You'..."

Which spa treatment at the Qantas first class lounge?

"I did the Melbourne Special which was OK, not that I'm an expert on massages. On the morning I was in the First Lounge, only First Class pax who had booked over the phone the day before were getting in. It was fully booked from 8AM until 11:30 so Platinums etc were all missing out."

What is the world's second best business class?

"It gets pretty subjective especially given the preponderance of Rockwell Super Diamond and Thomson Vantage XL seats across a number of airlines meaning the hard products are very similar. It would probably be easier to develop a Top 10 and, were you to do so, I think both VA and QF would make ap..."

Where are the Virgin Australia award seats to LA?

"Originally Posted by Flying High Velocity used to be really good, but availability dried up around the same time the new Business Class was introduced.

Qantas Club members lose Emirates Dubai lounge access?

"It would be strange if one week from the change, QF still haven't announced this or updated their website. QF advertises its EK partnership as a way to use Qantas for one stop access to Europe and the Middle East. If they are making this change, this will no longer be the case and the partnersh..."

Details of the Qantas Boeing 787 delivery flight

"7AM Friday arrival into SYD could've been quite easily done nonstop with a 10PM Wednesday departure from Seattle.  I assume they are picking up VIPs and press in HNL hence the stopover.  Even then, I expect the plane will be fairly empty with only pax in J class. (Don't think VIPs would..."

Qantas to convert remaining A380 orders to A350-900ULR?

"Freight is a limited issue when considering freight.  Heavy freight is rarely that time dependant.  ULR is very much a niche market so QF (and other airlines) are more interested in what sort of premium traffic they can attract rather than freight (or Y class for that matter). The freig..."
