• The article doesn't mention alliances. Levinn above seems to assume the merged carrier will be in Star. But today's Korean Air is a key Skyteam member, and with one of its main shareholders being Delta, I would assume the merged carrier will be in Skyteam

  • Am I alone in preferring the original lay-out?  As a 'window junkie' I don't like new J seats which seem to seek to hide the window. And I prefer the old F because I could dine face to face with my partner in my suite. In the new suites dining together means sitting about 6m apart, separated...

  • AJW, the article does not say the move is temporary, whereas you 'presume' a return to T4?

  • It will be sad to say goodbye to the QR T4 lounge. And to T4 come to that.I'm surprised about the move because I thought T5 wasn't even big enough for BA pre-pandemic, with it operating some flights from T3. Unless almost 100% on-time departures can be achieved, I predict that arriving aircraft ...

    Sorry for bucking the trend, but my flight last year to Nepal in J was terrible. Awful food and cabin crew more interested in chatting amongst themselves than serving pax.

  • I've had similar issues. But now I have insurance cover through my Amex Platinum. The card fee is less than my insurance quotes.

  • Wear what you like mate, but respect the Islamic culture on the MH flight. When on airlines that don't give out PJs to J class, I enjoy wearing their competitors' PJs. Similarly, if cabin crew don't lower cabin temp to a comfortable level, I'm happy to go topless to make a point.
