• Qantas, American to fly NZ-US

    I don't see how this makes sense. Sydney to LAX already seems saturated (but I guess they have more staistics on that front than I) and with direct flights by both operators, why would anyone fly via AKL?  Using the Adelaide or Peth markets would be a better option as these would also ...

  • What is the functional purpose for this all female toilet? Assuming even an equal split of male-female J-class passengers, the males will have a lower selection of lavatories to choose from.

  • The difference between Qantas Club and Domestic Business Lounge?What's the difference between the Sydney T3 qantas club and domestic business lounges? This is my first time travelling in domestic business. I can see that club members are not admitted into the latter so I'm assuming its better?

  • Crappy and least crappy US airports.

    Chicago-ORD and LAX (especially for transiting into domestic flight) are definitely the worst. SFO is not bad.A 'good' american airport is yet to surface.
