• Seriously ... Canberra airport is the best? It is the most soulless airport ever. Avis car rental currently operates out of a vehicle in the car park. No food/drink outlets in baggage area and only 1-2 outlets in the departure area. Outside of the lounges it is a ghost town. Plus being label...

  • Qantas trims east-west A330 flights

    Seriously? Perth is the most over-rated over-priced city in Australia. "oh no we don't have A330s".  Sit in the Qantas Club amid hundreds of hi-vis vests.  Bogan central.

  • Optus opts out from Qantas points

    June is the last month of the partnership, and when it ends we’ll be giving 4000 bonus points to QFF number xxxxxxxx. They’ll be added automatically at the end of July, 2015 - as long as the Optus account and service that’s earning your Qantas Points is still active. I will be ...

    I do have to ask though. Why a two-step process? scan your password and answer 1-2 questions and get a ticket then go to another gate, insert ticket and post for photo Why not do both at the same time.  More gates, less 'kiosks' probably = saved money and time.

    Seriously smartyy? Unless you were born between 1880 and 1933 you chose to live under a flight path. Sydney airport is totally conjested.  For example landed today at 8.08am and didn't gate until 8.38 due to other aircraft having to land/delart/move around.

    Yep.  Similar to 'Qantas' NZ crew who are all locals and arrive home on late night flights having done AKL-SYD-AKL etc.

  • Yes.The private operators of the stations at the airport charge an additional fee which is built into the amount the Opal card is debited.If there are a few of you travelling a taxi to the Sydney CBD is likely to be cheaper - around $40 from international terminal to the city (suggest you get dri...

    Thanks everyone for the advice.  Greatly appreciated.I guess my time in either lounge will be restricted by only  being able to check-in 3 hours before departure even in first class.Shame since 'online checkin' really doesn't mean much when travelling o/s.BTW 2A was my choice as well :)
