The 787-10's will almost definitely be deployed on the big bucks routes from LHR to the US east coast. The destinations they can serve will be limited by their decision to NOT fit the 787-10's with Cabin crew bunks (both the 787-8's and -9's both have Overhead bunks for the cabin crew). BA has ...

rwSydney exactly. BA has around 200 longhaul aircraft. Qantas has about a third of that and as you point out the installation of new seats is taking around the same amount of time.

CX aside - why do the hub lounges of asian carriers seem to be so 'meh'? I don't profess to have flown every asian carrier out there but there seems to be such a disconnect between the generally high level of product and F&B onboard and their lounges on the ground. Even at their hubs.I rece...

It's something I have never quite understood about most of the Asian carriers (excluding CX here). Some of them offer superb service on board yet they just have the most 'meh' lounges, even at their hubs. As if they don't even really try. Even 'five star' airlines like ANA and JAL have very med...

What I find most odd about the new VS suite is the fact that they have no plans on retrofitting it to any other aircraft (according to what they have told The Telegraph in the UK).I totally understand they wouldn't retrofit it to aircraft soon to retire - the 747 and the A340 - but the decision t...

Sorry if a little OT but kind of along the same lines....something that I find absolutely incredulous about domestic travel in OZ (well with QF anyway) and that i've not witnessed anywhere else in the world is the ability to get onboard an aircraft without once showing any form of ID. Which has ...

When I fly on Malaysian's A330's in J they have a pretty weird J class config.....there are 30 J seats in the forward cabin. 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...
