Qantas Opens Doors for Their High Flyers...Car Doors
Flying at the pointy end of the plane has its perks both in the air and on the ground. Qantas has made those perks even more appealing with the introduction of chauffeur service for passengers flying in First and Business class. Essentially, the airline is opening doors for its high rollerscar doors.
Chauffeur Drive is the not-so creative name of the service that is part of the Red Roo's tie-up with Emirates. Premium passengers flying on flights of 12 hours or more will be able to rock up to the airport in a luxury car. You will even be picked up when you arrive at your destination to be whisked off to your home or hotel, all included with your ticket.
The service is offered to Qantas passengers flying to or from Los Angeles, New York, Dallas, London, Dubai, Santiago, and Johannesburg. So it looks like America is the big winner with this addition.
In another win for Qantas, business class passengers from LA to Oz will have the opportunity to browse the dinner menu online prior to boarding and pick their choice of appetizer, main and snack. The service is free, but does require 24-hour advance ordering. Apparently the halibut and fennel pot pie takes a little more time to prep? Currently only in trial, the Selection on Q eat may be offered on more long-haul flights in the future.
