Love the new colour and the quality looks excellent. I much prefer a vee-neck top but that is a small quibble.

Yes, it is. Qantas didn't "give" me those points. I earned them.

I can't see any difference between taking eighteen months off to travel, or eighteen months off for a sabattical, or eighteen months off to have a child, or eighteen months off to care for an elderly relative. Why not offer a one-time-only leave/pause for everyone?

YES! That's my point...why only parents? What gives them precedence over the rest of us? Why not offer (as both Medibank and Vodafone did) the opportunity to suspend your membership whilst you're away, regardless of the reason. Because most of my flights were international and not strictly...

The last time I flew BA you exited the window seat without having to climb over your seatmate because the seats are forward/back facing. Has that changed?

On a HGK-LHR or SIN-LHR run, which is the better business class? Cathay or BA? Looks like most of the aircraft are 777s, although BA is showing at least one A380 option. The BA site doesn't do a great job of showing off their seats which leads me to believe they are not quite as current as the CX...

I'm a former New Yorker. When I go back I generally stay at the Beacon Hotel on Broadway and 75th. It's my old neighbourhood of the Upper West Side. It's a former apartment building (people still live there, actually) and while it's a bit old the location is fantastic and the rooms have all been ...

I will be in Business class on an around-the-world ticket but my first destination is Edinburgh via Heathrow. I have taken this trip many times but not since the EK QF marriage. It has me a bit bamboozled, frankly, as I have no idea what to expect. Thanks for the advice. I think I may opt for...

Is it worth flying to Sydney to hop on the A380 to the Dubai hub, or should I just get on the 777 from Brisbane? I've never been on Emirates metal before and have usually taken Qantas via Singapore. I will be in Business Class.
