• I'm on the QF17 later this week which shows the new cabin layout. I've been waiting for this for a long time, and thrilled about the prospect of getting a really good sleep. The old Skybeds are absolutely shocking. Even with the exciting new refurb, as with any aircraft, all seats are not equal b...

  • @fergo it’s actually worse than that...You can go into the Concord lounge, even if you’re not in first. You just have to be in the BA elite tier - similar to Qantas P1. No doubt at all, the BA Concord lounges are the closest experience to our Syd / Mel / LAX First lounges with Qanta...

  • Review: Marina Bay Sands, Singapore

    As we were getting the cabin ready for landing on a recent QF94, I went back to the galley and asked for my water bottle to be filled up. I was unfortunate to get a very irritated FA, who used the tank water tap, instead of using the larger bottled water which they normally do. She said the water...

  • I think you'll find this is called a ‘courtesy block' and typically only available to P1's in my experience. Also worth noting it is not ‘guaranteed'It is only ever available in Economy, and if you've been getting it as a Platinum then you're lucky. Someone has...

  • I find the QF first pj’s pretty itchy. They’re not made from a comfortable material. I long stopped wearing them, and take my own, or ask for business class ones instead....
