There’s the Humidiflyer, made by an Aussie company. I never fly without it now.

Yes that’s precisely it. December 2017 when they had the A380s on the route without selling first.

The RTW is wonderful, as I’m sure many can attest to. Flew LHR-HKG-XIY-HKG-BNE-SYD-NRT-JFK-LHR all fitting around existing work/holiday plans. Got to try out Cathay J for the first time; the Qantas A380 in the first suites for the price of Business, the JAL business suites (favourite seats...

I had held out on trying Emirates a380 business for years until last month and really enjoyed it. 23A in the front frow of the rear cabin felt very private, I could store everything in the substantial side bins near the window, and got some good, uninterrupted sleep. Surprisingly, I thought the b...

I recently completed the status match to Platinum Medallion flying China Southern and KLM exclusively. Was able to use non-Deta skyteam lounges and avail myself of Elite Plus perks during the 90 day challenge period.

Just flew Asiana LHR-ICN-SYD and was happy. Good seats (pretty standard for business class these days), direct aisle access and really impeccable service. Asiana lounges in ICN are nothing special but would happily fly them again (and indeed, will do, on the return leg.)

Feb 01, 2019, 09.16 AM / Krisflyer or Asiana Club: what would you choose?
Hi all,I’m diversifying a bit this year and did a big spreadsheet of my Star Alliance flights. I’ll earn Star Alliance Gold with both Krisflyer and Asiana by June and can’t decide where to credit. Any ideas? I’m based in London with quite a lot of travel to China and a...
Feb 01, 2019, 12.28 AM / Krisflyer or Asiana Club: what would you choose?
Being London based and working quite a few weeks in Xi’an each year, the new LHR-XIY is super convenient. Both trips I’ve taken with them have been on the old A330 with 2-2-2 seating but the service is great, even over the top (stowing my hand luggage in the overhead lockers, trying...

CX F lounge is the all around best; quiet, great shower suites, a couple of different champagnes (which Qantas doesn’t make available for Platinums). Also the ala carte menu can be very good. Still, I like to perch myself at the Qantas gin bar for a couple of drinks before the CX lounge. T...
