• The operating crew of that flight are going to have a lovely 7 day layover in MEL!

  • Nick's Wine Merchants in Melbourne have a great range and deliver. I've had the Crown Royale Harvest Rye which is delicious.

  • I was once doing DXB-LHR with QF, and we were delayed after boarding. The captain was Richard de Crespigny of QF32 fame. He just kept on giving us facts about the A380 unitl we were ready for push-back. All about this size, the amount of air the engines inhale every second, how many cars could be...

  • I went through here last Novemeber in FInnair Business class from MEL-LHR and I'm QF Gold and I was let in no problems. The lounge wans't busy and I loved it! Missed it on the way home due to a delayed departure and having to run to my next flight which was a shame.

    I made it (I think), work booked a MEL-LHR in Y+ and it was on my QFF account yesterday afternoon even though I haven't seen the final itinerary in my inbox. I've got Gold, but was likley to be a bit short to retain this year so was planning a QF booked run from AKL-MEL in Emirates First to sc...

  • Ryanair- Can it be done?

    Thanks for the responses so far. The flight is Frankfurt to Venice/Treviso. I'm going to Udine, so heading north from there. I'm hoping the German efficiency will save too much chaos in boarding at FRA. Flights to Trieste leave in the afternoon, so if I take this I can land after midday, otherwis...

    Hi all, looking to get to a particular part of Italy after arriving from Aus in Frankfurt. RyanAir has the best flight in terms of destination and timings. I'm not stressed about paying for a flex-plus so I get priority boarding, baggage etc. So, not doing it to save money, but is it madness to f...

  • Hi all,Virtually every trip I've made from Europe to Aus has been leaving Europe late at night and arriving early in the morning 2 days following, so I have my plan for that so I stay awake all day on landing and I find that really helps me combat jet-lag.I'm flying soon with Qatar from Zurich le...

  • BA flights double in price overnight

    Feb 01, 2018, 03:21 PM

    I have a trip to Europe booked with BA and had been looking to change my departure, so searched a whole new itinerary to compare prices and a ton of options were missing, including no direct flights on route that previously showed 2 daily options. It's very strange.

  • I used the Qantas Business lounge in Melbourne, as my first leg was a QF flight in J, so as above go straight to the lovely new Business lounge in Perth. When we got to Sydney, we did the transfer at gate 15, no questions asked. As our boarding passes were printed on Qantas paper maybe thats what...
