• I am equally perplexed as S and cannot understand why Chris mentions China Airlines under the "Brisbane- Beijing" heading towards the end. As S points out, China Airlines is NOT a Chinese airline. It is the national airline of Taiwan. That is akin to saying that Singapore Air...

  • Malaysian has had paid meal upgrades in Economy for quite some time, called MHGourmet. IMO they did not even need those, since their Y meals are already much better than CX, especially on long hauls. But nice to have the extra choice.

  • Qantas upgrades 'cafe breakfast'

    I have pre-ordered the lobster for breakfast on Malaysian many times and its a great meal to start the day. Especially when the crew go the extra mile and add scrambled eggs. Granted, you need to be Enrich Platinum for the lobster, but there are tonnes of other dishes on their Chef On Call (COC) ...

  • Unfortunately, very sure. I have passed through KUL several times since all of the lounge renovations were completed. MH is typically very slow to update its website, but the old Platinum Lounge is well and truly gone and I will miss it heaps! The space it used to occupy is now called "The Retre...

  • There is no more Platinum lounge at KLIA. I fly through KUL frequently and the First Class/ex-Platinum lounge have now been combined. Apparently, that was necessary because the Business Lounge renovations took up most of the space of the old First Class lounge. Sadly, that has all been replaced ...

  • I just flew Frankfurt to Doha on the new A350 2 weeks ago. I must say I was very underwhelmed!Was sitting towards the back of the business class cabin and the open air, lobby entrance arrangement meant a lot of noise from Economy was drifting forward, screaming babies and all. Furthermore, the ca...

  • The cabin crew, not the cockpit, manages cabin temperature. Yes, they do routinely increase temperatures after a meal service and at night. Its just the cabin crew's way of making everyone drowsy and sleepy and it works.The temperature is controlled by zones and cabins (in most modern aircra...

  • Totally agreed and I have experienced the same. My experience was on the Hong Kong to Sydney flight, though. Was still on an A380, lounge in HK was super full, so that no seat, let alone food was to be had. I could not believe the sheer number of passengers in their new lounge - it was standing r...

  • Hi David, I think DrT is on to something here. I myself have often wondered why Qantas management makes it so difficult to understand the codeshare/connection perks and pitfalls with its relatively large Asian routes out of Singapore or even across the Tasman.Had the same experience recently and ...

  • No it does not. Last few times I flew out of SIN with CX, their first class check in was handled at the same row as all other classes. No invitation was extended to the SATS premium check in lounge. But I did walk past the premium check in lounge and it did not look very attractive at all. So you...
