It looks...interesting. Will have to see actual pictures with real people inside, but lounges aren't Korean Air's strong suit.

While the debates about the usefulness could go on and - “people can live without them” is a bad argument as I can also live without a lie flat bed in business class or indeed without a shirt. People like their luxuries. My smart luggage has been a lifesaver on a few occasions.The a...

You can just replace the battery on my Away suitcase...And it’s very useful, much moreso than a portable battery bank, which I’ve largely stopped carrying. Though even without the battery, it’s a fantastic suitcase first and foremost.

Everyone wishes they flew to Brisbane! Hopefully they can get more frequencies soon. I known Akbar was in discussions to start at OOL several years ago, and they’re allowed to fly there, but the business case mustn’t have added up.

This has now been refuted by MH, the Hajj flights will apparently still go ahead, even though the A380 will indeed go seasonal on London, Sydney, Seoul etc

I just don't see the point of telling other people what they can wear, unless its an actual safety hazard. The shoes I'm walking around in would have to be way more unhygienic than my bare feet. You fail to state what the actual problem is in your original post. Do you fear for the thongs-wearer'...

I’ve not had a problem with Chip & Pin anywhere - from Kyrgyzstan to Portugal to Mauritania to Suriname. In some countries Chip, Pin and Signature is required and in some very few cases photo ID is needed with all credit card transactions.The exception of course is the USA, where chip ...

While these things are frustrating there's probably not a lot you can do. You'll maybe get some token bonus points as compensation. The reason being weather pretty much gets QF entirely off the hook. They don't have catering facilities in Al Ain, so getting food would not have been easy, but it w...

I like JetGo, their ROK to OOL route has saved days of my life that would otherwise be spent in commute from BNE. I would love to see them codeshare with QF or VA.BNE-KTA makes a lot of sense a lot of the time - the high number of FIFO workers from QLD should make it a reasonable success. I don...
