  • Emirates restarts Adelaide flights

    That's great! Although, I was under the impression Adelaide would be served with the new A350. Interesting to see the 777-200LR instead.

  • I would say for the price of QC, a Priority Pass membership is probably better value. The restaurant/cafes at many domestic terminals have better food/drink offerings than Qantas Club by a long mile and you can also use the Rex lounges if you are after a quiet spot (which are also due to be upgra...

    I am excited about this. Apart from the sugar sweetener launch sale, I'm hoping this brings more competitive pricing on the route longer term too.

  • Singapore Airlines sends its business class passengers + frequent flyers to this lounge now... I got in as a Velocity platinum cardholder back in late Feb, only a few days after the lounge first opened its doors. It's quite a nice space, although it was surprisingly busy.

When I ask about vegetarian options, the FAs are only able to offer a small packet of rice crackers, lol. You cant even choose to b...

  • New Virgin Business domestic verdict

    For me, the onboard catering is not as good as it used to be but the lounge experience is much better. I dont drink alcohol, and the range of juices and soft drinks onboard my flight the other day was very poor. They used to serve fresh OJ, for example, now it is the long life processed stuff. I ...

    +1. You only receive a letter and a new card. If you need new luggage tags you can just ring up and the Velocity team will organise for you. I've done this many times, as they often break.
