• Let's see if the Foreign Investment Review Board is still “asleep at the wheel”.

  • patrickk,I understand the duty arrangements, but the point is that the longer term effect of 20+ ULH on all crew will be damaging, and mistakes will be made. We can only hope that if this inane idea gets going, that there is not a tragedy as a result.There's a difference between the impact on pas...

  • Unfortunately there are few posters thinking about the pilots and crew. Aircrew are humans too, who have to endure the ultra long haul conditions in getting passengers to their destination safely. They don't have the luxury of comfortable beds, and are on duty at the beck and call of passengers f...

  • Since Joyce is hellbent on bypassing pilot agreement, he has embarked on a dangerous path. He's shown that he is willing to ignore safety concerns from experienced and professional staff for the sake of his ambitions. What's next?I pay my fare for safe passage to my destination, and I expect it t...

Have seen this as I actually knew the staff flying and had previously requested an upgrade for myself and family from premium economy. Complained after getting back home b...

    Of course I would. Potable water is perfectly safe. Your bottled water supplier does not provide water that is safer. It's just without taste. Sampling on bottled water shows that it's got the same content as tap water, but without chlorine or fluoride.

  • i tried to upgrade from PE to Business from HKG to MEL using points. No seats available, but discovered that staff were occupying seats in Business on this flight. I complained, but was just brushed off, A moment that gave me cause for further complaint.

  • Well, the dreamliner does not need much maintenance. Alan Joyce has seen to that, so don't be concerned.China Southern is not a problem. Quality aircraft, well trained staff. Just as long as the nav system works , you'll get to where you want and it's cheaper by far. If you want to add to Al...
