QF used to fly 747s from PER-JNB as a tag on from Sydney in the 90s once a week. They flew PER-JNB via Harare in Zimbabwe once weekly also - I flew this route once 20 odd years ago!

"Chris Chamberlin travelled to London as a guest of Malaysia Airlines."I'm sure initially anyway it was related to this and the crew wanting to leave a good impression on the guest/reviewer.

I wonder how crew (cabin and pilots) rotations will work? Will they need 3 x 8hr shifts? Is in-flight rest considered good enough to work that long on a flight? Anyone know how it works on the Perth-London route? The 787 has 6 beds for cabin crew and 2 for pilot rest which is seemingly good enoug...

I'm one year into my FTPP and just hit 50%. I don't live in Australia so logistically it becomes more challenging - work permits, visas and the nearest Australian consular is 5 hours away! With a standard passport this process will be yearly exercise for me now.

Citi PremierMiles Visa is good here. Citi points don't expire and can be transferred to a number of airline programs. Fairly decent earn rates compared to others on the market. Plus its eligible for those on an Employment Pass, which some local cards are not.

Hit and miss - I frequently visit the lounge and now know to ask them for your first drink when you walk in, and to let them know you'll be looking for a top-up in around 20 mins or so. Some of the staff are proactive and will come and ask, but its rare. Having said that, not many lounges (if any...

Living in Asia, its great to fly overnight. You can finish your day here, sleep on the plane and enjoy a full day back in Aus. Particularly for the short trips home it works great - but either way you then lose it on the other end with a day flight back to Asia. If the Asia to Aus flights were da...

Just ordered replacements. You can get a set each year on request, if you stay at the same level.
