• Qatar, JetBlue, and American have 2-2 lie-flats on a32X aircraft.  They're not that much wider than the 737s, so i think it would be doable.

  • 'easy connections onward to the UK, Croatia, and the USA.'  Sweet!  The big 3!

  • I think QF oversold this a bit, but it looks like one of those things where the proof will really be in how it feels. A fully supported cradle-like position is the most ideal position for premium economy, in my opinion, and even AirNZ's new seats (with 42 or so inches of pitch) don't really accom...

  • I had access to the Skyclub on a LAX - DEN return flight (no international legs) with VA Gold. You will have to be able to show your Velocity card (we used the apps), because even though our status was printed on the tickets they needed to see the card.

  • Would I clear Customs/Immigration in CLE or LAX? [/QUOTE]There is no 'exit immigration' in the US the same way there is in Australia.  Exit immigration is automated and back-end in the United States, so you do not have to queue or get your passport checked on the way out.

    I think you're missing the obvious. "Like a Virgin."  On Repeat.  The whole flight.

  • BA / QF Status Credit question

    For maximum status credits, why not LHR - TXL - OSL - DOH - NRT - SIN - PER - MEL - SYD. In for a pound, in for 100 pounds
