So slick! So sexy! So stylish and modern! Too bad that its probably cheaper to stay at the Burj Al Arab than to get into those nap rooms, but goddamn they look good.That said, Swiss First Class needs to start having Fondue Service, at least in the lounge.

Presumably the demand for seats, and for premium seats, outstrips what an NZ A321 can provide?

Thanks for the info. Noon? Now I'm sad. Ahh well...

Its a monopoly route and Qantas get lots of premium traffic on it, so I think its profitable. They wouldn't have upgauged it to an A380 (from the 747ER which used to operate it) if it weren't profitable for them. DFW is AA's biggest hub so they get lots of feed.

Will be using this on the 17th. I hope the Cantina opens early...

The product is pretty similar to the Etihad Business Studio. The layout is effectively the same. The only difference is more flexible privacy screens and the added door.Its a cool product though.

I don't know what they'll do. However, I think it is quite possible Air New Zealand will go for the A350.The A350 will give them a replacement for all of their 777s (the 200ERs and 300ERs), with wider seats than Qantas (and we all know Air NZ makes quite a bit from Australian tourists connecting ...

Virgin's results are rather sad; they're a good airline and competition is healthy for the aviation market. I honestly don't know how Virgin can 'fix' themselves but I do think an obvious problem they have, and even they recognize having it, is that they have an excessively complicated fleet...
Feb 18, 2017, 01.40 PM / What's your take on today's Virgin Australia results and announcements?
From what I know, Virgin's domestic operations are pretty profitable; its the international ops where they are getting hammered. Correct me if I'm wrong here.The 737 Max is thus arguably not really necessary just yet. They have relatively new 737-800s so that puts them on parity with QF. They can...
