• I agree with Eminere. Jeez, the EY product was fabulous when it first came out.Thoroughly enjoyed Business in the 380, in that small front section, and the First Apartment's were/are flash. But, bloody isolating. I really felt like Nigel No Mates. But, the dilution of the product just kept on cre...

  • Great question, David. And, I like the responses. Generally speaking, we like the connection.Like many of my fellow ET's I've enjoyed being up the front and would agree, QF First is a warm and welcoming feel. EK I'm not a fan of and EY was just too over the top. I'm a sucker for SQ service, alway...

  • Aha! ...and a tale to recall. Some years back I was in QF First Lounge in LAX when a celeb, sitting next to me, did the same thing. I felt like saying, 'not a good idea, love', but didn't. When we landed, though, it was another story. Cheers.

  • Thanks, Felix. I enjoyed that little bit of history.

  • (Thanks, Chris. Once again covering important subject matter with a querying eye).Yes, it is desperation and it is a pity. EK doesn't like to answer to anyone and this move, ambitious as it is, has a lot of hot air within in. And travel needs a lot more than hot air and marketing to allow confide...

  • 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...

  • Malabo! That's Right, Malabo.

    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...
