I'm flying BNE/PER on QF589 on September 20th. The aircraft is listed as a 787/9. As usual I bought flexible economy and requested an upgrade to business class. As a Gold FF this is usually done immediately but this time I'm in the queue. I wonder why? Anyway it's interesting to see the Dreamline...

There's QF9 which I'll be traveling on in mid April. It leaves PER at about 7:00 pm local time and lands at LHR at 5:00 am in the morning. I've got 16 hours in the air and it's how I break up the eight hours of sleep and the eight hours awake that I'm interested in. Thanks to a previous post whic...

I used the concourse B lounge in 2017 and found it similar to the description above for 'C'. There was limited seating, food was so-so and it was noisy and crowded.

The J lounge is even worse. The last time I used it I also had access to the Emirates lounge which was a no brainer for me.

Just completed a two month tour of the UK and made sure I had a VPN - in this case the already mentioned ExpressVPN. I got it so i could access Foxtel Go which is geoblocked. The VPN became even more important when I found that my Aussie ATM card wouldn't work in UK ATMs (I still don't know why) ...

I am flying QF9 in J next month and it lands at 5:00 am. I am entitled to chauffeur drive but can't choose the pick up time on the Qantas website. After I land I want to use the AA arrivals lounge for a shower and a bite to eat before heading into London. There was a thread a few months ago where...

MY experience of the A lounge was not good. Crowded, smelly, ordinary food and a queue for the toilets.

That is great information, thank you very much.

Thanks for the reply regarding the AA Lounge. All I have to do now is check if I can choose my own time for the chauffeur drive.
