Good write-up, Sid.I did this exact leg (First/Bus) two weeks back to burn some EK points before they expired. It's really a no-brainer on the 380. Yes, with the QF First Lounge before hand, there is not much need to eat, but it's still a nice service.On the return, I had zero complaints. Not a p...

Etihad had a cracking product there when they had Nicole Kidman up the front showing us how unique 'The Residence' was. I flew quite a bit in Bus and occasionally in the First 'Apartments' - yes nice indeed. But, my last trip was underwhelming. I'm not singing EK from the rooftops but it was just...

A good article that's giving us a spirited discussion. I think we all feel the significant downgrading in Qantas Lounges over the last 10-15yrs. Alas.

Yes, I know the airline wasn't run properly. But, Garuda was my preference in getting from SYD/DPS.I could get a decent BusClass seat, and take a board over 9' (you can't do that with anyone other than SQ now).

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...
