• I think there are two important factors to consider.1. The available space in LHR T3 for a mega lounge complex simply doesn't exist. It would be difficult for QF to source a larger continuous facility. Even if they could, the rent would be astronomical and would not pass any reasonable business c...

  • How important is priority boarding?

    Jun 28, 2019, 09:48 AM

    For me, it's more about the location (and aircraft type). If I am in Japan for example, I will board last. I know there will be plenty of locker space, and I don't have to spend longer onboard to ensure my bag has space.In the USA, I am ready at the gate and boarding as early as possible!

  • The Brisbane Airport masterplan includes a monorail to be built between Intl and Dom terminals, and a long term carpark. This could be delivered as early as 2022.I wouldn't be surprised if this was the next major project after the new runway is delivered.

  • Both Qatar and Emirates already fly to Auckland, Cape Town and Sao Paulo and Los Angeles non stop. That leaves Buenos Aires and Santiago as the only commercially viable routes out of range. But the longer range A350-900 purchased by SQ could do that distance with full payload.

  • I'm particularly interested in the economics of such a product. Thirty-two bunks would likely take up six to eight pallet bays in the cargo hold. I would suggest that six cargo pallets would be much more valuable to an airline than the potential revenue of 32 beds. Particularly if those beds cana...

  • Would you drink aircraft tank water?

    Oct 28, 2019, 09:21 AM

    The tank water is generally safe to drink. Airlines conduct regular checks of the water filling stations, and equipment used to service aircraft to avoid bacteria entering the tanks. It's common practice for small amounts of chlorine to be added.Most airlines have a no uplift list for th...

  • Sudden QF price changes

    Aug 23, 2019, 12:20 PM

    The other week I was booking a flight with Qantas, and wanted a price with extra bags to compare prices. I entered my details but didnt even get to the payment screen when I abandoned the transaction.That afternoon Qantas sent me an automated email stating they were holding my seats and the price...

  • Air Baltic - Yes or No

    Aug 17, 2019, 10:32 AM

    Not sure where the negative reviews are coming from. They have a nice new fleet of A220s (previously C-Series) and were the most punctual airline in Europe last year.For a point to point, you will be fine.

  • In that case, you'll earn status credits and points on this itinerary. It appears to be an error with the velocity calculator that those city pairs (and many others) are omitted. MSP-ICN is included in the calculator, so there is no strange exclusion for South Korea in the VFF DL relationship.

  • Are you sure it's DL metal? The only direct flights I can see between JFK and ICN are DL9012 and DL9103, both of which are codeshares operated by Korean (KE).Delta does fly to ICN with their own planes, but only from SEA, MSP, ATL and DTW. If you have a connection you will need to search for each...
