Glad I don't travel QF at this time of year:
<<up another flight of stairs with bung knees and suitcases. >>
Suitcases?? Therein lies the problem.
This is why LCC are very tough on Carry On and leave on time. But back to Qantas.
<<<It was not the young and agile they were sending via the stairs on our flight quite a number of elderly were relegated to stair duty... Turnaround time.... still half an hour.>>
IME when asked to board by backstairs it has been because I have been allocated a seat at the back of the plane ie- "passengers 1-15 to front- others to back" - and if people with bung knees and suitcases were CHOOSING stairs then they were bit daft weren't they??? I dont think you can blame the airline for that!
And I would have thought half an hour turnaround was actually pretty good anyway . Haven't really experienced less than that anywhere.
