• Tips for staying trim on the road

    Sep 26, 2018, 08:07 AM

    This is a small step but overall I find it does help. I always walk at airports and never use the escalator or travelator. Of course if one is lugging a 10kg carry on and dog tired, then that's a different story. On occasion when I have a 4-5 layover at Singapore Changi , I have walked all the w...

  • Worth noting on the Promotions page after submitting your information, one particular T&C along the lines of "Please note your membership MAY no be valid at partner lounges..." (Sorry I should have copied and pasted it). That't a very pertinent T&C to make note of! Particularly as I am m...

  • Govt crackdown on TRS rebates

    I am surprised this TRS scheme is open to Aussie passport holders in the first place. In most other countries (ie the ones I've mainly used it such as Singapore, EU) it is only open to tourists/non-residents. Seems to work well there without any issue.

  • Well, if tipping does not occur in the airport lounges of say, Manila, Kolkata, Bangkok, Jakarta, (or anywhere else in the developing world where tips are expected), then why should you tip in the confines of an airport lounge in the USA? I think airport lounges by nature are somewhat of an exce...

  • What a joke! And this from an airport which is trying to impress with it tourism credentials. Why oh why is this country so stringy and backward minded with its airports (and other pieces of key infrastructure). Just take a look at how it's done in places like Singapore, Tokyo and Frankfurt and...

  • Wow, keep up the fantastic work! For many years now you guys have been my first "go to" for everything frequent flyer and airline related. Fantastic job and happy birthday!!!!

  • As Australians, I don't think this sort of lip service is warranted nor expected. It seems really awkward. I mean, if VA was a government run airline, then I'd kind of get it, but its not even that.One could argue further about this cause, should supermarkets do the same for veterans (express que...

  • Virgin Australia and Star Alliance

    Joining an alliance certainly wont happen under JB's clock. He has been strongly opposed to this, instead focussing on building invididual partnerships with airlines. This is where VA is weaker in the sense that it cannot offer the global coverage and frequent flyer benefits that it's rival Qant...

  • Your bags will be checked through to AMS and this is where you collect them. Any customs check will be done there. You will however clear border control at CPH as this is your first port of entry in the schengen zone.

  • The T3 one is a tad more glamorous than the T2 one. The T2 one is much darker, with less natural light surrounding it. Like the T3 set up, toilets are outside, which is a hassle in itself. The food options on offer were about the same time the last time I used them both a few months ago.
