Direct SkyBus from the airport to places that aren't the city is a pretty decent idea. St Kilda is fairly so-so as a hub, but I guess there's plenty of O&D traffic there. As someone who lives just north of the city it would be nice if I could catch a SkyBus without so much backtracking. Not ...

I assume that the operators have sucked a lot of politicians' dicks to get that sweetheart deal. Heck, there's even a PTV bus stop at the airport, for the infrequent 901 bus which goes to Broadmeadows station from which you can catch a train... a good way to save ten bucks if you've got a lot of...

Makes sense, if the space can be more profitably used for passengers than cargo. Can't say I'd particularly miss windows, especially on long flights. I know Lufthansa A340s at least have a downstairs toilet, which is actually pretty nice. Going for a stroll downstairs makes a nice change to the ...

I log into KrisFlyer, select Partner Programs, select that I want to link my account to Virgin Australia and put in my Velocity number, and I get the n...

Disagree, once you're on the plane and have had your own IFE choice interrupted to get blasted with the safety announcment, it will seem even longer.

I didn't like that one, personally.I was a big fan of the Sports Illustrated Bikini one, before the feminists got it banned. [Deleted by admin - inappropriate language.]

Not really funny, the two airports have very different priorities.

Depends how often you want to be midtown. The NYC subway is reasonably fast and efficient, if not always pleasant.Personally though I'd still stay somewhere I actually wanted to be, rather than staying somewhere else and catching trains every day, unless doing so was absolutely murderous on my bu...
