• Really glad Qantas didn't go down the QR code ordering route like some others have done. Used this at a Virgin lounge and it was actually a bit of a pain, always nicer to talk with actual people like lounge staff and sometimes get their advice on some dishes.

  • Just a shame that the Auckland lounges are still third-rate, Qantas talked about these being redone in the Hong Kong and London style of a single 'premium' lounge but last I heard even the showers had been out of order for months and months.

  • While I'm fairly confident of Virgin 3.0 being a success, seeing the changes that the airline's been making and its focus on being its own self aimed at the broader market instead of a Qantas clone, there's just no way I would feel confident booking a whole bunch of trips until March next year ju...

  • Pleasantly surprised, I was half expecting wraps and other basic stuff. This looks like something I would actually want to have and even pay for on the ground.Maybe Virgin needs to turn The Club lounges into business class lounges and serve meals like this to passengers while they are on the ground.

  • That's a good point, Qantas will need to get A380 pilots and crew trained back up for 'currency' I think it's called? Wow, imagine A380s doing Sydney-Perth or even Sydney-Auckland!

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...
