• Sorry to put a dampener on the discussion but I just don't see the economics stacking up. The existing fleet can already reach all major hubs in the world, with the exception of London and New York. So there are only three reasons to purchase the plane: flying to London, flying to New York and to...

  • I don't see this working unless one way is overnight and the opposite way a day flight. With the finances the way they are, VA can not afford to have planes waiting around Tokyo all day

  • There are eight new aircraft between 2022 & 2027 but they are retiring eight aircraft by 2025. There are at least two years where Air New Zealand have less aircraft. than they currently have. That does no bode well for more routes

  • With this morning's news I see this as a bit of a backward step. Not in terms of aircraft but in terms of rollout. I think the 787 makes commercial sense (and hopefully you are not travelling in economy). With the first of the eight arriving in 2022 and the last of the eight arriving in 2027, the...

  • Test drive: Jaguar i-Pace

    Good article and the car looks great. I am still trying to understand what is under the bonnet though. I understand there is no engine but I cant imagine that the drivers foot well takes up all the space. Is there a small storage area?

  • I am a Qantas Gold travelling to Paris for Christmas with British Airways. On the way back I have a 8 hour layover in London (all one ticket). I am looking to check in a further bag in London with Christmas presents from the family. This is in addition to the one I will have checked in in Paris. ...

  • Ryanair- Can it be done?

    Jun 24, 2019, 05:29 PM

    I have flown them regularly when the flight times are suitable. Once you accept that they are a low cost airline and that there often issues, half the battle is won. What winds me up with Ryanair, and most low cost airlines, is that if you purchase the ticket less than a month from your flight th...

  • 45 minutes is just way too tight and would not recommend it. In saying that I can highly recommend the airport and the staff in Hong Kong if you have a single booking with a connecting flight and the first flight is delayed.A couple of years back I got off a CX flight from SYD connecting with a K...

  • Reasons to not fly business?

    Nov 26, 2018, 04:38 PM

    I fly for work business class but I regularly get economy when I am with my family. My son is 4 years old and does not take up much of a seat. It seems a waste using extra points when I have an artificially enlarged seat. Being Qantas platinum and Singapore PPS Solitaire I almost always get loung...
