Qantas kills long-haul in-flight wi-fi; people want sleep instead
Qantas, already troubled with all kinds of operational and management issues, wants to focus less on forward-looking-profits-in-future services. Understandably.
Excerpt from Australian Business Traveller
Over the weekend the airline ended its nine-month trial of inflight Internet on selected A380 routes.
“The trial has demonstrated a lower than expected take-up of the service, particularly on overnight flights where sleep was their priority…Given the large proportion of Qantas’ A380 services are overnight flights, at this time we’ve decided not to offer the service across our A380 fleet on a permanent basis.”
