    I had the Sennheiser PCX450 Circum Aural ( over ear ) Noise Cancelling headphones and I was utterly dissapointed. The noise cancelling was minimal fairly dull, and the audio quality was really bad.I found using my smaller and cheaper $15 on ear Yogi's better!If I had Music playing or watched a Mo...

    What about Virgin Atlantic? They have a bar too. The design of the Bar's on Korean and Asiana are way too sterile and hospital like, resembling bathrooms. The other airlines have got it right, going for a warmer and more welcoming tone.

    I am more worried about the Hygiene aspect of things. I always bring my own Noise cancelling headphones whenever I travel. Apart from the fact they work a million times better than the ones offered in Business Class on any airline, they are mine, so I know for sure they are clean. The thoug...

Have used Skyscanner but all the other options are 15-25hour flights.Checked out JAL and the options are just as bad. Happy to fly Jetstar but wondering if any other Airlines fly direct?

  • If ever you want to know about seating arrangements a nifty website exists where you punch in the name of the airline, the date travelling and the flight number, and voila a seat map appears. This way you can get a good idea of what to expect on each leg, and which seats to avoid. goo gle a websi...

  • I realize you only asked about Qantas, Etihad, Cathay or Qatar, but if you want to save a little money Brunei might be a worthwhile option for you. For example, a return flight with Etihad using a random outbound and inbound date in May returned prices around $5600 to $6000 in May 2015 on www.sky...

  • Have you considered Royal Brunei? They have really competitive prices and have recently improved their business class according to the article below on this very website. I have not flown with Royal Brunei or the other carriers you mentioned in Business Class, but at around $4800 return it is alo...
