• It's also better for NH's aircraft utilization. Currently that 787 just sits in the tarmac in SYD for the whole day wasted.

  • The approval is conditional right? Maybe the condition is to ask VA not to pull out the route for 10 years. Otherwise it is so unfair to BNE/QLDer when we had a good chance of having NH and JL coming back to BNE. Now VA took the spot, JL and NH will go to other cities. In 18 months if VA drop the...

  • It'll be A350. Destitute Chang being a 777 pilot and his passion for Boeing, due to the complex relationship (enmity to be exact) he had with EVA, he chose to go with all Airbus fleet. So yeah, it was a mistake on the CG. Maybe the image was created when they designed the livery and assuming that...

  • Even if they adopt the staggered business class seats from A380, that's 10 years too late. Their rival QR had been using reverse herringbone (which IMO a better product than staggered) for a while now and is introducing much better Q-suite into their 777 fleets. Staggered seats are used by SQ now...

  • I have a JL flight ORD-NRT-SYD in mixed first and business class as NRT-SYD tops at business only. Will JL allow you to use fiat class lounge? I know many airline will but not sure about JL. I hope JL will bring back first class to SYD!

  • Forget velocity. I've given up on them 3 years ago. VA used to be very generous in releasing award seats to LAX. That's not the case anymore. You might be able to snatch a seat or two in the next week or so but nothing much pass 14 days. Even with partners, they've added crazy surcharges in Etiha...

  • There are several credit cards in Australia that earns AM. The best ones are Amex cards. The best earn rate (apart from invitation only Centurion) is Platinum charge card. It earns 1.125 AM per dollar spent (except government spent which only earns 0.5 AM). But it also has a hefty $1450 annual fe...

  • Most airlines don’t care about middle names. This is related to the old booking system that doesn’t allow special characters other than letters. Therefore, most airliners will allow you to check in as long as the first and last name matches.

  • VA isn’t suppose to be generous anyway. Never seen any J seats to LAX more than 7 days out.
