• Qatar and Emirates are 2 very worthy carriers... so on long-haul from Australia, I want comfort and space. I feel more comfortable in an A380 than the smaller planes, which feel cramped to me. Space is a very important feeling that long-haul passengers appreciate, and is much more relaxi...

  • To me, all this talk is silly. Once we have a vaccine, why should post COVID-19 be any different to pre COVID-19?
