    It sounds to like the more they get the more they want. :( Qantas are struggling and all their staff want is more for themselves. Like the engineers union, they are asking for free Qantas Club membership for all its 1600 members.

    AIPA acting president Captain Richard Woodward said: "It's standard practice in the global aviation industry for flight and cabin crew fatigue management.

    "These seats are never used by paying passengers and are more accurately called 'crew rest seats'.''

    Where are the crew supposed to "rest" when family and nominated friends are sitting in them?

    The engineers were seeking complimentary Qantas Club membership for their members.

    It's a good thing they removed the WP Anytime Access, now they can let all the LAME members run wild in the now empty lounges :p
