• And the Federal Government has also made it clear there won't be any international travel for quite some while. I would assume that if there is a sudden upturn in international travel after we are allowed to travel then the planes will come back. I also think that most of the airlines that will c...

  • LATAM gets a business class refresh

    Jan 05, 2019, 09:52 PM

    I recently flew LATAM business with the present 2-2-2, it was interesting to see how many couples were on the window seats and solo travelers on the middle row. I actually thought the cabin looked very airy, and when sleeping it was easy to roll side to side.

  • Another advantage of the older business class seats (Skybed II) is that if you are travelling with a partner and one of you like to look out the window you can still travel side by side and enjoy the views. This is one of the things that I will miss as airlines go 1-2-1. Would prefer a 1-2-2 (or ...

  • So I am wondering if the Tamworth upgrade points to Tamworth in the top running for regional pilot training base?

I would imagine that there would be a number of people on London flight connecting w...

  • Oneworld does a circle Pacific fare. The webpage says to contact the airline or travel agent to work out fare. I had a friend do this a number of years ago and got a good deal, but I don’t know the cost nowadays.

  • Qantas frequent flyer calculator

    Feb 12, 2019, 10:09 PM

    Have you thought about using SriLankan via Melbourne? Not sure of the status points (not coming on the qantas calculator tonight), but reading the tables it should give you some status points.

  • I have found the problem to be with Heathrow full stop. Every member of my family have had issues with transfer of bags with connecting flights at Heathrow, to such an extent that we all now try to avoid this airport. It didn’t matter which airline we flew in with (although always transferr...

  • Have they announced the second pilot training centre yet, wondering if this is an indication that Tamworth gets the nod. Agree with Clancy, it would have been nice if other ports had been considered for a lounge to start with (there is a space set aside at Dubbo for a lounge so I am told)
