Praise the Lord! At last! I'm so happy - not just because it gives me a new option for my flights, but also because it alleviates the shame I've had in recent years over my national carrier and former employer (back in "the good old days").
Mar 18, 2019, 09.46 PM / British Airways' new business class is a suite with a privacy door
A great article David; I agree with everything; this is the best J. I was worried about claustrophobia, but the suites are much more spacious than I was expecting, so I felt very comfortable

Fair points overall Joe, except I think their F is superb.

I love flying on the A380. Except, of course, flying backwards in a centre seat overnight on BA's sardine yin-yang layout. They binned the email about space and luxury.
Sep 19, 2018, 07.32 PM / Here's how the Airbus A380 changed the premium travel experience
I was tempted by a low J fare on TK last year but was very disappointed and won't fly them again. Seats (2-2-2 onA330), crew, food and wine were all well below my preferred QR

I've had similar issues. But now I have insurance cover through my Amex Platinum. The card fee is less than my insurance quotes.

Wear what you like mate, but respect the Islamic culture on the MH flight. When on airlines that don't give out PJs to J class, I enjoy wearing their competitors' PJs. Similarly, if cabin crew don't lower cabin temp to a comfortable level, I'm happy to go topless to make a point.
Dec 12, 2018, 09.23 PM / Sleeping on flights: pyjamas vs underwear or shorts only
I feel compelled to argue that infants shouldn't be allowed in F because of the noise they make. I'm self funded and I choose to pay a lot of money to travel up front in order to get rest and sleep. On my last overnight LHR-MCT in F on BA I got zero sleep because of a noisy child. Not an infant i...
Oct 11, 2018, 08.03 PM / Flying with a baby in Qantas First Class
I would say Go for it if you can get the F seats. But I was very unhappy with MH J class on A350 last month - their new product is so cramped. Only good if you get a single/throne seat, but all starboard paired seats are very difficult to get into and out of (at any time, not just when trying to ...
Jul 27, 2018, 06.21 PM / Malaysia Airlines Airbus A350 flying to Sydney
My company's policy was to only allow us to accept gifts which could sit on our office desk. So when an Italian firm gave me a pen many years ago I felt it was OK to accept it. At the time I wasn't aware of the brand Mont Blanc, or its value, and when I became aware of it I was very pleased with ...
