A380 interiors, First
Lounges and other domestic and international product upgrades, and we remain committed to
continuing to refine our service style in keeping with that investment,” Ms

our training with additional modules developed with our new fleet and ground product in mind.
“We will be able to train greater numbers of frontline staff from across the
group more regularly,
including telesales, cabin crew, and airport staff, to ensure our style is consistent through every stage
of the customer’s journey.

the latest classroom facilities, this purpose built centre will also feature zones dedicated to
the airline's First, Business, Premium Economy and Economy offerings.

managers and staff from across the Qantas Group over the next two years”
