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...

You want a separate section for Plats just walled off with some plants and a screen? Geeze - imagine how that would go down in Oz. In AUH Etihad maintained a reserved area for the 'higher-ups' during the period while rebuilding their First lounge. You can get away with that in the Middle-East,...

Been a while since I've been at a QP but VA's Grinders coffee beats the Vittoria I recall at Q. VA's recent decision to close the second espresso location at SYD was dud one. Q's Bircher was always pretty good but I've copped maybe one too many Cardomom pods.

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.

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.
