• VA is not the same inflight experience as Qantas, but it's the flexibility and ease of making changes that matters most to me right now, and despite being someone who actively wants to fly Qantas and is willing to pay for it, Qantas' "Fly Flexible" policy is anything but and simply not compe...

  • I can understand the intention and potential utility of "Light" fares in Business, but I think it's reasonable to suggest that Finnair has taken this a step too far, particularly if OneWorld status doesn't "reinstate" some of the benefits lost by booking this fare as if often the case in Economy ...

  • Surely there must be more to it than that, as the same could be said about domestic flights in Australia. I can't imagine VA's BNE - PER flights are looking great this week.

  • Moving to Airbus makes sense for a few reasons:- The A320neo family would be a solid replacement for the 737s over time (and is a nicer experience from a passenger perspective).- The A321neo would fit in nicely on busier domestic routes while also opening up thinner routes and markets further afi...

  • It seems the problem at the moment isn't what exactly Virgin is aiming for, but that they don't appear to be aiming for much of anything at all, let alone delivering.

Australians overseas are dismi...

  • I haven't flown J or F out of BKK on Star Alliance, so can't speak to class-restricted lounges. If *Gold, I prefer the NZ lounge in MEL and the BR lounge in BKK.

  • No - only subscribed Alaska Lounge members may use the Admirals Lounge when travelling on AS or AA. Flying F on AS does not grant entry. Instead, you'll need to head to the AS Lounge in T6. (OneWorld status is irrelevant here, as AS is not a OneWorld member.)
