"Originally Posted by sgb Nice to see Emirates with 100+ A380's are ordering another 20. The A380 is the only way to fly long haul. Nothing comes close. I hope AJ goes the A350 because that’s as close as we’ll get to the delight of flying the A380. The A350 is current technology, a..."
"The Marriott by far. Emporium is very funky/trendy but the rooms a little too serviced apartment in style and feel. It is in a nice little precinct with some shops cafes etc. They will def need a taxi to get into the CBD from Emporium. Barack Obama stayed at the Marriott if that has an impact on ..."
"Turkish try really hard, lounges, catering and now aircraft - all excellent first rate carrier level but theres still something about the soft product in the air and on the round thats a little laboured and not quite 1st rate carrier level."

Even the LAX F lounge has nothing really redeeming or exclusive when compared with SYD or MEL F lounges. Premium pax offerings on board..."
"I hate the Qantas site when it show availability in J only to click on the little 'i" for it to say "your flight from Sydney to London will be in economy" but the LHR-MAN or LHR-AMS is in J. Very misleading and still charging premium points! "
"Transiting through DXB with QF in the past, it was always quite telling while in the F lounge at DXB....you could spot the Aussie travellers a mile away dressed like they were going on a Himalayan trek. This was compared to the generally smart/sophisticated dress of locals and other international..."
"Yes, always go on line, say sky scanner, and 7/10 times you'll find an on line travel agent with a cheaper fare than an airlines website. This is especially true for international fares. Even when Qantas, for example, is on sale I have 100% of the time always found that sale fare a few hundred do..."
