• I don’t understand this. ANA has only staggered flat beds on both the 788s and 789s it uses between SYD and HND. The 2-2-2 config with recliners is only found on the 787s it uses domestically and maybe to some PRC, Korea, and Taiwan routes, but I’d have to check on that. I travel that...

  • Japan reopens to Australian tourists

    Feb 18, 2022, 11:42 AM

    JAL has continued to serve NRT-MEL throughout COVID with a reduced schedule. So too, ANA with HND-SYD. ANA has made some cuts to its HND-SYD schedule and to some of its still-up-and-running European routes for the second quarter of 22. Even with Japan easing its entry requirements, I wouldn&rsquo...

    GoRobin, I believe the July increase in Singapore was all Delta variant, as it has been here, in NZ, and everywhere else, pretty much. Indirectly, it is also Delta that has forced governments and public health people to abandon elimination strategies and to rush to vaccinate and then to start ope...

  • Good riddance. Terrible airline in every way except for that B777 captain I picked up in the Piazza del Popolo in 2002.

  • As a UA Mileage Plus member since the start of that program, I have done my fair share of travel on Asiana in all classes, long haul and between Japan and South Korea. The cabin service was always pretty good and usually very good in the front cabins, and the Korean dining options were great. Air...

    One happening right now, I think. Up to 85% extra, which means at the high end of purchases.

  • Getting from JFK to Washington

    Jul 05, 2019, 05:20 PM

    Will you do US immigration at JFK? Look, personally, I would never tote 40 kilos of luggage from JFK to LGA. Even without bags, that trip is hard work with more hard work negotiating LGA and its constant delays and cancelations. The easiest way is to hop a DCA flight from JFK unless you’re ...

  • A350. No contest. Very quiet in the pointy end. Great aircraft which leaves every other wide body in the exhaust of its RR Trents.

  • Skybed II on A380 is rubbish. I haven’t had one that doesn’t need Viagra to prevent sagging and/or doesn’t malfunction. So uncomfortable. Lousy IFE technology. Food not bad, service very unpredictable. A380 always better to fly than any other equipment except A350 and 747-800. U...

  • 12a is a great seat on the SQ 77W. I use it all the time. 11a has much better space for feet but these days it’s blocked out until shortly before departure.
