Look, I always enjoyed EY. At the start, it was such a game-changer. Loved it. But, towards the last few years, it just wasn't as flash. EY has always been good at talking itself up (but, that's just the way the ME is - EK, EY & QR).

Agree with you, QFP1. But, I must say....I did get lonely in the First Apartments. Huge indeed they were. But, you did feel a little Nigel No Mates. Cheers

Well said, David. I'm with QFP1 on the commentary above. I was, until Covid, often back and forth to Doha and enjoyed the simplicity of the QR Premium package on the A380. Yes, I do prefer the big bird, like many, for passenger comfort. But, it was the QR A380 Lounge that was (is) the pick i...

Nice response, Kimshep, and accurate. As fas as AAB talks about 'huge demand' for his local passengers we assume he is talking about the 300,000 Qatari's out of a population of 2.8m, of course, ex-pats make up the rest. 'Paris or London, Darling?'

There's nothing worse than a whinger. In our (Australian) culture, it's the person you run a mile from. So, with this in mind please forgive the forthcoming.Emirates lives in a world of blissful arrogance. Status Retention? No such thing. And, why, praytell, is that so? Simply because EK expects ...

Yes regretfully QR hasn't managed to find a balance between Al Safwa & Al Mourjan access. One is an empty ballroom, the other a Tokyo subway.

Good question. If you're on your own I'd say EY. It's a wonderful product and for the long haul, hard to beat. The Apartment is the bee's knees. I do disagree with the commentary about the Lounge. The First EY Lounge I'd take over the SQ Private Room. If they know you are in First you will be wel...

Now you're probably searching high & low for Malabo. It's in Equatorial Guinea (known as EG). We've won work here for the next 12-18 months and I need to get people from Australia (SYD, MEL, BNE, PER, ADL) into Malabo (SSG).Does anyone here (and I could find nothing in Search) have any experi...
