• I cannot comment on VA's 737 Business product as have never flown it. But I did fly them in Business for the first time recently from SYD to PER on the A330, a route i've done on QF more times than I can count.When I arrived at the Virgin terminal at SYD I was thinking to myself i'd made a big m...

  • While the 'walk on' fares are pretty steep it's like almost any travel based system these day - book online, well in advance and you get far cheaper fares. I paid £5.50 for my one way ticket the other week! Leave it to the day, and you'll get hit in the face (and no different if you do the same...

    BA did the same earlier with a retired B747. Sent each staff member a baggage tag made from the aircraft.

  • Wawanderer - you've hit the nail on the head. Yep, the published First Class fare can be ridiculously high. But, as you rightly point out - how many of the 14 sat up there are paying it?

Which has ...

On most aircraft the 30 seats would occupy the whole cabin between the front galley and the galley at doors 2. But on MH they've squeezed the 30 seats into a smaller area...

  • JAL Apex suites. Direct aisle access for all. Forward facing. Very private. No silly rabbit hutches or crevices to fit your feet into.

  • Agree to a point guys. But in CX and QF's case at least they gave a decent amount of notice that the opening date wouldn't be met. And thankfully there were other decent alternatives in T3 also. The frustrating thing with MH is that since the closure for renovations they have been publishing a re...

  • Hey folks,Does anyone have any insider info as to when the main MH lounges in KUL will re-open?Up until yesterday the Malaysia Airlines website had posted that the lounge would be closed from Oct 2017 - 29Jan 2018. I noticed today the 29Jan 2018 has now been removed and there is no 'end' date to...
