"As another poster said avoid Kuta and Legian is also pretty bad for the beaches, I stayed in Sanur late last year and really liked that area. Seemed more European tourists than Aussie there, the beaches were clean over there everyday. If I was to go back to Bali I would stay in Sanur, I did go..."
"I did a dummy booking a month or two ago when I read this and the 747 was in the schedule until March 19 which was the latest date I looked at. I think it was about a year after the 359 was originally due to start in MEL that is actually started"
"Hi All,I am going to Bali for a wedding later this year for the first time, I have booked business class tix Melbourne-Denpasar and wanted feedback on the lounge at DPS. I have heard its pretty average, but wanted to see what others in this group who have used it recently think. "
"More than likely something to do with that route only, did a check on another JQ route for similar dates and able to see J seats. Maybe that route is getting dropped from the network?"
"I think you can do it on the website, you select both legs as economy and then when you go to the next screen it has an upgrade to the next cabin class. Choose the leg you want to upgrade and it will give you a price. I did it over the weekend for a flight to Bangkok where I booked the return..."
"It happens alot, I always use check my trip so I get notified if the aircraft type changes. Maybe the flight wasnt fully sold, or the A330 was needed somewhere else in the network to replace another A330 which went tech."
"I havent flown them myself but a few friends have to London, they said for the price the service and food are pretty good. No alcohol served on board though if thats a factor for you. The lounge and airport in Brunei are pretty basic as well from the what I am told."
"I have found Costco to be one of the cheapest places for alcohol, but I suppose they arent in alot of states yet.I find them to be cheaper than Dan Murphys, and a fair bit cheaper than Duty Free."
"I am told by a friend at Qantas its also been a tradition to overnight in Hawaii on all Boeing Delivery flights. I am pretty sure Jetstar also did the same on the delivery flights for the 787-8"
"I have a booking in Mid august and its still showing as the A350 at the moment. Fingers crossed it stays that way, not that there is anything wrong with the 772ER which normally plies the route"
"My flight on August 15 has been changed to the A350 or so I was told by email last week, I am a little excited. Really want the see the seat map though."
"I did have something pop up in my facebook feed yesterday, I saw they signed a deal to buy something like 20 Bombadier aircraft. It is an interesting way for the Malaysian's to take with the downturn with MH."
