• With the amount of data (work, photos, emails etc.) stored on people's laptops, iPads etc, this opens up the possibility of data theft if and when bags go missing, are lost, miss connections etc.Not to mention the incentive it gives people to take off with bags other than their own.

    Completely agree. You never know what kind of delicates other people have in their bags... Cameras, sunglasses, laptops etc. Much better for the owner to move/adjust the bag.

  • Heathrow's ambitious expansion plans

    Sep 08, 2016, 02:15 PM

    Like you and Packetman21 say, T3 is pretty modern (relatively speaking). Furthermore, why on earth would Qantas be building its own new T3 lounge only for the terminal to be knocked down so soon. 2019 surely can't be true? Even though I know this has reported in some circles.

  • You could also head to the Emirates lounge - always solid in Singapore. Their food is usually pretty good and they serve champagne as well (which they do not at the Qantas lounge unless you're Chairman's lounge and/or Platinum One). However, the bathrooms/showers are not as nice as the Qantas and...

  • That as well ;) Was more talking from my perspective which is always ex-LHR
