I think all of the above are great ideas, but as DrSK said due to 1. economics 2. Space since it's a single deck twin aisle 3. super tight weight margins to make the distance, a lot of the suggestions will likely not make it. Qantas will really need to think very much outside of the box to delive...

Such a shame that another icon of the skies is dead thanks to the world now being run by bean counters who only care about $$s and bonuses.Having flown on most Airbus and Boeing models made (except the old A300 and B707) the 380 is by far the best plane to fly in

I flew Brisbane to Auckland last week as well and gave the inflight wifi a good solid use for the entire 3hr flight. Definitely no dropouts and as mentioned the speed was quite impressive. I was able to multitask on my phone uploading short 30secs videos to social media, use chat apps and web bro...

Yeah Qantas in general is terrible because I've heard it sooo many times.The Air NZ rap one was terrible and seemed to take the piss out of safety.But the worst has to go to Emirates, it is so vanilla plain and boring and goes for what seems like 20 minutes.Air NZ and BA seem to have the best pas...

I used the card for a holiday euro trip and found it very easy to use. The exchange rate isn't great, but it's a good way to save a fair bit on fees.Depending on your destination, I believe you can open an account with ING in Aus that can be used in lots of countries around the world with no fees...

Super easy to transit. It's a busy airport but also very big spacious and well planned so nothing takes long.

I went to Bora Bora for my honeymoon 6yrs ago and absolutely loved it! Even Hollywood movies that show it as paradise don't do justice to how stunning it is.But be mindful that it's not a location you go to do things, as there isn't a whole lot to do outside of fishing or water sports. It's the p...
