• As someone once said, tell him he's dreaming.

  • I just came home on Tuesday in one of the new Qatar Qsuites, and to be honest, I am not a fan of the doors in business class. Personally I found it a tad claustrophobic and preferred the door open. Granted a business class seat is way more roomier than cattle class, but in the bed config, there...

  • Qantas revamps priority boarding
