    Those looking for a proper AC outlet for more power-hungry devices like straighteners though will instead need to plug-in in the room proper, as there isn't an outlet in the bathroom.Or in any bathroom in the UK, as it is not permitted under their building codes.

  • 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...

  • 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.

    Pre-pandemic Qantas used to operate 1x BNE, 2x SYD and 1x MEL flight each day to LAX which all fed the LAX-JFK hop. They also operated flights to SFO and DFW on top of this.Currently they have one flight per day to LAX from all cities. There is simply not enough demand to fill the JFK plane, so i...

  • LHR - SYD Flights: VTL or FEPO?

    Hi cssaus.You are correct, that at this time, Australia is not included in Singapore's Vaccinated Travel Lane scheme. However, it is expected to commence towards the end of November. As travel is not until March next year, I can't provide any reliable advice on the best option at this time.As for...

  • Airline profitability

    Many airlines have used aircraft cabins to increase freight capacity. This works well for airlines with a home market of South Korea, which is a huge exporter of small consumer electronics and other manufactured goods suitable for passenger planes.A large percentage of Australian air freight expo...

  • 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 their short...
