• Respectfully Simon, I disagree with your assertion that the EK via DXB is equivalent to the QF via PER option for Adelaide flyers. Ex ADL if you travel via PER you have a short day time flight (same for the return journey), with the opportunity for a very long sleep on the main flight.Having flo...

  • I can see some amazing potential here....this could mean a new Perth International lounge, similar to Brisbane...and let's face it you cannot simply base aircraft in perth without cycling them back to the fleet base which one assumes will be East Coast.  Imagine an international departure fr...

  • Great review, essentially mirrors my experience on this route in April. Great aircraft, excellent seat, although needs more storage, and a fixed IE screen maybe?  given the departure times I quite liked the tray based meal service, but compared to my previous Qantas flight o HK definitely l...

  • Agreed PK.  I am Adelaide based.  For paid tickets to Europe in Business my best option is Qatar given the timmings etc.  And by flying J I get a better lounge in Doha than my OWE status gets me.  If I fly Emirates at least I can use the Dubai First Class lounge.Honestly the o...

  • Finnair only operates (Albeit possibly the best OW lounge in Europe) lounges at Helsinki Vantaa airport.   In the Non-Schengen zone they already have a Premium lounge that is in effect a OWE lounge.  So I assume the reference in this article is to creating an equivalent Premium lounge ...

  • OWE travelling Qatar Business Class and transiting through Doha. Just trying to work out what lounges I can enter. Am i correct in assuming that the Doha First class lounge is ONLY for first class passengers? So even though I'm a OWE I can only access the business lounge? Has anyone experince...

  • Flying Finnair, access to AA arrivals lounge Terminal 3 LHR? Hi, I'm flying to LHR with Finnair, and as such I'm routing SIN-HEL-LHR. The final leg is a BA Club Europe flight on BA (AY codeshare). Technically this isn't a Long haul arrival into LHR, but does anyone know if I will be able to ge...

  • Much easier for them to achieve their refit, it's only the Business cabin and galley that is have works done. Where as QF are doing the entire cabin, and possibly a 'D' check or some other major maintenance that takes a few months

    With 14 hours you may even want to go to the city.  Not sure what you arrival time is, but if cost isnt an issue you could catch the Express train to either Kowloon or Hong Kong Island.  The Ritz Carlton sits atop the Kowloon terminal and has some of Hong Kong's best views, or for the I...
