I hate that we live in a world where this actually makes sense as a product.

Vermouth is extremely underrated, but this article is US-centric and you’ll have a lot of trouble trying to find some of these in Oz. Casta Mariol is an exceptional sweet vermouth though...Maidenii is a fantastic Aussie vermouth company and should be a bit easier to track down.
May 24, 2018, 12.12 PM / Vermouth makes a spirited return: here are five to try
Not a huge fan. I like low cost and full service carriers to be distinct. If I just want a cheap seat, then there’s nothing wrong with Jetstar or Tiger and that’s who I’ll fly.If I want a meal and baggage and just don’t want to have to worry about what’s include...

Yup, nothing about the airport is good. I try to stay a night in Bandar if I have the choice and that usually is still cheaper than other carriers.If you don’t have BND, customs officers will let you through to exchange currency. Dry airline isn’t a problem, if you can’t go 8...

Hopefully they keep their prices low. Flown them many times when I could only afford the cheapest, and they're an excellent airline. Brunei Airport is still a problem though, so you'd still want to leave the airport on the return journey.Would welcome a return to Brisbane.

Depends what you're looking for. If you want a super-luxurious experience, then it's not for you.If you want an exceptional value ticket that earns you a good amount of Qantas points/status, and flies you around the world in decent comfort, then you can't go past them.

Usually no, but it does happen.Some airlines do occasionally do deals with agencies for very cheap fares, but I've never been able to get them.If I find a really good fare then I check with a travel agency to see what they can do. Usually booking with an agency causes me issues (being unable to s...

They're excellent. Muscat airport is a let down, but everything else is top notch.

Makes no real difference to me, except on BA when you have to look your neighbour directly in the eyes and try not to fall in love with them.
Jun 05, 2018, 01.25 PM / Not facing forward on takeoff?
Never really thought they made much money despite high load factors, they lacked the economies of scale. I really enjoyed their service, but often times it felt a bit like a mum & pop business.Without direct flights from ROK to OOL, my commute has just gotten crazy long again, so I will miss ...
