Must be an East coast thing, just tried a return booking PER-SYD-PER and still over $3000.

The Belmond Venice Simplon Orient Express is not exactly the pleasurable experience it's sold as. No disputing that the train is beautiful and the food wonderful. The British Pullman part from London to Dover is excellent, but the actual Orient Express part from Calais to Venice seems more bi...

Not exactly "family pooling" when partners can't share points.

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.

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...
