Qantas Economy Class

Even in Economy Class, Qantas shines. New slimline seats are ergonomically designed, complete with softer fabric, lumbar support, adjustable headrest and footrest. Over 500 entertainment options are available on personal, seat-back touch-screen monitors, packed with movies, music, games and more. Complimentary meal and beverage service begins with a welcome drink, a choice of entrees, beer and wine, tea and coffee and even snacks throughout your flight. Qantas Economy Class is the perfect choice for value and quality.

Qantas Premium Economy

Looking for a step-up from the classic Economy Class experience? Welcome to Premium Economy and welcome to more. Priority airport check-in means less waiting and more time for you. Onboard, enjoy extra privacy for a more restful flight in a separate, more spacious cabin of no more than 40 seats.

More attentive onboard service (sparkling wine before take-off?), more space in your seat, more drink choices (including the self-serve bar!) and more chef-designed meal options too. Indulge in premium amenities like noise-cancelling headphones, comfort kits (toothbrush, toothpaste, eye-shades, etc.) and large cotton pillows and blanket. Ah, now that's better.

Qantas Business Class

Begin your Qantas Business Class experience with a complimentary lift to the airport. A dedicated Business Class Check-in Counter helps you breeze through the airport, as does Express Pass Immigration (available at select airports). After clearing security, unwind in the sophisticated comforts of the Business Lounge until it's time to board.

Welcome to your seat, if you can call it that. Qantas' award-winning Skybed is the ultimate lounger in the sky; a multi-functional seat that's perfect for getting work done, dining and movie-watching until it folds out into a proper, 6.5-foot fully-flat bed for sleeping.

With Qantas, Business Class dining and beverage service is next level. With Sommeliers in the Sky on every flight, choosing an award-winning wine has never been easier. Menu Select allows Business Class passengers to order before boarding and pair their drink selection with tasty items designed specifically for Qantas Business Class. Meals and snacks can also be ordered throughout the flight from the chef-designed onboard menu.

Entertainment can be any of the hundreds of programs on your personal 12.1-inch touch-screen system or a stroll over to the Onboard Business Lounge (on A380 flights only), an exclusive space in the sky perfect for mingling or stretching your legs. Refresh with an exclusive products in your Qantas Amenities Kit and get ready for your arrival.

Qantas First Class

It doesn't get better than this. Qantas First is the ultimate elevated travel experience, commencing with a complimentary Chauffeur Drive to get you to the airport. Once there, Qantas First Hosts meet you curbside to guide you through to the dedicated Qantas First Check-in Counter. Where possible, First Class passengers are fast-tracked through security and into the award-winning International First Lounge. Board anytime during the process using an exclusive boarding lane.

Your First Suite is ready. That's right, privacy is top of mind and aboard A380 and refurbished B747 aircraft, it's evident from the moment you enter the cabin. More than just a seat, the First Suite, although not fully enclosed, features an extra-wide rotating seat, many small storage compartments, a personal entertainment system as well as an ottoman, in case you'd like some company. The impeccable service starts with the First crew addressing each First Class passenger by their name and peaks at the quick turndown service when it's time for rest.

Sink into sublime bedding on your fully-flat bed, complete with sheepskin mattress, luxurious pillows and duvet. Designer sleepwear, matching slippers and gender specific amenity kits round out the experience.
