The new lounges look great but I think it's a shame there is no real added lounge 'perk' for Plats/OW Emeralds in any of them anymore. Even if they did something similar to what CX did with The Pier when they had closed the First Class lounge for renovation and F/Emeralds used the Pier Busi...

It looks like the same(ish) seat as Qatars to be launched 'super business class'?

Rusty1 re BA lavs. Nope, the seat map must be wrong. On the 'super high J' there is a small cabin (rows 12-14) and a galley complex with three lavs. Behind this is a larger cabin that runs from doors two to three (rows 17-20) then doors three. And behind doors three another small cabin of two row...

Just flew BA LHR-JFK on one of its 747's with 86 business class seats. On the main deck there are 66 seats - and three toilets. Must be one of the worst ratios out there. On my return flight JFK - LHR I've made sure I selected a seat on the upper deck as its a night flight and I can ...

It is odd. I know during the QF/BA JSA both airlines had an agreement - Qantas wouldn't allow UK residents to join QF frequent flyer and BA wouldn't allow Australian residents to join Executive Club. Since the JSA disolved QF now allows UK residents to join their FFP but BA still hasn't changed...

Kayak is my absolute first 'go to'. It's just a search engine at the end of the day that allows you in one search to get the lowest price from hundred of sites. The only thing I would suggest is when you click to redirect to the selling site check the flight details very ver...

Jun 13, 2016, 07.54 AM / Access to the Amex lounge SYD if I have a "American" Amex
Not an expert moa999 but I guess it depends on what kind of bilateral agreement OZ/Indonesia has. For example Air Asia X flies MEL-DPS with A330's. These are registered to the Malaysian carrier, not the Indonesian carier Air Asia Indonesia (which only has A320's in the fleet). S...
