Qantas Airlines Business Class
Founded in the early 1920’s, Qantas is among the few private airlines left from the early days of flying shortly after World War 1. Qantas Airways is Australia’s proud national. The company was originally called the Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Services, but the name was changed to Qantas to shorten it. Affectionately called “The Flying Kangaroo”, the company holds its base of operations in Botany Bay, Sydney – flying out of Sydney Airport. Qantas is the largest airline in Australia, and the second oldest airline on earth. Qantas comes with prestige and heritage, and Skytrax voted the company among the six best airlines in the world in 08′.
Flying Business Class with Qantas Airlines
Qantas Business Class customers can check in 90 minutes before their flight, and make their way to the Business or Qantas Club lounge for drinks, or a meal. The lounges are spacious and offer an amazing view of Sydney’s expansive panorama. Qantas offers Business Class customers an express checking, and boarding lane to help save you valuable pre-flight time.
Once on board roomy aisles, a comfortable lounge, and exclusive Qantas Business Class member menus, and beverages are available. Qantas features a signature “Skybed”. The Skybed offers a variety of positions, down to a slightly inclined, almost flat position for comfort. Pajamas by designer Peter Morrissey, complimentary slippers, and no charge amenity packages are available for long flights. Neil Perry, a famous Australian restaurateur designed the on board menus ranging from breakfast, lunch, or dinner, depending on time of day.
Qantas’ entertainment features include on-demand programming featuring 60 movie channels, 200 television channels, 20 plus radio stations, 150 available music CDs, and 10 different video games, and sound blocking headsets – all to keep business-minded, movers and shakers busy; on short or long Business Class flights. To top things off, a personal telephone is located by your seat in case you need to touch base with people on the ground.
Upon arriving, the Qantas Business Class customer is once again offered express everything. Your first to exit the plane, and first in line for baggage claim. Shuttle services are offered to, and from the airport for select Business Class customers. Frequent flyer bonuses are available to those who travel often.
How To Book Business Class with Qantas Airlines
Qantas offers online booking, online confirmation, and online check in. You can also use the same options by telephone, or in person. The preferred option, particularly among Business Class customers is to use a reputable agent to cover all of your options. In days gone by it has become common to do your business online, or in person, on your own behalf. However, most people aren’t experience enough in worldwide travel to facilitate all of the necessary requirements. While things get very comfortable in the air, on the ground can be a nightmare if you miss important confirmation deadlines; or spend extra time in customs because you tried to board with prohibited items. Agents take care of all this for you; and make you feel at ease, from the planning stage, to departure.
