• Skytrax? Take it from someone in the 'know'. Take these awards with a grain of salt/he who pays the most :-)And neither Virgin nor AirNZ were anywhere in the top 10, uniqueaimartin

  • Does VA have a lifetime status programme btw?

  • Both airlines should be subject to the same restrictions on foreign ownership. Period. Forget about which airline you prefer. Both should be allowed to compete on a level playing field.  As for Qantas 'putting a nail in Ansett's coffin', I think you will find that was Air NZ.

  • Oh and yes, Spinoza, mouthwash is indeed used to kill oral germs, but wasn't this a thread over toothpicks, that cause you such angst? It's precisely the germ killing power of mouthwash which causes me to carry my own. So.............. And another dig at Qantas, now having poor load factors? You...

  • Let's face it, Wilsoni and Spinoza. You hate EVERYTHING about Qantas, as is reflected in EVERY post in this forum. Spinoza dislikes the new mattresses, thinks the food delivery is too slow, and now has a meltdown over no toothpicks? Both of you contribute absolutely nothing positive to any posts ...

  • I would have thought that the Flight Attendant offering you a mint was quite appropriate, rather than 'inane', if you're too lazy to carry your own mouthwash, Spinoza (yes, they do come in 100ml sizes). Further, Cathay having toothpicks is a cultural issue, because Asians generally tend to use t...
