Qantas airport lounges have a dress code, requiring “smart casual dress standards”. And, they enforce it.
A few days ago, a Joanne Catherall has claimed that she was denied entrance to the Qantas Lounge in Melbourne because she was wearing UGG boots.
And, sure enough, the Qantas Lounge dress code explicitly prohibits UGGs, stating that “…sleepwear (including UGG Boots and slippers)” are “too casual or inappropriate”.
Here is what is deemed inappropriate in Qantas lounges:
- Thongs and bare feet
- Head to toe gym wear
- Beachwear (including board shorts)
- Sleepwear (including UGG Boots and slippers)
- Clothing featuring offensive images or slogans
- Revealing, unclean or torn clothing
I see no mention of cowboy boots, but wear them at your own risk.
American Airlines and Qantas are offering some low airfares to Sydney, Australia. Travel late July to October 10.
Cheap Flights: Dallas to Sydney $805-$927 r/t – American / Quantas
A 10-day minimum stay is required, but Australia certainly has enough to experience for that.
UPDATE: Fares are reported to be gone…it didn’t take long.
ORIGINAL POST: On Qantas. Book it fast, will not last.
New Zealand is a beautiful nation, and these fares are for springtime there.
The internet connection is said to be 10x faster than average on-board wi-fi. It’s possible that such data-hungry applications as streaming TV and music, and even Skype, will be permitted in flight.
And it’s to be FREE (my favorite price!).
The broadband provider is ViaSat, which evidently will use a combination of ground stations and satellites to link up to aircraft.
Qantas (often misspelled as Quantas) has a low-cost affiliate named Jetstar, and it’s likely that Jetstar will get the same high speed internet after Qantas does.
