  • Wouldn't it be fantastic if they had this (reintroduced this?) option at Heathrow? It has been such a bunfight my last few flights, with queues snaking back into the thoroughfare causing havoc. If there was early check-in, it would smooth out chaos a little. I seem to remember that pre covid you ...

    My one woman protest against Mr Trump was to not visit the US while he was in power, and Covid-19 has kept me in check since, so my upgrade story must be from 2015 or 2016.The trip was Syd -> LAX -> JFK. I am not sure if I was QFF Gold or had just clawed my way to Platinum for the first tim...

  • Thanks to you all for responding.I have been tapping into FlightAware and found it very helpful to track the daily (and historic) delays for QF11 flights between Sydney and LAX, and have hopefully built in enough of a buffer so as NOT to miss my ongoing Amtrak booking from Union Square LA! And, o...

  • Thanks DrSK. I appreciate your replying, giving the thumbs up to FlightRadar24 and will check out ExpertFlyer. Cheers.

  • I thought I should tap into the hive mind of ET to get recommendations regarding what apps are the best for checking (1) passenger loads on specific flights and (2) flight arrival/cancellation etc statistics.I stumbled onto a site a few months ago that was very helpful, but do I remember its name...
