• I'll have to give this another shot now it's officially opened. I visited recently and didn't think much of it. It was extremely noisy, as others have observed in the Community section, and there didn't seem to be any 'quiet' zones to seek refuge in. In the old lounge, I was accustom to walking t...

  • Hi Brandon - thanks for updating the article, it’s much easier to read now with the maps separated in the various options. Re Qatar - this has never been a viable option for me due to the horrendous layover on the return leg, 20+ hours to get back to MEL. Also the aircraft on the DOH &...

Towards the end of the flight you are now offered a small, plasti...

  • Hi all - I spent the best part of two hours working out a dream itinerary that included Asia, Africa, South America and to my surprise, I was able to locate available Classic Reward space in business/first on each leg.Unfortunately despite getting to the payment page, I received an 'unspecified e...
