• What's it got to do with London? A lot of people fly to Singapore without going on to Europe, and at the moment Singapore Airlines are eating Qantas' lunch with four wide-body flights a day. All Qantas can offer is a 737.

  • Just got an email from DQ advising of the seat change for an up-coing trip. :( This is a real downgrade for those flying cattle class - really can't justify SQ's J fares for a five hour flight. SWMBO and I had windows & aisle seats in the 2-4-2 arrangement on the A330, now have 2 out of 3 abr...

  • Qatar Qsuites for Sydney, Canberra

    It might be an old, unfashionable design, but the 2-2-2 arrangement on Qatar's 777s is extremely spacious and ultra-comfortable, especially for couples. True, you may need to step over your partner to access the aisle from the window seat, but legroom is so great (78" pitch) that is hardly an iss...

    Qatar have had several false starts with new equipment for PER so I won't be holding my breath. On the other hand, all my flying these days is leisure with SWMBO and we love the spaciousness and side-by-side seating of the current 777 product.

  • The problem for Perth Airport - and the taxpayer - is that establishing an international service from T3/T4 has required the duplication of a whole swag of international gateway tasks including customs, quarantine, security etc. Border Force had to recruit additional staff (about 60, so I'm told ...

  • We were booked SIN - RGN on Silk Air, leaving at 12:00 hrs, which had us arriving in RGN in time for an afternoon excursion. Subsequently got an email from SQ saying the flight was now changed to 15:50 - too late for our excursion. OK, we'll change to an earlier flight - went to "Manage your book...

  • Singapore / SilkAir flight change rigmarole. Minor rant
