Finnair's new Platinum Wing lounge at Helsinki has its own saunaJun 07, 2019, 11:09 AM
Based on the photos online (https://www.instagram.com/p/ByXglXaBhvQ/), the new lounge looks amazing. Can't wait to check it out in a few weeks!
British Airways is upgrading its Club Europe business class mealsSep 05, 2018, 09:35 PM
I hope not! Not sure if you've flown BA recently - their "Club Europe" product is pretty awful in terms of food and service. The publicity photos look nice but will have to wait and see what this "upgrade" is like in practice.
Qantas boosts flights to Singapore, Jakarta, NoumeaJun 15, 2018, 03:41 PM
Maybe lobby Perth Airport to be more flexible might help with more QF International flights (e.g. JNB)...?!
John Borghetti resigns from Virgin AustraliaJun 12, 2018, 10:38 AM
New blood is definitely required at VA. As written in the SMH:"Virgin's total rate of return to shareholders - including dividends and share-price gains - during Mr Borghetti's tenure sits at -55 per cent. That compares to +35 per cent for the ASX200 and +140 per cent at rival Qantas."
Why the Qantas first class lounge needs to be much more 'exclusive'Apr 06, 2018, 01:55 PM
Totally agree - whilst I agree that restricting access to people flying JQ domestic sectors, this shouldn't apply to OWE. Under Oneworld rules, QF would have to create a "fake" First lounge (like BA at LHR T5 and QR at DOH) if they want to lock OWE out of the existing First lounge in SYD. Anyway...
Oneworld Emerald lounge recommendations for Narita, HeathrowJul 20, 2019, 08:32 AM
Yes, you can access the QF First Lounge at MEL flying JAL. The best lounge options as a QF Platinum/oneworld Emerald would probably be the JAL First Class Lounge in the Main Building at NRT and the CX First Class Lounge at LHR if flying from T3 or BA First Lounge if flying from T5.

As mentioned, no additional screening in HK but still at BKK - just flew on QF24 from BKK two days ago and bags were checked at the gate.

Gaining HK lounge access for partnerMay 21, 2019, 02:23 PM
In that case, you probably won't be able to get access for your partner. According to oneworld rules, only Emerald, Sapphire and First Class passengers are able to bring a guest also travelling on a oneworld operated and marketed flight into lounges. There is no guesting for Business Class pas...
