    Didn't the IL-96 have something like this? (Without the outside projections)

  • AusBT 2015 dinner: have your say

    Oct 19, 2015, 03:32 PM

    I'm in Perth, but I'm interested enough to consider it, depending on work and other commitments at this relatively busy time in the social calendar. I would suggest a Saturday night, so that out of towners can come in and go out without having to book time off work. With your various relationshi...

  • I agree, bring back some fun to the lounges. The last time I saw a pool table in a lounge was in the Virgin Blue (as it was then) "Blue Room" in Melbourne, back in 2006. They also had mini golf, big screen Playstation terminals and a cinema.

  • No thongs? Yes, that's right international visitors... Only briefs and boxers are allowed!

  • The A300-600ST (Super Transporter) quite proudly calls itself a Beluga. It even says so on the side in large friendly letters.

  • I'm about to book an Etihad flight that includes a domestic sector on VA and I will be crediting all the status credits to Velocity.

    Oct 07, 2016, 11:00 PM

    My parents are flying to Canada on Air NZ on a 777 next year. I flew on them a couple of times myself before PER-AKL became a 787 route, but I was on my own so I had a window seat. I can't remember if the centre pair has a divider that can be lowered for chatting. Can anyone tell me if they do, o...

  • I had Singapore Airlines reissue a boarding pass without me asking. I had originally booked on VA and commenced with a domestic leg to Sydney, and when I presented my VA issued boarding pass for entry to the Sydney SQ lounge, they took one look at it and after a couple of taps on the keyboard han...
