United's Australian flights do have the new Polaris seat already. It's excellent. Best bedding I've experienced in business class.

Big difference between UA and AA at the moment is customer experience, particularly UAs flexibility and customer support. UA mobile app functionality and 'agent on demand'-type services are streets ahead based.

Everyone ignoring the fact that the Fed Govt makes the call on foreign visitors, not NSW Govt.

Crazy to buy an international ticket anywhere any time. The airlines CURRENTLY operating into Australia still haven't been advised how many inbound passengers they can carry for Nov/Dec and it's almost October!

I just always opt for the newer 787 these days. The jet lag reducing qualities of the 787 on these long hauls are genuine. I'm prepared to forego a bit of space here or there to feel that much better, recover much more quickly, at the other end.
