• When oh when will the brioche bun fad ever end! I've never met anyone that actually prefers a burger in brioche!

  • As evidenced by the photos, the quality of meals served by CX in J is still very poor! Basically Y class meals served up in porcelain. I thought CX were going to upgrade J meals to something actually plated up by the FAs? Having just flown MEL HKG rtn with VA in J the meals leave CX's offerings f...

  • We got there in the end however there is certainly no automated process on behalf of Velocity or SQ to make this happen. You will only receive the original SCs / points if you ask and even then you may be told 'No' along the way until you ask the right person / threaten the involvement of the air...

  • The online booking for AMEX Velocity Plat started on 10th April.

  • Hi Chris...any chance of an update from your Velocity / Virgin spokesperson? It's very clear now that there is no script and no intention on Velocity's part to carry out a correction. For most of us the concern is status credits, not velocity points. Even though Velocity is blaming SQ, while I ac...

I've never seen such a filthy beach as all the trash that enters the sea from the island waterways is just deposited back onshore. And the sea is generally not particularly safe either.As others have mentione...

  • I have found service in EY J to be pretty poor. Have flown AUH-LHR twice and each time I've ordered food and or drinks which just never arrive. Then get attitude when chasing it up! Crew seem frazzled and inexperienced...and not very happy! I do like the hard product through (if A380 / 787)...pro...

    I'm just going to agree with everyone else. I've flown MEL-AUH-LHR in J twice. One of the MEL-AUH sectors was pretty enjoyable...otherwise all pretty sub standard. Both AUH-LHR flights have had awful service with the dine on demand concept. Each time I stopped a crew member and ordered food that ...
