• Yes I remember them .... OK until they overbooked the train and put on a carriage that truly felt like it came out of the Wild West. Kind of like booking Business and winding up in the middle seat of 5 in Cattle (and they've run out of ALL of your meal choices :-)

  • Whatever the reason, AirNZ got rid of truly the BEST seats in the air ... better in many ways than their own Business Class. Oh well, there are always other airlines with better PE seats !!

  • At last !!!!There are rules and they are FINALLY being enforced. The cabin is for small bags, not a week's change of clothes. If you want to get away quickly at the other end ... pack light ! If you want to bring a full-size suitcase, check it in and leave room in the overhead bins for the rest o...

  • AT&T are absolutely the network to go with. They have recently changed their operational areas to include Canada & Mexico for no extra cost. Having once made the mistake of believing we'd just "pick up a SIM" when we arrived in the USA (like you can everywhere else .... including Russia),...
