• A completely wasted exercise. Joyce will never know what it feels like to travel in economy class for such a journey. His grand ideas of amenities for business class is all he focuses on because THAT'S where the profit is. No profit in economy class though and proves it with the DFW/SYD route. Th...

  • Looks like this club will cater mostly to business owners, buyers, purchase managers and the like, rather than the average public frequent flyer accumulating points through general household purchases.

  • Renewed for a further four years. Good deal, but somehow my membership was listed as corporate rather than individual. After 5 hours of trying to get through and sorting it out, all good now.Can't help thinking that membership must be falling off though.

  • Purely marketing to get a edge over the others. The only safety issue was a small person trying to lift their 10-12kg bag up to the overhead stowage compartment.

    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...
