• Sydney Canberra has to be the most overpriced route in the country. Going back a few years when Ansett competed you could get a $69 return fare on a weekend. 

  • Time will tell. Knowing how Bain works they will push the limits of what they think they can get away with. The el cheapo snack has gone do you really think they are not going to cut costs elsewhere. It’s just the easiest thing to cut 1st up. Bags will be next.

    For the real budget conscious business traveller economy would be better bang for your buck. With P1 you still get business lounge access/food and priority boarding. And you will have even less ego rubbing.

  • As suggested use the seatbelt and some pillows to reduce the risk. Also for the enlightenment of some. Over 2's do indeed pay for their seats, are not little adults and therefore don't behave like adults. Finally parents cannot fully control all behaviours eg crying so please no more comments abo...

  • Getting the spare seat has more to do with the fact the forward seats can only be preselected for p1 p and gold and only released more generally much closer to departure. This means if the flight is really full or another couple with status chose 2 seats next to you the your out of luck. Given mo...
