• Priority Pass signs Brisbane lounge

    PP coverage of Australia is woeful. Case in point - New Zealand has more PP lounges than Australia.

  • "Thats because everyone is leaving NZ not arriving" You'd be wrong. https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/76475500/Exodus-to-New-Zealand-Kiwis-fleeing-back-home-joined-by-Australians 

  • I flew Aer Lingus a year or two ago and didn't notice any issues (they offer free wifi in J). I can't see four or five people on a Trans Tasman 737 (8 J seats only) slowing it down to a crawl.

  • Lounge Access for guests

  • They still have 767s, so hopefully after them!
