• It would be good if Qantas applied the principles of their research flights into their current operations. If keeping to destination time is so important then why would they want to keep the cabin dark on the LAX-JFK sector? Surely having the cabin light would encourage passengers to stay awake d...

  • The 4pm late check-out was the benefit I valued the most being SPG Gold. Now that the late check-out is 1pm I'll be using the new Marriott less. At least being mid-tier Rydges PGR Platinum still gets 3pm late check-out.

  • I found Three fine for a one off trip to London. However, be aware that Three consider the roaming time to be the total duration from first roaming use outside the UK to when the next time you return to the UK, regardless of the actual time the sim card was active. I got caught out by this and ha...

    This is not a smart move if Qantas wants to try and woo back customers to use their Singapore and Auckland services.

  • The easiest solution is to limit carry-on luggage to one small personal item.

  • I had a similar problem with a Finnair booking but it was resolved with the correct points/status credits posted. You may want to email the boarding the boarding passes and e-ticket to [email protected] and point out that I class is paid business class and according to the Terms and Co...

  • I was on that flight last week and the windows were significantly dimmed, though not all the way, and it was not possible for me to alter the extent of dimming. Luckily I had been in LA for a week already otherwise it would not have been good for body clock adjustment coming direct from Sydney.

  • Best Lie Flat Business Class seat

    Despite the criticisms of the QF Skybed 2, I actually prefer them to their newer Business Suites if flying a window seat on the A380 which has the side storage areas. The older Skybeds provide more vertical area for moving my legs. After having done a 15 hour flight with the A380 Skybed and a 4 h...

  • Finnair RTW

    Jun 13, 2018, 09:32 PM

    Personally I find the Finnair RTW tickets unbeatable value, with tickets under $6000 as part of a recent sale. Sure, it's not the best but for the price they have lie flat seats, even in the A330; and it's possible to use Cathay Pacific and Qantas as part of the itinerary.Even without oneWorld st...

  • I fly regularly in regional WA and abandoned Virgin when they started altering schedules on the day causing 3+ hour delays.
