• If Virgin goes down this path then I think it should also offer a complimentary selection for Velocity Platinum members. Maybe this could be done through some sort of vouchers stored on the Virgin app, Golds get two or three per year and Platinums get five or six per year, so when you use them on...

  • I've done some Delta One flights from the US, it definitely can feel a littler bit like an office cubicle with the door closed, so I leave it open most of the time and just close it when I want to sleep. All things being equal I would prefer a business class with a door so I have that option, ove...

  • Not "selling all seats", as the article points out, only 149 seats were sold and the Qantas 787 has 236 seats, also middle seats were not sold. And plenty of articles over the past months have pointed out that aircraft are actually very safe compared to regular indoor environments due to their hi...

I also think it will be a rule that you show proof of vaccination and probably also a negative result for a very recent or even 15-minute COVID test before you can board a flight overseas. The negative COVID test thing will probably be requir...

  • Adding to AsiaBizTraveller's suggestion of an eye mask, I use one of the CX ones from their first class amenity kit, it's very comfortable, and I have a calming sleep-inducing pillow spray which I use at the hotel to help me sleep, so I spritz just a little of this onto the bottom of the mask nea...

  • I've flown Cathay Pacific's A350 and B777 to HKG and I can tell you that the A350 is so much quieter! I also felt a lot better on arrival, as the A350 has a lower 'effective altitude' in the cabin that's more like 6,000ft above sea level compared to the B777's 8,000 feet, this is similar to the B...

  • I'm flying China Southern to London and wanted to take advantage of the 72 hour visa waiver to spend time with a supplier near there and another contact at Shenzhen but also wanted to take the new fast train to Hong Kong to visit our regional distributor. But, can I leave China to go to HK and th...

  • I 'm now flying CX a bit around Asia and I'd say at half my flights from HK are in regional business class, although this include Cathay Dragon which uses the same seat for its own business class. Nothing really to complain about, as Brandon says the seat is a bit dated in terms of storage, or la...

  • I will admit to being a fan of Pam, ie diazepam or temazepam, which is available under prescription for insomnia. Diazepam is also known as valium of course. Very effective within 30 minutes.
