Rail is of course a great idea, I'm a big user of Syd CityRail to airport and Bris' Airtrain. I much prefer those options to your generally odorous taxi. However unsure why the dislike for Skybus, which is pretty efficient. I'd rather be paying $19 for a Skybus in peak hour traffic than $50 in...
Jul 24, 2018, 09.20 AM / Melbourne Airport Rail Link: here’s what you need to know
I suspect the rule is to stop flyers who flew in during the A.M. returning in the evening, ensuring they are partaking of F&B at their airport hotel rather than the lounge. Certainly there is no ability to conduct an audit once you have entered. Seems petty.
Jun 18, 2018, 11.08 AM / Virgin Australia expands 'on arrival' lounge access, with a catch
I'm certainly not criticising my seat mate's choice or her right to order it, but were it free she'd have the bottle in hand and the crew would be done. Swiping a mobile terminal takes time (although we can marvel at the tech allowing it).
May 24, 2018, 02.16 PM / Qantas is looking at 'buy on board' for meals, inflight movies
The simple choice of chicken, beef or quinoa is time-efficient. When cabin crew have to swipe a card and deal with pax making a paid-for choice it slows service to a crawl. Earlier this week on VA the women beside me ordered some wine and there was a noticeable delay - all those rows behind wer...

Points upgrade for a lowly Gold? You are kidding John, dm12 would have to fight off the WP1s & WPs first. Love the way the author wants to turn the place into his own private spa, those WPs booking JQ flights won't be happy. Remember when Joyce grounded the fleet? (Who could forget). The...
Apr 06, 2018, 02.06 PM / Why the Qantas first class lounge needs to be much more 'exclusive'
Thanks Jorge, a definite win for VA Platinums and at least Golds are now accommodated as well. But it is interesting Qantas Frequent Flyers can't access this lounge themselves despite being an Emirates partner. Slightly amusing I guess.
Mar 22, 2017, 11.59 PM / Virgin Australia Platinum flying Business. LAX Lounge options
I dropped by The Wing and wasn't overly impressed. Crowded. Posting this from The Pier now - worth it if you have time to get here, it's a significant walk. Very impressive lounge.
