By the way, she happily travels on the tube here in London. We won't board the carriage if it is too crowded, but that isn't a guarantee that it won't fill up on the 15 minutes into Central London. Some people will avoid her, others will want to pet her. The biggest issue tends to be if ther...

Dog owner here. I'm happy to keep my dog in an appropriate hold, and pay the necessary charges for doing so. There are enough other dog owners, let alone non-dog owners that are scared of my German Shepherd. She is well socialised, friendly and can easily wait 12 hours to go to the toilet. B...

Heathrow will bend over backwards to keep you in the airport.

Flew QF 10 last week. J class was full on LHR/PER and about 50% PER/MEL. Booked a J seat as a one way ticket a few days out and got a good price (well relative to QF pricing), so presume there were plenty of seats available and the remaining ones filled with points upgrades.I would guess that you...
