• But it will when Silk Air has been absorbed and rebranded as SQ

  • I'm not an expert on these matters but Singapore Airlines has been running ULR services on and off for years and must have built up a body of data about the effects on crew, surely?

  • A350 is the best airliner in the air right now, hands down. I only fly QF domestically, but watch the company closely. This is a good choice and Sunrise will be a great business decision if it comes to fruition. Now I want UA nonstops to IAD and JFK from MEL.

  • There can be no doubt that the QF business seat on A330 routes to Singapore is considerably more comfortable than any SQ seat variant, 777ER, A350, 787-10 on the route. Dealing with ones legs is a real issue on SQ as is the hard seat without mattress topper in sleep mode. The 777 is not a great a...

  • 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...
