• spacious yes but everything else about this lounge is bad. 2 visits in the last month. food was terrible, staff very abrupt and unfriendly. i will now avoid Shanghai and China Eastern at all costs

  • I have flown this route - MEL - NYC on Cathay, Singapore (A340), JAL, Qatar and Etihad. Cathay and JAL are great but the return journey was not the best for US lounge access at JFK. Qatar is always good but Etihad has a special advantage of clearing US immigration in Abu Dhabi.

  • Qatar airways does a great job with Business class lie flat seats in its A320s

  • New for the Roo: Qantas Boeing 787-9

    A350 beats B789 hands down, especially the Qatar A350. The striking difference between Qatar A350 and those of CX or Finnair is the absence of centre overhead bins in Business class. Sense of open space is much greater.

  • Passenger departure cards axed

    Why do we even need to go through immigration when departing Australia.  In the USA there is not migration check on departure and they are most security conscious. All the information is already available.
