• How important is priority boarding?

    Jun 28, 2019, 04:48 PM

    As has been voiced previously, I agree most premium passengers prefer to board departing aircraft last, whether it be domestic or international to shorten the time on board and the last thing they wish to be is in a seat longer than needed. Thus dump the privilege, make boarding straight forward ...

  • Qantas launches Lifetime Platinum

    Jun 20, 2019, 04:08 PM

    That is also approx. $1.200.000 in airfares!!!!!!!!

  • PE pitch - lets get serious and increase it by at least 5 inches to make it functional and comfortable, wanting passengers to come back for the next flight with a smile. After all this aircraft flies for 14 to 15 hrs on some non stop legs, let alone AU to UK in one go. The current arrangement wil...

  • BA's first class revamp is underway

    Nov 29, 2018, 08:18 AM

    Not to be blunt, but compared to other airlines, BA's First seat is nothing more than J class with a fancy name. And their current J class reverse seating arrangement is an embarrassment. Maybe that is why they feel their First product is superior when compared. They had a good product in the 90'...

The A350-900 is simply a modern version of them just with ultra long range capabilities. It is still 8/9 across in Y as the A330 is a...

  • Cabin baggage

    Totally agree and have experienced the same. It is simply a combination of the above comments, with some passengers feeling they are entitled to bring on bigger and more hand luggage than allowable (presumably through non diligence of airline staff at boarding gates) than the other mere mortals t...

  • Seems to me, quite an embarrassment in modern aviation. AKL airport staff will soon be hand pumping fuel from imported 44 gallon barrels to get the aircraft in the air. What a joke!.

  • Velocity Account suspended

    Sep 16, 2017, 07:28 AM

    I had a similar experience, but different. I had a credit with Virgin Australia a few years ago due to a flight cancellation and this credit was accessed and used by a third party without my knowing. This mystery passenger was based overseas. The credit was refunded to me after a l...
