I had the pleasure of enjoying UA BNE-SFO end April this year and would heartily recommend them over the miserable sub-class offerings of QF. The Polaris seat is a winner with terrific flexibility for comfort for a long-haul.

I don't know what it is but EVERY time I go through the body scanner I show up a shadow on my left chest as though I have something in my shirt pocket ... No surgeries or implants so ??? Still glad to comply as it makes my flying safer Thank You Very Much.

Yet another reason not to fly Qantas. After my BNE-LAX imprisonment last June in an A330 - an aircraft NEVER designed to fly long haul, I determined to quit Qantas sub-standards altogether. The sheer pleasure of travelling United BNE-SFO this year, AA domestic USA and look...

Heading to Singers in early February and wondered what had happened to the rates ... some of my favourite hotels are not even showing vacancies and the Marina Bay Sands is quoting $800/night ... Wha?? But if visitor numbers are that high and they can get the price then that is busines...

Sooo overdue. I suffered the unfortunate fate of flying Y BNE-LAX 27 June in a crammed full A330 with staff suffering the ignominy of trying to sleep lying across seats in the mid cabin (albeit hidden by curtains). No opportunity to do a 'lap' of walking space, smelly bodies squashed...

Slightly off-topic but I regularly summer in Canada and my friend spends summer here using eTA for visa - with her March 31 flight cancelled she wisely decided to stay and applied for a "Streaming" visa (cost $385) - good for 12 months and was automatically sent a bridging visa … Not expecting a ...

I suspect recreational travel like mine (Canada for Summer/Australia for summer) will be in demand for a starved public and demand will result in high prices for a time until 'normality' returns - the airlines are not likely to offer any bargains while they attempt to reinflate their share dividends

I was unhappy with Telstra charges and particularly the fact that they do not employ Australians to provide assistance, so I switched to Optus on a $100/mth plan plus a 'family' SIM to put into a mobile broadband outer at home. It comes with a 2gb allowance in Zone 1 countries whuch I find is ...

On the ESTA note … Make sure you get your eTA for Canada as well.I was caught at LAX in July, having driven out of Canada in June following a cruise ship arrival to fly out to Australia.Arriving on a through ticket at LAX on my July return, Air Canada advised that to fly into Canada the eT...
