Eurobusiness works commercially for two reasons. 1. Almost all of the airlines flying it are the only full-service carrier operating out of their home country, so dominate business travel, with the main competition on routes being LCCs. 2. A good proportion of travellers in Eurobusiness are ...
Feb 18, 2019, 11.21 PM / SWISS Airbus A320 business class (Zurich-London)
Worth noting that if you are transiting from a long haul to a short haul flight, only the B gate lounges have showers (SQ, UA, AC), the LH ones don't - which means if you like freshening up before the final couple of hours to your destination, you need to trek out to the B gates then back again, ...
Feb 15, 2019, 09.17 PM / London Heathrow T2 Star Alliance business class lounges
BA emeralds don't get access to the Concorde Room either, unless they reach Gold Guest List. QF WPs have full access to the same facilities BA emerald do at BA locations, BA emerald can't use the business class dining room at the club lounge at JFK either, but can access the first lounge, as can...
Feb 12, 2019, 09.43 PM / The rise of the 'business class only' airport lounge
and Virgin Atlantic promised a gym, a cinema and beauty parlour, with double beds on its A380s..... what WILL probably happen is there will be 4 first seats (dubbed suites with closing doors), a lot of business class seat and premium economy, with a small lounge area because the need for fuel wil...
Jan 27, 2019, 08.09 AM / Qantas: cafes, gyms and 'chill zones' for non-stop 20 hour flights
If you want a short transit time, try NZ1/2 AKL-LAX-LHR. The LAX transit involves disembarking, going through passport control and then through security again before returning to the departure lounge. This can take 30 minutes or well over an hour.Frankly, as long as I have time to get a shower ...
Jan 22, 2019, 09.57 AM / Are some transit times simply too short for the traveller?
There is almost no benefit to the status for Ibis hotels, but it is reasonable for Mercure, Pullman and Sebel. You'll get a room upgrade if available, which is nice, and the single drink voucher will be house wine or beer, so the range is limited. I have Accor Platinum, had Gold before, but tha...
Jan 09, 2019, 09.50 PM / Accor Gold Recognition
ADL is a relatively low yielding market (i.e. proportion of business class long haul seats sold out of there is much lower than other state capitals). This is one reason there is no Qantas Business Lounge here, but there is in SYD, MEL, BNE, PER and CBR. HBA is similar.
Oct 24, 2018, 04.42 PM / Why doesn't Qantas fly internationally from Adelaide?
Qatar have been "nickel and diming" champagne over recent years, dropping to Lanson then Pommery in the past year, and it shows - but the hard product is what makes the difference. NZ has gone up a level to have Laurent Perrier NV which is very decent, and even BA has been lifting its game in ch...
Sep 17, 2018, 10.59 PM / Qantas Business Class champagnes
Agree with all of the above, plus consider time of day. The differences in food between the Wing F and the Pier F are lesser over breakfast. The Pier F is easily better than the Wing F, but if your connecting gate is a low number then you have a good 15 minute walk from the Pier to the lower ga...
May 29, 2018, 09.13 PM / Hong Kong transit - which Cathay Pacific lounge to visit?
Originally Posted by GMG So if I am flying AMS - FRA (2+ hours transit) - EWR I don't get to try the FCT? You can if you want to, usually passengers would just go in transit and head to one of the First Class Lounges (which are good too, with similar standards of catering), but yes you wouldn't...
Feb 01, 2018, 02.49 AM / Lufthansa First (747-8 and/or A380) worth the upgrade?
