• I've stayed in many Airbnb's across my various interstate and international trips, and have had a couple of cancellations which have made life difficult- the worst of which was in Montreal, which is an expensive-AF city to be in to start with. Unfortunately I've found that Airbnb's reticence to d...

  • @regular flyer - admittedly I had not particularly considered FJ or HA via HNL, however having said that I have done that in the past, spending 4 days in Hawaii and then heading off to SEA on DL's redeye. Clearing immigration in HNL was painful when we did it in 2019, however they were renovating...

  • @regular flyer - calling via LAX an adventure is a nice way of putting it! Don't get me wrong, as a (normally) single traveller, not a problem, however I don't fancy wrangling multiple children through the sh1tstorm that is LAX if I can go direct to YVR! Hopefully once we get back to some sense o...

  • Similarly, I'll be interested to see if Brisbane-Vancouver makes a return as well. With family in the PNW, going into Vancouver and driving over the border beats the pants off negotiating LAX and/or SFO.

  • It'll be disappointing if they do give up on LAX, especially considering that DL only serve SYD, leaving BNE to QF and MEL to QF & UA for the direct flights.

  • Virgin Australia LAX terminal move

    For what it's worth, the connector bus between T2/T3 and TBIT isn't that much of a problem. We did SEA-LAX-BNE in August. Waiting airside 5-10 minutes for the bus and walked into TBIT about 5 minutes later.

    It'll be interesting to see how that turns out for the mileage/status credit accumulators, as Delta's Comfort+ product credits to Velocity as Premium Economy, but at 2/3 the price of VA's PE product.

  • Cheap upgrade Triangle

    My minimum offer on a recent SYD-BNE and return was $120, but the slider defaulted to $150 when I opened it up. Considering I've got Gold status the upgrade to J isn't really worth it for what is essentially a commuter flight.

  • What is going on at QantasLink?

    Oct 27, 2017, 07:25 PM

    Is it possible that this reliability is an "Eastern" issue, as opposed to a "Sunstate" issue? Back in 2016 (or possibly 2015) all of Sunstate's 300's seemed to be sent south so that QLD became (pretty much) all 400's.Considering that VA have cut back their regional network perhaps there's less pr...
