• I'll be happier when they re-open the express entry at SYD. These are the things that make a difference for me. I fly a great deal but unless you are delayed or have a painful transit you shouldn't need too much lounge time. 

  • If we are all brutally honest with oursleves the limo driver who caused this current outbreak has actually done us all a big favour. Of course loss of life is a terrible thing to happen but the without the current outbreak vaccination rates would be seriously lagging and we would not be having co...

  • There is no such thing as bad press! Seriously though, I had no idea of BA's dominance over the LHR slots.

They are not alone in having Max 8's on order and are dealing with the issue in the right way. I don't see what else they could have done for a better resu...

  • Regular in VA business and no doubt the rope repels some loo traffic however always a few who run the gauntlet!
