• Hardly revolutionary. Few years ago I was whisked away on a business class bus from a B738 at CGK having arrived from PER. Hardly a flagship flight. And I think there were about a total of 6 pax in J and 30 in Y on that flight. Could easily have done one bus

  • I get why people are worried about no passport or whatever. I usually fly in cargo pants (not for this reason - mainly because it's easier at airports etc). But I keep my passport, mobile and if travelling with any meds that matter those, in my pockets during take off and landing. Taking a bag or...

  • I took the Shanghai Maglev just for the fun of it 2 weeks ago. Paid for business class (knowing it was a waste) and got the cabin to ourselves. The train was fairly empty in cattle class too.

  • What a simple and perfect solution. Yes I totally agree QF F seats MUST have 2 oxygen masks. They have 2 seatbelts. And if a visitor is in the booster seat when seatbelt sign goes off they are required to stay there. Same as J lounge. Wherever there is a seat belt I would bet $ there will be a ma...

  • Sydney QF First Lounge experience.

    AKL 1ST Lounge has good service but is otherwise a very meh offering.   In this situation I would be pretty tempted to fly to Syd the night before and get a cheap overnight hotel nearby and get to 1st lounge at opening time. Yes it's worth it.  On your proposed timetable I ser...
