• Everyone talking about the USA… have Australia hotels removed their 2-3% surcharge for credit card payment? I actually threatened to pay one in cash once. Only to be told they couldn’t accept over $5k. 

  • What’s next for Qantas first class?

    Let’s cut straight to the point... people with money, the kind of people who buy direct point to point first class tickets with cash are highly discerning. With Australia on the warpath of a political offensive and a clear tourists NOT wanted, foreigners NOT welcome message. Australia ...

  • Hybrid carrier is just double talk for a low cost carrier with some extra marketing, a bit of brand image and some extra service, perks available for additional fees and charges. 

  • I doubt they will be able to offer as many bells and whistles as the Qantas of the past, particularly those reserved for the upper echelons of fliers. But I’m sure they may find a comfortable niche among regular fliers. It doesn’t bother me that Qantas have a secret lounge or personal...

  • 5-10mg of anything from the diazepam family, mixes nicely with the cheese plate and a glass of red... Valium, Tamazepam, Xanax. Took a Kolonopin once on a EWR-DUB and remember being shaken awake by the crew after the flight had landed and everyone had disembarked. They make melatonin in gummy for...

  • There’s a special circle of hell for those ‘rules are rules’ sorts. I thought that QF and Aussies were more lax and above that kind of pedantry. God forbid someone has a need to travel with something heavy or fragile, a rolled piece of art, a motorcycle helmet, photo lenses, a C...
