Agree Star Class was a more apt name.
It is more like PE on BA (which serves Economy food)..

That said at the right price I dont think you need any more for a day flight.

First Qantas B787 shows itself

This appears to be the first B787 for Qantas appearing on the Boeing production line. I don't want to infringe the copyright of the excellent Paineairport.com website which has incredible high definition images of the Boeing flightline each week. So here is a link to Qantas new baby:

Excitement.....for a millisecond!

Yes. Purchased by Qantas and leased to Jetstar. Nothing new there.

Agreed nothing to see there.

While the first plane had a combined Jetstar/ Qantas sticker I believe most of the rest have been Qantas, yet got a star on tail eventually.

Bunch of planes have the leasing companies stickers

Not so , on my recent YYZ-LHR-YYZ trip on BA in PE they served business class food. The main course on one leg was a very nicely prepared beef tenderloin dish.

And the competition (Scoot) going all 787 by 2015.
Scoot to be an 'all Boeing 787' airline by mid-2015 - Flights | hotels | frequent flyer | business class - Australian Business Traveller

Question is what does Qantas get to match Singapore's A350s

Surely it is obvious by now, larger Exec bonuses and more slaps on the back about an amaaazing business.

AJ would have you believe the 787 will allow Qantas to "leapfrog" their competitors.

A little difficult for leapfrogging to happen when there's no orders, only options.

Jetstar will get the A330's back and the 767's will be replaced by DC-8's that are surplus from a freight outfit in the Congo. They will have a refreshed interior and an Ipad so no one will know the difference. As the 737NG's are replaced by 727's the profit from replacing them with cheaper airframes will result in back slaps all round and the managers will be gone by the time the major checks and fuel bills come in. The Dash 8's liquidity can be acessed by replacing them with a fleet of 4000 Islanders as well. And the big news is that each A380 will be replaced by 460 turbine converted Cessna 152's with a pressurisation mod. The formation will fly to Dubai in the same time interval and a reduced fuel burn of 100 tonnes. That will outway the increased Tech crew complement of 460 per flight as well.

AoA,
Think you forgot the Galaxy C5A conversions.
Proving there is nothing wrong with a 40-yr old airframe

crew rest

Why would jetstar not get crew rest area / bunks on the 787?

Cos the way the a/c was configured by the genii...it doesn't go far enough for any tech crew to need a rest.

Anyone know where VH-VKB is? The rumours regarding a heavy landing and associated structural damage continue to swirl.

I don't know how accurate the data is but you can see here that one 787 appears not done to have done a lot of flying:

VKB had avionics issues that can be traced back to the manufacturer...specifically transponder installation damage.

There has been no heavy landing in her.
