"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. Lion Air probably, but Ethiopian has a very good safety record (one of the reasons they've been able to grow is because they pay atten..."
"Korean Air hands down. The experience is fine...the food is very good, the seats are comfy enough, you get a good sleep if you want, plus direct flight. The service is very traditionally Korean which some might not interpret as particularly friendly but it is very efficient and accomodating. (If ..."
"Is an annoying thing. My review date is 11th October. On the 12th October I have a business class flight from JNB->BNE on SAA/VA, so I'm hoping I can talk them into letting me retain the status."
"There's a decent bench for sleeping as you head down towards the bus stop 13 hours in a lounge would do my head in and I don't think any of those lounges have sleeping areas.With that amount of time, I would go into the city and stay in the cheapest hotel I could find. The transit hotel at the ..."
"I would love it at the speeds to run Netflix or Youtube, flights would go so much quicker if I had access to my preferred entertainment.For work - I'd much rather not have Wifi. As soon as I'm connected to internet I just get distracted and accomplish nothing. I don't really work on planes much (..."
"Never done it for business, but spent a bit of time in Malabo. I flew from Casablanca (was working in Nouakchott at the time). Royal Air Maroc and Air France are your reliable options. The colonial power was Spain, so there are likely flights there.Using a visa service such as visalink is probabl..."
"No experience with Delta, but Korean experience has been positive. I’m not sure if it’s the best earn or redemption rates, but it has great customer service and super easy to redeem flights or upgrades. Korean Air is a great airline and I used to fly them all the time, I miss it!"
"If it's business class I think you'll getpoints and status no problem. Selecting seats on Chinese airlines has never worked for me (they all seem to use the same system/website) so either call or just wait until check in. I started booking through a travel agent and they're able to select seats.H..."
"Away Travel does great bags. The standard color ones scatch (cosmetically) a little easily but they are the best laid out suitcases I've used.They do aluminium ones but I'm not sure if they're worth the cost advantage over the excellent standard ones."
"Definitely not illegal to sleep in what is comfortable, though I eschew pyjamas. The first time I was on a flight that provided pyjamas I absolutely worte them, but I had to wake up considerably earlier to join the queue of people to change back. However I don't wear suits on a plane - usually a ..."
"Perth's "famous" attractions for me growing up there were Kings Park (great views, nice park) and the Bell Tower. Bell Tower is showing it's age a little now, but the tour was good from memory (I loved it as a kid, less so as a teenager but I was a grumpy teen). I still love the building though. ..."
"Originally Posted by EKdevotee Emirates already serves North Africa quite well. They are more reliable than RAM, and offer a one stop flight from Australia to Casablanca in better aircraft. Unless of course one world benefits are more important. Emirates serves North and (particularly) West Afr..."
