• Have the 500 people for the pilot been selected already? Is anyone on here part of the pilot? I wish I could volunteer (I do a lot of travel to the USA). Can't wait to be able to use Global Entry. Flying into LAX is just horrible. Last trip it took two (2) hours from getting off the plane until I...

  • I totally agree with you Joe: it's time that Qantas overhauls its Business and First class catering, moving away from Neil Perry and getting with the times. I've found Qantas's Business and First class menus very average in comparison to other carriers, disproportionately filled with seafood dish...

  • If you're Qantas Platinum or Platinum One then head (literally) next door to the Cathay First Lounge. The significant difference is proper a la carte dining. I've been here a number of times and had breakfast and lunch. Far superior food to any other One World lounge in Terminal 3.

  • I'm flying from Stockholm to Sydney, via Doha in November. I've got the QSuite on the three of the four flights. Price was $3,800AUD return! And add on $200 for a return flight from London (where I live) to Stockholm.

  • Now they just need to improve the slop/swill served up on international business class. I fly BA business class now and then between London and New York, and I don't bother with onboard food anymore. I eat in the lounge, and then buy a nice tasty sandwich at Pret, fruit salad, some crips, smoothi...

You can pay a fee to upgrade to a higher cabin (e.g., from Economy to Premium Economy or Business Class).The good news is that if you do pay th...

  • Flying Qatar business class? One of the best out there. Blows Qantas out of the water in terms of aircraft, seat, service and food.

  • TIP: If you turn on the Express Travel Card option in your Apple wallet, you don't need to authenticate when paying for the tube/bus in London.When a card is set to be your Express Travel Card, it will work automatically without requiring face/finger authentication to pay for public transport in...

  • Some people seem to become deaf and blind when they're at airports and boarding their flight.I flew recently from New York to London on American Airlines. Gate agent announced very loudly and clearly multiple times they were boarding people who had Group 1 written on their boarding passes and rep...

  • Background: I've been Qantas Platinum for the last four (4) years. My current membership year ends on 31/8/20I won't have enough status credits (SCs) to retain Platinum and probably won't even have enough to get Gold. Questions:1. I've heard that even if I don't get enough SCs to reach gold, I'll...
