• I would exit Tigerair, LCC's around the world are struggling and it seems clearly Tiger is not winning against JQ and losing money so I would just exit that. International needs big decisions, stay in or get out, revenue growth seems ok but not able to turn it into profit - can they really compet...

  • How important is priority boarding?

    Jun 28, 2019, 11:20 AM

    If traveling international business class doesn’t really bring me any value, I either check luggage or if carry on finding space is never an issue. Flying economy or domestic business though with carry on is very different, I highly value the priority boarding as I don’t want to be ...

  • Domestic connections in any Australian airport are much better than any connection in US airports, is great to see ORD direct even if it is via BNE. Re the A380, seems like “the whale” is dying, it only appears to work on a handful of high volume very thin routes

  • 6-7 hours on basically an A320, no thanks

  • Agree with @blingwad, mattress and PJ’s go a long way, especially PJ’s on long overnight flights. Also, get rid of those big overhead reading lights, one person turns on those overhead reading lights in a darkened cabin and 2-3 seats all around them have to suffer with the light, to...

  • I just booked to Mumbai via Cathay Pacific (HKG) but not really any easy option with QF, other option that was quite reasonably priced was but longer was with Qatar Airways via Doha.

  • Could QF become an all Boeing fleet?

    Clearly from recent news of new routes QF must be getting great returns on the 787, talk of A380’s shuffling to SIN, HK and HND seem to suggest they are trying to get better utilisation/return from them (aka they are too big). The big questions are the Sunrise long haul replacement, what h...

  • I’m Green Card with AUST Passport, got Global Entry about 4 months ago, it is literally a game changer, through immigration on arrival to the US in less than 10 mins usually, and the TSA Precheck part gets you through domestic security easily, no removing shoes, belts, laptops, iPads, liqu...

  • If you have carry on only, I would exit TBIT and go straight to T6 and through security there, ignore the connecting flights line at TBIT etc and go straight to T6

  • Although HK is quite good to transit in, 45 mins is tight given you need to go thru security etc. if separate tickets and EK don’t check you onto the QF flight, I’d say you have no chance making the connection, even if only hand luggage by the time you get through the transit desk t...
