• Used e-Gate on Wed at heathrow T2, all good, well signed, no queue etc, bu had to try 2 gates before my passport was accepted, ditto Mrs Tasclean with a brand new passport. The LHR readers mite be in trial mode, so expect the odd ‘unable to process, see staff’ refusal message..

  • One can complain about the regular 8-10pm crush in the Silver SIN lounge, but I have the impression the next door F/PPS lounge is rarely more than 50% full and mostly comprised of top lvl *A pax rather than SQ pax? Thats only a rough opinion based on a few walks to the Private Room, so it would b...

  • This is a very timely article, thank you.. Hv a LHR trip in suites coming soon which would get me over the Gold 50k miles for this year but there's otherwise really not a lot of incentive for Aust residents.

    'Rescheduled' is already a euphemism, 'retimed' is newspeak on top!

  • Did a round trip in F - out of Syd on A380 to LHR and back to Mel on 777 - mid year. Two of those legs were near-Best Flts Ever in 40 odd yrs.. better standard of crew on the 380, love the new PJ's, lunch ex LHR was outstanding, AUH Flounge an oasis of calm and good svc, AUH security much faster ...

  • EY can be hit n miss - great when the crew clicks and the chef performs, spotty and disappointing when not. How do you sleep on planes ?
