• When flying in business I typically fly with a colleague or client on about 50% of my flights and as such prefer without a door for the social interactions. I am also a good sleeper so don't require the door for that aspect. The opposite is true when travelling in first class and I prefer a ...

  • There are so many questions still to ask and so much research that still needs to be undertaken. What happens if the vaccine is only 70% effect? That would be enough to encourage people to take it as long as the side effects weren't horrendous,as this would save lives. But would international ope...

  • I used to love the convenience of this airport. When I was living near Canary Wharf I once left home 70 minutes before my 8am flight, got to LCY and realised I didn't have my passport. Still managed to get a taxi home and back and make my flight. Another 'memorable' experience was taking 12 minut...

  • I am in the weird position that I am more likely to be able to achieve Lifetime Gold, rather than retain Gold in the next 18 months. I am now based in Singapore and 'only' need 1500 status credits for Lifetime Gold. I think that will be easier than four flights with Qantas

  • 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 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...
