• I visited the new First Class Lounge in Singapore last night (Wednesday, 20 November) on my stop off in Singapore on QF2 from London to Sydney.It is certainly very fresh and 'clean', I like the light and bright feeling of the space. I did not stay long as it is my preference for this brief stopo...

  • You are missing one of the great US cities - friendly people, great architecture, clean air, wonderful food (especially steak!). Do yourself a favour and stop off for a weekend sometime.Happy flyingMuzz

  • I will be disappointed if the changes are negative to those of us who are serious frequent flyers as opposed to those who earn their points via third-party purchases (Woolies, credit cards et al.). As someone who has never sat on an Ansett (remember them!), Tiger, Virgin or Jetstar flight and fl...

  • I think this is a sensible decision as 7kg was fairly limiting. I would like to see Qantas (and all airlines for that fact) impose the said limit on the number of items people bring onto planes. On a recent flight from Adelaide to Sydney a passenger had two wheel-ons, a small backpack/rucksack ...

  • I have been a Platinum Elite Ambassador member for about eight years and think the annual fee is well worth it. When staying at InterContinental properties I have always been upgraded to a much better room (usually a suite) and quite often (~80% of the time) have been given access to the Executi...

  • Looking for new carry on luggage

    Aug 06, 2019, 08:24 AM

    Dave, I have always found Tumi luggage to be very good. That being said, I have not bought a new suitcase or carry on for over 8 years, so I am sure that there are better and newer bags and technology now on the market. I did see the advert for July luggage on Instagram and would be keen to hea...

  • Yes, there is a clearly marked Business Class check-in counter at the TBIT.I would save the hassle of the shuttle bus and take the 5-minute walk from Terminal 2 to TBIT - unless of course you have lots of bags or are infirm. There are plenty of baggage trolleys available.Happy flying!Muzz

  • Getting from JFK to Washington

    Jul 04, 2019, 08:03 AM

    I concur with those comments above, a flight to DCA (Reagan National Airport) is the easiest and most convenient. DCA is about 10 minutes in a taxi from downtown Washington DC - don't fly into Dulles as it is miles away. The challenge you have is that American Airlines doesn't fly direct from J...

  • Depending on the time of year of travel, another option is to go via Johannesburg. El Al has flights daily from Jo'Burg to Tel Aviv and then you could get the Qantas flight from Sydney.Happy FlyingMuzz

  • Qantas rants

    Jun 25, 2019, 02:44 PM

    I have been loyal to Qantas since 1992 - sure I have had some bad flights with a grumpy crew or technical problems (way beyond the control of a human - like dodgy IFE or a seat malfunction) but after flying on US carriers (both domestic and international), let me tell you the worst Qantas flight ...
