboard is the in-flight magazine.

Business Class Flights


Business Class is available aboard all aircraft in the fleet. These spacious, comfortable seats have a divider in between them for extra privacy. Passengers who choose to fly Business Class with have a dedicated television screen that folds back into the armrest. The newest SkyBeds can be laid out to a total horizontal position. Meals come complimentary, as do a range of offerings including snacks, spirits, and exclusive access to the Business Lounges.
First Class is available on longer flights aboard the brand-new A380s. First Class passengers receive extra special attention in their private suites. They also have access to AV ports and USB connections, on-demand meal service and more. Those who fly First Class can also expect greater bonuses through Qantas’ frequent flyer program.
Finally, on some flights the Premium Economy Class seat is available. These seats offer increased legroom and greater width than the standard economy seats. The meals and perks are not necessarily on par with other airlines that provide a similar economy upgrade, but it is a sure way to get more comfy on a long-haul flight.

Qantas Lounges


The lounges of the airline are called “The Qantas Club”. These clubs can be found in each of the hubs and focus cities within Australia, as well as several abroad. The main lounge is to be found in Singapore. Business Class flyers have access to these lounges, and First Class can choose to frequent the exclusive First Class Lounges as well.

Website


The Qantas website can be found at www.qantas.com.au. The airline posts special deals on its homepage, which is well-organized in order to provide quick links to all the necessary information regarding booking, flight status, the award program and more.
