"Originally Posted by whoppersandwich A quick glance at the safety records of Lion group and Ethiopian will very quickly inform you on who (not what) is to blame. Yes, they made the mistake of buying Boeing.There are a number of professionals saying that the two incidents are likely related and l..."
"Originally Posted by djtech Ricardo, Singapore has only improved their first class. Their current suites on the a380 are industry leading and consistent on most of their fleet.The older suites are still nice and competitive with Emirates. On the 777 Emirates offers 2 different first class seats ..."

"Ditto! AusBT is a great source of information on diverse topics. Thanks for all the hard work and the great moderation (can't always be easy)Merry Christmas and may 2019 take you further"
"Always loaded and I've never not had them given on request.As for why you would on a 4 hour flight? that is one of the joys of First class travel - you don't need to sit there in your clothes, rather you can relax in comfort and put your clothes on 'fresh' at TOD."
"Originally Posted by kdewsnap Hi all,Virtually every trip I've made from Europe to Aus has been leaving Europe late at night and arriving early in the morning 2 days following, so I have my plan for that so I stay awake all day on landing and I find that really helps me combat jet-lag.I'm flying..."
"Never used the cubes but swear by the Korjo packing bags. When you pack 'right' it means that can save unpacking/repacking at every destination and 'live' directly out of the suitcase. Not only does it save a significant amount of time but the stuff you keep packed away for a different climate or..."
"Originally Posted by mannej Originally Posted by BigH You will be fine to use the lounge after your biz class flight. If you are Velocity Silver, you have 2 free entries included as well This is in the QF and JQ section... Interesting and genuine point. I didn't realise that there was a special..."
"We're over 50 and stayed in W's in Singapore, New York and elsewhere and loved them. If you want to stay in "American-Beige' chain hotels, then this is not for you. It is for people that don't want the same-old, same-old and like quirky/different."
"Originally Posted by anonymous A true loyal Qantas customer will pay whatever Qantas is asking. Very true, hence the 25-40% premium for the identical service. To me, making P1 is certainly not worth about $20k per annum (not even close)"
"The International hotel inside the terminals (1&3) is fantastic. Yes it costs a couple of hundred, but you get a real hotel, accessed from the same lift bank as the lounge. Much better than hanging out, through the wee hours, in a lounge (no matter how good it is)"
"It’s often the same with EK/QF. The QF8xxx’s are mostly 25-40% higher than the same EK flight in F. We’ve flown QF metal to Singapore on an EK flight number that was significantly cheaper than the same seat on a QF ticket.You do miss out on the chauffeur drive that way, but I..."
"Just found a curious quirk in Virgin's 'improved' website. It appears that most of the destination cities in Asia have gone "missing". Basically when you try to select a departure city in Asia you are only able to select from a range of cities in China along with Denpasar. There is no Singapore, ..."
