I agree the Qantas lounge was always a bit hectic for me pre Qantas flight so a retreat to a sit down a la Carte from the cozy cathay lounge was nice. ( note my past tense some time before the opportunity arises again).

Not sure why such a long wait in Perth a 2-ish hour layover would see a pre midnight arrival in Singapore

This seems to suggest business class travel is way down, so a way of filling up the first class seats. Do the airlines have to pay anything beyond free advertising of Heathrow express, which must be losing money hand over fist.

Sorry to nit pick but not sure how it can be exclusive for trans Atlantic, as well as Latin America. Perhaps they meant ‘inclusive’ or more correctly ‘including’. Jus sayin.

Budget, I think your analysis depends on your definition of ‘almost’ like Australia domestic travel is heading back, but international travel is well and truly in the doldrums. Who wants to go to a place with out of control cases and no/limited insurance coverage. Qantas is depending ...

Qantas have just done the same with a 30% cut. Covid in this case affects both supply and demand. We are now in a self imposed lockdown due real fears and reduced supply of all sorts of things.

My view in those situations is don’t ask don’t get. I had the opposite where they would not put me on an alternate flight after they missed a connection but put me in a hotel instead and fly the next day, as it would have been more expensive for them to put me on another airline even ...

There are three new 787s and a few A380s returning in the middle of the year which will reduce the pressure on the A330s to possibly do some domestic work. Business flights will be down until the bug gets sorted out some more. I have some work flights to Canberra I probably won’t need as we...
