If you look at the Delta Airlines/ Mayo Clinic study then vaccinated plus PCR at 72 hours plus Rapid Antigen prior to boarding means only 1 in 10,000 pax likely have Covid on arrival. With over a 1000 new cases per day in Vic/NSW who are then allowed unsupervised home quarantine why are we concer...

As a VA Plat and UA 1K this looks like a good start ( and btw seriously exceeds most US domestic F class, including lounges). If one sets expectations per the price point ( or vs Jetstar) then its a solid offering. VA needs to get its game on.

As a VA Plat I was often underwhelmed by the J catering, particularly the day that fruit scones and cream (fruit!) was the only offering on three consecutive flights.Even Marks & Sparks pre packs would be a better option.Seriously though, David this is a great suggestion that VA should look at.

Personally I'm a fan of China Air, but the Sydney Sky Team lounge is poor. Am hoping that Starlux ( the latest Taiwanese carrier) adds Australia to its growing route network.

A brave move when no one knows the Flybuys to Velocity conversion rates and onto Krisflyer going forwawd. When ANZ capped earning rates my personal spend on their card went from $8Kpm+ to $2K and after they restricted their travel insurance coverage last October it went to zero. ...

My agent had booked me on the first QF flight to YVR on 18 December but agreed it was wishful thinking. So we killed the booking before I had yet more dollars tied to non-existent travel.Interestingly, NSW could open now to citizens wanting to return home from overseas. They could return with no...

Fly Air Canada as its always better than UA and credit your miles to Mileage Plus ( I'm Oz based, but been a member for 30 years).If your Canadian destinations are West Coast, then Alaska Air and its mileage program wins hands down.Peter

On arrival into LAX, and once you clear customs, you'll find the transfer belts are outside security - no way around this on your routing. If your return starts at Toronto or Yvr then you'll clear US customs there and arrive at Lax as a domestic passenger. If you are ticketed and bag checked al...

Just booked GA today for MEL-LHR for mid April 2018, returning 1 May and transit times in CGK both ways are around 90-130 minutes. Its a case of picking the days when the connections are tight-ish.Niall, use Expertflyer to see the equipment scheduled for your flights and the seat layout, then us...

As a UA Platinum FF may I recommend avoiding United for these flights. The 777 long haul seat config is cramped at 20' width in a 2-4-2 layout when VA is 2-3-2 with 23" width. Look at Seatguru.com for the dates you are travelling to find the scheduled carrier config. If UA is pr...
