The aircon in those private rooms (and same as in SYD) has been an ongoing issue for years now. I really wish they'd fix it (I guess it does act as a deterrent though - I'd be more inclined to request a room if they were not a sauna).Last time I was in one I lasted less than 5 minutes before movi...

They get around, although the Australian registered 738s seem to do Perth-Karratha most frequently so it'll be those that work in mining that get the IFE. For example, here's VH-VZL so far this month:http://go.shaun.net/vxze8 Data is from the Qantas Jet Tracker at http://theqantassource.co...

I seem to recall reading that China Southern use the Air New Zealand lounge in SYD. This may be the same situation in BNE.
