• Same as Singapore.

  • Are you sure? A flight from Melbourne to Tel Aviv? I recall in those days most Israel bound passengers transferred in Athens for Tel Aviv. Lufthansa carried a lot of passengers to Athens from Melbourne and Sydney who were transiting to Tel Aviv.

  • And should definitely include Jordan....it's at least a 2 week trip, but well worth every minute

  • Air France have never flown to Australia. Back in the 60's and 70's, TAI originally flew and then when they amalgamated with UAT, the airline became UTA. They flew to Paris via Teheran but not TelvAviv.

  • I always appreciate the honest reviews from ABT and Chris in particular, as opposed to those in the Sydney Morning Herald whose positive glowing bias "as a guest of (the airline/hotel/etc)" is evident always.

    I'm no fan of TG or the A380, especially when arriving in LHR. (or BKK for the same reasons). However, the A350 is a delightful aircraft with better lighting; humidity levels and lower passenger numbers.Especially in EY. Instead, you should be taking the Finnair daylight service (A350-900) to Lon...
