• I think the Skybed 11 on the A380 is maybe a better bed, however the the new business suite is far better for storage and practicality when in the seated position.

  • 14K is my favorite on the 747. As you have noted, it is the exit row upstairs and I think it better than most seats down stairs. 14 A is also pretty good but the seat is further foward in relation to the window so a bit more difficult to see out if you are after the view.

  • This is certainly a big improvement over what it was like last weekend. The "temporary" lounge was a very sad space to spend time, especially when you get an extra hour in there due to your flight being cancelled.

  • At first glance this looks like it would be okay if you had the front row in PE, but looking closer at the seat map it appears there are bassinets on both outboard pairs.

  • I find the least frustrating way to get award seats is to ring the FF service desk. It will cost you extra for the "assistance fee" but at least you you can get an idea of what seats are really available and you will save a heap of time over trying to use the web site.

  • Undertheradar, it has never been my intention to make lite of DVT. I do have some  experience with DVT. Last year I had a very close friend devlop a clot in her leg following a very cramped Virgin International flight from London to Sydney. I saw her the day after she arrived ...
