  • Unlikely as HAECO has already announced the launch customer will be a Middle Eastern airline sometime in 2020, speculation is that this might be Emirates, but either way I'd say that rules out Cathay as their A321neos will be Q1 2020.

  • How important is priority boarding?

    Jun 28, 2019, 11:48 AM

    How important is priority boarding to me? Very important, especially when I'm in economy on domestic US flights. Makes a massive difference. International flights, not much of an issue if there is boarding through separate doors such as on the A380 or a Boeing 777, with one door dedicated to busi...

  • Not good news! I use Uber Select a lot, and got a lot of free upgrades to a Black HC-plated car. Will be very interested to hear what Uber has to say about what cars and drivers will be categorised as 'Premium'.

  • The cost of entry should be geared to suit the lounge. Any of Cathay's new-look lounges like The Pier, Manila, London, Vancouver, Haneda, Bangkok and Taipei are great. I would actually expect The Pier to have a higher entry fee than the others because of its top line facilities. But no way ...

  • I tend to think that the latest premium economy is either the best or among the very best previous economy, purely because an airline can learn from others. I would say that as a seat, the Qantas Boeing 787 premium economy seat is pretty good except for that awful legrest contraption, and of cour...

  • AUSBT Site - Ads

    Mar 27, 2017, 10:18 AM

    Is the EK advert which dominates the very top of the screen annoying? Yes. Would I rather not have it there? No. But would I rather put up with it instead of not have AusBT free and part of my daily reading? Yes!!

  • Good Qantas status runs

    Mar 01, 2017, 02:57 PM

    Qantas has made its Sydney-Bali (Denpasar) flights daily now and this can be a good status run on a 'double status credits' offer in business class. A shame it's only a Boeing 737, I'd much rather spend the six hours in the A330 business class, especially on the overnight return leg of QF44. You ...
