• What a great ad. The line about how people see those 'red tails' and how they feel walking onto a Qantas plane on the way home is so true. Very clever of Qantas to tap into it.

  • Closing a lot of their lounges would make sense to me, if a Oneworld partner has a good enough lounge at a certian airport why should MAS also have their own?

  • I think Qantas should keep 1 or 2 iMacs in the lounge, 'just in case', but so many people fly with 'BYO tech' these days that desktop PCs are not needed.

  • What's your travel money strategy?

    I have a similar strategy to Mayan, except that I had my indentured slaves change most of my cash reserves into gold. Some complained how heavy the gold bars were, so I had them executed on the spot. It's so hard to get good help these days.

  • Nobody is forcing you to read these articles Hugo. Why not just read the articles you want to and ignore the ones you don't?

  • If both of your flights are on Etihad I'd consider Etihad Guest, but I think the best choice would be Virgin Australia's Velocity because you're more likely to be able to use the Velocity points for Australian flights or upgrades, there's not a lot you can do with Etihad miles from Australia unle...

    Here are some very good reasons I think Austline is trolling, he says "SCL gone code share with LA" yet as we can see from the link above, Qantas has announced that Sydney-Santiago will go UP from three flights a week to four flights a week.
