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...

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!

100% agreed. The AMEX lounge is also a good alternative if you have the right AMEX card but its very small and quickly gets crowded. I would definitely head straight to the Emirates lounge.

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...

There is now a train between HEL and the city, it's called the Ring Rail and the trains run in a loop, trains go both ways and because the airport is centrally located on the loop you can catch the eastbound I-trains or the westbound P-train, it's about 30 minutes in either direction to Central.
