• Besides the alcohol and Sharia aspects, Brunei airlines will not take Israeli passport holders. Entry into the country by Israeli passport holders/citizens is forbidden. They have no diplomatic relations and the Sultan is very strict about this. There are 14 other countries that ban Israeli citi...

  • Most welcome for the flyers in Perth. As well as for the badly aging airport, which needs more landing/takeoff fees for desperately needed airport renovations, especially the surface condition of PER's runways and taxiways which are on par with those in some third world countries! A disgrace, sh...

  • SQ to fly non-stop to Seattle

    Oct 26, 2018, 09:56 AM

    Most welcome news - SEA needs SQ! Cathay Pacific, starts HKG-SEA non-stop April 2019. Two big wins! Delta dropped that route Oct. 4 in favor of SEA-KIX. YVR misses out, but they already have CX and QF.

  • With a new IST airport, and TK's excellent service and network, I can't see this route being a big seller. With BA's non-stop to LHR and many not wanting a really long haul, but are content to transit DXB or SIN to break it up. Add the political, economic and security instability in Turkey and i...

  • Qantas Perth-London set to fly

    Mar 25, 2018, 03:06 PM

    I'd rather fly east coast via SIN or DXB, DOH to break up the flight into manageable flight segments.17 hours in one sitting for me is way too long, even in a F or J seat. Hope they have a doctor on board. That or a gym. I don't see this route lasting, not enough demand in Perth - while the east...

  • My first Qantas first class flight

    Jul 20, 2017, 03:25 AM

    Changed T-1 to T-3 after international flight. Went very smoothly at QF T1 re-check counter and bus ride to domestic terminal. Quiet time in mid-morning, so no mobs to contend with. Flew SYD-MEL.  A terrific cabin attendant.  Food was roast beef w/caramelized onion sandwich which was ve...

  • So no moving first to the upper deck then?  I will fly QF 380 in F for the first time. From the reviews/photos/videos I think the seat has the right amount of privacy. I've flown F on the old AA F, and on JAL and ANA suites.  I prefer the old AA for the open space vice being hemmed in a...

  • Arriving SYD at 10 a.m. weekday international then connect to QF T3, one ticket/PNR with checked luggage  I have 3 hours to do this, but am concerned if that's enough given my review on other sites about the length of clearing immigration and customs/quarantine process.  I had envisione...
