• The sooner American Express cuts a deal to transfer the lounge access benefit with their Platinum Charge cards from VA to QF, the better. QF obviously wanted to charge Amex far too much, resulting in them opting for VA. QF may now lower the cost enough in the age of COVID-19 to win the business; ...

  • This example is why I cannot stand VA. The constant hodgepodge of agreements that result in various loopholes and examples of, “Oh, but not this particular lounge on this day of the week when you're not standing on your head”. Sheez. Virgin is consistently inconsistent. All over the shop. It's wh...

    Should 'sort' in the below sentence not have been 'sport'? Qatar's Australian fleet includes its flagship Airbus A380, the Airbus A350 and Boeing 777, some of which also sort the airline's widely-acclaimed Qsuites business class.

  • I agree, they appear at first blush to have totally missed the mark, although maybe it's a demo at this price point that they will actually profit from; time will tell.Just like the American Airlines offer where they pair a card with unlimited (other than having to fly with them, of course) loung...

  • I envy you Chris, as I would do that if travelling solo but my husband would NEVER do all that runaround! It is also disgraceful that EY first class out of ZRH does not use this lounge (we did this in January, but had to use the inferior lounge offered) - I really will visit that terrace one day....

  • Marriott Platinum status expiration?

    Runs out at the very end of February, and restarts again in March if you re-qualified.

  • Although the immigration line at DFW is at times visually very long, they are indeed efficient and certainly friendlier than other ports; they are used the Qantas big bus arriving & plow through everyone expeditiously. Agreed also for D.C. that Reagan is definitely better to fly in or out of ...

  • I ultimately think your postulation is bang on, TRB. They are very much sympatico with both the QF/JQ and VA/TT situation of wanting to ensure they have blanket coverage of a region in both a LCC AND full service sense, while ensuring that only their LCC offspring services the ports that require ...

  • The QF A380 Y class does not need an upgrade of anything - as someone who has flown it a dozen times, I can say unashamedly it still rates up there. I can rarely get through every movie & TV show on their IFE that I want to and, as several people have pointed out, anyone who is prepared will ...
