If anyone is in Edinburgh, I’d suggest heading to The Gin Company on North Bridge for an amazing retail selection of craft gins from across Scotland. Could you do look to do article on Australian craft gins? there are so many, just in South a Australia standouts include (imo) The green ant...

Can anyone clarify Qatar's current lounge access policy for those traveling on award seats? I Know that Qatar had made a few changes in the last 12 months so I'm unclear of if these tickets would grant flagship access, or i'd be forced to fall back on my OW status.

On reflection I can see how my last line could be construed as being critical in relation to the accuracy of the review. That certainly was not my intent so I apologise for that. I was attempting to imply I would have loved the lounge to be closer to your photos in terms of number of PAX ad gener...

I visited this lounge in June, mid-week before our flight EK355. The lounge was virtually standing room only and absolutely heaving with people. It did not make for a pleasant experience. This was compared to the QF lounge which, whilst busy, was serene by comparison. I was disappointed that I ha...

I think the lounge (And the QF inflight entertainment for that matter) would benefit greatly from having access to a range of live news channels from global sources (BBC, CNN, DW, Bloomberg TV etc) Even if you haven't plugged in your headphones, at least the news ticker will keep you aware of the...

It is very easy to transfer from Domestic to international. Especially if you are traveling on one ticket and do not need to transfer your bags by yourself. The international departures are from Gates 16 - 20 within the domestic terminal. These gates are closed off and opened throughout the day t...

If you like german food and beer I recommend the Augustiner brewery. It is a 5 -10 minute walk from central station. We went mid week for dinner and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is cheaper than the Hofbräuhaus and in our experience, admittedly in January, far less touristy too. The vibe was local bu...

I'd suggest that you should fly Singapore to retain your silver status, unless you have a really compelling reason to fly on the QF A380 which you haven't detailed? Some status is better than no status.

I think that family member should ‘accept their fate’ for a relatively short flight, especially if they aren’t paying. But separating that individual from the group booking so they are on their own ticket would be a good start. It’s been a while since I have flown JAL ...

Reaching QFF gold effectively grants Qantas Club membership. In situations where a QFF member is already a QC member prior to reaching gold, the countdown for the remaining time on their existing QC membership is paused. When and if you drop back to silver or bronze, the 3 months you had left on ...
