• There is a lot more to these types of menus than you could achieve just by 'walking around', and some form of movement is always advisable on any long flight. I think you need to get a bit more informed about travel health.

  • I wonder how many people who criticise these menus have actually been on an ultra long haul flight which serves them such as QF9 PER-LHR in order to make informed judgement? I have flown QF9/10 twice now and the 'wellness meals' really do make a difference. You can still go for the traditional 'c...

  • There are some great tips here, as always from AusBT.

  • Owner of a BMW X3 here, can attest this is a superb car, just as I expected it would be. Great finish, very spacious of course, it's my first SUV and I would have trouble going back to a 'normal' wagon after this!

Th...

  • My 'go to' lounge is the AMEX lounge outside of peak hours. In peak hours it's just too crowded because the lounge isn't very big but outside those times it's perfect for me. A nice small quiet lounge, I never see any kids in there unlike the others especially Qantas, meals are light but enjoyabl...
