• China Southern to leave SkyTeam?

    Hopefully Oneworld!

  • Do you book Boomerang for return flights? ;)

  • Looks good, I'll get to check it out a few times next week. Can't say I'll miss the current lounge there too much.

  • Review: Heathrow Express

    Thanks for the hnady review, agrees with my perception of the heathrow Express. I'd also recommend the Hotel Indigo, always had great service there. The Mercure is fine too. Either make a handy London location especially if you have day or business trips to Oxford or West incl southern Wales. 

  • Shame they don't have a 3-class fitout of the A330 with Premium Economy. The sweet price point for most of my personal travel. Also makes it easier points-wise to upgrade to Business.

Advantage was the extra, roomier toilets and uncramped feel up the front but the IFE really old cf the other versions. Not sure how much longer...

  • I'll be trying BA's Premium Economt next week, CX to HKG on A330 then BA to LHR on the A380. Not expecting it to match Qantas but it was a much cheaper fare.

  • Definitely The Pier! Far more spacious, quiet and more options.
