JAL to codeshare with Qantas on Singapore-Brisbane route

8 Comments

Japan Airlines (JAL) and Qantas Airways, both members of the airline alliance oneworld, have started codesharing on flights operated by Qantas between Singapore and Brisbane. With the enhanced agreement with partner airline Qantas, JAL will retain Brisbane in its international network after suspending its direct flights between Tokyo, Narita and Brisbane following 22 years of operations.

JAL and Qantas first started to cooperate and offer codeshare flights in April 1986. At present, JAL markets flights operated by Qantas from Singapore to Adelaide, Melbourne and Perth. JAL will continue to serve and support valuable customers traveling between Australia and Japan for leisure or for work with these codeshare arrangements and two daily flights connecting Tokyo and Singapore.

"JAL will continue to serve and support valuable customers traveling between Australia and Japan for leisure or for work with these codeshare arrangements and two daily flights connecting Tokyo and Singapore."

Its a lie. Theres not enough revenue in flights to any Australian city after Sydney, so they dont care at all about the 'valuable customers' because there just arent enough of them. A scratch-my-back with Qantas at least keeps Bris-vegas in their network, though not sure how much thats worth to them...

I wont travel to Aus via Singapore unless it is on Singapore Airlines. There's no point to suffer extra time in cattle class otherwise.

Seems JAL is cutting back on many routes. They cut the direct flights to Bali recently. BTW, it was perhaps the worst airline and worst airline food I have ever experienced.

I wish all of these airlines would make it just one system to rack up travel miles! It is always a pain in the neck to have to try to choose a good carrier to your correct destination and try to remember if you will still be able to get the correct miles too.

I flied with JAL many times in the past, but the recent decrease in quality of service and food is making me steer away from them whenever possible.

United was better than I thought, although their CAs sometimes look as if they were in their late 50s. (Sorry!)

So how is Quantas? I never tried them before.

Clearly. If you had you'd know there is no 'u' in their name.

A lot of their steward's bat from the Paddington end.

Also, their stewardesses seem to come from the same school for surly attitude as British Airways.
