Australian Media = Corporate Tools Again

I was hard on the SMH the other day, now it’s time for News Corp, who are running shots of Qantas’ new Premium Economy service. See if you can spot what’s wrong with EVERY photo.

Did you guess that every shot shows premium economy seats WITHOUT seats in front in the sample shots, giving a false picture that Premium Economy is heaps roomy where as in real life you get an extra 20-30cm or similar. No comment from News, just the pics, just the freebie ad x 15 shots for Qantas. Worse thing from a traveling perspective, I’ve heard that with Premium Economy upgrading to Business Class with FF points is now going to be that much harder, as Premium Economy will be the old Business Class upgrade.
