Sounds like we are all on the same page here. I’ve had 3 x J class sectors with VA in the last 2 weeks. The snack packs contained exactly the same items on each flight, including a 2 hour lunch flight (minus the Power Mix as featured in the photo in this article). They actually...

12 aircraft could just be the beginning. The A380s only have another 10 years life in the fleet so will need replacing eventually. Plus one thing the Qantas team are good at is negotiating with airports and unions plus gaining publicity. So part of these route ideas could be aimed at Perth air...

It has been done before and it didn't work. One of the Oz-SIN flights did continue to BOM daily (perhaps it was a 767-300ER in those days) and there was also an attempt with an A330 non-stop SYDBOM (from memory it had a technical stop in DRW one way to refuel). This was also suspended (sounds...

I'd have a plan B if I were you. Last time I waitlisted using Krisflyer miles the confirmation came through the day prior to travel and I had already made other plans by then. It may not even come through confirmed at all and depends on the loads on the particular flight. I'd lo...

I'm a regular ex Melbourne on Qantas, Cathay and Singapore and I find them all excellent. The only drawback with Qantas is the lack of direct aisle access in business but if you are travelling as a couple this wont worry you. The bed is flat and comfortable and the Aussie wines are fi...

Does anyone know if SQ have plans to upgrade the aircraft they use SIN-Istanbul? I'm travelling next year using miles in business class and they still use the old tilt seats
