• With Toronto as my hometown, I must say this is absolutely amazing!  Trips to YYZ on VA are difficult (given DL doesn't fly LAX-YYZ direct), and trips to YYZ with QF are becoming more challenging, for the timings between QF11 & LAX-YYZ flights aren't as... optimal as they used to be (wit...

  • Chris Great review (thank you)!  Looking forward to trying out this service both ways in a few weeks.  Particularly, I'm excited to feel the difference in the seats (for although I do love QF, I find the SkyBed Mark II seats, at times, have a rather significant tendency to have a 'droo...

  • @upperdeckyou can now hit up the QF TBIT lounge via an internal connection from T4 direct to TBIT (saving you the outdoor, ex-security walk between terminals).Looking forward to doing this myself come three weeks!! https://www.executivetraveller.com/new-lax-terminal-connector-quicker-transits-mo...

    Interesting...  makes sense re: needing to connect to/from a Star Alliance flight to receive aligned benefits.Re: the potential future partners, David: do you mean Air Canada Rouge?  I think Jazz is their regional affiliate...

  • Apologies - not sure how I came up with 11-abreast, indeed it is 10-abreast.  I also accidentally typed 777-300LR (which doesn't exist).However, the airlines I had in mind that do 10-abreast are Emirates & Etihad (both of which do fly to Australia with this configuration), and Air NZ (th...

  • Hello AUSBT readership,Does anyone have experience making changes to a VA reward booking made under the guaranteed international economy reward ‘benefit’ made available to VA Platinums?It took me literally weeks to get it booked (inclusive of almost 2h of futile debate with several ...

  • Seems to be variable... but I know I was able to secure a business reward seat on QF95 about 4 months out from travel just this March. As a rule & to avoid disappointment, I book them as soon as they become available (even if not precisely the class, carrier or route that I really want (and...

  • Hello AUSBT Community,I've read that UA offers PJs on SYD-IAH services, but cannot confirm whether or not these are routinely given out on SYD-LAX and SYD-SFO services as part of the amenity package?Flying to SFO tomorrow and am keen to know if I should pack my own.Thanks for your help!

  • Greetings AUSBT readership,So I'm not sure how this is going to work. I'm flying SYD-SFO-SAN on 02November, which is after the 30Sep Velocity FF 'divorce' (and my SFO-SAN leg is on VX). I'm currently QF gold & VA platinum, but am aware the VA plat status will serve no good for this flight :...

    I recently did this transfer (July 19) and have done many trips to Toronto over the years.  They now have a security screening transfer lane right outside of where you put checked baggage back on the belt, which saves you having to go out on the street to T4, instead taking you directly into...
