    Good call on Louis Pommery NV England Traditional Method, along with Billecart-Salmon NV Brut Reserve they're both exceptional value.

    This looks really impressive. Some European airlines have fantastic taste in design and bring a real flair to the lounge experience. But I am not sure about the wisdom of putting a bar on the top floor when you have to walk down all those steps to catch your flight!

  • Very good timing as I have a business trip to London next month but my domestic flights are with Virgin due to company policy, and most internationals are with SQ due to company activity in Singapore and Asia. We can recommend airline but have to stick to cheapest business class fare, even so thi...

  • This is a good summary of the options. CX pretty much wins for frequency, seat and lounges.

  • Qantas currently flies LAX-JFK on a Boeing 747 and from later this year on a Boeing 787 to provide travellers on AU-LAX flights with an onwards leg to New York. But the airline isn't allowed to sell that LAX-JFK or JFK-LAX leg. However it seems that Qantas has been doing just that, which has resu...
