I thought the same thing. They look top-heavy.

Thank you for this timely article. I'm now living in the UK caring for elderly family and I'd hate to see my Qantas points simply disappear because I'm not using my AU credit card and my arse isn't sitting in Qantas metal. If I'm on a BA flight, or on a OneWorld member, does that count towards ke...

I must be getting really old. Wasn't the A380 the next, new, great thing? And now they are being retired.I flew BNE to SYD specifically to travel on one of the first ones (via DBX) to LHR. Can that be ten years ago?I loved those gorgeous clunkers, the 747s, which would lumber down the runway. And...

I was often on the LAX-BNE route. Upper deck, window seat, exit row. It was heaven. I'll miss the old girls.

As mentioned previously, a dry place to change clothing would be great. Either make the suite private enough that you can disrobe without drawing applause, or a separate small room where your trousers or socks aren't dampened by whatever moisture is rolling around on the bathroom floor.Speaking o...

We are Australians, now retired, living in Scotland. I use the Ziploc bags for frequently-used currencies. Tend to toss the silver coins, or from a place I may not get to again, into the charity bins or bags. Funny thing is that while Scotland widely accepts English notes, the English don't n...

I'm an Australian now living in Edinburgh and sadly too familiar with Heathrow. The lounge in T5 is simply unfriendly. Too crowded and not zoned properly; the "flow" is awful. I think it was designed by someone who never had to sit for more than two hours in a lounge. However, heaps of power pl...

The last time I flew BA you exited the window seat without having to climb over your seatmate because the seats are forward/back facing. Has that changed?

On a HGK-LHR or SIN-LHR run, which is the better business class? Cathay or BA? Looks like most of the aircraft are 777s, although BA is showing at least one A380 option. The BA site doesn't do a great job of showing off their seats which leads me to believe they are not quite as current as the CX...

I'm a former New Yorker. When I go back I generally stay at the Beacon Hotel on Broadway and 75th. It's my old neighbourhood of the Upper West Side. It's a former apartment building (people still live there, actually) and while it's a bit old the location is fantastic and the rooms have all been ...
