By Nahrain John @karryontravel04 Sep 2017Most fans of the Flying Kangaroo were smiling ear-to-ear late last week when the airline revealed plans to re-route some of its aircraft away from its Dubai hub and back to Asia. The announcement was made as part of a revised five-year arrangement with Qantas’ codeshare partner, Emirates. Three major changes were made to the joint agreement, including the addition of Qantas’ direct Perth-London service as well as the replacement of Melbourne-Dubai-London flights with Melbourne-Perth-London. But the adjustment that really sparked a reaction from the public was Qantas’ decision to axe its Sydney to London A380 flights via Dubai in favour of services via Singapore. That’s right, Qantas is ramping up services on the traditional Kangaroo Route, and passengers couldn’t be more excited. Travellers, such as Samantha, welcomed Qantas’ big news with positive comments on KarryOn’s Facebook page. For Samantha, Asia is the “only way to travel up” to Europe… An opinion shared by Donna, Lorraine and Bro… Of course, not everyone was happy with the decision, like Hayley who saw the decision as a “nightmare”… While Lyndel frowned… And Tennille needed a little reassuring that she’d still have access to Dubai… Dee’s absolutely correct because despite the change Qantas guests still have access to 77 weekly services between Australia and Dubai through the codeshare arrangement with Emirates. What did you think of the airline’s decision?
