• Really looks cheap, Virgin better be making sure to tell every passenger this is just temporary and then they better get moving on launching this new business class in January. Keep the great fares but upgrade the meal, it doesn't have to come close to what Qantas has, just make it worthy of bein...

  • If Virgin closed the Canberra lounge it would see most of the public service and politicians and 'consultants' head straight over to Qantas. I reckon Rex will add Canberra as soon as it's built up the triangle even if it's just a flight timed to connect with the most popular regional services int...

  • Not surprised to see BA up stumps until the end of 2021, they can always come back sooner but realistically it will take until then for the bulk of Australians and Brits who want to travel to be vaccinated. Qantas has also said it doesn't expect to bring back London until the end of next year.

  • I can see the case for something better than today's VA Boeing 737 business class on east-west flights, especially to close the gap against the Qantas A330 Business Suite, although I think that's all Bain would want to do, not compete directly against Qantas in product.

  • I'm Velocity Gold and I work with a Velocity Platinum, we both applied for the Qantas Tier Accelerator and once we supplied proof of previous VA travel based on our Velocity account's activity statements, Qantas offered each of us QF Gold status. The good thing is that we also have the opportunit...

  • Virgin Australia now offers a Basic Economy fare on its long-haul flights to Los Angeles, Sydney-Hong Kong and Brisbane-Tokyo. It's called Economy Light, books into M class. Checked baggage is limited to 1 x 23kg bag, compared to 2 x 23kg on other economy fares. You still get the same catering as...

  • Originally Posted by Grannular What cabin? What airline? Sorry, it would be business class. I'm flexible on the airline, it's just that having to step off a 'red-eye' flight and pretty much go straight to work means I really need to make sure I get a good sleep. I appreciate that each airline ha...

  • Yes I know that's a lot of aircraft to choose between but if I am doing an overnight flight and wanted to really get a good sleep, which aircraft should I be preferencing if I have the chance?

    A few years back there was talk of CityRail changing the way the Sydney Airport Link worked, they would just have the trains running a shuttle service from the international and domestic terminals to Central, back and forth. But I think this was scrapped because everybody would have had to change...
