• Breeze Air sounds like an air conditioner...

  • At least one or two of them should have satellite and wifi installed already - they already did a trial years ago and I remember flying to the US on an A380 that was part of the trial.

  • My experience with meals on both Cathay and Qantas out of HKG has usually been average, so this is not surprising. Meals out of MEL or SYD are always a much higher standard and generally not overcooked. The one place in Asia where the meals seem to be better is ex-Japan.

  • Virgin Atlantic had this in an app years ago - it was based around starting to adjust your sleep pattern gradually - moving it an hour earlier or later each day from around 3-5 days before the flight. Also said when to exercise and when to rest. Didn't go as far as food though.

  • Damn, I was hoping they would be stored at the airport as one of them will be a large ski bag. I don't know why they consider it a stopover - I booked it as a connecting flight (ie. using the return flight option, not multi-city option) - it's not my fault it happens to be an 11 hour connection!...

  • I’ve just booked a flight that goes from Melbourne to Christchurch via Brisbane. Arrives in BNE in the evening but don’t depart for CHC until the next morning (will catch up with family in Brisbane). Trying to work out if I’ll need to collect my bags and take with me or if they&...
