• Sydney Airport should also provide Express Path priority to APEC Business Card Holders. It’s not just Sydney, Australia in general does not provide much priority to APEC card holders compared to many other countries that I visit.

  • The 4pm arrival in Dallas is ok if this is your final destination but I find this a little late if heading beyond. I last used this service in 2016 and it was a 13:35 arrival back then making it easy to get to my final destination without an overnight stay. I had looked at this option a number of...

  • In my opinion the Cathay First lounge wins hands down as the best in T3. Have used it many time for morning (always Saturday and therefore probably quieter than week days) departures from London. Great breakfast and the small footprint offers a nice and somewhat exclusive feel. No fan of the Qant...

  • I had Melbourne to Singapore booked on Qantas Monday’s 6th December. Was looking forward to getting back on Qantas. Flight cancelled so on Singapore Airlines now.

  • My first laptop was a Tosh T1910CS. Passive colour LCD that you could not read in any sunlight at all. 486SX 33Mhz processor (the low end version of the 486DX), 4MB of RAM, 120MB hard drive, clip on trackball mouse, Windows 3.1. Cost was obscene. You would earn lots of respect in the Flight Deck ...

    Also agree that people should be able to make their own choice. I have completed a number of international trips this year including very recently 8 flights on a Singapore, Malaysia and India business trip. I have been wearing N95 masks on all of these flights without a hint of a sniffle while pe...

  • Short visit to Singapore with Qantas

    Mar 08, 2022, 12:15 PM

    All Qantas flights with Singapore as the final destination are VTL. Google Singapore Safe Travel. There is a Singapore Government guide on what you need to do. I was there a couple of weeks ago for a business trip. That was just before some easing of testing requirements. It was pretty full on wi...

  • I always take my luggage to the Melbourne domestic check-in counter where there is a premium lane. Eliminates the risk of the luggage not being transferred to International in Sydney as they tag for the transfer, ask the security questions etc. I have never been held up here for more than a coupl...
