• Interesting article! Does anyone know what the approximate pitch and recline of those early Qantas and and PanAm business/clipper class seats was? Given regular economy class pitch was still pretty generous then, you'd assume pitch for business class was comparable to the more spacious Premium Ec...

  • So for SYD-YVR-EWR flyers, presumably this lounge would only be accessible prior to the YVR-SYD flight, not the YVR-EWR leg?

  • Your advice about the odd-numbered window seats being the 'true' window seats (as opposed to the ones closer to the aisle) is not entirely true.

  • Theoretically you can use the EK lounge in SYD, which definitely has some advantages over the QF lounge: the wine and spirits are better (including actual champagne); the food spread is usually pretty impressive (though I don't know how good it is late in the evening prior to MH140, as the lounge...
