• With flights booked to GRU in November the lack of announcement was causing concern. I had even discussed the reopening of this route with a crew member only 2 days ago he said that the internal rumours were suggesting next year!Welcome relief! 

  • This is great news, I asked a crew member on a recent flight if they had any news on this as I have flights booked for November and he said the rumours internally were next year! No need for expensive changes now! 

  • I second that, BAEC is an excellent alternative to QF (and others)  whilst based in Aus and this allows more to take advantage. 

  • Miss out on retaining Gold for the whole of '22 by 8 days.... I for one hope they expand this as being Australian based retaining any status is near on impossible in the current climate!

  • F on BA, especially out of SYD was frequently only a few hundred $$$'s more than J. Well worth the extra when factoring space, level of service and ground experience including car transfers (at SYD) QF F lounge etc.

I visited the archipelago craft beer bar at T1, worth a look if that's your thing. Alternatively the Jewel is open...

  • Australian Travel Declaration

    My wife and I returned from Fiji two weeks ago, we completed our declarations on day of departure whilst in the lounge (we were there for a week) so within the 7 day window. We both received confirmation within seconds of submission. We were asked our for vaccination records and travel history th...

  • Its unlikely that those flights will go ahead, they will likely (if at all) only return when free travel between Australia and the UK is back. However, new bookings are being accepted for September so I would assume its a month by month basis. I booked some recently for Dec /Jan (hopeful) I had f...
