• Review: Marina Bay Sands, Singapore

    Paid big $ for a suite, and as others have indicated service is impersonal or non-existent. Room was great but otherwise could have been at a Holiday Inn. Express check-in an absolute joke, goodness knows what normal check-in is like.Can say I've been, had a swim in that pool, but won't be back.

  • That still leaves us with crappy 777-200 on SQ214 and 223. Nothing worse than getting on the latter after a long haul into Singapore - worn out hard product and usually a second tier cabin crew as well.

  • Has anyone any experience of Telstra's new $10/Day roaming pass? Supposed to only charge for days phone is overseas and used.With some phones "leaking" small amounts of data, even when data is turned off, I'm concerned that I'll get wacked $10 a day regardless of any actual usage.In the past I've...

  • I've seen those sort of terms and conditions elsewhere, including airlines, and kept old cancelled cards intact just in case.That said, in practice I've never been questioned presenting different card at check-in, including Hiltons here and overseas.

  • Took the opportunity of booking introductory fares for ANA's new Perth to Tokyo direct flights early next year.Has anyone any experience of travelling on their 787-8's in J as a couple. Basically the layout seems to be designed to totally isolate every passenger.We would usually go for a cen...
