• If you were in Y or PE and have a long layover between flights, the chance to shower, freshen up, eat and drink in a relatively quiet environment might seem good value. You're not going to get that at a good bar.

  • Qantas are already doing biometric boarding at LAX. No need to show your passport or boarding pass to enter the gate. A BP is still needed on the plane although that can be electronic too.BTW, I dislike the interaction and time wasting associated with check in desks (and queuing) and ground staf...

  • However, the speed at which passengers will be processed will no doubt increase, thus leading to a requirement for less scanners. I’m pretty sure BAA would not spend nearly $100m to make the screening process slower.

  • Another feature of the QF flight is landing at T3. Due to it being the only international flight landing at that time, as a business class passenger (i.e. first out of the plane) you can be in a taxi/Uber within 5 mins of arriving if travelling only with hand luggage - this is definitely not poss...

  • Certainly with Qantas, cash upgrades are processed after most points upgrades have been dealt with. Platinum requests are processed 3 days out and gold requests about 30hrs out (unsure on others). Cash upgrades are processed <24hrs out if there's anything still remaining. As mspcooper suggests...
