• Qantas revamps priority boarding

    Nov 21, 2019, 05:51 PM

    Sounds like it's going to be more like many overseas domestic and short-haul international flights, eg LHR to Europe, system but without a bunch of pre-defined groups, just priority passengers being invited to board first, and then everyone else.

  • Good comparison, Brandon! Qantas is easily the best value here and no wonder that the QC is a money-spinner for them, $400 sign-up fee alone. But like you say, if you are just doing domestic flying and mainly cap cities at that, then it's hard to justify Qantas Club over Virgin. As soon as you st...

  • I'm okay with an overnight flight as long as it's long enough to get a good sleep, which Tokyo is, and as long as I have early checkin to my hotel to shower, have breakfast and get on my way. Overnight flights on the return are okay because I can get a full day of work done in Tokyo and then rel...

  • This is fantastic, I had one of the original Razr phones in 2005 and it was THE phone to have, looked very sophisticated and worked really well despite the typically poor Motorola user interface. I am still not sold on this 'foldable screen' technology, mainly concerns over longevity and if annoy...

  • I agree, I have seen first class passengers come up and use the lounge to spend time with somebody who is in business or even economy who comes to visit as a guest, but if I was in first I would probably stay there otherwise.

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...

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...

  • I'm interested in hearing what sleeping pills the AusBT readers use and recommend for international flights as well as to help with that first night's sleep, as that's something I often have trouble with too.
