Got the a4 visa, printed, took it straight to the normal immigration desks and had no problems! Couldn't be easier. FYI I put religion as none for anyone wondering i...

  • I flew QR MUC-DOH-PEK last week, I'm Qantas Platinum which I only mention because you specifically ask about treatment of QFFs. I think their service was up to standard - in fact the DOH-PEK leg was the best I've got on QR (and far better than I've ever got on BA!). I flew with two large carry on...
