• @Taylor, It's not that SQ is Sydney-centric. This is a First Class lounge review (not Business Class.) There is also an SQ First Class lounge in Melbourne, because only SYD and MEL have a First Class cabin operation. The fact that SQ (and family) flies from Cairns, Darwin, Perth, Adelaide, Me...

  • SQ to fly non-stop to Seattle

    Vancouver is not sufficient enough of a money maker, even with an A350. The Ultra-Long-Haul 350's need a non-stop service plus high corporate traffic to be profitable. Otherwise it reverts to another aircraft type and a one-stop service, which is less appealing and even less profitable. Vancou...

  • Qantas may be prepared to offer a status challenge,  (they dont seem to do outright matches these days) so suggest you give QF FFP a call and discuss!    They offered me a challenge recently on BA Gold (equivalent to QF Plat) when I wanted to switch  to QF so they're flexible.

  • As lovely a place as it is, Broome doesn't make commercial sense as a refueling and distribution destination and here's why: 1. Added cost for crew accommodation in both directions, because they will not have allowable work hours to continue onward on the same flight.2. Added aircraft servicing c...

  • Virgin is not in STAR but for STAR Alliance there is an arrangement whereby Singapore Krisflyer Gold get access to Virgin lounges. Best option is to use the Melbourne airport cafe facilities and there are a few decent options around.
